Question about Kenmore 76602 / 76604 / 76609
Depending on the age of the dishwasher, worst case your wash pump motor is failing (and will soon fail completely.)
But try this first:
-Check the all wash arms and unblock all holes that are blocked.
-If that does does not help., with a screw driver, remove the screws that holds the filter / shroud to the dishwasher base (under the lower wash arm, which must also be removed.)
-Take digital pictures of each step so you can put it back together.
-Rinse everything that has been removed, especially the filter.
-Inspect with a flashlight the whole sump area, remove all debris (watch out for broken glass!)
-Inspect the impeller to make sure it is not broken and is properly connected.
-Reassemble and test.
If this fails, the motor mention above needs to be replaced.

I 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...
