    If your dishwasher makes an unusual noise, always check the user manual for details on your specific appliance, but the steps below will help give you some general guidance.
  • 1.

    A buzzing noise heard at the start of a program may be due to the water supply being off. Check that the water tap to the dishwasher is turned on (the ‘on’ position is normally when the tap handle is pointing at or in-line with the water supply hose).

  • 2.

    Check that the water inlet pipe is not kinked or crushed behind or under the dishwasher.

  • 3. Noises can also be caused by crockery and utensils rattling against each other or being knocked by the spray arms. Always make sure that items are correctly loaded and not obstructing the spray arms.
    See the “Correct loading of the dishwasher” topic for further information.
  • 4. Sometimes, even too much detergent or the wrong type of detergent can create additional noise inside the dishwasher. Always make sure that you use proper dishwasher detergent and that you put the correct amount in your appliance. Check the details in the user manual for recommendations for your specific dishwasher.
