Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
Hi and welcome to Fixya,
I'd suggest you are correct in your suspicsion of the disposer being a likely problem.
Start by checking the drain spout of the disposer where you connected the drain hose from the dishwasher and make sure you knocked out the plug in the spout.
**Turn off the power or unplug the disposer/garberator before performing any service**
If the plug is not punched out, with the aid of a long screw driver and a hammer, or a firm smack with the palm of your hand you should be able to knock out the plug.
Now reach in the disposer and remove the plug you`ve just knocked out, reconnect the drain hose for your dishwasher and you should be good to go.
Let me know what you find and how it goes.

Don't overfill your washer with too many items!! We had a party and we put too many dishes and plastic ware in the dishwasher. The dishwasher ran forever and never drained. When we removed the items, the dishwasher was able to complete its cycle.

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn
