Hi Andy and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. That loud noise your hearing is the motor bearings. If you were to remove the lower kick panel you will prbably find signs of a slow leak of water has been trickling through the motor and you will see a water spot under the motor pump assembly.
You were correct in your assumption that it was bearings. What happens is the motor shaft ceramic seal starts leaking long before the home owner even notices it. Then the water gets into the motor and corrosion starts to build up. As the motor turns the bearing starts to spal as a result of the corrosion and you hear the loud noises.
The only fix for this sadly to say is a complete motor impeller assembly replacement. If your model number is the one associated with this post / question: KUDI01FLSS then there is one more digit after the last "S" that being one of the following numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.

The motor and impeller for your dishwasher Item 10 or 18 can be found here and is listed at $138.44:

The seal that has failed is item 23 of the same link. Changing the seal at this point will not stop the noise.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Kelly

Very Loud Noise when dishwasher starts


It is likely the sound is coming from the rinse aid dispenser solenoid. (I am assuming you do not have a water softener unit on your dishwasher). Try to run the drawer on a Rinse cycle and see if the noise is still coming.

Dishwasher is making a loud noise


Sounds like there is something in the filter trap that is right before the mini disposal that is a fan blade, on top of the motor.

It runs EXTREMELY loud


Hello, W/D here.
The problem is most likely in the motor/pump assembly, and they're sold as a unit. Prices range from about $130 to $220 or so. You can look up your model on this site for comparison shopping, if you decide to look somewhere else.
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/Dishwasher-Parts/Dishwasher-Pump-Motor-Assembly/index.aspx
If you are handy with tools, this is a job that is intricate, but doable. I have made a similar replacement on a KitchenAid dishwasher, where the noise started out low and increased over a period of several months to sound, as you said, EXTREMELY LOUD. Six months later, the noise started again, and increased again. I changed out the machine after that.
It might be worthwhile to get a local tech to give it a listen, and a free estimate, and decide whether to repair or replace it.
Best regards, --W/D--

Hi, I am having the exact same problem with my washer and my dishwasher. I have a lot of mineral deposits in the dishwasher, too. I am guessing it is a hard water problem, but am interested to hear whether that is a factor in your problem?

Hi,

It could be the motor bearings, they can go out if the pump seal starts to leak and moisture gets to the motor bearings. If that is the case you are looking at about $180.00 for the sump and motor (parts only).

It could also be something caught in the sump near the chopper that is creating the noise. Here is a link to some clean out instructions if you are up for trying them.

Kitchenaid Whisper Quiet + dishwasher making loud humming noise


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.

Kitchenaid dishwasher making funny noises while running


HI. this sounds like a busted impeller in the pump housing. there are two impellers. one for the wash and one for the drain. the drive shaft will strip the impeller center nut, causing this noise. I would inspect the pump housing for lose impeller action. replace the faulty impeller if found to be damaged.

Loud Knocking/Ticking Sound During Cycle


have you lowered the top basket into the lower position? if so the spray arm will knock the cutlery /plates. it sounds as though it is a spray arm problem. remove them and put it in wash to see if the noise goes. if not there may be an obstruction in the wash pump, this is a stripdown job then.
