Here are your parts
Replacement parts for MAYTAG MDB8600AWW Dishwasher - Undercounter | AppliancePartsPros.com

You have probably already done this but check the pump parts 6, 8 and 9, to see if any of them are damaged or stripped internally.
Try rotating the motor shaft to see if there is any grinding.

If all OK the you probably need a new wash motor (Item 10).

Looking at the price it may make more sense to purchase a new dishwasher unless the unit is in very good shape.
