SOURCE: leaking dishwasher
If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.
The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:
1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers
Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.
Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.
The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

There are only 2 places the DW can get water from. One is the drain line and the other is the supply line. We need to eliminate one to diagnose the problem, OK?
The first picture is a drain hose gone wrong...
Inspect your drain hose. If it looks like the pic above, you gotta fix that. Even IF that's not the problem right now... it will be in the future (and MAY be contributing to the problem now). You'll need to loosen the clamp, remove the drain hose from its' fitting, pull as much slack as you can get from the DW and then make a "loop" in it before reconnecting it. Like this...
The DW drain loop should be as high as the highest part of the sink...
I know that you have done a lot of experimenting in an attempt to figure this out. Just make sure that the drain hose is installed properly to eliminate it as the cause of the flood issue.
After you've made sure about the drain hose, leave the DW alone overnight. If you see water in the tub the next morning, you definitely have a failed valve on your DW. Since it's new (less than a year?) the valve is under warranty and will be replaced at no charge.
Hope this helps. If it's out of warranty let me know and I'll do the part look up for you and provide detailed replacement instructions, OK?

no their is no fuse. sound to me like your motor is not working, however
the pump should still drain out.push cancel only and unit should drain if it does then id say motor bad. you can try to take apart and check motor blade ive seen toothpics, food , other objects hold motor impeller from turning making it seem like its the motor but actually its just stuck..remove btm wash arm and filter cover thentake two or 3 small screws from a plastic cover covering motor impeller, look to see if anything is in their if so remove. warning if you see a white ball down their leave it alone reinstall and see what happens. hope this helps.
