Question about Dishwashers
I just had the same issue on a Technika TSX6SS-2.
Called in a service tech to fix it and it was a little clip under the machine that was putting it into Half Load mode (although the light on the panel wasn't indicating it was). The spring / clip on the clip had broken due to corrosion from the tablets (according to the Tech).
He removed it and all is working OK again - although I can't (and never did) use the Half Load option.

I do not know this specific machine, but most dishwashers showing this issue have the waterswings being clogged with food residu. Remove the swing arms from the machine and clean them.

is water entering into the machine.
is it hot.
is it being heated during pre-wash
is the soap being dispensed
is the pump running when cycling?
do the arms turn freely?
you mentioned the top and bottom shelves. are there places where the dishes 'are' being cleaned?, or are you meaning that in general they are not being cleaned at all?
most of the above indicators are observable by stopping the wash cycle from time to time in various modes.
to see if water is being pumped at all, put a bowl on the top and bottom shelf, and nothing else. if there is water in it after it cycles then the pump is moving at least some water.
start with these observations and please report back

Is the top sprayer clean and not clogged so that the water can flow through? The top may not be functioning properly.

You need to clean the jets on the machine arm with an old toothbrush etc... then clean out the debris filter on the bottom of the tub near the dryer bar. The calcification in the little jet areas causes this problem. This should help.

have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained
about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain
to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed
them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also
found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess
things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out
the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that
will help you with the online buying...
