Check the fitting where the dishwasher hose connects to the drain. If it drains when disconnected, it is either kinking the hose when you put it back in, or the drain is plugged at the connection.
Water from the sink fills up the dish washer
I had a similar problem with a washing machine, until I replumbed my waste pipes. My Washing Machine waste pipe was attached to the down pipe just under the sink bowl. I found that the U bend trap was too high and the water level in the U-bend was at the same level as the Washing machine waste pipe was attached. So we has syphoning back into the washing machine. I moved the U bend trap down by 3 inches 7 cm, so now the water leaves the washing machine falls the 3 inches to the water level of the U bend. We now have no more syphoning back into the washing machine.

I have spent most of the afternoon looking for the float etc. In frustration I upended the machine to look for the inlet hose point, water started pouring out so I put the machine back in the upright position. Now it's filling with water and working again. Maybe there was something in the hose which became free with upending it. Not sure, but worth a try, it worked for me!
