Welcome to Justanswer … my name is ***** ***** I will help you today!

I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble with your appliance; hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

The dishes are coming out clean?

Have you seen any flashing lights/error codes ?

the dish are coming out clean no i have not seen any flashing lights
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 7 months ago.

Well if its working fine and cleaning the dishes perfectly fine without flashing any errors then its fine.

Going quite is not considered as faulty code.

You can unplug it and pull it out then clean the drain pump filter from inside.

Check the drain hose where it connects to house drain for any clogs.

If that is fine tip it backwards by around 45 degrees.

Then plug it back and see how it goes.

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask!
