Dishwasher leaving dirty dishes

\015 Hey there,i've had this dishwasher for about 7 or 8 years and its always been great. but recently, its just doing a really crappy job at washing the dishes. its leaving food on them, everything is cloudy with soap residue. i don't see a bunch of food on the bottom of the dishwasher or anything, and i can't figure out how to get the spinning things apart to see if they need cleaned. we have hard water, so i'm thinking that some of the sprayer holes could be plugged or something. suggestions? i've thought about running a load or 2 with vinegar in the soap holders.thanks!dana\015
