Just wanted to follow up on this. I did find it was the motor capacitor that was bad. The new motor(wash) came with the capacitor and that fixed the problem. Thanks for the help.

What did u ever find with this dishwasher? I have the same issue with one. I get error code 3. The dishwasher fills, starts to pump and then humms with no water moving anymore and then quickly goes to error 3. To me it sounds like the wash motor runs out of water right away but I have made sure there was plenty of water and it acts the same. I have checked all the filters and hoses and wash motor for obstruction. Anyone else have one of these yet?

I have replaced broken shocks in a few of these. The new ones are always nice and quiet. Unfortunately is sounds like the seal between the two outer tubs is leaking. I have also tried tightening the bolts but it has never worked for me. Nor do I think silicone would do the trick. The only way to fix it I beleive is to replace that seal which requires removing the whole tub assembly, removing all the bolts, seperating the 2 shells and replacing the seal. The seal isn't expensive but the job requires a few hours of labor for a seasoned technician.

I have always just removed those tabs when replacing the dogs. Any opinions on that? Also replacing the thrust washer is a good idea.

I tried that. Used to gallons of bleach and smell was gone for 3 weeks but it returned. Hope it works for you.  It really is a pain to have that smell linger in the house after anyone takes a shower. Im my case I did find it was only with the hot water so the water heater was the culprit. Good luck!
