Question about Dishwashers
Hi, there are 2 pumps on a dishwasher, it sounds like the drain pump on your unit is not working, it may need to be replaced. If it is in warranty, then contact the manufacturer, if not contact a local appliance repair company or you can try disassembling the unit to get to it yourself. In the mean time you can use a wet/dry vac to get the remaining water out of the unit.
Another thing you could try first is buy some "Draino Gel" and place some of the "Draino Gel" (a good amount) in the bottom of the dishwasher. Leave it in the machine for about 30 minutes then run the dishwasher through 2 complete cycles in case somewhere further down the drain you have a clog. Let me know if you have any further questions on this.

Your dishwasher drains into the garbage disposal. It you tried to use a plunger to clear your clogged sink or run the disposal with to much junk in it you may have force debris into the dishwasher drain hose. With both the dishwasher and garbage disposal disconnect from power disconnect the dishwasher drain hose from the garbage disposal. This is usually about a one inch black hose. Clear out any debris in the hose and inlet nipple on the garbage disposal. If debris is compacted far down the hose it will need to be disconnected from the dishwasher end and remove to clear the blockage.
