It sounds like you have connected your dishwasher to a garbage disposal.
Check to see that the drain hose runs through a hole in the bottom/back of your cabinet, then up to the top of the cabinet, then is connected to the drain on the garbage disposal. (The reason that you run your drain up to the top of the cabinet is: This is called an air gap, and helps keep a little water in the drain line, which will prevent sewer gases from entering your dishwasher.)
This should help you. If not please attach more info.

Has this Dishwasher ever drained at all? In installations the need to have a drain line attached to a disposal system is top on the list, how ever some times the connection is made but a small plug in the disposal on the inside of the wall of the grinding chamber has to be knocked out to allow for proper draining of the dishwasher water.
