Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
If the lines are clear then the solenoid is not letting water in. It sounds like the pump is dry ( that noise). The water lines are removable so you could check that first. The solenoid is replaceable ( on the underneath side) on regular dishwashers. Yours might have a sheet of metal over the bottom because it rolls around. I'm sure you could replace that part, but it would be difficult if you have not replaced parts on appliances before. Not much in tools although some require star drive or similar. Hose clamps and probably one electrical quick connect. If you do try it, take the model number And the serial number to a good appliance parts store and ask. Also ask for an expanded view of the area that should give you the way to replace that part.
One more thing parts are not returnable so you must be sure this is what you want to do.
Hiring a repair person starts at 65-75 dollars just to come out, plus (triple cost on parts) plus labor time to do it. That part could be as little as 20 bucks.

Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.
Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.
Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.
Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.
Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.
Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.
Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Hi If noise starts within one minute of start of program then you most likely have debris in drain pump. Under filter you will find non return valve remove valve this will expose drain pump impeller. with non return valve removed run program for 30 seconds refit valve and test. More in depth instructions available in user handbook.
