Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17012 Built-in Dishwasher
Pull out your dishwasher
Lean backward about 45 degrees
A small amount of water is coming out
put your appliance at its original position
Now it will be working
(normally there is a floating valve under the bottom of your appliance which has been stacked and sends the signal of no water flow.)
In case that it does not function, then there is a hard work to clean the plastic "labyrinth" which normally is fixed at the left side panel where a floating valve has been stacked a cause of dirty material.

Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.
Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.
Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.
Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.
Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.
Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.
Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Check your air gap on your drain. It should be located on or around your sink. Sometimes food and other trash will stop it up and will not let your dish washer drain. The cap should unscrew off .Good Luck.

SOURCE: dishwasher will not drain water
Drain out is done via the pump out motor. Is the pump out motor working? Check by deternining with a AC voltmeter to see if supply voltage is across the terminals in pump out mode. If voltage is present and motor does not spin - the motor is open circuit and must be replaced. Remove the 2 clamps and the 2 electrical push on terminals with the MAINS voltage disconnected. Is the outlet pipe not blocked or obstructed ?

SOURCE: Dishwasher wont drain
There is a check valve that would prevent you from blowing back into the machine. I would recommend taking that hose and putting it into a bucket, turn the machine on and see if it drains, if so you have an issue with the house drain if not then take the hose off the machine. You can take the toe panel off with a couple of screws and the drain hose should be right up front. Have lots of towels ready to catch anything.
