How much water are we talking about? If its say less than 2-3 cups, It may be the way it is plumbed to drain. The drain line is back washing a little after everything is finished.

SOURCE: Not starting wash cycle
Typically this means that there has been a water leak of some sort and there is water in the lower base pan. This is the large white plastic base that the dishwasher sits on.
If you remove the toe kick and look back past the fill valve on the extreme left side of the dishwasher about 6 to 8 inches from the front you will see a red stick that goes straight up and down. This is a mechanical linkage that activates the drain feature. Be careful as there are live connections here.
This stick rests on a round piece of Styrofoam that acts as a float. If there is water present it will cause the stick to lift and the dishwasher will go into drain. The source of the leak will have to be isolated and corrected. Most likely it is the fill float assembly as referenced at the end of this post.
If the stick is not in the upright position then there is possibly an issue with the switch mechanism itself.
You will have to pull the dishwasher out from beneath the cabinet and remove the panel covering the left hand side. If it is a full panel then there are a couple of screws holding it on from the front through side trim as viewed when the door is open if it is a half panel then it can be removed by removing the large torx screw on the lower right as seen when facing the panel.
If there is a problem with the switch then the entire mechanism should be replaced.
Try the following link to a picture for reference. It is upside down as compared to the installed one:

There are a few possibities...
if you remove the lid and take the two t20 screw off the left side panel at the front you could check the pressure chamber and its hose are not blocked. Use the link and go to page 4, part 263834 and 361113. You can also remove 165263 (remove t20 screw via the sump after all filters are removeds) this will expose the pump impellor and you can check for any obstruction. There may be water in the base of the d/w (base as below the tank, not under the filter) this will activate the flood safety and give the scenario you have described, so check valve, hoses etc for leaks. You will have to manual clear the water from the base pan to deactivate the safety device. Sit the front of the d/w on a large tower and tip the whole unit forward, the base water will then come out. Whilst you have the side panel off, check that the red rod connected to the pressure chamber is not activating the microswitch. https://www.bosch-eshop.com/eshop(bD1lbiZjPTAwOQ==)/bosch/gb/prodp.htm?prod=SHU6802UC%2f12&ESHOPTYPE=S ps I appreciate the link is not for your model but the part placing should be the same.
I hope this helps, Good Luck.

SOURCE: Hello, i have a Siemens
It's possible that the Aqua-Stop flood protection system has been activated. I can probably help you, but I really need more information.
1. When you start a wash program, can you hear the pump running? - This will be a low pitch humming sound.
2. There is a dome/mushroom shaped plastic protrusion in the bottom of the washing compartment, located behind and between the salt compartment cap and the drain. Can you lift this up (be gentle) or is it already up and can only be pushed down?
Please post this information and I will try to assist you further.
