What make/model of dishwasher is it?

 

Off the top of my head, I can tell you that Whirlpool, Maytag, KitchenAid, and some Kenmore dishwashers (they're all made by Whirlpool) have what is essentially a small "garbage disposal" in the bottom of them.  It's possible for that disposal to become clogged with debris which impedes water flow through the unit, resulting in dirty dishes.  You remove the bottom water arm and the cover below it to access the "disposal" (which sits in a recess at the bottom of the unit).
