Normal dishwasher sounds and noise

Normal Operating Noises:

It is normal to hear some noise as the dishwasher runs through the cycle. Below are a few common noises that are normal to hear while the dishwasher is running. 

Rushing Water Noise:

It is normal to hear a sound similar to water rushing while the dishwasher fills and cleans. The amount of sound is dependent on the installation. Dishwashers installed on the ends of cabinet rows may allow more sounds to be heard than ones installed between two cabinets.

Swishing Water Noise:

It is normal to hear a sound similar to water swishing as the water is sprayed on the dishes during the cycle. 

Humming Noise:

It is normal to hear a humming noise during the operation of the dishwasher. This noise is heard when the dishwasher drain pump is running.
