Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB9750AW 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.

The seals that the racks "plug" into need replaced. Ours had the same issue and replaced the seals and it works fine now.

Tips for a great answer:
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...
