GE Dishwasher GDT655SMJ5ES Not Cleaning

I have a GE GDT655SMJ5ES dishwasher that suddenly hasn't been cleaning very well lately. It doesn't make any unusual noises, and it sounds like everything is running as it should. I checked the incoming water temp, and there are no clogs going out. Spray arms are not clogged. There was a lot of crud in the macerator, which I cleaned out, but that didn't change anything. I checked the circulation pump terminals with a multimeter, and it will read in the 170s for a second and then nothing. I get no reading at all on the drain pump.

Any suggestions for next steps are appreciated!
Ok, I don't know what else would cause it unless your wash motor impeller is bad. You may want to take out the wash motor and see if the impeller is stripped.

Here's the circulation pump(wash motor) for your model, if needed:
Circulation Pump WD26X23258
