Looked up my model # on PartSelect and noticed an area on the page of common problems. Clicked "dishwasher not draining" and was told that the drain solenoid fixed the problem 78% of the time. Pulled the dishwasher out and found the drain solenoid which was melted around the drain solenoid plunger. Replaced both parts and it worked fine.
