Question about Dishwashers
More than likely you have a blockage of your pipe or pump and this is causing it to back up, that or the water level control has gone faulty/jammed..
But you must get a service and repair manual for your exact make and model. and Google for it.

Thanks for using FixYa. You are right from what you have described the issue seems to be with the the pressure switch which is not shutting off the water and as a result the overfill is causing this issue. However, 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 accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
