Often if dishes are coming out dirty you either do not have enough water to the unit, the wash arm small ports are all blocked with food, the filter is clogged on the sump assembly or you have a bad pump motor assembly. Check those things to make sure you have enough water and all wash arm ports and filter are clean. If that is the case there is an issue with the main wash motor, which is common to happen. The wash motor often goes bad and will not pump water to the wash arms correctly causing poor wash performance. Here is a link to the complete assembly if that is the case. Also I included a nice helpful video to cove everything for poor wash performance on your unit.
