Samsung dishwashers are known for their powerful features that make cleaning dishes a breeze. Whether you’re facing a pile of dirty pots and pans or a few delicate glasses, it will get the job done quickly and easily. However, sometimes you may find your Samsung dishwasher making noise. If you are experiencing this issue, don’t worry! We have compiled a list of possible causes and solutions for you.

Potential Reasons For Your Samsung Dishwasher Making Noise

Ready to cut out the sound in your kitchen and stop your Samsung dishwasher making noise? Let’s learn what could be causing the problem.

Reason #1: The Dishwasher Is Overloaded

If your dishwasher is overloaded with dishes, they can bang around and make a noise while the dishwasher is running. To fix this, simply remove some of the dishes from the dishwasher and try again. Try to keep the dishwasher below 3/4 full if this is the problem.

Reason #2: Spray Arm Is Blocked

If you’re wondering “why is there a loud banging noise from my Samsung dishwasher” check the spray arm! If the dishwasher’s spray arm is blocked, it will not be able to rotate properly and this can cause a knocking noise as the spray arm tries to move. To fix this, remove anything that may be blocking it. Run it again and see if that fixes the noise.

Reason #3: The Drain Hose Is Clogged

If your dishwasher’s drain hose is clogged, it will have to work harder to pump water out of the dishwasher. This can cause the Samsung dishwasher to make noise louder than usual. To fix this, simply unclog the drain hose. You can do this by using a plumbers snake or brush. If you can’t reach the clog you may need to buy a new hose.

Reason #4: Issues With the Dishwasher Valve

If you have a squealing noise from a Samsung dishwasher, it could be because of an issue with the dishwasher valve. The valve is responsible for controlling the water flow into the dishwasher. If it is not working correctly, it can cause the dishwasher to squeak as it’s trying to push water through.

To fix this, you will need to replace the valve. Use your dishwasher’s model number to locate the correct replacement part, although we highly recommend professional repair service for a bad inlet valve.

Reason #5: Issues With the Dishwasher Pump

If your Samsung dishwasher is making a loud humming noise, it could be because there is something wrong with the dishwasher pump. There could also be something caught inside the pump causing it to malfunction. If your dishwasher has an easily accessible pump you can try checking yourself to see if there’s anything stuck inside. If not, or if the pump is broken you will likely need a professional’s help.

As you can see, there are a few different reasons for your Samsung dishwasher making noise. Luckily, most of these issues are easy to fix on your own. However, if you’re still having trouble, you can always contact a professional for help. We hope this article was helpful and that you are now able to fix the noise in your dishwasher.
