Thanks for using Just Answer. My name is Sean.
Do you happen to have a air gap that is about 2 inch tall on your sink?
If you do have a air gap it could be clogged and not allowing your dishwasher to drain properly. It is a easy fix.
If you look under your sink you should see a white drain hose that is coming from your dishwasher, Where does that hose hook up to under the sink?
Can you hear a pump running when you put it into drain?
Will you please give me the full model number that is on the dishwasher? You will find it when you open the door. It will ether be on the side of the door or on the cabinet where the door closes.
Never mind on the model number. KDS-16 is the model number you gave. Sorry don't see many model numbers that short now days most are longer now days. This is a oldie but a goodie.
This unit don't have a drain pump it only has a drain solenoid. Do you happen to have a electrical multi meter?
You are going to need to remove the bottom kick plate off, Where we can get to the solenoid.
Here is a attachment what the part we are looking for. The old one might not look just like this one.
Unplug the dishwasher or turn the power off. When you get to the solenoid unplug the wires going to the solenoid and test for continuity at the solenoid. Let me know what you find.
