Hello and thank you for the opportunity to help you.

 

On the inside of your dishwasher. Look on the frame beside the door gasket and retrieve your full model and serial number for me if you would be so kind.

The dishwasher is running I'm assuming. Does it seem to spray water?

yes goes threw a whole cycle but dishes dont seem to be touched they look the same as they went in

Ok, check out this link. Look at part number 11. That is your wash impeller. It sounds like that may be broken. I will tell you it can be a real patience buster to get it out. The quarter inch hex screw has thread lock on it and it is TIGHT.

The part comes as a kit. 675806
