Question about Dishwashers
Definately sounds like a pump on its way out. Probably not the pump itself - but the starting capacitor.
However it may be cheaper for you in the long run to have a professional out to diagnose the problem instead of throwing money into it blindly.
You can always pay the service fee... then do the work yourself - however without testing the capacitor and probing the motor's leads - you are repairing blindly.

In some cases it is the pump that causes the problem but I would advise to have the front panel removed to inspect the unit while it is making the noise. Some of the noise may come from the shaft that has worn out and may need replacement. Once the panel is open you may also pinpoint easier where the noise is coming from. Normally for mechanical parts it could be worn out and needs replacement or may have been dislocated and would need tightening up the bolts or relocating parts back to its original position.

Tips for a great answer:
First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump
assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue
returns after its cleaned then try to reset the dishwasher control by pressing
the HEATED DRY button and hold it for 15 seconds, if its still not resolved
then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope
this helps...please post back for further assistance.
