Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DP840SWP Free-standing Dishwasher
I had the exact same problem with my Whirlpool Quiet Partner IV. I removed the lower arm, and a couple of components below that, and got to the filter/grinder (that thing that chops up and filters the recirculated water before it goes to the pump that feeds the arms). The filter was completely clogged. I used a knife to scrap away the foodstuffs, put everything back together and all worked excellent. Just goes to show you that you should rinse your plates before to place them in the dishwasher.

Tips for a great answer:
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...
