A Samsung dishwasher and a sound wave

While Samsung dishwashers are designed to operate quietly, they are not completely silent. Loud or unusual noises may indicate a need for action. Since dishwasher noises can be random and intermittent, consider recording the noise for service purposes. This guide covers steps to potentially avoid the need for service.

Note: For information about the decibel levels of your dishwasher, visit the dishwasher's product page on the Samsung website and check its specifications for sound level (described in dBA).

A low humming or buzzing sound is normal. However, loud humming, buzzing, or grinding noises may indicate something caught in the drain pump's impeller.

Check the water supply:

  • Ensure it is connected and turned on.

  • Verify it meets the requirements listed in your user manual.

These sounds often occur due to improperly loaded dishes hitting the spray nozzles, or loose items inside the dishwasher.

Tips for prevention:

  • Ensure the dishwasher is loaded correctly.

  • Secure dishes on racks to prevent movement and noise.

  • For models with a removable filter system, ensure it is securely in place. Refer to your user manual for instructions.

Note: If the noise persists during an empty cycle, consider requesting service at our Service Centre.

If the squeaking is from the hinge, lubricate it with a food-safe lubricant (not WD-40). If the issue persists, request service at our Service Centre.
