Dishwasher not draining


I have a barely 6 month old GE dishwasher (model GDT605PMMES). I started noticing a few inches of water left over after the cycle was finished. After investigating some, I noticed that there was a humming/buzzing sound during each draining phase of the wash cycle. I've made a video here so you can hear the sound. Any suggestions?

Thanks so much for any help!

First thing to do is make sure the grate in the bottom of the dishwasher is not blocked somehow. An errant piece of plastic wrap or broken glass in the right place can block the water exit.

"Broken glass" seems like an out-there cause but it's possible so please probe gently.
