If I open it, and tap the water blades that are under the top shelf, the noise sometimes stops. Any suggestions? Ironically, this happened the day after the maytag repairman replaced the defected 'recalled' heating element. Thank you, Sammie.
There might be a small piece of something like a screw a piece of bone or anything hard that has found their way inside the impeller, or chopper area that is at the top of the motor, or the noise could be coming from the drain pump, this dishwasher carry a seperate pump motor assembly from the main wash motor so the noise can be coming from either the pump motor , or from the main motor.
