My dishwasher has been making a sound that I don't know if it's supposed to make, being that it's supposed to be a "quiet" dishwasher, when it is running. It sounds like a "rrrrrr---rrrrrr--rrrrrrrrr--rrrrrrr" constantly. Its sounds loud, but doesn't drown out my TV in the room when I am watching it. Is this a normal sound?
Pulled this answer from another post. It makes sense.
The sound is almost always caused by a worn docking cone “O” ring on the main conduit. When the docking cone “O” ring wears, the mid level spray arm conduit is no longer constrained and it can vibrate against the docking cone, making the “growling” or vibrating sound. The recommended repair for this problem is to replace the titanium or gray docking cone.

GE GLDT690TBB Fully Integrated Dishwasher with 7 Wash Cycles Including SaniWash and SpeedWash, Nylon Racks, Stainless Steel Interior, Countdown Display and QuietPower 56 Quiet PackaBlack- Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Your question is: you have a ge dishwasher you purchased two years ago. you have misplaced your owners manual. you can only tell you it is a ge quietpower 3. you don't even know the model since you've misplaced your owners manual. it started with the timer for speed cycle set itself between 50 and 60 minutes, and you knew that wasn't right. and then yesterday it did not drain all the water out. you know there is no food particles in it because you clean them before you put them in the washer and the drain line it is hooked up to is working proberly also. can i help?
First, the model and serial numbers are in the door jam. Open the door and look right and left.
The rest sounds like a bad control board, It will require a pro. If the d/w has a few years on it you may want to consider the price of repair verses replacement.

I have a GE Quietpower 3 dishwasher and let me tell you it is the worst dishwasher, hands down that I have ever owned. It is not quiet and it certainly does not have any power to clean anything. Or so i thought. After reading a few of the posts on this site it dawned on me to check the drainage. I took the whole drain assembly apart. Cleaned all of the gunk out of it. Then went for the drain hose. It was just about a clean as it was brand new. Then i reexamined the drain and found that it did not drain into the Garbage disposal like I am use too. Instead it had to make an immediate 30" climb into a PVC drain that sat just below the underside of the countertop. I rerouted the hose to dump into a bucket and ran the dishwasher. Guess what??? All clean and no residue. I am off to Lowes now to get the clamps and such to drain the dishwasher into the disposal. I still think this dishwasher is the worst I have ever owned and think GE should give that Six Sigma save a few pennies on one DW and the company can save hundred of thousands, at the expense of a customer spending hours on fix-it sites to find out the company cheapened the pump, a rest! However, for all of you that just want to fix your dishwasher, try draining it into the Disposal now before you blow your pump out.
This one is a known issue and an easy fix.
Use a tie wrap to securely tie the water tube for the middle spray to the upper basket. That's it. Believe it or not, it's that simple. You may want to secure it at the front and the back. To test this you can use the tie wraps used to closed the plastic grocery or bread bags. If this solves the problem you can buy a bag of nylon tie wraps from any hardware store.
I had a similar problem with another GE model with a similar problem. The dishwahser used to make a horrible grinding noise during the wash cycle. One I secured the middle sprayer arm the grinding noise went away.
