To determine what is wrong start a cycle then push cancel/drain. Listen at the front lower kick panel. If you hear a buzz or hum that is the drain motor. If you do not hear the drain motor running then the problem is the motor itself. I have put a picture at the bottom of this showing the drain motor as 17, it hooks up right up front and a bit to the right side just behind that bottom toe panel.
If you do hear that motor running when you push cancel drain then the issue is somewhere between that drain pump and the sink where the dishwasher drains into. If you had a garbage disposer hooked up recently it could be the knock out plug for that is still there. What I would suggest is take the drain hose off at the air gap that you just installed and put the hose into a bucket, see if the dishwasher drains into that if it does then the problem is between the air gap and sink, if not then move back toward the dishwasher until you get to the point where you drain.

If the water inlet
valve is fine and it fills with water then the issue seems to be with the float
switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found
inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills the dishwasher
lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for
the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby
shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may
interfere with dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use voltmeter to
test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and
touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either
zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down
on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If
the switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for
