Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your dishwasher today. If the washer is draining and spinning but it won't wash, it means that your circulation pump is either not running or not creating the force needed to circulate the water properly. Now you're going to need a multimeter to test the circulation pump. Unplug the wires going to the circulation pump below the dishwasher. Below is what the circulation pump looks like so you can locate it.

Turn the washer to wash and test power between the 2 wires going to the pump to see if you have 110 volts when it should be washing. If not, then you need a new timer because that is what sends power to the pump. If you do have 110 volts to the pump, then remove the pump and make sure nothing is jamming or rubbing on the impeller causing it to not pump. If it all checks good, then replace the circulation pump (which is different than the small drain pump).
