Your unit is actually manufactured by Electrolux/Frigidaire

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for KENMORE 58715104801 | AppliancePartsPros.com

Here is the tech sheet
http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodin.../154686201.pdf

And a manual which I beleive covers your unit but am not 100 % sure.

First you have to determine if the wash pump is running during wash.

Next check the holes in the wash arms and the filters.

May also be a low fill condition.
Most units fill to just under the heating element.
This can be checked by adding a couple quarts of water after each fill during a cycle. If it now washes OK then check the fill valve.
Just be careful to not overfill it.
Often if the fill is low you will also hear a growling sound because the pump will cavitate (suck in air).
The most common cause is a dirty screen filter on the input side of the fill calve. Remove the valve from the unit and clean/check the filter.
Do not permanently remove it from the valve as it is there to keep crud out of the valve which could hold it open and cause a flood.
