Question about Hotpoint Dishwashers
DC21 makes loud explosion (bang) during use sometimes, but continues to work, and shows no sign of damage. Suggest could be capacitor releasing energy, or something. I am not an electrician but noise is frightening, and could be fire hazard.

This is a known issue for GE dishwashers and may be similar for other
models too. The fix is simple. The noise is due to
vibration of the arm for the middle sprayer. Just secure it with
a tie wrap or wire and the noise should be gone.
Refer to the following link for my earlier response to a similar issue which fixed the problem.

How deep do you want to get into this?It sounds like the wash pump motor bearings that are worn.You can pull the unit out flip it over and wd40 the bearings in the motor or you can replace the bearings.Try to lube them first.

SOURCE: Loud banging during kneading
Usually with products like this, one gear will be a plastic instead of metal which under too much stress will shear. Basically to narrow down the problem, you will need to open up the machine and find the part that is worn down considerably and then we can get you to the manufacturer or another retailer that can get you the replacement part

I had the same problem with by Kemore Ultrawash after two years. The motor bearing went bad because the seal went out and dish water got to the bearing. If you are handy, this motor comes out after taking the dishwasher out. I was surprised how easily the motor came apart from the dishwasher, a good design. The motor has three screws that holds it together, I took them out and took the motor apart.
I took the old beaing off the shaft with a grinder, careful not to groove the motor shaft. I did, but just put some high temp silicone caulk in the groove before I put the new bearing on the shaft. I bought a new bearing on the internet, it is a 22mm x 8mm x 7mm. I bought one that went in a small engine, a quality one. I placed it on the shaft, put the motor back together and put the dishwasher back together. It has run quiet and great for many weeks now. I expect the dishwasher may last many years now, because the bearing I took out was a cheap aftermarket one, and the new one is vastly superior in quality.
Good luck and fire away with any questions. I love this dishwasher and am glad I could fix it for 19$ and some of my time.
