Question about GE Dishwashers
Makes loud grinding/growling noises throughout the cycle. Quiet for 20 seconds, but then the grrrring starts. Works, but is very noisy. This is approximately a 3 year old GE Quiet Power 1 dishwasher which was included with the home we just bought.
HI. here are the most common issues that will cause a noise during the wash.
* Check the spray arm for damage and obstructions
* Check the inlet filter screens
* Test the water inlet valve(see below for test procedure)
* Check the motor and mounts- The motor may e loose or one of the mounts may have separated form the housing. this will cause mis-alignment.
* Check the fan motor and blade
* Check the drain for obstructions
If all checks out above, the culprit will be a cracked pump impeller. this will occur if the drive stud becomes unstable, allowing the impeller to partially separate form the motor spin drive stud. this will cause the impeller to rub or grind during the wash cycle. If this is the case, there are impeller repair kits available for purchase that will correct this issue.

An aging water-inlet valve can sometimes fail slowly, rather than all at once. It can shudder on and off rapidly, causing the incoming water lines to shake, rumble, and rattle--sometimes violently. If yours is doing this, replace the inlet valve.
Motor If it's the motor that's noisy, either of these may be the "culprit:"
Pump Small fruit pits, toothpicks, and fragments of glass sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this happens, open the pump and remove the debris. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher.
To get to the pump, you usually need to remove the lower rack, the spray arms, and the spray arm support from the inside of your dishwasher. A dishwasher pump isn't obvious. Look for an impeller--a round, plastic fan blade-type device that spins around and pushes the water toward the drain. When you can see the drain impeller, you should be able to see the clogging debris.
if this helps please vote me a fix ya

might have also something to do with limescale build-up in the washer arm itself.
Makes ballance off and can creat the noise. If it is clean you might check the filter and pump for any dirt build-up

look for odjects in the pump cutter ie glass plastic or the cutter is bent or a rushing sound could be motor bearings

Sounds like a motor overload switch. You may have a bind on your motor or a clogged water pump. Try removing the kick plate and take a look underneath. You'd be amazed at what can end up under a dishwasher.
