when the dishwasher stops working there is motivation to repair. no one wants to hand wash the dishes. i see there is a similar question with an expert post that may help with a diagnosis while you wait for the expert to review this model. i attached the link below. if you do wish to schedule a service technician to diagnose and make repairs an option is the sears home services in the second link below.

from the description you give i suspect the problem is with the main circulation motor.
the fact the dishwasher will fill and drain means the door switches and thermal fuse are okay.
the circulation motor has two wires, red/black and blue, going to it. check the connections are okay. most likely the connector came loose during the move/installation and is causing this problem.
from the 2 wire connector the motor can be ohmed for resistance if a meter is available and you're comfortable using it.
check for the loose connection first and then let me know how it goes. you can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.
