Just installed LG dishwasher--there's a buzzing sound.
I installed a new LG dishwasher tonight and it's making a buzzing sound. It's not constant, but it's coming from the bottom area. I've never installed a dishwasher before but I have installed washing machines and faucets. I'm know the basics.

I did a first load of dishes in it to test it out, but it wasn't full and there wasn't anything touching or rubbing or sticking out the bottom of any racks.

I used a new steel braided water hose but I reused the power cord. I just hooked it up the same as it was on the original dishwasher--black-black, white-white, green-green. It turned on like normal and started running when I turned it on.

The buzzing sounds almost like an electrical sound but like I said, it's not constant. I used wire nuts and put electrical tape over that to make sure. Any help would be appreciated.

if it happen when it calls for water, it could be the solenoid valve.
