1st. A roaring sound occurs with about 30 minutes remaining on the wash cycle and 6 minutes remaining on the rinse cycle. 2nd. On the underside of the top of the discharge assembly there is a disc that appears to be held in place with 3 plastic pins, yet when the assembly is righted, the disc falls off of the pins. 3rd. The O ring seems to have expanded and bulges from it's groove, is this correct? (discharge assembly).

Craig for Model Number mdb7100 or mdb7160

ANSWER Hello Craig, The entire problem is with the discharge housing assembly 6-917075. If that part that comes off can come off, it has to be replaced. When the pump spins, this part is causing the roar and since the water has to be forced through this parts fins, it cannot discharge correctly. Replace this part and the issue will be gone. The "o" 99001326 ring should be replaced also. The overuse of soap and rinsing all of the dishes has caused the chemical reaction to attack the rubber and the "o" ring will never be right unless it is replaced.
