SOURCE: Hotpoint dishwasher not emptying
Possibly a kink in the pump out hose. That was my problem, thought it was pump, and the kink was the first thing the repair man looked for and found. Part available in any hardward 10' dishwasher hose.

I see you do not give a make and model so a few possibilties here .Chances are that something has gotton stuck in the drain pump stopping the impellar from turning I suggest you get a technition in to look unless you are technical yourself,worst case being the drain pump itself is broken in wich case replace it (NB If your machine has a timer the timer may also be fualty)

HI, usually, if the dishwasher dose not drain properly, it will be the fault of a defective or, malfunctioning pump. i will list several problem areas to check. Inspect each area properly and, replace any component that is faulty or fouled.
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.
2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.
Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.
4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.
Replace the motor if defective.
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

I have had this problem a few times. For me all I had to do was unscrew the vent/overshow knob on the sink and clean out the vent. Because the vent is clogged, it does not allow the water to flow out. Clean out the debri and screw the vent cap back on- should work fine.
