Question about GE Dishwashers
The part you are referring to is the pump out solenoid. ( part # WD21X10071) When the dishwasher is suppose to pump out, power is applied to the solenoid and it swings a flap inside the pump assembly to divert the pumped water out the drain instead of up into the dishwasher. If there are no signs of water leakage at the solenoid arm, I'd just ignore the noise. Note: Newer models use a separate drain pump and no longer use the pump out solenoid.
