I'm having an issue with the aforementioned dishwasher. Started the other day where as soon as you turn it on, it starts making a rattling sound (please see video link below). Any ideas on what the issue could be?
(I flipped the locking clip to get the dishwasher to start with the door open)

That noise sounds like the drain pump. Like a foreign object is in it rattling around.

Remove the electrical connector to the drain pump and see if that noise is still present.

Here's the drain pump for your model:
DD31-00005A Drain Pump

Jake, thanks for the reply. I'm only getting around to this now. I believe you are correct, it sounds like an object in the drain pump. To that end, is it possible to remove the object from the drain pump or does the pump need to be replaced?

Lots of times you can just remove the object from the drain pump and it will still work fine.:)

But if it does damage to the impeller in the drain pump, then you will need to order the new drain pump.
