First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue returns after its cleaned then try to reset the dishwasher control by pressing the HEATED DRY button and hold it for 15 seconds, if its still not resolved then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

This issue, PRESUMING that your machine allows un-rinsed dishes, may be a pinched or restricted DRAIN system. Think in terms of water exchange..... And you cannot just hook up to a garbage disposer, they have a plug in the passageway....

Make sure the water supply line is connected and isn't kinked. If you are using a saddle valve, make sure it is properly installed.

A common problem is if the drain hose is connected to a new garbage grinder, they have failed to punch out the plug on the grinder where the hose attaches.
