Kenmore dishwasher not draining

I have a Kenmore dishwasher (model: 15705891) that will not drain. I know absolutely nothing of household appliances but decided to take off the drain hose and see what would happen. I ran another cycle and the dishwasher started draining into a bowl fine. The hose doesnt appear to be clogged either as I was able to spray water through. Is it possibly a pump that is gone out ? I would have thought it wouldnt drain at all without a pump working though..but what do I know...Thank you in advance for any advice!

Welcome to the forums.

Do you have the dishwasher connected to a garbage disposer or directly to the drain ?

If it drains fine not connected then possibly where it's connected to is plugged.

When you dishwasher is supposed to be draining do you hear the pump running ?
There is a check valve in your drain line that could be causing your problem.

In the links is a video that shows you how to remove the check valve and replace it. At that point you can check it for clogs.
