Re: load crunching noise
The motor has a 2 to 5 year warranty so if that's what the repair guy says I would go ahead and have it repaired. The noise can come from the pump, impellers or the motor. But if he's sure that's where it's coming from have it fixed by the repair service under warranty.

dishwashers come with the promise of being the "quietest dishwasher in
its class," according to Frigidaire. However, a quiet dishwasher doesn't
necessarily mean that the dishwasher is silent, as some noises are
normal. It can take some troubleshooting at times to determine if a
noise coming from the dishwasher is typical or if it indicates a larger

Pay attention to the drain
motor, which operates at the beginning of each cycle. This noise should
be fairly quiet and should not sound like a loud, grinding or banging

heard. The dishwasher can typically grind up these items within one or

Remove the bottom rack and spray

from the dishwasher that does not resolve itself. Look inside for the
impeller, which is round and spins. Remove any debris that may be
clogging up the impeller or pump.
A sound during certain cycles indicates a broken part. By the information provided sounds like a pump may be the problem. You may need to contact a service tech about this issue. If the appliance still under warranty, the service should be provided for free.
Every time when you hear noises (other than the normal ones) in the appliance, it indicates there is something wrong and it will worsen over time, so as soon you hear something is not ok, get assistance.
Though Noise depends on the model and make of the machine, still you can use the below methods to minimize the noise :-
the dishwasher is level. An unleveled machine can cause unwanted
vibration noise in addition to dish rattling. Most appliances have
leveling feet that adjust to ensure that the appliance is level. Ensure
the machine is level. If you can't access the feet, call a professional.
insulation around the dishwasher. A sound-absorbing foam can diminish
dishwasher noise level. Unless you are familiar with how to remove or
install dishwashers, have a professional perform this task.
dishes securely. One sure fire way to cut down on dishwasher noise is
to load the dishes properly. Cups, saucers and other items that aren't
properly placed in the dishwasher can toss about by the jet streams of
water. Put small items in a dishwasher approved, screened container to
prevent them from getting caught in the dishwasher's cleaning
a quiet dishwasher. Some manufacturers make dishwashers with built-in
noise reduction features. Research and read reviews for each to
determine which one works best in your situation. Magazines like
"Consumer Reports" provide unbiased reviews that can be helpful.
Very likely pump motor shaft seal leaks water into bearing casing buildup of rust and consequently noise. I just replaced $112 worth of pump assy and it's back to normal. I would also buy repair manual for $10 on-line to be sure how to disassemble the sump to get to the pump.
I had the same problem where rubber gasket that seals the motor bearings leaked water into the bearing and rusted out the bearing.
I scrapped the motor into every little pieces and extracted the bearing and just replace it. Now it is quiet as a mouse.
You need a bearing puller to get the bearing out for about $20 and the bearing is $6.
During the repair i slightly bent the shaft and i didn't straightened it properly so it wobbles a bit. But it works and if really quiet.
How deep do you want to get into this?It sounds like the wash pump motor bearings that are worn.You can pull the unit out flip it over and wd40 the bearings in the motor or you can replace the bearings.Try to lube them first.
