Many people realize the dishwasher connects to a little hose on the sink, it is called an air gap. However, many people wonder " The air gap is there to prevent the water from being siphoned out of the dishwasher. When water flows through the drain hose, it creates a suction on the water still in the dishwasher. The air gap, makes a hole for air to get in. That way, the water only leaves the dishwasher when it supposed to, when it is pumped out. Another benefit of an air gap is that if the drain hose becomes clogged, the dishwasher can still pump out the water. Instead of flowing through the hose, as it should, it can flow out the air gap and into the sink.
The dishwasher's drain line usually connects to an air gap mounted at the countertop level on the sink. The drain line continues from the air gap to either the garbage disposer or directly to the sink drain. If the drainage hose between the air gap and the drain is partially or completely blocked, wat
Check the following.
1. The drain hose has to be discharging at a high enough point to prevent water flowing back into the machine.
2. Make sure your drain hose is not twisted or kinked.
3 . Make sure your drain line is not blocked push a flexible hose down it to dislodge any fat/debris
4.If your drain line discharges into a shared drain with another appliance i.e. garbage disposal make sure it is not blocked.
5. You may have a blockage at the inlet to the pump which would slow down the pumping rate,
Since you mentioned the mushroom shaped float allowing the washer to empty this may be defective.

Hope this helps.
Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn't overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn't working properly, the drain pump isn't working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home's drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can't locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
The water backup is due to the low drain hose mounting position. Check the sink disposal position; the drain hose connection from the dishwasher to the disposal must be placed higher than the present drain hose passing the sink cabinet from your dishwasher.
I believe you, but did you check the nipple on the drain where the hose connects?
My sink drained OK, and when I took the dishwasher hose loose from the sinkdrain it drained great into a bucket.
When I stuck a screwdriver down where the drainhose connects to the sinkdrain, I felt all kinds of resistance. Its now cleaned out and the dishwasher drains again.
Hope this is your problem otherwise you may need a new pump.
There is a pass through the lower back side of the dishwasher that also has a restraining device to prevent drain hose from being pulled off of drain pump. After passing hose through this opening, connect hose to drain pump. Note: there is another restraining device built into lower plastic housing which has a finger notch to accept hose and keeps the drain hose engaged in to drain pump by not allowing hose to back out of drain pump/ hose interface.
