No apparent blockage....there is a guard around the drain to catch big things. Water ran out onto kitchen floor. Would like to take guard off to further examine, but is attached with unique screws...not philips, hex, etc...something I am unfamiliar with.

Re: Kenmore built in dishwasher drain quit working
If it looks somewhat like a elongated and cropped figure 8 it is what we around here call a clutch drive. if it looks like a 6 point star, it is a torx drive.. Be aware, the screws holding the guard in place may also be holding the pump in place under the unit. if so removing the screws would allow the pump to fall off the bottom of the unit.
If the unit washes, the motor and pump are working (the same motor/pump that washes the dishes also drains the unit)
if the motor is not running during the drain cycle, it is most likely the timer or a connection to the timer
if the unit is not running at all, it could be the motor or timer
if the motor/pump is working, I would first ensure the drain line is not clogged (pump may be trying to drain the unit and forcing the water out were ever it can due to a blocked drain hose, this would explain the water on the floor. I have found that when a drain line is blocked, it is usually blocked where the drain hose connects to the drain pipe under the sink.

The problem is a solenoid under the unit. It is a small black cylinder that operates a valve to change from the wash cycle to the drain cycle. You can probably order a new one from Kenmore for pretty cheap.

**** out the water with a wet vacuum machine. Remove the sump guard and check with you fingers for any obstacles that prevent the draining. **** out the water and anything else from there. Put the guards back.
HI.This is a drain issue. check the following areas for faults.
1. Air gap / Drain hoses If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.
If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.
Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.
Ok, if the hoses are ok and not clogged, this will confirm a major issue that concerns the drain assembly or pump impeller.
I have a very similar dishwasher, with a very similar problem. I fixed it by removing debris from the water evacuator pump located towards the front of the bottom of the machine (the last motor before the drain hose. In my case, grape stems had clogged it up. Once emptied, it purrs once again. NOTE: don't disassemble the motor, just flush it out, there is an o-ring gasket that is a bear to re-install.
Most dishwashers have a "check valve" that prevents water from flowing backward from the sink drain into the dishwasher. This valve is under the unit and has a hose that leads to the sink drain spur attached to it. Remove the lower front panel and look for a tube about 1" in diameter with a hose clamp around it. You may also need a shallow pan to catch any remaining water in the dishwasher if you remove the clamp and hose. The assembly should unsrew - be careful and don't get too rough.. Don't lose the "O" ring seal on the check valve assembly.
Some check valves can be disassembled and cleaned. Other can't.
Lack of draining can also be caused by debris in the bottom of the unit that is plugging the drain or it can also be a worn drain slinger.
I had a similar issue, I removed the lower spray arm (had to hold center plastic tab with pliers and then unscrewed and lifted up the arm). Then I removed the cover with the screen filter(4 screws) and then removed the top half of the stainless chopper housing (1 screw). Found that things like cherry pits, elastic bands, bread plastic ties had blocked the water inlet to the chopper and the area around the chopper blade. Cleaned it all up, reassembled and machine works great! Mine was so blocked that I was hardly getting any water pressure to the upper rack.
fatubu, are you sure you have the correct model number, Im not finding anything on the posted model. They had an issue on models close to this that had an issue with a twisted or missing seal in the pump assy. causing water to fill the pressure switch hose. The dishwasher would drain water after the fill. The fix was to replace the pump and motor assy. Catriver..post back.
