Question about Dishwashers
It had begun to get noisier, a metallic gnashing that sounded like an unhappy motor with bad bearings. Then there was a 'Pop! like a belt breaking and it stopped altogether. In the recent past I've had to replace the control panel, and two thermal fuses.

about the only thing to try would be to remove the inner door panel to get to the control bd then you will see a mylar ribbon looks like a fat piece of scotch tape pull up on the plastic connector that holds it in and pull the ribbon out then get a clean pencil eraser and gently clean the ribbon and put it back in dont forget to push the locking tab back down then try it again and let me know

no thats correct installeation of machine, its meant to be a "hidden" control. simply open the door, choose your options, press start and close door.

I bought a control board for $127.00 figuring that was the problem but it wasn't. I called an appliance guy who came out and said its the touchpad that needs to be replaced. I ordered the touchpad ($325) since I already have to much invested in this dishwasher. I paid $1200 for it 8 years ago and its really a great dishwasher. My appliance confirmed that if it was the fuse-ling that you would not have any lights on.

The problem is the control panel. You may have to shut the power off for a few seconds to reset the control board, then check to see if it works. If not, the control board has a break in the wiring or the keypad is no good.

Hi Andy and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. That loud noise your hearing is the motor bearings. If you were to remove the lower kick panel you will prbably find signs of a slow leak of water has been trickling through the motor and you will see a water spot under the motor pump assembly.
You were correct in your assumption that it was bearings. What happens is the motor shaft ceramic seal starts leaking long before the home owner even notices it. Then the water gets into the motor and corrosion starts to build up. As the motor turns the bearing starts to spal as a result of the corrosion and you hear the loud noises.
The only fix for this sadly to say is a complete motor impeller assembly replacement. If your model number is the one associated with this post / question: KUDI01FLSS then there is one more digit after the last "S" that being one of the following numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.
The motor and impeller for your dishwasher Item 10 or 18 can be found here and is listed at $138.44:
The seal that has failed is item 23 of the same link. Changing the seal at this point will not stop the noise.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Welcome to FixYa
dishwasher fills then it means that the control and the water inlet valve are
fine, hum sound itself indicates that the motor is bad and needs replacement.
If you hear a hum sound from the bottom of the unit then it is the motor that
is bad and if the hum comes from the control then it is the timer that is bad
and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
