The machine runs. it fills and it washes but, It continues past the rinse and dry cycles. So when the dial reaches the end there is hot water standing in the base. I have removed the drain tube and it is clear. And once in a great while when I turn the dial to the rinse and hold cycle it will start the drain process but that does not happen in the normal cycle.
I would bet that it is the timer switch assy.
Motor runs ? yes
drain tube clear ? yes
If there is no drain valve to deal with, the problem must be the contacts during the timer cycle, since the main obviously works or you wouldn't be able to wash anything.
you need a new timer switch assy.

Hi, I just want clarification. Is the washer filling to a point when it starts draining the water before it starts to agitate? If this is the case, check the end of your drain hose and make sure that it is as high as the top of the washer. Make sure that where it goes into the drain pipe that it is a loose fitting so that air will **** back into the drain hose. Please let me know if I have given you the right information or if I have missed what you are describing so I can assist you further.
Water-heating cycle Timer Water-heating cycle
Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:
On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.
On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.
Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.
When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it. Good luck!
Try using a quick cycle and see what happens. Don't use sanitize or any extra heat cycle. Sometimes during sanitize high temp rinse or other cycles the timer motor is stopped until the water heats up. The sensor could be defective. Not all machines do this and I'm not real familiar with your particular one.
