Resolved Question:

My neff dishwasher (model S5443X2GB/44 FD No 8309) is making a loud "whining" sound during the cycle. I think it is happening when the pump runs. The dishwasher does drain. I have checked the pump and it is clean and running freely. Any suggestions?

Cheers,

Hello,
Thank you for using JustAnswer!
If you have any questions after reading my answer,be sure to let me know.

A whining noise coming from your dishwasher can be annoying. It can also be a symptom of a problem with the pump and motor in your machine. This symptom boils down to one or two causes. Often the filter that leads to the pump assembly clogs with sediment and makes a noise. A failing motor will also whine. Neither issue means you need a new dishwasher. Check the filter first for clogs, and, if necessary, buy a pump and motor assembly for your model washer. You can do the installation yourself.
