Question about KitchenAid Dishwashers
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.
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--
