I would not recomment putting chemicals in the dishwasher. There is usually some kind of filter in the bottomt at you can easily take out and clean. It's common to have parts of labels and plastic clog this up.
Try removing and cleaning this first. It may also be reached from a separate hatch in the fronc of your dishwasher, depending on the make and model. Just make sure it's securly back in place before you start it afterwards, or you may flood your kitchen.
You may also try to disconnect the hose and blow through it to see if you may be able to blow back any objects stuck there.
If none of this helps your problem may be in the pump, and then it's usually a job for professionals.

My model is actually a SHX46 but I was able to piece together some advice off of this site. This is what I did. I removed the toe plate and then I soaked up all the water that I could out of the white pan at the bottom. Then I unhooked the water supply line so that I could pull the dishwasher out. Once I got it out, I tipped it forward to drain out the rest of the water. I then unhooked the drain line that was connected to the disposal and cleaned it out with a "Snake line" I then hooked everything back up and it worked. Thanks so much for this website, I know it saved me a ton of $$$$$$$$$.

SOURCE: water leaking onto the floor
1. If the water is going onto the floor during the drain cycle there is either a hole in the hose or it is completely loose from the DW or a hole in the drain assembly under the sink but if that were the case you would have water under the sink also.
2. If it during the wash or rinse cycle then the seals are not sealing (door is not closed all the way or seals are bad) or the float at the right front of the DW is stuck allowing the DW to overfill with water.(you need to open the door and pull the float up and out as you do so push it up and down and listen for a clicking sound.(which indicates it is making contact with the fill solenoid)..if you here the clicking and the float is full of gunk (old soap and such) clean it out and replace it and run it through a cycle and monitor the DW to see if the fill cycle shuts off before the water reaches the overflow point.
3. the only other option is a possible rust through on the DW and or the drain and motor mount in the center of the DW where the food particles and water are drained...is loose and leaking or rusted through...(how old is the DW).
4. Also check to see there are no large particles around the door seal to prevent complete closure and sealing of the door seal. As well as the door latching properly (when closed can the door be moved or pulled open)?
I hope this helps and let me know if not Please relay model number, age and other specifics you feel are pertinent...thank you and please rate me if this helped...thanks again ...the Fang

Usually the sink connection is not an overflow, it is the main drain from the dishwasher. It is more likely your s-bend is blocked under the sink- try putting a bucket under it and unscrewing the u-shaped piece and cleaning out (remember don't wash it in that sink while the pipe is off)

remove the entire drain hose from the air gap and be sure it is clear, also the dishwasher drain should be going to your disposal, if you chose to use the air gap it should be connected from d/w to air gap then to disposal, todays dishwashers dont need an air gap.
