I have a Whirlpool Gold quiet Partner III Mod GU2455X SER FU0303181.

Customer Question

I have a Whirlpool Gold quiet Partner III Mod GU2455X SER FU0303181. It has developed a sort of buzzing noise in all cycles. It still washes the dishes, but seems to take longer, both to get started as well as for the timing lights to come on. Could it be something stuck in the macerator/pump impeller? If so where do I find them? Is there on on-line repair manual?

Buzzing sound begins as soon as the machine is turned on. It seems to be coming from the lower left bottom corner of the machine. It happens on all cycles(glass wash/rinse/power wash). It stops when the drain pump starts up. To me it sounds like a clutch or a solenoid is malfunctioning, yet I can hear the washer arm spraying water.
