sorry , had to step out and drop my van off at the shop, ok I believe this is your problem,

Part 821081its called the piston and nut assembly, you need to remove the screen that runs along the back of the dish washer inside and under it you will find this, this unscrews counterclockwise and comes out. if you push the pluger in and the rubber doesnt seal it needs to be replaced. this stops the water from re entering the machine in drain cycle, you can get this @ for around $16.00 , thanks Bryan
