Hello there:
If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, \015\012check these:

Often the \015\012problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage \015\012disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear\015\012 any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the \015\012hose before starting the dishwasher again.\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Pump\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is\015\012 usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of \015\012the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but \015\012first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray \015\012arm support. \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan \015\012blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which\015\012 forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is \015\012the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash \015\012impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. If any of the pump components are \015\012defective, you need to replace them.\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Drain valve and/or solenoid\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an \015\012electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve \015\012opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the\015\012 diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or \015\012filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. \015\012Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With \015\012these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's \015\012energized, the drain valve diverts the water. \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Other dishwashers reverse the direction of \015\012the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve.\015\012 Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.
MotorIf the motor isn't turning or working, the unit \015\012won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If\015\012 not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but \015\012doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced. \015\012\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck \015\012if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for \015\012more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up.\015\012 If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors \015\012can't be serviced.\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Timer\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012\011\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\012 Part of what the timer does is control the motor \015\012and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not \015\012drain and you need to replace the timer.\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012

Dishwasher: Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner. Has worked fine until had a house plumbing blockage which made water pool in the bottom of the dishwasher as well as kitchen sink. Tried to get it to drain at first using keypad. Drain light clicked on and then off because there was nowhere for water to do.
