I had a grinding noise during the wash cycle. I decided to check the food chopper, all okay there. So I decided to replace the washer pump & motor. When I compaired both the new part and the old part I noticed the tip of the impeller was broken on the new part. I removed the impeller from the old motor and put it on the new one. After I got it back together I tried it and had the same noise. I removed the food chopper and the noise was gone. I guess I'll replace the food chopper now, even though it looks okay.
