SOURCE: over-level water error
I finally found the cause of my "over-level water error", and I fixed it. In my case it was a gummed-up water level float chamber (part #13 in the diagram here). Once I pulled it out, cleaned it, and put it all back together the dishwasher is running fine. What follows are the symptoms I experienced, and some pictures of what I saw and did to fix it.
Symptoms: After nearly 2 years of owning a DMT400RHS, dishes began to progressively come out with sediment on them. They were not being cleaned nearly as well as previously. This symptom seemed to start fairly suddenly and remain for about 2 months. Then, the dishwasher began to occasionally error out, first with "Drain Error" or "Over-level water error", then later consistently with the "Over-level water error":
For awhile we could just restart the dishwasher and it would do a load. Later, however, no matter how many times we restarted, unplugged, etc. it would not continue. Of note, there was never actually a drain problem, as it would always, well, drain.
The error was never triggered during the initial "drain phase". It was always triggered after that phase, when it was filling the tub with water, specifically after it had been filling for awhile. Eventually, we figured there must be a float someplace that was all gummed up and not moving up with the water level.
Well, here's what I found when I finally pulled the entire dishwasher out and laid it down on its side (facing the door, tip it over to your right):
Inside that little box with all the sediment and glop is a wing-shaped float that couldn't move due to the glop. I simply held the whole plastic thing under the sink faucet to rinse it out. I had to take off the tub pan in order to pull off the drain hose that's attached to the back of this chamber. After rinsing it out, I put it back in and the dishwasher seems to be running fine:
