own Kitchen Aid Dishwasher model # KDC-20, works but makes

Resolved Question:

own Kitchen Aid Dishwasher model # XXXXX works but makes loud noise when pump runs. Was told by tech to continue to use it and when it quits working, buy a new dish washer. I found pump ($200) on line. Am I wise to try to replace pump? All else works on this dishwasher. I am o.k. gambling and will replace myself. Any comments? Dishwasher got to be over 20 years old.

you should check the pump for something in it before replacing this , take the spray arm off and the pieces under it to get to the pump impeller, theres something in it, remove the obstruction and this should run fine, you may have a piece of broken glass in it, thanks Bryan
