The water pump is only held off the flor by a wire tie. It can drop down just enough to begin touching your floor and it makes a bunch of noise. Either put a small piece of rubber or foam, ( old dish sponge) between the pum and floor or tie the pump back up.

Sounds like big end bearing gone and oil would probably be coming from gear box and engine seam and falling on exhaust its sounds like a pretty stuffed motor but everything is fixable depending on how much coin it coast and if its worth it cya Neil
loud motor noises during the wash cycle usually come from a water pump. Either the water pump will stop working soon, or it will keep working for a while longer, and the unit will stop cleaning. Sometimes the pump will stop making the noise for a while before it stops.
Generally, in my experience, the loud screeching is caused by one of the fan motors or fan blades. There is a fan inside the cabinet (possiblle two, one on the freezer and one on the refrigerator side). Also, there is a fan underneath the unit near the compressor (probably in the back).
If the screeching is coming from underneath then pull the unit out from the wall and remove the cardboard cover at the bottom back. Now turn the unit on and check for where the screeching is coming from.
If it is the fan blade (hitting something) or the motor, you can remove these and replace them easily. UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR BEFORE TOUCHING ANYTHING UNDERNEATH THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR.)
Two primary causes for this noise:
-Obstruction down in the sump area by some sort of debris.
Remove the lower spray arm and the 'equipment' / filter underneath the arm. Rinse out everything and then, with a flashlight, search everywhere for debris that must be removed. Re-assemble your DW. Test out.
-If the noise problem continues, based on your description, the wash pump motor/bearing is probably failing and will need to be replaced.
Please report back what you find, OK?
The sound you are hearing is most likely rust forming on the inside of the motor. It tends to happen when a pump seal starts to fail. Water travels up the spining shaft from behind the impeller into the motor. The high pitch is a direct result.
Solution. Replace the pump seal, and find a motor repair shop/ Pool pump repair shop to take a look at the motor. Have them check the brushes and bearings. Once clean of rust the motor should be quiet once again.
could be the coupler and the only way to truely check it is to take the pump, then the motor off. But it seems strange to me that you say it works fine. Is it spinning? usually when the coupler breaks it sounds horrible and usually will not spin but it will drain.I would check the coupler again.
If this is a high pitched sound, then this sounds like you have bearings that are starting to go out. There is not much that you can do to prevent eventual failure.
The only other option that I see is that there is something causing friction inside the pump between the impeller and diffuser.
Can you tell where the sound is coming from, underneath or inside? If it is coming from underneath make sure the coils are clean and the fan below is blowing. Usually the compressor will labor under these conditions. Let me know if these all check out ok and I will go over some other things..
something in the impeller housing. not usually serviceable. not sure if that unit has two pumps. you could look underneath the tub and try to determine that, and where the noise is coming from. i am confident the issue relates to a pump unit. good luck mark
