Check the drain line underneath the sink. It should be suspended just below the counter top. If it is too low,water from the sink will back fill into the dishwasher. If the drain is OK,then the dishwasher water valve is defective.
Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.
Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks
Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

I have the same problem. Under the unit is a white plastic tray. If that is filled with too much water the float will not let water in. As a temporary solution I found if I soak up the water with a towel it will then let water in.
I don't however know why I keep getting so much water in the tray. I posted a question about it but have not solved it yet.

Bosch has a safety float switch under the dishwasher basin. If water leaks into this area, the float rises and turns on the drain pump to clear out the water in the dishwasher. Hope I explained that ok :) Anyways, usually a leak somewhere causes this and unless the leak is fixed and water is removed or evaporates, the dishwasher will remain in the drain cycle.
