Question about Dishwashers
LG Dishwasher making electronic crackling noise when starting up.
Ok, normally, when you hear abnormal noises and the draining has stopped, this will point to the pump/motor assembly. this assembly , basically, runs together in unison. the pump/motor are as one and if the motor is malfunctioning, the pump will not drain properly. this noise is coming from the pump housing. There are many parts that are located in this housing and one fragile part that can cause issues is the Impeller. this piece provides the pump action that moves the water during drainage. If the sleeve that connects to the Impeller becomes stripped, the motor drive bolt will simple spin freely, causing this noise and no drainage. The motors fine but, you will have to replace the pump assembly in order for this noise to stop and the normal draining cycle to return. just to be safe, check all the drainage hoses as well.
please rate and god bless:)

If your dishwasher seems noisy, check these:
Water-inlet valve 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.
thanks and accept the solution accordingly

Hi you probably have something in the sump drain assembly (this is a common problem with Nautilus DW's) there's a screen on the right side of
the spray arm with 2 screws remove them and take screen off use your
fingers to probe the cavity be careful it could be glass.
If it does not correct the problem
!.You may have an electric pump . and it could be pump without water . so i would say a bad pump....but since you say everything is draining well...then I doubt the later...HOWEVER...you did say it ran forever...which is absolutely typical of something in the sump...drain area...which will make the drain cycle run because it believes something to be in the drain.....there is also a check valve...that the drain hose attaches to...(it comes right off of the motor assembly) when you take the hose off there is a check valve that screws into the hose or the motor assembly...(it could have debris in the hose that is not being drained all the way out and it is finding it's way back to the check valve) ...shop-vac the drain line...or the valve is screwed into the motor assembly where the hose disconnects...and there may be something stuck in the valve...unscrew it and check that the valve is in good shape...and free of debris......reassemble...and run through cycle....if you need any of these parts...or any specific instructions on replacement of these parts...here is a great site...Quality for less and quick delivery.
I hope this helps...I believe it will....Good luck and good day....thank you for your rating my effort....The Fang.

-Switch to a brand name detergent powder - like Electrosol or Cascade and do not fill the dispenser cup full. You will notice the difference immediately.
-Remove the filter assembly one more time and inspect underneath with a flashlight. Look closely for debris and also inspect the impeller to look for damage and that it is spinning freely.
Reassemble and listen for the growling sound. It should not happen. If it continues, you may have a a failing wash motor / motor bearing.
Please report back what you find. OK?
