Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher
I had a garbage disposal installed in sink and a new kitchen faucet. Now my dishwasher will not drain the water. I think that it has something to do with the new garbage disposal. Please help.
Remove the drain line where it hooks into the disposal. See if the plug, which must be removed to let water thru, is still in there. I ran into this on a service call a few years back. Removed to plug and voila! Hope this helps!

The pump is a motor which runs in one direction to spray water in the dishwasher to clean and the opposite direction to drain the water. The problem could be from a clog or kink in the drain hose. Several years ago the drain line would connect to the sink garbage disposal. If the garbage disposal is not draining or the dishwasher connection to the garbage disposal is restricted or clogged the dishwasher will not drain. Under the sink, look at the garbage disposal to see if a rubber hose is connected at the side of the disposal unit. If a hose is connected to the side of the disposal, remove the hose clamp and check for any restrictions from garbage in the inlet or hose. You can use a screwdriver to clean the fitting to the garbage disposal and a wire hanger to free any restrictions in the hose. If the dishwasher does not connect to the garbage disposal it should connect to the sink trap. This is more common with new dishwashers because they have built-in disposals. Disconnect the drain hose from the sink trap and the dishwasher and look for a clog at the sink connection. The dishwasher inlet should have an angled piece of plastic or metal facing downward to prevent the waste from the dishwasher from spraying up into the sink. Do not get to aggressive with the cleaning in order to prevent breaking the angled piece of plastic or metal. Look for any kinks in the hose and try to run water through the hose, but do not use the sink which you removed the drain line from or it could leak under the cabinet. If you see a bad kink replace the hose with a new one. I hope this works and you find the problem without a great deal of time or trouble.
