open the door while in the wash cycle and check water is spraying from the spray arms and that the spray arms are rotating. get back to me with the results and i'll try to give some guidance

Make sure that all the spray arms are clean and not blocked firstly
Pour a half a cup of white vinegar straight into the bottom (sump) of the dishwasher and run it on fast wash.
The vinegar has a small acidic base which breaks down fats etc.
This may fix the problem, or there could be another problem. It would be hard to tell without looking at the unit itself.

there is no filter except the screen in the water inlet valve to keep big pieces of grit in the water from defecting the inlet valve..
i dont know exactly why but it sounds like your unit was not installed with a recommended air gap in the drain or something similar and somehow dirty sink/drain/sewer water is making its way back into the unit and onto your dishes.
often times there is a little rubber check valve/flapper in the drain line either installed in the pump or the drain hose just after the pump to keep foreign material from entering the unit..
other than that it would just be mineral and calcium deposits if you are on well water or chunky city water..
hope this helps,
best of luck,

OE in your dishwasher is a
drain error and dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked
drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain
is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then
remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump
for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely.
Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the
chopper assembly. If the issue
returns after cleaning then the drain pump assembly should be replaced. Hope
this helps...please post back for further assistance.
