Whirlpool Quiet Partner II Noise and Dirty Dishes...

\015 I have had a Whirlpool Quiet Partner II for about 2 years. Recently (1 or 2 months ago) the dishwasher makes a whirring/humming noise right after it fills with water and through the entire cycle. At times it sounds like the noise pulses slightly. Now, as well, the dishes (especially the glasses) are not getting clean and have small food pieces on them. I have disassembled the dishwasher and check the chopper area which is fine.Does anyone have an idea of what could be the problem? I saw something about checking the "flapper valve" and possibly cleaning the waste outlet. Are these possibilities or should I look for something else? Thanks...\015

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III that is 8 years old and recently stopped cleaning top rack dishes.

I am guessing not enough water pressure to upper arm. Wou
