Manifold had several holes in it - it was an older 2-piece version made of soft plastic. New replacement part seems to be much more durable. Also noticed water level in the bottom of the tub was very low; when I added water during the wash cycle it ran much better. Replaced the water inlet valve, the tub then filled properly with water, water sprayed properly to the top of the dishwasher and the dishes were clean.
