Hi, my dishwasher has recently started making a loud whirly sound when washing. It sounds like air being pushed through something really fast like its going to take off...I can't figure out what it is..can you help?
I have the same dishwasher, It is probably something like a small piece of class or plastic stuck in the food grinder. If u take the bottom wash are off then the grinder cap u will see the grinder. take it out and clean it, should solve your problem

Two possible issues.
Starter relay (what puts power to your starter when you turn the key) or
Your starter is bad.
I would start with the starter relay because it is cheap and easy to replace.
The whirring sound could be your fuel pump or the starter turning but not connecting to the engine to turn it over. Depends on how loud the whirring is...
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.
Hi I am Vortash by the sound of what you are descibing your pump bearings seem to be shot , although it is making this sound is it still washing properly if so it confirms it is the bearing and not the impeller catching and making the noise the pump gets to quite a high pressure to wash the dishes .. sort of an enclosed hot jet wash the force of which drives the spray arms .. so I am afraid it looks like you will soon need a replacement pump.. sorry to bare bad news .. Regards Vortash
your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.
there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)
first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.
the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..
When it is off, reach down around the base of the spray assy and run your fingers around the entire circular base where junk can get caught. I've found broken glass and plastic utensils. Why do some of us wash disposable utensils? Huh? You may find something like a piece of plastic, glass, or the like that is making the noise. Be careful not to cut yourself.
If this buzzying sound is not coming from the tub, and is actually below the tub and in front right side, it is most likely the electrical relay switch ( which can make that sound when it is straining or failing).
How deep do you want to get into this?It sounds like the wash pump motor bearings that are worn.You can pull the unit out flip it over and wd40 the bearings in the motor or you can replace the bearings.Try to lube them first.
have you lowered the top basket into the lower position? if so the spray arm will knock the cutlery /plates. it sounds as though it is a spray arm problem. remove them and put it in wash to see if the noise goes. if not there may be an obstruction in the wash pump, this is a stripdown job then.
