Re: No water is coming out of the spout in the dishwasher
I am experiencing the same problem on my kenmore dishwasher (model: 665.1702). there appears to not be enough water spraying out of the washers as the soap is still in the dispenser at the end of the wash and the dishes are dirty. I've tried removing the bottom washer but can't figure out how to remove it. Did either of you find a resolution?

Check and make sure the Air Dry button is not engaged. Check the clean out at the bottom. When you push the top rack in insure it is hitting the opening in the back. Finally purchase some Lemi Shine Machine cleaner for the smell, it's likely you have a some stuff lurking in the screens causing the smell, this made my Icon dishwasher work like new.
You are right to go to the inlet filters. If they are clogged you would lose pressure, but not that much...The pressure pump is probably not outputting any longer. Locate it and see if it is moving freely.
I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife alsocomplained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried invain to clean the things...

open the door and look inside the top of machine.
might be a rubber plug there. if plug is not water tight
or missing water will go thru and hit countertop. wet wooden countertop
equals sawdust like material thru to dishes
The problem most people encounter with dishwashers is a simple inability to get the dishes clean. There might be stuck-on food
or residue from the detergent. A water pressure problem may be the
culprit. You may need to replace the water intake valve. Another common
problem is mineral build-up. If your house has hard water, the mineral
build-up can clog the water jets. Clear each jet with a wire or pin,
and run an empty load with some vinegar in the detergent dispenser
about once a month.
Sometimes, the dishwasher has problems draining properly. There could
be a clog in the drain hose, or a problem with the pump. It's also
possible that the dishwater is getting too sudsy, and sensors in the
washer aren't detecting the soap foam as water. This causes it to shut
down the drain cycle too early. Just use less detergent.
it may be hard water or some other minerals in your water. there is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system and it actually filters the water going into the dishwasher. i tried everything to get my dishes clean but nothing worked until i tried this system. my glasses all had a white, cloudy look to them and it was terrible. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com. it is very affordable and works amazing. the filter fits right under the sink and solves the problem immediately. if you use the discount code DFMTEN you will get 10% off
