Disconnected the water line. Pulled the dishwasher out from underneath the counter. Turned the dishwasher on its side. Removed the two screws that were holding the motor in place with a special screwdriver set I had to buy. Removed the motor. Found that the front O-ring on the motor was mangled. Replaced the O-ring. No more screeching. The dishwasher now cleans the dishes better than the day I first bought it. I have to wonder if that O-ring was ever installed properly from the factory.
