There is no food grinding motor in a dishwasher. That is a pump motor
and its not made for grinding food, spoons, or toothpicks. Your
dishwasher has a strainer to help prevent this kind of stuff from being
drawn into the pump. Your household dishwasher probobly just has a
plastic impellar that a spoon will shred to peices. Even commercial
diswashers that have cast iron impellars can be stopped dead in their
tracks by a smal spoon, normally bending the shaft of the motor.
Your pump motor is probobly stopped up with garbage and if you continue to run it without cleaning the impeller out, you risk damage to the pump, motor, and the impellar.
You will need to remove the pump and clean it out throughly. It may be to late for that pump, it may already be damaged and need to be replaced. If it has been removed, you will need to reinstall the strainer on the pump to prevent this kind of stuff from happening in the future. Also, if the impellar looks chewed up, replace it.
Also, contrary to the old commercial of the housewife putting a whole cake in a dishwasher to clean the cake plate it sits on, I will tell you that this is not good for ANY dishwasher. Always clean the scraps off of the dishes before loading them in the dishwasher.
