Question about GE Dishwashers
My dishwasher (very basic GE model) did this once. The buzzing only happened when it was washing the dishes, not during drain or fill parts of the cycle.
In my case, the issue turned out to be a bit of plastic (part of a drinking straw) that was stuck in the pump assembly. Whenever the pump was on, this bit of plastic was getting dragged over a metal filter plate, and sounded a lot like a kid with a card clipped in the spokes of a bike.
Good news was that I didn't need to buy any parts, simply disassemble the pump housing and pull out the plastic.
Bad news is that it took me a few hours to get the dishwasher out, apart, back together and re-installed.
Good luck with yours!
