I had the same problem. The dishwasher would run, and at theend of the cycle there was water still inside the machine. I'm not an applianceexpert, but I just went through some troubleshooting.
Turn the power off, pull the unit out, and disconnect all the hoses. Get some towels because water will start leaking out of the bottom. In my case, I removed all the hoses, including the one that connected to the disposal. I blew through the ends of each hose, and right away I found one hose that was obstructed .This stuff builds up over time, almost like someone's artery, and once clogged, your best bet is to throw it out, and get a new hose. Its a cheap solution, and is usually the cause.
Your problem sounds identical to mine...so see if my video helps, cause I've gotten feedback from others who found it useful.

Very helpful to me also, but I cannot get the plastic liner out of the sump hole, even with squeezing it and pulling with hands and prying with screwdriver. My goal is to get the flat metal screen off the floor of the dishwasher in order to clean the gunk off of it, but the sump liner has a lip that holds down the screen around it.

I have a GE PDW 7880J10SS dish washer. I cannot get the insert off the sump. I tried squeezing from wider sides of the insert, but cannot get it off even after putting a lot of force. Is there something that needs to be undone?

I have a slightly different model, GE PDW 7880G00SS I think. I also had the water clogging issue and could not remove the sump. However you dont really need to remove it. I took a coat hanger and poked a little into the hole to the left of the sump. Then I put back everything and it drain perfectly.

maybe this helps.

But thansk to this post I was able to save 300 bucks for removing a simple clog in the DW.
