Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details the dishwasher may not be filling with enough water. A lack of water will cause the pump to sound different as well as washability. You could try this; once the dishwasher has completed filling, open the door and check the water level. It normally fills with about 1.2 gallons for each fill cycle. The water should be covering the large filter in the bottom center area of the tub. If it appears to be short of water, open the door and manually pour another quart of water in and then see if the pump sounds normal. If it does, then I would suspect the water inlet valve is restricted and would need to be replaced. If you do replace the water inlet valve, before reconnecting the water supply to the new valve, purge about a gallon of water into bucket to flush out any debris from the water line to prevent the new valve from collecting any debris. NOTE: Disconnect the power supply and turn the water supply off before replacing the water inlet valve.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

If the grinding is coming from the inside then the only option would be to get into the sump and check odd things such as bones, plastic ties or tabs.

The image below will help you get into the sump of the dishwasher.

Q:

Why won't my dishwasher start?

A:

You did not indicate if the wash motor was coming on and running during the water/service test. I assume that you have the technical data sheet. The wash motor is supplied the voltage to run from the Blue wire at the control board. Voltage from the Blue wire to white neutral at the both sides of the neutral door switch would need to be checked. If voltage is present at the Blue wire to White coming off the control board check for a broken wire somewhere between the board and wash motor. Check voltage at the dishwasher junction box where the incomming voltage supply is connected also.

Use caution when working with live voltage, if you do not feel safe and comfortable in checking voltages I recommend calling a service technician.

To be able to diagnose your failure it will require a volt/ohm meter. Check the voltage coming off the Blue wire at the control board to the white wires on the door switch while the door switches are closed and programmed to start and run. The Blue wire is the one that supplies the voltage to the wash motor. You also need to make sure that one of the 2 switches is not bad.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dishwasher.

A:

Measured the voltage between the blue wire and the 2 white wires in the door switch registered 1.04VAC. Both switches are working fine - open circuit when the door is open, closed when the door is closed on both switches by measuring the resistance. Switches are not shorted with each other. Must be a loose wire because, it worked while I was diagnosing. I closed it all up and worked again now letting it go through all the cycles. Came back a couple of hours later and tried it again, no start.
