SOURCE: not cleaning dishes
For starters run the dishwasher through its entire cycle empty and add only one cup of vinegar. This will clean and disinfect. Next run the dishwasher through a second full cycle with nothing but water. This may be all you need to do to get your dishwasher back up and running.

First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.
Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks
Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.
Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Our Kenmore was not cleaning the upper dishes properly also. Obviously the water pressure delivered by the pump was restricted. Under the lower spinner and a larger plastic plate held on with 4 Torx screws and a smaller cover (2 more screws) over a small grinder cutter arm connected to the pump running around a circular metal perforated disk. This disk was clogged with the plastic from the dishwasher tabs - DON'T USE THEM!
Sadly the clog had also damaged plastic end of the pump that engaged with this spinning "cutter arm" so I had to modify the arm to make it fit again.
Once we stopped using the Tabs, all our problems disappeared.
