If the water valve is good and no obstrution in the fill lines
Then replace the head

Ok, just in case some of you want to know a resolution to this problem.

1. water pressure was low static was 44 psi and dropped to less than 24 psi with fill valve open. customer had a pressure reducing device on and I ended up adjusting it higher. (if you added 12 oz of water manuall noise went away)

2. water level fine now, but noise continued even louder , still a dry sump and water level good.

3. d/w was tilted a little forward (top of d/w out) I remounted and leveled (not much 1/4 inch)

4 Wa La......noise gone, no more dry sump noise

I never would have expected a result as leveling that little could have made a big difference.

replaced fill valve no good
disassembled and cleaned pump no good
check all wash arms no good
increased water pressure (an option most do not have avail) no good
tilt d/w 1/4 backward and problem gone

will remember this one after 4 trips

Your first mistake is to infer manufacturing cost determines selling price. They are not linked like you think and seldom are. Market determines selling price and profitability determines selection and availability. Simple econ 101
