9. If you do need somebody, you can probably get a repair person
from the shop you bought it from instead of a plumber. Probably cheaper. Also make sure 1. the sink drain is clear and draining well, 2. the garbage disposal is working and not clogged, 3. the hose is properly installed (probably not a problem since it used to work).

In fact, when the dishwasher is draining, you should be able to see the water running at a pretty fair clip from the side (near the top) of the garbage disposal. Just use a wooden spoon or something to bend the rubber strainer gasket thing-y wide enough so that you can look in there. A flashlight might be necessary.

WARNING, don't put your fingers into the garbage disposer--they could get chopped to bits and the water is going to be pretty hot.
