Sounds like a bad motor, you can get a complete replacement of the motor and sump assembly for about $150-175. one piece includes new motor and chopper assemblies, less then a hour to change.

Kenmore coldspot 106 icemaker working fine but in the last week has started to make a loud buzz/humming sound when filling... is it the Solenoid, water fill valve or the ice maker motor ?

If you think it's only during the fill (20-30 seconds at the end of the cycle), it's probably the fill solenoid. If it were me, I'd let it go a couple of weeks and see if it quiets down on its own. There's nothing harmful about a solenoid humming, and you may find that better is the enemy of good when you wade into trying to fix it.
If you can't live with the noise, I'd suggest replacing the entire valve body and solenoid as a unit - you never know which part may be the source of the problem. It's only 2 water connections and 2 wires. You can buy the part online for $20 or less.

After my dishwasher fills with water, and starts to run, the motor is making alot of noise. Its loud and I'm afarid to run it. Could the motor be bad?

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
If you hear a loud hum/buzz 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/electronic control that is bad and needs replacement. However, after reading your question I believe it is the motor that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Doesnt clean dishes, seems to be no water coming into machine

There should be about 2 inches of water in the bottom of the DW.  If it is filling but not washing the pump may be bad.  That might explain the loud noise (motor bearing).  I assume that the detergent cover is opening but no water is being sprayed to dissolve it.

Sears Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Loud humming noise

That sound is usually your icemaker calling for water. you can turn off your icemaker by lifting the little arm on the icemaker. As the icemaker calls for water the valve will be activated and will hum. This sound is usually not very loud. If your valve is making that much noise you may consider replacing the valve. The part number for you water inlet valve is #2315533 The retail price is $60.18 . I do have these on hand and available to ship out today if you need one. Please just let me know. You may also consider replacing your filter if your refrigerator has one. Thanks and I hope this will fixYa

My kitchenaid dishwasher is making a loud humming noise and has stopped cleaning the dishes, why?

if the water is not spraying you may have a seized up motor. if the water is spraying then you have something down in your motor somewhere..
