Our 2 year old kitchenaid dishwasher is not washing dishes…

Customer Question
Our 2 year old...

Our 2 year old kitchenaid dishwasher is not washing dishes the way it used to. I always used the normal cycle, but 2 weeks ago, is when I noticed the dishes were not clean. I switched to the tough cycle, & the dishes were getting clean until a few days ago, then I tried the light cycle, & the same thing happened. Water comes into the dishwasher, but doesn't seem to wash over the dishes. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your KitchenAid is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

2 years old. I don't see the model number on the dishwasher.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I don't know what is wrong.
