Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

If you put a cup in the upper rack sitting up right. Let the dishwasher start and run for 5 minutes and does the cup fill up with water?

ok then the top rack is definitely getting water pressure. Make sure your wash arms aren't clogged and if that checks good, it sounds like you just have the same problem that many people are having recently. You'll need to use an additive called "Glass Magic" or baking soda to help the dishes clean. Go to the two links below and you can read why your dishes are going to bad. The 2nd one is a video from my local news that aired recently.
