On our KitchenAid dishwasher we had the same problem--a REALLY loud squeak as it opened. The sound comes from the nylon rope slipping along the plastic pulleys. We've had the DW for about 3 years and the noise has gotten worse over time. I was determined to win the war against the noise and am happy to say I fixed it today.
The trick is to use a dry lubricant on the cord and on the pulleys. I used Dry Graphite by Gunk. It comes in an aerosol spray can and once the stuff dried the squeak was gone. I'll let you know if it comes back...

Water will not come out top agitator on my kitcheaid dishwasher
You need to take out the bottom rack of the dishwasher and disassemble the lower spin arm and filters underneath it. You need to get right down to the chopper blade and disassemble and clean out the chopper blade assembly. Make sure there is nothing buried in the little holes. Once done and you are sure it is clean. Reassemble it all. It should work fine. Having said that.......It will happen again in a few washes until you replace the whole chopper blade assembly.
