The water inlet valve is most likely bad and needs to be replaced, especially if it fills up over a long period of time. Easy to replace.

The water inlet valve is defective.Turn off the power and close the valve to the water supply line Remove the kick panel on the front of the dishwasher remove the supply line, the clamp to the supply hose, the electrical connectors, ans the screws holding the valve.

Hotpoint Built-In Dishwasher HDA3600DWWmy dish


there is an electronic solenoid near where the drainhose connects to the sump that changes the waterflow direction from recirculate(washing), to evacuate (draining). this is electronically controlled by the timer. you can test the power leads at the solenoid for voltage when it sould be draining. if none then the timer is faulty. if there is voltage then the solenoid is faulty. if the solenoid is engageing, then the water diverter is faulty. if the water diverter is broken, replace the dishwasher.
overflowing is another problem of its own. the water level float/ sensor is not working and could be caked with detergent. work the float from the inside of the dishwasher, it should move freely. if so, then there is a switch connected to the float on the underside. test it with an ohmmeter. if bad replace it. if it is an electronically timed water level control then it could be a problem with the timer as well, but with hotpoint they are usually manual.

Bosch dishwasher fills with water after cycle is completed


Sounds like you need a new water inlet valve. It's not shutting off completely, so water slowly enters the machine even while it isn't running.

QuietPower 3, water seeps into unit,fills the base once per week.


I need more info but I would check the drain connection under the sink to make sure that it goes up after leaving drain , to keep the sink from draining into the dishwasher.

NO WATER


if an older machine, suspect the wiring loom where it turns at the bottom of the door. take outer door panel off and carefully examine the loom and pull each wire to make sure it is intact
