the spray arms are rotated by water coming out of angled jets, this water being forced round by the main circulating pump. suspect it may a fault with this pump

First, confirm that the holes are not blocked on these arms. (I did not want to assume you have done this.)
Then check the impeller on top of the motor stem for being loose or worn/damaged - to rule the impeller out. If it is fine, then the motor is failing and too weak to drive the spray arms.
To answer your question, I think the answer is "They don't make them like they used too!"

Their is a couple possibilities
1) the water level in the tub is insufficent. It should be level or just above the heat element. If not at that the level as long as water pressure to the dishwasher is good the water inlet valve that the water supply connects to is bad
2) the filter inside of the pump is clogged and water is having a hard time getting into the pump to circulate. This link http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/M0203021-00006.png shows where the filter is (item#6) to get to it unscrew the tube on the top of lower wash arm(not shown is the drawing) remove item#2&36 then item #4 to get to the filter
if water valve needs replacing its part#99001359 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;
Good luck,i hope this helps,

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...
