Well, My Whirlpool Quiet Partner I is at it again. Now it's a loud whine. I've seen some posts stating to check the grinder assembly, but not sure on the instructions on how to do it. I pulled the screen/upper rack arm, and tried what I thought was the cover for the grinder, there is a flap towards the front that moves, but not much else. If not the grinder, new pump? There is a bit of rust on the bottom of the pump, but not sure if that has anything to do with anything. Thanks in advance.

Perhaps a "not-so-quiet partner" ?

Well, took it all apart, the screens were full of something that I cleaned out (both food chopper assembly and Filter (Reminded me of the lint in my sink for the clothes washer), but the noise remains.
There was a bit of corrosion on the bottom part of the motor. I'm guessing the bearing (But will yield to the Grand Master as always)

Maybe I can sue Whirlpool for false advertising (Not being quiet and all). My mom bought a Bausch and I can't hear it at all.

.... give the Bosch a bit of time. lol. If you look under your dishwasher - directly under the motor where it joins to the pump and see a little pile of dried soap or skum on the floor: yes you need a new pump assembly. 15 mins to change out. Have fun! Oh, and don't cut yourself on the edge of the stainless when you pull the pump out. Whirlpool sharpens it to a razor edge just for service guys.
