This sound happens immediately when the start button is pressed. It is not the sound of the water inlet valve and water entering the machine. I checked for blockage of the circulation pump, and could find none. Strange, since there should be no pump sound until the fill has occurred. ??????


Corrected brand from KitchenAid to Frigidaire

Dishwashers start with a drain to clear standing water. Only then does it start filling.

Check the drain pump for foreign objects and/or internal damage.

BTW PLD2850RDC0 is a Frigidaire d/w not KitchenAid.
