You gave me the courage to tackle this maybe-clogged dishwasher:
Here's a pic, taken just now, with the "kick plate" removed:
Are you suggesting I can remove that blue "solonoid" on the left side with
the brass pipe in it and that might be what's probably clogged?
I might first think about using a good shop vac and start sucking at the feed
from the water heater or main entrance. open all taps, and of course close
main valve. I think the line would have to reseparated at the tank. The
dishwasher fill would have to be activated to open valve.

Hi Only Just,
Another great confidence booster!
Given that wonderful suggestion, I snapped some more pics, just now, of
under the sink where the dishwasher water seems to be coming from instead
of looking under the "kickplate" where the dangerous-looking wires are.
It looks like a wire and two hoses come out of the dishwasher:
The white hose seems to go to the garbage disposal
The steel hose seems to come from the (badly corroded) hot water input:
Something, I'm not sure why there are three hoses, goes into the sink:
Does something here look like what you are describing might be clogged?

Don't bother replacing the WH drain now. Fix the clogged dishwasher
Replace that factory drain valve in six months when you flush the WH
for your first maintenance interval.
As for that clogged dishwasher, you'll likely have to break the bricks
bricking it in in order to get to the innards.
Good luck. Ask questions. Take advice with a grain of salt.
And post back with your results!
