Check the siphon gap next to your sink faucet, all dishwasher drain lines either go to a siphon gap next to the faucet or the trap/disposal port. The siphon gap is that small dome sitting next to your faucet. You need to remove the cap on it and then there will be a center piece that pops out or is round and unscrews to get in the middle of the siphon gap. Check that and see if you have a partial blockage in the siphon gap. If you do not have a siphon gap follow the drain line to where it connects to under the sink and check the end port for partial blockages both in the drain hose and at the trap or disposal port where it connects to. See link below for siphon gap checking. If you do not find anything let me know!

I don't see a siphon gap next to my kitchen sink. Could it be in the dishwasher?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 7 months ago

No it would be under the sink, can you see where the white corrugated line goes from the dishwasher under the sink?

Does the dishwater drain through the bottom of the dishwasher tub or higher up. I see a filter-type gizmo on the side wall of the tub. Is that where water exits?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 7 months ago

Yes it should I would not know without seeing what you are seeing so if you want to upload some pics that may help.
