Dishwasher doesn’t clean dishes

First thing I would look at is unit getting enough water?  I think,  if I remember right,  it should come up to the bottom of heater, or close. Make sure water shut off is turned on all the way. Is there a copper line to unit? It may be kinked some where. If line looks ok you may have trash in screen on water valve. Most water valve now a days you can't “take apart” and clean so replacement is only option.

ConfusedMaytag (8460BAX) Dishwasher doesn't get dishes clean.

Pump doesn't appear to have enough pressure. If I open the door during wash cycle, the lower arm is still spinning and popup drops but upper arm doesn't turn. Water just trickles out of it. Have cleaned pump screens.

Any suggestions appreciated.
