Sounds like a shorted door switch. You may be confusing the door latch with the electrical door switch. The latch is the handle lever that you move to lock the door. The electrical switches you normally can't see without taking the door apart or in some cases they are mounted to the center top of the tub under the counter. As the door latches--the switches should close to run the dishwasher. It sounds like in your case it is defective and shorting to ground.
I have spent most of the afternoon looking for the float etc. In frustration I upended the machine to look for the inlet hose point, water started pouring out so I put the machine back in the upright position. Now it's filling with water and working again. Maybe there was something in the hose which became free with upending it. Not sure, but worth a try, it worked for me!
Check out the water inlet solenoid valve if this is clicking then it is probably the water level pressure switch which appears to be controling the flow of water mechanicaly dependent on whether the water is high enough in the machine and therefore giving enough pressure to close the switch .This may be stuck closed.
