Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue to get is diagnosed correct.

Does the motor run when it is draining and have you check the drain line from the dishwasher to the siphon gap or drain trap for any blockages?

Ok you need to remove the drawer from the unit and remove the drain line and check it for an internal blockage where the hose connects to the drain sump.
