I assume you are having spray issues, or a grinding noise. If odor is your issue, go to the bottom of the message.
For the dishwasher pictured above, Open the door. Remove the lower rack.
Push in the tabs holding the upper basket rail end caps and slide the caps up and out. Remove the upper rack. Clean the holes in the upper (or middle) spray arm.
Hold the lower spray arm still and rotote the thumb tab clockwise. Remove the lower spray arm. Clean the holes in the lower spray arm.
Use a small flat screwdriver to release the tabs holding the upper spray tube from the dishwasher inner wall and ceiling. Rotate the spray tube to the right and remove the tube.
Using a # 20 Torx bit, remove the (about 10) small screws holding in the top of the sump assembly. Remove the top section with the fingers all around it.
Using a # 15 Torx bit, remove the screw holding the round cover over the pump suction. Remove the cover (grab the tab sticking off the corner with a pliers and pull up.)
Anything stuck in the sump will now be visible. If the screen is completely clogged up, then the blade isn't wiping the screen clean. In this case, the screen should be replaced.
The screen is removable, but difficult to re-install. If you need to re-place it, put an open end wrench between the screen and the rotating blade to hold the spring compressed. Also, notice the screen isn't round. The flat edges fit only in the slots they came from.
If it's odor or white powder you want to clean out, use a dishwasher cleaning product such as Dishwasher Magic.
I tell every dishwasher customer: "You do not need to rinse your dishes before washing. But you do need to scrape them off."

My Whirlpool Quiet Wash plus dishwasher seems to have died. No power. None of the buttons work, it quiet mid-cycle. No breaker issue, my garbage disposal runs off same breaker and is working fine. Any ideas? I was thinking the comp. board that the buttons work off of is fried. If this is the case any idea how much to replace it? Would it be cheaper to buy a new dishwasher?

Absolutly! There is a website that allows you to do a bunch of stuff to the front of your dishwasher , including changing colors, without actually unscrewing anything. Check out www.applianceart.com. They do sell stainless metal panels for cheap there too.

This is a bad wash pump. Looking at about $175 for just the sump assembly. You could do it yourself, but unit would need to be uninstalled.
