Strange noise from Dishwasher

I have less than 2 yr. old Whirlpool Quiet Partner II that recently is making long low on and off deep vibtrating humming sounds that the wifey and I agree weren't ther before. It appears to be working ok. The dishes are clean but it does sound like there is a problem. TIA Steve

You may want to check the warranty before you do anything.The probblem may be covered & if you do any work yourself the warranty will be voided.

Seal, Lower Sprayarm ??

A little plastic o ring is split under the lower spray arm. Would that be the cause for the noise? A 4.20 part would it be a common type part that I could get at the store ? TIA Steve

WITHOUT THE MODEL NUMBER THIS MAY BE WHAT YOU HAVE....If Its A Hard Plastic Ring It Is That Way Its A Bearing,,, To Turn Off Breaker... Remove Lower Arm And 10-12 Torx Screws.... Under
There Is 1 Impeller.. I Think Is A 3/4 Box Wrench And A 1/4 Socket To Remove Center Bolt Which Will Be Very Tight Due To The Lock Tight On It... Once Its Out There Are 4 More Torx To Remove.. And Lift Out The Filter Assembly.. There You Will See The Chopper And Sump... This Is Where Everything Collects That Doesnt Belong..
