Question about Frigidaire FDB949GF Dishwasher
Most likely the wash sump is blocked. Refer this diagram. You will have to open the sump (item 14) and look for the golf ball type device (item 58). This must be stuck in the drain position. This dishwasher uses common sump for wash and drain and the ball acts like a valve to direct water in the proper direction.
Not sure if you replaced the motor assembly because the motor was not working or because you felt it was linked to the water not circulating.
Hope this helps fix the problem. Please rate the solution to help fixya serve you better in future.

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound. If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve.
Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete.
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.
The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes.
Hope this helps...
