the unit is going into drain mode. check your hose for leaks. when water leks in the base of the unit the float switch is activated and the unit will stay in drain mode until the water is removed. check float by removing side panel and look into bottom base for water.

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your post I understand you have a Bosch SHU3307UC dishwasher, correct ? Firther to this you.ve stated "slowly fills the bottom between cycles, even with little or no activity at the sink"
It sounds to me like the fill valve is at fault unfortunately. This is a very common problem for Bosch dishwashers of that era.
A faulty fill valve...sticking in the "open" position either due to the plunger in the coil getting stuck or sediment inside the valve body impeding it from closing correctly...Either way you're safer to change it with the history of these valves failing.
This is what to look for...
As long as your model is indeed a Bosch, this info below will be accurate.
Original part is # 425458. It usually retails for about $20 - $30USD at places such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclinic.com" to name a couple, if needed. They may be available at your local brick & mortar parts depot/vendors.
**Before attempting to repair the unit please turn off the power and the water supply to the dishwasher...safety first**
If you remove the lower kick plate/toe panel, you will see the inlet valve to your left...
Replacing it or to check for debris in the filter/screen at the inlet is pretty straight forward. Here`s how...
1) undo the water line. ( here you can visually inspect the screen in the valve...if nothing noted, you'll likely need to replace it as follows )
2) Remove the two #20 torx screws fastening it in place.
3) the feed tube to the machine at the back of the valve and swap it with the new one.
Once the new one is in or it's all clear you should be good to go.
Let me know if you need any further assistance. Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.
