Question about KitchenAid Dishwashers
You also might have a blockage in your air gap. Your air gap sits on your sink. You generally have the dishwasher drain line going into the air gap and then the other side of the air gap is a hose that attaches to the garbage disposal. If plastic items like stickers from vegetables and fruit go through your pump they can accumulate in the end of the air gap and cause no drain situations.If you do not have an air gap and your drain line is going directly into your garbage disposal then you need to make sure that the drain line sits higher than the dishwasher tub and has a loop in it. This will avoid any water backing back into the dishwasher when you are using your sink. You will need to take the cap off the air gap and look inside.

Usually when you have intermittent drainage the check valve in the drain hose is staying open allowing water back into the sump the fact that it is draining tells me the pump is rotating on a few occasions i have found a broken vane on the pump impeller you will usually hear a rattling sound I am assuming the drain line is routed correctly and it did drain correctly at one point.
