KitchenAid KUDKO3CTBLO My dishwasher is about 1

KitchenAid KUDKO3CTBLO My dishwasher is about 1 1/2 years old. It still washes fine, but the motor/pump makes a terrible sound when it is washing. What could it be? We have checked inside and found nothing wrong. It has become a family joke in our house because I bought this dishwasher because it is so quiet...well, it's definately no longer quiet.

Wowsers! I did the very same thing for the very same reason....Nothing like a Kitchen Aid, best ever...highest reputation...quietest you can get, stainless steel tub....all you'd ever want in a dishwasher...RIGHT?
WELL, mine did the same thing. Started making some noise..just a little at first (but it grew!). Being handy, I took it apart, certain that there was something in there to explain it...put it back together, and convinced myself thet it was a wee bit better sounding (but it grew!). So, being handy, I went on-line and purchased a complete motor/impeller assembly and installed it. It stayed quiet for a while, maybe six months (but it grew!) I even humbled myself to call a technician out (did I mention that I was handy?) and he listened appreciatively and then shrugged his shoulders and said something like "I dunno", but that he could put in a motor/impeller kit in it..... I finally was a piece of junk, and I wouldn't have it in my house any longer. Besides, I couldn't keep throwing money at it. Sorry, but thanks for letting me vent. Anyhoo, I bought a Samsung, and I like it OK. Don't get me wrong, after the Kitchen Aid let down, I don't really trust any of 'em. I put the K/A out by the road and that was the end of it, or so I thought...a knock on the door about six weeks later, and the guy says "I picked up this dishwasher over there, it supposed to make that much noise?"
I said all that just to say this...I feel your pain. Maybe your luck will be better than mine was. You can buy a motor/impeller assembly on line for ~$220.00 I think, but I'm not too sure that it's really worth it.
Thanx, --W/D--

White residue on dishes and inside of dishwasher. 1 and 1/2 years old

White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results.
You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle. Make sure that your soap dispenser drawer is opening and closing fine.
Hope this helps... Please post back if more information is required.

7-8 year old KitchenAid washes dishes on bottom, but not on top

Position the spray arms in a certain position. Activate the dishwasher for a few seconds and then examine the position of the spray arms. If the upper spray arm has not moved, then either there is no water coming to the spray arm or the spray arm is clogged.
