If its not heating and washing in cold water then it will give poor wash results like you have.
What you will find is it will be either the heater, wiring or the control board at fault causing this fault.
You need to pull the dishwasher out and remove the panels under there and access the heater cylinder. Check the wiring block on there and check it hasn't burnt out as this can happen.
If that's fine then you need a multi meter to test the heater. Check it for continuity. It should read about 28 Ohms. If faulty then you need to replace it and that should cure it.
If they are fine then you need to remove the outer door panel and then the outer dishwasher door and there you will see the wiring loom running down the door. Open this up and inspect the wires and check for any broken. As were the go round the bend in the door they can snap.
But if the wires are fine as is the heater then im afraid the control board will be the fault here and will need to be replaced.
Check them if you can as for the fault you report this is usually either the heater, wiring or control board at fault here.
