    Default Maytag Dishwasher Loud grinding noise

    Model Number: MDB4000AWB
    Brand: Maytag
    Age: 6-10 years

    My Maytag Dishwasher Model # MDB4000AWB Ser # 17523873UW is making a very loud whining noise when starting. No water is dispensed and sounds like spinning gears.
    What does this sound like?

    Hi,

    No water is dispensed
    It is not filling?

    and sounds like spinning gears
    All the time or only in certain spots of the cycle?


    Some not filling helps and tips..

    The noise would have to be investigated....broken support (11), cracked wash impellor (14), something hard grind against the food chopper blade (18)...

    Default Loud noise in Maytag dishwasher

    Correct. It is not filling.

    All the time or only in certain spots of the cycle?
    As soon as the unit is turned on, the aweful sound is heard!

    Do you have a step by step instructions to dis assemble? I have no clue how to troubleshoot without.

    Jeff:

    If the fill valve and/or float is bad, would it make that AWEFUL noise upon start-up?
