SOURCE: Leaking dishwasher
Are you washing cereal bowls or mixing bowls on the bottom rack? If so, are you placing them in front? Sudden leaks that form huge puddles can often be attributed to improper loading of the dishwasher. Most dishwashers don't have a seal across the tub front. The door closes over it and does a pretty good job of deflecting water back inside the wash cavity. However, if you place bowls in the front on the bottom rack rack they can divert the water right over the tub lip and onto the floor. This is usually the culprit that causes most leaks in dishwashers. Now, if you don't think you have a loading problem, remove the kick panel on the bottom of the dishwasher and check the drain line and pump housing for leaks. Check the door gasket for tears or cracks. Lastly, feel inside the bottom of the door with your hand. You should be able to feel the door insulation. If it is wet, then the problem could be a leak around your soap or rinse-aid dispenser. Depending on the model, some dispensers are mounted to the door with a gasket behind it. Sometimes this gasket can form leaks. I hope this helps.

The fill switch may be contaminated with soap or debris that makes it heavier and makes it float lower in the water which means more water is required to trip it. Try moving it manually and see if it is hard to move at the top of its travel.

Your drying vent tube is probably leaking inside the door panel. Remove the outer front panel and on the top left side, there is long white plastic tube connected to the dryer fan assembly. In that connection is where the problem is. You will need to disassemble the fan from the door, disconnect the tube from the fan, clean out the water and debris and use silicone when reassembling the tube to the fan.

You might want to check the salt and rinse levels on your dishwasher.
Ours was doing the exact same thing and we refilled the dishwasher salt and it worked again. Unscrew the plastic thing on the bottom of the dishwasher and fill it up with about 1 kilo of dishwasher salt, water will flow out when you do this and you can put at least 2 kilos in.
Hope that helps xxx

check the safety thermostat which is located at the bottom of the dishwasher. you have to remove the bottom plate,and then you will find easily the thermostat-KSD201/PF 90. you have to reset this probably.there is a red wax dot in the middle this thermostat, so remove it and use a needle to press a very small button inside. the heating element is working well probably.you can measure resistance on it to be sure.
