Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.
Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. you should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.
Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).
Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.
An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Welcome to FixYa.
Based on you description of the timer not advancing you`re on the right track when you said "Thought it might be the timer (control unit), but now am wondering if it could be the heating element or thermostat"
I suspect the thermostat isn't satisfied when heating the water, hence it get`s hung up trying to heat in the part`s of the cycle it`s called for.
It very well could be caused by a faulty flow switch, NTC or heater as well but not very likely.
The SHU 30** series Bosch dishwashers with a rotary dial timer have very few if any, issues with the actual timer or element but they do with the thermostat within the door panel.
If it ( the thermostat ) is not satisfied the water may heat but not be indicated via the thermostat, hence timer will not advance.
Here`s what you can try. If you have any hesitation or reluctance to service this yourself please call in an authorized B/S/H/ appliance technician.
**Turn off the breaker at the service panel before attempting any service suggested **
**NOTE** it can occur the thermostat can become loose and detach from the bracket which holds it in place, this too can manifest in the sysmptom of the timer not advancing.
Let me know how you make out and what you find.
Thank you for choosing FixYa and Good luck.
