Default Dishwasher sound .. not cleaning.

Thanks for looking at this.. found this forum from homebrewtalk

Our Dishwasher has not been cleaning right for a little while.. and is leaving some scum on our dishes.. I have tried the vinagar wash with no avail.

Here is a video of a crazy sound our dishwasher is making, but it has been making this sound since we moved in (may). Never really have had great results with the washer..

Thanks again for any ideas!

could be a clog water inlet
could be a strainer retaining food particles
could be a bad cutter blade not digesting food particles
could be a water restriction inside the unit due to calcium build up
could be a pos for a dishwasher
could be a poorly positioned discharge hose w or w/o a check valve
could be all of the above, take your pick

New construction? New kitchen or existing? Does the dishwasher drain? I had to knock out the plug from the disposal dishwasher attachment two times in my life. Of course they weren't draining at all.
