Problem seemed to be the bottom wash arm. Had somehow gotten too close too heat element, bottom of wash arm was melted slightly causing it to rub. I guess when it got heated up toward end of cycle it began rubbing on heating element. Thought it was somthing in chopper at first, but after inspecting twice, could not find the reason for the noise. Replaced drain pump also, same way as others have instructed. Wash arm was even easier. One screw to remove w/ pliers, pop off arm and put new one on. Problem fixed !
