This answer was rated:

Our Hotpoint dishwasher circa 2000 is not cleaning items - we have noticed that the detergent is not dissolving properly leaving a clogging residue in the compartment. We have cleaned spray arms/holes. Have cleaned filters and put in salt.

Any advice would be appreciated.
how much water is in the bottom of the tub after this fills?

Wife does not understand questionFrown But she thinks "not a lot".
well if this isn't getting enough water then it wont dissolve the soap or clean the dishes, you should have about 2" after the fill, if you don't you need to replace the fill valve. thanks Bryan
