After my last washing we found a round plastic disk inside that appears to have fins in it for circulation. This is the information that is on disk, a number 8268296 4, a code of PAfsp MOLL. What part of the dishwasher would this have come from, I can't find a spot where it's missing from.

Re: Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Model 15882
It most likely belongs in
center of the dishwasher’s ceiling and is usually held in by a plastic
pin. It is used to spray water on the dishes in the upper rack. I would need your full model number (including the part that
comes before 15882, like 665. or 110. for example) to know the part number for that pin, since it is probably broken. Hope

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher is displaying an error code of "5H". That appears to be the time remaining on your wash cycle. Typically an error code would be displayed with a number and an "E". What is the current problem with your dishwasher? Are you getting long wash times? There is a sensor inside of your dishwasher that reads how dirty the water is, if your dishwasher continues to circulate dirty water it will tell that sensor to continue washing. You may want to check your filter, which is located at the bottom of the tub, for any debris. Additionally, if your drain hose is restricted it may be providing dirty water back into your tub. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt
Check the center wash arm assembly. If the center wash arm isn't getting water, all of the dishes in the upper rack will come out dirty. Check to be sure the center wash arm assembly is mating properly with the water supply nozzle in the back of the dishwasher. Also check to be sure the little holes in the center wash arm aren't clogged or blocked.

This model had two styles of motors which often became stuck. First secure power to the unit at the breaker panel. Then remove lower cover. If the motor is square you can unstick it by moving the fins which are visible on the end of the motor shaft. Also check for a broken off aluminum fin which occasionally happened due to poor casting which jams the motor.
If it has a black round motor, there is a fan blade located between the motor and pump, there may be a small plastic cover there or not, reach between the pump and motor and rotate the fan blade to free the motor. Lube with silicone spray. While doing this also check free movement of triangle shaped piece of plastic, it is the drain valve controlled by the drain solenoid. If it does not move then the solenoid has failed, (remove C clip and two philips screws behind to replace it). Lastly, make sure disposal is working if you have one. if it does not work the dishwasher will not drain. There is a small red reset and in the center a 1/4 inch hex hole to use an allen wrench to free disposal on most models. Hope this helps.
Sounds to me as if there is a obstruction in the pump or the pump is fualty,I would suggest that you open the bottom panel(remember to unplug the unit first)locate the pump,disconect the hoses from the pump and feel inside the hoses first,thenfeel inside the houseing where the two hoses connect,you should be able to turn the impeller easily,also do a visual check to see if there is any damage to the impeller,(at this point I would test before moving on to the next step)if all is well and no problem found then I would look at the pressure switch,this you will need to look for a round unit it will have two or three wires connected to it and a plastic tube on the one end,it is flat at the botttom with the wires connected to the top and the tube on the rounded edge,I would simply replace it.Give this a try and it should solve the problem,
JP Weld works great on repairing these junky Maytag parts. Note that they don't have a replacement for these upper wheels and a guy is selling expensive stainless steel replacements. The round connector broke off of ours that holds the wheel to the rack. My wife found a plastic button that fit within the space and we glued it with JP Weld epoxy (water and temperature resistant). 10 washes later, still working great! I expect it will "heal" any other plastic parts. NEVER will I buy a Maytag again!
Have you tried a treatment (not sure of the name) that you wash plastic dishes with that takes the orange stains out? It can be found at Walmart for under $10. I don't know of anything that can prevent this problem but I don't see why a product that takes it out of plastic dishes can't take it off the plastic of the dishwasher. Hope it helps!
