Sorry for the delay in response.  Things have been hectic.  Been washing dishes the "old fashioned" way.  Everything works now.

 

Quick overview.

 

1. Wouldn't drain

2. Replaced drain pump

3. Still wouldn't drain

4. Pulled dishwasher out

5. Checked float switch/float, all good

6. Pushed back into place

7. Would now drain, but wouldn't fill (did before pulling it out)

8. Sat for about one month not working on project

9. Called repair service

10. Red float rod was stuck (happened when pushing back in place apparently)

11. Repair serviceman moved that back into place, and left.  No charge

12.  All works again!

 

Unless there was something that was stuck in the drain line that got loosened by moving the dishwasher out, I did nothing other than replace the drain pump (and put the original one back in too and it still drained)  I've ran several full loads and everything works great.

 

Thanks for everyone's assistance along the way!

 

One final question, where do these two pieces go back into place at?

10. Red float rod was stuck (happened when pushing back in place apparently)

Hmmm, where've I heard that before? Lets see....

Your punchlist, please respond explicitly to each:

 

- In front of this assembly should be the float assembly with a gray plunger and red piston.  Move the gray plunger up and down a few times to make sure it isn't stuck in the up (flooded) position.  

 

11. Repair serviceman moved that back into place, and left.  No charge

He probably lurks at these forums and read the solution right here! :dude:

I'll bet the drain hose was kinked where it went through  the wall. Been there done that.

Took me about 40 minutes to find this little rascal .DSCF2017_zpsd120dd0e.jpg.....Pinched drain line..........Connection was to the right of the wall, behind the unit, pulled D/W out a bit, pushed drain/cancel and full flow of drain water..........
