Brand:  KitchenAid
Model: KUDM01TJBS0

My girlfriend's five year old dishwasher began making a funny noise.  It's normally extremely quiet - it's hard to tell it's running but now, right after the tub fills up it begins making a slight humming noise.  Almost sounds like a small motorcycle inside it - not a very loud noise but just enough to tell something's not quite right.

I removed the lower sprayer arm, and checked to make sure it wasn't cracked.  All the jets appear to be free of clogs (on both upper and lower arms).  I replaced the sprayer arm put an obstruction in the bottom of the tub to block the lower spray arm from turning and it still makes the noise.

Any idea what I should do next?  I'd like to try to fix it for her but if it's too complicated I'll call a repairman.  Thanks so much for any help.

Once you get down into the mascerator and clean out all you can then, if it still makes the noises, you'll need to replace the motor pump assembly.
