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.

Your drive belt snapped. If it is a 50cc, 4 stroke engine, chinese scooter, with a 10 inch rear wheel, then you most likely need a 669-18-30 belt. That is the most popular scooter belt on the planet and is available for about $10-$35, depending on the quality you want. Any scooter shop can change it for you. It only takes about 15 minutes, but expect to pay a chargeable labor rate of .5-1hr since there are unexpected problems occasionally, and there is cleanup time, paperwork time, etc. It should cost about $30-$75 in labor plus parts. Any more than that and you are getting ripped off. You may have other worn parts in your transmission such as roller weights and variator guides. These tend to wear out on chinese bikes around 3000km+. If they are worn, change them while the technician is working on it. It shouldn't cost you any more labor, just the parts, about $12-$20 for the rollers, and $8-$12 for the guides. Cheap belts last about 2000-3000km, good belts last 5000-9000km. Pay the extra few dollars for the better belt, you won't regret it. If your belt broke prior to 2000km, then you may have a defective part in your transmission, such as the rear pulley. That usually comes as a "clutch pack" and generally sells for $40-$90. If you have more than 2000km, it probably snapped just from normal wear and tear. If you can't find a local scooter shop, you can reach us at www.solanocycle.com. We can ship you any parts you need. This repair is not recommended for novices. Although it is easy for those who know how to do it, you can damage your crankshaft and ruin your motor if you do it wrong. Hope this helps.

It sounds like computer has put you bike into limp home mode or safety mode to protect the engine. What warning lights do you have if any come on? it sounds like a sensor has either malfunctioned or has done its job properly and picked up something wrong like, temp sensor, oxygen, oil pressure, mass air flow sensor etc. Either way when something is out of the norm form the sensor inputs to the bikes computer it will often limit the revs on the bike putting it into limp home mode to protect the engine.
I personally would be getting a mechanic to put it on a diagnostic machine. If the computer has caused the bike to go into limp mode, your mechanic will more than likely be able read a fault code from your computer to point you in the right direction as to the root cause of this fault.
