Hi Bill Walters - Generally speaking, the drain pump receives power directly from the main control board. If you have verified that the drain pump does not work then more than likely it is not getting power or the drain hose is restricted. If the drain hose is attached to an in-sink garbage disposer, please verify that the plug in disposer has been removed. If it proves to be ineffective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.
Just had a similar problem with my Frigidaire FDB834RFS0 model. Dishes were not getting clean. Noticed some detergent still remaining in the dispenser after completing a wash cycle. Checked the water level during several cycles and noticed it was barely visible in the bottom of the tub. Decided to remove the water supply valve and solenoid to check it, thinking I would probably have to buy another one. Took it apart and found there is a mesh water strainer on the inlet side that was full of bits of junk. Cleaned it out and decided to reinstall to see if it made a difference. Noticed immediately when starting the next cycle that I could hear the water gushing into the tub. The water level rose significantly and the result was clean dishes and no left over detergent in the dispenser.
Check your water level to see if the water valve is even filling up properly. After starting the cycle, listen when the water fillup begins and ends. Open door and see if there is enough water at the bottom. Should fill up to the float valve. If there is not enough water, the valve needs to be replaced. Costs about $25 and can be replaced diy if you are handy with pushing back the hose clamp and undoing and redoing the water line connection.
Make sure you unplug the electric, and shut off the water before you even want to look behind the toe plate. Dishwashers have high electric hazard behind the toe plate..
