Question flooded dishwasher

I have a dishwasher (GE Nautilus) that now has a small pond at the bottom. I've checked and there appears to be no blockage of the drain. A couple of days ago there was a clog in the sink that was easily fixed. Has that clog moved down and is now messing with my dishwasher or is this something worse?

do you have a dishwasher airgap? If you have a proper installation water from a clogged sink cant get back to the dishwasher. If you just have a hose that goes under the sink straight to the dishwasher then that was probably the cause. If so, keep an eye on it and see if it happens again. It shouldn't, but you really should have that airgap.
