Check your air gap on your drain. It should be located on or around your sink. Sometimes food and other trash will stop it up and will not let your dish washer drain. The cap should unscrew off .Good Luck.

There is a solenoid that keeps the water in the washer. It is either faulty or there is something preventing it from closing completely. If there is no power applied to the washer, does it then hold water?

1.) Check the float switch for continuity
2.) check for a service tech sheet either inside of the toe panel (lower front panel)
or somewhere inside of the bottom or on the side of the unit.
3.)Trace the valve power back to the timer/control
4.) Check for power from control to water valve.
I bet it is the float switch
here is a video for the water valve and float switch click on the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zv22rpcthy4
Please post results for float switch and if you found the service tech sheet.
I will continue to look for service manaul and or wiring diagram.

Check float to insure that it is free to move, it sounds like the dishwasher is over filling. That is assumed that you have not changed the type or amount of detergent being used.Also there is a probability that the drain inside the machine could be plugged. Also check the latch and the rubber gasket/seal around the door.
Also it could be the water solenoid is faulty. The valve is staying open. In back of the lower front panel near the front you'll see copper tubing going into a blue or green plastic solenoid with two wires going to it. This is the water solenoid. Inside is a steel slug that moves to open the water feed. Yours is stuck open. So guess it's time for a new valve.
Dishwashers use an inverted cup float to measure the water level in the tub.
The tub has a tube extending up from the bottom that serves as a standpipe. The inverted cup has a rod that goes down through that tube and rests on a cam from the water level micro-switch. As water enters the tub air is trapped inside the inverted cup and the cup floats upwards as the water rises. In turn the rod rises and allows the cam on the micro switch to rise also. When the tub reaches its preset limit the float has raised high enough to allow the micro switch to open, which in turn closes the solenoid water valve turning the water off.
Often the shaft of the float switch or the inside of the standpipe tub gets coated with soap scum or cooking oil and making it gummy. This then sticks the float down so it cannot rise to signal when the tub is full.
Lift the float upwards, it is loose and will lift right out. Clean the inside of the cup, the rod which extends downward and the inside of the standpipe tube. Replace the cup and check the function. The cleaning should resolve your problem. If not the problem is either a defective micro switch or solenoid valve.
