You may be getting sand in from the supply lines. Fill a clear glass container from the sink a few times and look at the bottom for sand particles. You may be getting sand from a pool filter? Remove the filter from the faucet head (it should unscrew) and look for sand particles in it. You may not be getting them in the kitchen sink if the dishwater inlets are below the sink as the particles may be sinking to the bottom of the pipes. You may need to put a filter in the dishwasher inlet. Try filling the dishwasher by hand with bottled water once and then see if the sand is still there. If so, it probably comes in through the water supply.

I have just had my dishwasher fixed by Hotpoint, as the heater was working and the dishwasher only stopped with the fast and delicate lights just before the drying process he replaced the main control board. This has solved the problem, I suspected the fault to be the thermistor as the heater seemed to be getting to hot but I had no idea where it was.
It turns out the thermistor is attached to the main control board and hangs down behind the front door that gives just a rough temperature level for the main control board.
As it's soldered directly onto the control board I would suggest replacing the whole control pcb for anyone with this fault unless you can find any spec details for the thermistor.

On our stainless tub kenmore elite diswasher model # 66515912001 (665.15912001), we removed the lower spray arm by turning the nut (try clockwise and counter clockwise) and lifting it off the lower unit.
Then, we turned the attached water port (that feeds the upper arm) to the right. It felt like it was going to break, but didn't !!!
Next, we removed the lower starfish looking thing on which the screen is attached by four torx head screws. Here we found much hardened yellow "stuff" that came off with hot water, a knife and shop vac. By my estimate, the screen was 60% blocked.
We also removed the upper tray so as to remove the upper arm. Banged it against the sink a few times to loosen the same caked on yellow "stuff" from inside it. Here we noticed many of the water outlet holes were completly clogged.
We also replaced our heating element because it was clearly flaking away. This required the dishwasher to have it's power shut off, water supply disconnected and pulled out. In the end, very easy to replace if you're mechanically inclined (I am very).
After a test run, my wife said: "haven't seen water dripping from the top tray in years..."
Total time investment for the above was about 3 - 4 hours.

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!
