You may be getting sand in from the supply lines. Fill a clear glass container from the sink a few times and look at the bottom for sand particles. You may be getting sand from a pool filter? Remove the filter from the faucet head (it should unscrew) and look for sand particles in it. You may not be getting them in the kitchen sink if the dishwater inlets are below the sink as the particles may be sinking to the bottom of the pipes. You may need to put a filter in the dishwasher inlet. Try filling the dishwasher by hand with bottled water once and then see if the sand is still there. If so, it probably comes in through the water supply.

First, check the holes on the upper spray arm. They should be clear of food and debris.
Next, There's a check valve (ball) built into the motor unit. Either it's stuck, or the motor isn't pausing at the appropriate time to switch from bottom spray to top spray. You can test the check valve by opening the door momentarily while it's running. The spray noise inside should sound distinctly different. Pausing longer will switch back to the lower spray arm.
If the check valve works, you'll need a new timer.

To fix your draining problem you need to check the air gap(if you have one) , check if there is voltage going to your drain pump during the draining cycle. If there is voltage coming to your water pump and the dishwasher is still not draining then the problem could be a clogged drain hose, a clogged air gap or a bad drain pump. if there is no voltage detedcted on the drain pump during the drain cycle, then it could be a water level-switch/solonioed , wiring, or a control board problem.

Tips for a great answer:
I appreciate your inquiry, friend!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher is displaying an error code of "5H". That appears to be the time remaining on your wash cycle. Typically an error code would be displayed with a number and an "E". What is the current problem with your dishwasher? Are you getting long wash times? There is a sensor inside of your dishwasher that reads how dirty the water is, if your dishwasher continues to circulate dirty water it will tell that sensor to continue washing. You may want to check your filter, which is located at the bottom of the tub, for any debris. Additionally, if your drain hose is restricted it may be providing dirty water back into your tub. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt
