Dang!  Looks like the Force nailed it.   The part number WD15X10003 sounds like a good fill valve part number.

This is so simple that I've decided I must be more retarded than I previously thought I was...

:withstupid:

For the last two hours I've been scouring the web in search of a solution to this exact same issue, which has been taunting me for about a month, and after a bunch of failed attempts I finally figured it out.

Adding water fix = Nope, didn't work for me - :fingerwag:

Float relay/valve fix = Un-Uh, I dinked around with it to no avail - :fingerwag:

Cleaning out strainer and drain fix = Forget it, didn't help - :fingerwag:

ACTUAL FIX:

I took a $.05 tie wrap and ZIPPED THE MIDDLE SPRAY ARM TUBE TIGHT TO THE UPPER RACK in order to prevent it from vibrating. When I shut the door and the dishwasher started doing it's thing, all I heard was a nice quiet hum - just how it's supposed to be!

Now all somebody has to do is explain how GE can list that frickin' conduit tube (which is nothing more than a two-holed straw) for $56.00 and my world will be complete. 

:P

Regards,

TF

My parents have a Triton XL GSD6660 white dishwasher. I picked it out myself and was so proud because it was a good price and is the best performing dishwasher we've ever seen. Washes everything, and is pretty quiet. Until 9 months ago it starte making the grumbling noise. I took the whole thing apart down to the motor and found nothing wrong. It still washes great, just with a grumble.

Until i hunted around online and found posts about loose piping in the rear. sure enough, the rear conduit was loose so i tightened it down. But, it didn't solve the issue.
The next step was to replace the upper docking cone, but we were reluctant to do that.

Zip ties eh? I'll totally try that out the next time i'm home. What a wonderful idea.

Oh, and as far as the food grinder is concerned:
On my adventures of taking this machine apart, i did eventually find the hard food disposer. It's a spinning blade in front of the pump intake. BUT, the water goes through 2 filters before it reaches the pump, so the grinder is a moot point. I guess it's there just to say "they have it". But food will never reach it. It just filters too well.

you don't need to take the valve apart just start the washer at the begining and after the washer fills and starts to wash stop the washer and see if the water comes just under the heating element.and if noise is still there try adding a little more water and see what hapens post back cdwasher
