Unscrew this check valve from the motor where the drain hose attaches and take it out to see if it's plugged with gookus. Run water through it to be sure: http://www.repaircli...lve/675238/2844

If it does drain, just so slow you have to press the cancel button 5 times thats got to be one of two things. The most common by far is something is restricting the drain line somewhere. If thats not it you may have an impeller in the drain pump that has been damaged. Like if a piece of glass was in there and wore down or broke off some of the vanes.
If the drain hose connects to an air gap on top of the sink take that apart and look for something blocking the water flow. Like a big ball of gunk or anything else that could have made its way through the drain line. If its clean, disconnect the drain hose from the air gap and see if the dishwasher will drain in to a bucket. You may have something floating around in the drain hose thats too big to fit through the air gap so by draining it in to a bucket that should clear the object out if there is something in there. If it connects right to the disposer of sink drain disconnect the hose there and make sure nothing there is blocking it. Its very common for the connection on the disposer to plug up with disposer junk.
Does this have the factory plastic drain hose on it or is it connected to a rubber hose? Those rubber hoses will kink over time and stop the water flow.

As Mike said, you most likely kinked the drain line when you pulled it out and then reinstalled the dishwasher.
We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.
