I've had my frigidaire dishwasher for 1 year and 8 days. This morning, after 25 minutes of washing, I saw water all over my kitchen floor with soap bubbles and all. I tried to get the water drained in the bottom and restarted the entire cycle. Again, it filled up so high that about 20 minutes, it started overflowing all over my floor. Help!

Con you check to see if the insulation over the top and sides of the dishwasher was touching the floor and wicked up enough water to get wet? That would reduce the sound dampening characteristics. It is also possible that the hose being shaken off was caused by an issued with something jamming the pump; check the drain grates to see if there is anything you can pull out.
What type of dishwasher do you have? Has your kitchen floor flooded? If it
has. The tray under dish washer isn't water tight. Moisture creates some unusual
problems. Some of newer dish washer the there control panel under the top of
door this also create problem especially if the switches are on the top of the
door. Another moisture problem. I have repaired a new Electrolux dish was
three times in less than 6 months. The floor would flood from the Maytag side
load washing machine. The Madam of the house didn't tell me that the washing
machine flooded the kitchen floor. No window in the door and sometime fill
water solenoid would stick and fill the tube. When they open washing machine
door, 12 gallons of water would spill. So I fix both of them. GB...stewbison
Do you have hard water? Many states have passed laws that outlawed
phosphate as an ingredient in dishwasher detergent. If you have hard
water, the detergents don't work very well anymore. The residue is
probably hard water deposits (calcium and magnesium). Not harmful but
it looks awful on your dishes. There are some new products that were
designed to solve this exact problem. They are inexpensive and
effective. Can't say the name or I'll get banned (again). Internet
search will uncover it.
New Whirlpool Dishwashers will NOT accept the same "volume" of water that was desired by the same products of 25 years ago. Therefore the old 3/8" ID copper supply is too large and will overflow the tub filler/aireator (out the air vent holes). I just installed a new dishwasher supply kit consisting of a new 3/8" OD stainless braded hose with an ID of about 1/4". This delivers less volume than that recommended (in the installation manual) and therfore does restrict the flow a bit. However, the flowrate is adequate and the new dishwasher now works perfectly with no water overflow on the floor . . .
It depends on your water pressure. Mine runs a cycle in about 25 minutes, with 92 psi water pressure. Before changing all the pipes in my house, I had about 30 psi and it took about 45 minutes. The longer it takes to fill, the longer it takes to do a wash.
Most water supply lines are attached to the hot water supply under the kitchen sink. If not it may be accessible from the basement somewhere under where the dishwasher is located.
Regarding the issue with the dishwasher, the inlet water valve is no longer closing because of the limescale that has built up inside. That is why it fills on it's own even when it's off. Instead of replacing the dishwasher you could just replace the inlet water valve if you want to get a few more years out of it.

by the sounds of it.i think the water inlet valve that lets water into the machine has gone faulty leaving water slowly seep into the machine, you could either replace this valve..or a cheaper solution if you can access the rear of the machine most water supplies would have a small value installed on the incomming supply,you could simply turn off the water till the next time u need to use it.
