Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper broke or food chopper filter screen clogged.
Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.
Inspect food chopper:
1. Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm.
2. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover.
3. Remove primary filter
4. Remove food chopper cover to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage or blockage.
If you need further assistance, let me know

SOURCE: I have a Frigidaire Ultra
I may have the answer. I had what sounded to be the same problem. I found the dishes were dirty after they were cleaned, but I found there may have been a big pot lid blocking the upper arm. I decided to run the machine again, and after a bit opened the dishwasher after to make sure it was not a problem with the arm. Sure enough, the arm wasn't moving. However, I found out on the Frigidaire webpage that some models have an alternating spray cycle, where only one arm spins at any given time. After reading this I checked again, and it had moved by that time. I checked a few times more to confirm this. So it ended up it was an arm blockage after all. Hope this helped...good luck.

make sure that there is nothing blocking the racks, no big pots or pans, if thats ok then take out the bottom rack, u will see the sprayer, use something long, a screwdriver should do, u should see a slot in the sprayer at the bottom, stick the driver through it and give it a turn, it will loosen, take it off and make sure it isnt clogged, also, ull see a little cover that looks like a grate, take that off also and make sure it isnt clogged under neath

I would check your fill valve screen, where your water line connects to
the dishwasher, lots of times i will see that screen clogged,
especially on customers homes that have wells.
There is no way to change the fill time on these.
There is also the potential problem with the float sticking if it is gunked up it will not allow water in...see that it moves up and down freely and you should here a clicking noise.....If it is not one of these there could be a problem...with the timer...I am providing a link that will help walk you through this problem in a more technical...manner...if you are not comfortable performing these tests...i suggest you forego it and let a tech handle it....
this is one continuous link.....you can scroll down until you see the won't issue.
I hope this helps ..good luck, have a good day& please rate my effort......The Fang

Some spray arms out there are reverse threaded, however the one that you are dealing with should be regular threads. Should be an opening at the very bottom of the spray arm where you can stick a screwdriver through and use both hands(one on each end of screwdriver) and carefully loosen it. Make sure you get the new one on as tight as you can by hand, then check to make sure its tight by using the screwdriver again. With the screwdriver through the hole, and one hand on each end of it, just apply pressure clockwise, but you do not have to force it. Hand tight plus an ever so slight turn with the screwdriver should do it. Don't forget that anytime you are replacing the spray arm, you must always check once the new one is in place that you do not have a leak underneath the dishwasher. Also remove all water before you start replacing the spray arm to prevent water from leaking once you break the seal when loosening the spray arm.
