Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI02IRBS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
I suspect the impeller may not be moving enough water to properly rotate the spinner arms.
I first checked the inlet solenoid to insure hot water was coming in. I added more water by hand in case it was shutting off too soon. I then set each arm to a known positon. Bowls were placed on the top rack to catch water from the top spinner. I closed the door, then opened the door during wash or rinse. The arms would only sometimes be found rotated, and the bowls had little or no water in them.
I removed the bottom spinner assembly to check the impeller, and it is spinning during either cycle. I also ran the units self test, which indicated no problem (of course!). Do I have a bad motor or impeller linkage? Or???
Without the model number of your Maytag number, I can not determine if when you order a wash pump motor you also get the impeller.
Sounds like you are on the right path to getting your dishwasher to wash dishes again.
Oh, while you have the dishwasher open, check that the heating element has not failed using a Multimeter.
