Question about KitchenAid KUDC02IRB Dishwasher
Makes rumbling sound during drain cycle ? It made similar rumbling sound during wash cycle but that was eliminated by replaced upper bearing (between retaining nut and lower spray arm).
Please let me know what to look for, thanks.
I have had a similar problem. I found that I had to remove the spray arms and dislodge food waste that had gotten stuck in the nozzles. Whenever cleaning has been insufficient, this has always made things better. A shame that Kitcheaid didn't do a better job on their screens/grinder.

SOURCE: Upper spray arm is not turning
It sounds to me like a restriction in the pump. I put together some information here on cleaning it out. If you try these please give me some feedback as to if they help or not.

Just had the same problem, and fixed it. Spray arms turn with proper water pressure in the pipes. 3 reasons can lower the water pressure. 1-pump motor losing power (wasn't my case) 2- cracked pipe (wasn't my case either, pipes, although plastics, seem to be very solid) and 3- debris in the pipes/filters. (It was my case) At first, it looks difficult to reach de filters, but it isn't.
1- Remove both baskets, the top one by removing the front plastic cap on the rails.
2- Remove the "+" bottom spray arm, by unscrewing counterclockwise (if I remember well...) the plastic screw dead center of it (use your fingers.)
3- Remove the three screws you see, but don't try to remove the filter part right away because there is a 4th screw under the leading water pipe, the one leading water to the top spray arms.
4-To remove the 4th screw, you must remove the plastic pipe that connect with the top spray arms. Easy. It's beeing held there by two clips, one on the back wall and one on the top wall. Just spread them with your fingers (or screwdriver) and turn the pipe toward the right side, to free the bottom part of the pipe from the middle/bottom spray arm holder, you'll have to bent it a little so it passes over the heating element.
5- Remove the last screw. Now there's nothing holding the bottom part anymore. just remove by moving it back and forth left and right (to loose it up), be carefull not to lose the clear plastic washers on the main shaft when removing. Now if your dishwasher is like mine (should be) you should see a lot of debris that couldn't reach the chopping device. In fact, the water couldn't flow properly because of all the debris stocked there by the bottom drain filter. Patio screws (?) small chicken bones, etc...
6- If you can find something to pump the water resting at bottom there, (I used a Prestone coolant tester!) you'd have a better view, and could remove the single screw holding the chopping device cap in place. That's the last step. Notice that the chopping device cap, even after the screw is removed, still look like firmly attached, like "glued", but there's absolutely nothing else holding the cap. Just shake it with your hand and it will eventually come off. Now you remove all the dirt/debris you see there, and then follow thw step back the rebuild the washing machine. On my part, it brought it back like if it was brand new..., but, now I'm being a little more carefull about the stuff I'm putting in there...
I hope it can help, English is not my first language.
