Customer Question

KitchenAid dishwasher Model KUDS01IL:      This unit has always been very quiet. Just in the past week or so the dishwasher has begun to make more noise than normal. Sounds like a rumbling or hum noise. Happens with a full or empty load. During soak and drain cycles it is as quiet as normal.      ALSO noticed the cycle clock does not seem to count down as quickly since the noise started. Not sure if the heating element is working properly?

it sounds like you might have debris stuck down in the screen and hitting the chopper. You need to remove the lower spray arm and then the filter. You will see a domed cover in the sump on the left side. Remove the cover then clean the screen.

OK I'll go look
Expert:  Appliance Man replied 5 years ago.
let me know.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
i have removed the screen & the accumulator assy. and found a foreign screw and a couple of large seed on top of the "foreign protector". I the removed the foreign prot3ector and found a sliver of broken glass. Should i remove the "inlet protector" cover to look further? if so ... i see the screw and removed it but the cover appears to snap in and i don't see the release? I assume that is the cover you mentioned over the chopper and the glass was slid underneath that piece. how do i release that?
Expert:  Appliance Man replied 5 years ago.
use a pilers and pull up.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Got it ..... the chopper assembly is broken (nylon shaft). I'm thinking the piece of glass stopped bound up the chopper & broke the shaft?? I did recover a spring, 2 stainless washers and both peices of the shaft from the impeller. Please let me know: 1- what to inspect for related damage or any other recommendations while i'm at this point. The impeller looks OK but open to your advise. 2- does the entire sump assembly need to be removed to replace these componants. THANKS for your time, please stay with me & I'll pay more than the "normal" fee. You're saving me a bunch!

any comments as to the rest of the question?
Expert:  Appliance Man replied 5 years ago.
You can just replace the screen from the inside. You shouldnt need to replace anything else. The chopper breaks before any other damage will happen.

Not sure how this happened, but it appears this is keeping me from recieving any other help? So guess I'll accept it. FYI Dishwasher is working GREAT.
