smv50coogb dishwasher has a white clip by bottom filter that fell out. have tried to refit by now make a whirring noise and wash cycle ends quickly
Hi sorry to hear that, did this happen when you changed the filter?
Also how old is your dishwasher?
And could you describe the clip in in detail so I can help you further.
Thank you

No the filter became loose and on further inspection we noticed the white clip in the bottom where the water drains away.

The dishwasher is just over 2 years old

Thanks Alan, this may part of the filter or the filter housing.
You need to remove the filter and see if you can tell where the part broke off.
Usually its on the filter but this time it may have come off the housing. Both are easy to change.
The reason you hear the whirring sound is because the filter isn't seated fully due to the part missing. And water is leaking from there as well as air getting in there. i will help you if you need in replacing the housing if you need me.
