Poor cleaning can be caused by the dishwasher not getting enough water. A common cause of this is a bad water-inlet valve. To access the valve you'll need to remove the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

When a water-inlet valve goes bad, you may hear what plumber's call "water hammer." This could be the "airplane taking off" sound that you are hearing (excellent description by the way!) If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it.
Good info on this here:


PS: I have a Frigidare DW and it has never cleaned well!
