Here are your parts
Replacement parts for General Electric PDW7880J00SS Dishwasher |

Often if you click on a part's picture a new page will open with more info about that part.

Check that all the holes in the spray arms are clean.

Check that the unit is filling properly. Most units fill to just under the heating element.
One way to ensure this is to add a couple quarts of hot water after each fill during a cycle. Just be careful to not overfill the unit. If it then washes OK the problem is probably a dirty screen filter on the input side of the fill valve.

Remove and check/clean the fine filter (Item 451 in Section 4).
Check in the sump (Item 505 in Section 4) for debris or something wrapped around the chopper. Be careful as there is often broken glass in the sump.
