We have a Maytag Dishwasher, model # MDB9100AWB.  The spray from the arm does not reach the top rack at all, detergent is not totally disolved at the end of the cycle.  We have checked all the problems mentioned on various websites: The sprayer holes in the dishwasher arm are not blocked, water fills to correct level,  water is pumped out at end of cycle, we think the cycles are running for the correct length of t ime.   Any ideas of what we should check would be great! ** Forgot to mention what we think caused the problem, someone in my family put a peanut butter jar (that was pretty much empty, except for what wasn't scraped out) in the diswasher and ran the cycle.  Seems like since that time the problems started.  Could this cause problems ?

No silver bullet here: if you've really made all those checks you mentioned and you did them accurately, then you need to either replace the pump or get a new dishwasher.

Grand Master, I updated my original post with the peanut butter story, would that cause damage ?

Did the jar still have the label on it? Did it break? If either of these are true then, yes, they can and do cause problems with the pump and/or the filter.

Nothing broke, but there was a label on it.  Is there a way to clean the filter ?  Can a handyman replace the pump ?

To clean the filter remove the spray arm then remove all of those torx screws on the filter cover, remove cover and then the filter pulls straight up, clean and re- install:gimmebeer:
