Once you pass your Qual, download the dissertation template! Fill in some basic info (name, major, committee members' names, etc.), and add to your dissertation while you work on your research. After all, it's easier to write and cite as you go than to do it months/years later when that stuff isn't fresh in your mind.
Steps to your goal:
This is an unofficial guide. Please see Preparing & Filing Your Thesis or Dissertation for the official set of instructions.
In order to graduate, you need to meet with the Student Affairs Officer in Graduate Studies for the Mathematics / Applied Mathematics Department (click on the "People" tab). Email this person several weeks in advance to make an appointment and get a list of what you need to take care of. See the filing dates calendar on the Preparing & Filing Your Thesis or Dissertation page to find out the date by which you need to meet with the Office of Graduate Studies (OGS).
You need to submit your dissertation electronically at least 2 business days before your meeting with OGS so that they can approve it. They're not going to read it, they're just going to make sure it conforms to the formatting specifications. See the Preparing & Filing Your Thesis or Dissertation page for more info on submitting your dissertation electronically. If some formatting changes are required, the Student Affairs Officer will email you and you'll resubmit it after making the necessary changes. Once your dissertation is approved, it can no longer be changed.
