Hi, thanks for using JustAnswer.com. First, lets start with the basics. Do you hear the pump turn on when you select "Cancel/Drain" on the control? If you do, there has to be a restriction of some kind in the drain system. Does the unit drain into a garbage disposal? If so, has it been replaced recently and was the plug removed? If the unit drains into an air gap at the top of the sink, have you looked to be sure the air gap is not plugged? Let me know how your drain hose is installed in relation to your home plumbing, ie. to dosposal, sink tailpiece, air gap, etc.
Okay, do you hear the drain pump activate when you select the cancel drain button?
Too late now to start to disassemble. How do I get back to you tomorrow? Also, don't know if this matters but it seems like the wash cyle is going longer now.

Number 6 and number 8 is going to be where this is going to be plugged. You will need to remove the lower spray arm by turning the center nut clockwise and pulling it out. Remove the feed cap (number 2 in the lower picture) by lifting small tab and turning it clockwise as well. Once removed, you will see four T-15 Torx screws, remove them and lift the accumulator (filter) out and set it aside. You will then have access to the number 6 piece. Remove the T-10 Torx screw and see if there is "gunk" plugging that area and the chopper (number 8 in the upper picture). Clean it all out and reassemble, and you should be good to go. If this area is all clean, let me know and we will go to the drain pump but the pump usually is not the source of obstruction.
