I had the exact same problem with my Whirlpool Quiet Partner IV. I removed the lower arm, and a couple of components below that, and got to the filter/grinder (that thing that chops up and filters the recirculated water before it goes to the pump that feeds the arms). The filter was completely clogged. I used a knife to scrap away the foodstuffs, put everything back together and all worked excellent. Just goes to show you that you should rinse your plates before to place them in the dishwasher.

Following a cycle, a small pool of clean water inside the tub is typical. Excessive water means the pump isn't pumping water out properly, the drain hose isn't carrying it to the drain pipe, or the house's drain lines are backed up. If dirty water spews from the air gap, the drain line is kinked or clogged. Note: If you've recently installed a garbage disposer, be sure the knockout plug for the dishwasher was removed when the connection was made (see your disposer instructions).

Here is a link with exploded views and parts lists for your dishwasher for reference however based on your description, have you made sure you don't a blockage in the check valve? That's part of the pump drain assembly. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php
You may also have a problem with the pump itself so the documentation on the website will help you evaluate that.
In many instances, its just a blockage of food byproducts inline with the drain system so chances are thats what you will find.. Good Luck on that.

You can get the manual from the Whirlpool website.
Go to the Customer Support, Owner Information, Manuals link and enter your model number. Your exact model is not listed, but any of those listed will be close enough.
Check that the drain line is not kinked in any way, leading to the disposal, and make sure the line is routed up to the top of the cabinet, just underneath the counter top. Otherwise water can flow back into the dishwasher from the sink.
Make sure all filter screens are clean.
You can probably find an exploded view breakdown on SearsPartsDirect.com
