Question about Maytag MDB9600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher
It might be a glitch in the dishwasher's computer memory. Try turning off the power at the breaker box for ten seconds or so. This should clear the memory. After turning the power back on, restart the dishwasher.

It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.

Hey, just had the same problem with my 9150. Moisture got into the electronic key pad. $300 to replace it. I was 5 months out of warranty.
I called 800-688-9900 and Maytag agreed to cover the part and we have to cover the labor. Not completely satisfied but a little bit helps.

SOURCE: Stopping the Cancel/Drain Cycle
Disconnect the Drain Hose from the plumbing under the sink and using a bucket hold the hose in the bucket and attempt to drain the dishwasher. If you have a disposal and recently replaced it, the knockout plug may be still inside where the drain hose attaches into the disposal. To determine if it is still there, using a screwdriver, stick the screwdriver into the drain hose hole on the side of the disposer and if you feel blockage then the knockout plug is still in the disposer and will need to come out. To remove the plug use a short screwdriver and a hammer and place the screwdriver into the drain and strike the top of the screwdriver once and the plug should pop out of the disposal. Be careful not to hit the disposal too hard or to damage any plumbing. Reattach the drain hose and you should be all set. When you remove the drain hose if the machine is flashing an error code, go to the circuit breaker box and turn off the breaker for the dishwasher, wait 5 mins and turn it back on. This should reset the board and the machine should operate properly.

SOURCE: Loud noise at end of Draining
If your dishwasher seems noisy, check these:
1. Water-inlet valve
3 Heater fan
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.
If it's the motor that's noisy, either of these may be the "culprit:"
As motor bearings wear out, they can become quite loud when the motor runs. They wear out quickly if they frequently get wet, because the water washes away the motor bearing grease. Bearings can get wet if the spin seal is defective. Then there will also be water leaking onto the floor beneath the dishwasher. Replace the seal if it leaks (read about the main tub seal in the "It leaks" section, later).
If, from beneath the dishwasher, you can see a round, plastic disc that's mounted to the top of the motor (a "slinger"), it may have broken free of the motor shaft. If so, it could be rattling around the shaft while the motor is running. If that's the problem, you need to replace the motor.
If the heater fan bearings are rusted or worn, they may squeal, or scrape loudly during the drying cycle. If this is the problem, replace the fan motor. Alternatively, the fan blade may be loose. If so, you need to replace it.
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.
