Water had been dripping for quite some time causing the floor boards to warp and buckle causing the door to no longer align. Water drip could be seen coming from the motor area. Ordered the O rings and replaced. Get Motor & Pump schematic Pub to visualize how parts fit together. I recommend getting motor (~$90)which comes with O rings (~$50 for O rings alone) because, as it turns out, the leak was in motor. I will post repair process in separate posting.
After moving the dishwasher out from the cabinetry, I removed the screws holding the pump in place. Pulling the pump from the formed plastic opening, I found a toothpick lodged in the pump housing. At the same time I noticed that the front o-ring was deformed due to being the incorrect size (too large). It was installed at the factory this way.I went online to search for new parts. PartSelect was the second or third listing on the search page. I submitted the dishwasher model number and was taken to a set of parts illustrations. I was easily able to find the o-rings I needed.
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.
