You can use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove all the water.
then you need to check the drain pump for any thing that may be blocking or stopping the flow of water if you do not find anything there then you may need to replace the drain pump

Why is water pooling under right crisper?

On defrost refrigerators water is drained down the sides to an outlet on the bottom of the interior of the unit and then to a tray under the unit, close to the floor, where it is heated and evaporates.
If he hole inside is plugged then the water will pool inside.
Take out both crispers and try to find the location where the water will flow out. It may be plugged with gunk The inside bottom of the unit may have indented runs where the water will be directed to the outlet.

Water collecting at the bottom of dishwasher, used it for the first time and there is a big pool of water at the bottom of the dishwasher when i open up the drawer

Your drain might be plugged. Check the bottom drain. If the water has no where to go, it will fill the bottom up. There might be a cap since it is new. It has to have a place to drain.

Dishwasher does not drain completely and runs out on floor

DIshwasher output is plugged. The drain hose from the bottom goes up and then most times to the drain on the kitchen sink. If the hose is plugged when it attempts to pump water out to the drain, it may find a weak spot ( usually where the hose clamps to the bottom of the dish washer ). Thus the water on the floor.
You will need to remove debris at the bottom ( inside ) and remove the kickplate and look to where the hose is attached, for leaks and tighten the hose clamp. If you have paper/plastic/ etc. IN the hose you may have to remove the hose enough to clear the plastic tubing. You can try air or a snake.
It could even be something as a bad output tube ( cracked, worn, mouse eaten hole...etc ). or your kitchen sink is plugged causing this too,to be plugged.

Good Luck

Dishwasher doesn't seem to be cleaning. Detergent cup opens, but detergent oozes down the inside of the door. Dishwasher is Frigidaire FDB956RBC

More then likely your water is not circulating properly.
Can be a tricky fix, Usually involves turning the unit upside down and replacing the impeller.
Could also be something blocking the jets (Little holes in the Water arms) Poke them with a small toothpick or something small to make sure the water is flowing good threw them.
Most of my experiences it has been the impeller wheel that usually goes bad.

Hope this helps.
Good luck!

The dishwasher in my kitchen doesn't seem to drain and it seems pump is not working

My motto is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it.", but in this case we will make an acception. Check the inside of the washer for a float device sitting on the bottom. Floats can get stuck or bent over, make sure it goes up and down freely
