Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DP940PWP Free-standing Dishwasher
Out dishawasher of the make above will run and drain fine up until the second (rinse?) cycle and then doesn't drain. If, at the end of the cycle, you press the cancel/drain button it will drain the standing water left from that last cycle.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This sounds like a bad timer. The timer is what tells the pump to drain at specified times. If it gets a bad contact, that timed cycle won't happen.
PS: Do you know for sure that the drain is occurring in mid-cycle? If not, you may just have an obstruction in the drain and/or anti-siphon valve (where the hose connects under the dishwasher.

FYI, for anyone else with the same symptoms. I took mine apart and found that the seal on the motor shaft failed and over time corroded the motor shaft bearing causing it to failed. I ordered full motor assembly from the parts store.

Try cleaning out the air gap. The air gap is not part of the machine, and is located on your sink. If this becomes clogged, it may cause the machine to not drain properly. Also, I know you said you checked the drain hose and cleaned as far as the filter and chopper blade, but have you checked the lower filter? There is a filter located underneath the machine that should periodically be cleaned. To check this, you need to access the machine from underneath by removing the bottom vanity cover. Hope that one of these helps!
