We finished a job today where a Miele Dishwasher was leaking and giving a “Waterproof” error. We found a pin hole in the tub. This is extremely unusual, as the tub is stainless steel. I have never seen this on a stainless steel tub. We were able make repairs and marked this in the record books. Electro Mechanical Service Professionals PLLC 520 661 0030
Actually this “jet plane* noise can happen on top load machines too. The problem usually is the tub bearing. We recently repaired one for a customer. Here are some photos of the project.
This is the old outer tub with bad bearing and seal. The seal fails, then water gets in the bearing and damages it.
This is the old basket shaft. Notice the groove in the metal. This is where the damaged bearing cut into the shaft.
The back side, the way it is supposed to look.
Almost done. Ready for test.
