Screeching noise when running the dishwasher

Removed the dishwasher from under the counter, disconnected the copper water tubing, placed it upside down, removed the old pump and replaced with new. The only iffy situation is making sure the copper tubing doesn't kink when removing the dishwasher and putting it back into the cabinet. Very simple, my husband can fix anything. Your video was very helpful as well.

Removed screws around the door, unplugged the solenoid,lifted the tabs on the dispenser and removed the dispenser. Installed the new dispenser, plugged the solenoid back in and reistalled the door screws. ran the dishwasher and the same issue still happened. I removed the water fill valve, I cleaned the inlet screen and exercised the plunger. I hooked up the water supply to it and gave it a 120v supply power to it. I don't recommend to the average homeowner to do what I did, I am an experience tech. The water valve worked everytime I applied power to it, I reinstalled the water valve but I haven't ran the dishwasher yet. If the problem continues, then it must be the electronics. It will be cheaper to replace the diswasher due to it being 8 yers old.

purchased the correct seal, opened the door and pulled out the old one with one motion. marked the middle on the new one then installed with a little bit of pushing into the slot from one side to the other. making sure to tuck the ends into the recess at bottom of each end and clip off the excess and done! but make sure you replace the lock tab on the top when you replace the seal!!! it comes with it but you will have to slide the washer out a bit to push the old one out, There are no fasteners, Just push out and snap in and wala!! dry floor

The chopper blade got jammed and broke the teeth off both the chopper assembly and the impeller. I had previously replaced just the chopper blade, but the screen would be clogged after 1-2 wash cycles so I finally realized that the impeller needed to be replaced as well. Dishwasher needed to be uninstalled, flipped on its side and motor removed (1 simple bolt holding the shield). Using a screwdriver to stop the motor shaft, the impeller assembly unscrews easily. Replace the seals and screw on the new impeller, remount the motor and you are back in business! Good luck.
