Question about LG Dishwashers
LG stainless steel steam dishwasher started making a loud whirring sound while washing dishes. It sounds like a motor spinning. I can't tell where it is coming from, maybe the chopping blade or perhaps the motor. I can hear it spin-up shortly after the cycle starts, and then it stops while it is draining. The sound is only audible while it is washing. We've only had this DW for about 2 years, probably past the warranty, but still quite young as far as appliances go.
This is very bizarre. Very likely the debris you found could have caused some damage to the dishwasher parts. If you have taken photos of the experience may be a good idea to send to the manufacturer and ask them to replace the affected parts without cost to you. This is the least they should do.

Well done by resolving this problem. The other way to avoid the siphoning problem through the drain hose is adding an air gap valve/connector (available at any hardware store). You can use it even if you don't have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. That will assure that you have the proper height of the drain hose.
Hope this helps!

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

-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?
