Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
No longer "ultra quiet" huh?
A sound during certain cycles indicates a broken part. By the information provided sounds like a pump may be the problem. You may need to contact a service tech about this issue. If the appliance still under warranty, the service should be provided for free.
Every time when you hear noises (other than the normal ones) in the appliance, it indicates there is something wrong and it will worsen over time, so as soon you hear something is not ok, get assistance.

I have a very similar dishwasher, with a very similar problem. I fixed it by removing debris from the water evacuator pump located towards the front of the bottom of the machine (the last motor before the drain hose. In my case, grape stems had clogged it up. Once emptied, it purrs once again. NOTE: don't disassemble the motor, just flush it out, there is an o-ring gasket that is a bear to re-install.

I think I solved the door leaking problem by cleaning out the plastic filter screen on the inside (left) door panel. Didn't even know it was there, never knew it was suppose to be cleaned! It was so clogged and gross. I also discovered that my washer had shifted and was off balance. It has wood shims under the steel casing and one block was loose. No doubt from slamming and banging the door open and closed. Had to take the front skirt and kickplate off to see. I had my son use a lever and hoisted it up a little while I replaced the block shim now making the washer level again. Ran a light wash before fixing problems and it leaked. We ran a light wash after the fix's and so far so good. Haven't ran a regular longer wash yet. My water level was fine, no gasket problems, no washer wand cracks, etc... My husband was thrilled! When he came home, I informed him I have good news and not so good news. The not so good news was dinner was going to be late, the good news was I fixed the leaking (for months!)dishwasher and saved alot of money on repairs!
**Cleaned filter screen, made dishwasher level again.
