Question about Dishwashers
Have you checked it is draining properly? Partially-blocked drainage would likely be detected and cause the dishwasher to stop mid cycle, with soap suds left behind. I would check (1) the drain filters inside the dishwasher and (2) that the hose is not kinked (3) that all the S-bends etc where the dishwasher hose connects to the drain under the sink are clear.

so here it is...
get a screw driver (you may need a "star" head driver as well), get in there and take out all that you can and clean it (it all comes out pretty easily)...you will find a lot of undisolved soap and hard water build up...rinse it, scrape it, vacuum it...just get out as much as you can...keep note of how you took it apart so you can put it back together...then put 1/2 to a whole gallon of vinegar in and run a cycle (hi-temp if you have that option)...if it was like mine most of your sprayers were gummed up and the water just wasn't moving through the machine...
to avoid this problem...use half of what you have been using of your detergent...and only fill the "pre rinse" section if you are doing pots and pans....and then only fill that half way as well.
after that run a few cups of vinegar through on an empty cycle once a month...
whole job (not including the wash cycle) 1.5 hours...

are you sure its soap? do you have hard water? that could be leaving spots on your dishes and also not allowing the soap to properly mix with the water. there is a product out that actually filters and softens the water going into your dishwasher. it works great and is way cheaper than a new dishwasher. i would give it a try. i love mine. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com
