Normally the dishwasher is held by screws at the top corners that go through brackets into the worktop.

On some, there were blanking plugs in the side wall of the door recess and you took the blanking caps out to take the screws there out.
However, if the machine is going up and down, then it's unlikely that any of the screws are still in.

Have you raised the rear leg(s)?

If not, you need to raise them so the rear of the dishwasher drops down and clears the worktop.
Once clear at the front and rear (and assuming there's no pipes or cables under the dishwasher) it should simply pull out from it's location.

Check the rear legs, let me know what you find.
