Question about Dishwashers
Thank You for usingFixYa. To start with check the pump and try to clean it out, then check drainhose for any obstruction. Also check for a bad bearing on the spray arm. Ifstill the issue is not resolved then it’s the motor that makes the noise you hear.The motor has bearings in it which may become worn or get rusty. When thebearings get worn, they allow the shaft to wobble which can get quite loud. Ifthere is a spin seal leak, water may get inside the motor, washing the bearinggrease away. If the spin seal is leaking, you’ll notice water leaking fromunder the dishwasher. There is also a disc attached to the top of the motorcalled a slinger. It sometimes breaks off and spins around the motor's shaftwhile it turns, causing some noises. You will need to replace the motor if thebearings are bad. You also need to replace the motor if the slinger is brokenas well. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Okay, since it only happens in the wash mode your problem is with the motor itself. The motor is not necessarily bad but the water path for the motor may be clogged. Since you have already checked the arm I recommend that if you have a shop vac or wet dry vac that you again remove the spray arm and vacuum out the tube that the spray arm goes into.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
