When I started the dishwasher last night, after a few minutes I noticed a good bit of water leaking on the floor. I stopped it, drained it, and have not used it again yet. Any ideas?

It could be:
a dirty door seal
a clogged pipe on the pressure sensor causing it to overfill
a genuine leaking hose

Much depends on where it is leaking from. The door seals can be cleaned with a detergent laden cloth, hard grime removed with a plastic scouring pad or a blunt knife (with care)
A clogged sensor pipe needs to be removed and cleaned out - access will most likely be from beneath. While you are there you can check the hoses for leaks too!

As a starting point I would put a kettle or two of very hot water and a generous dose of detergent into the machine and try to let it clean itself. While it is doing that try to spot where the leak is. There may not be one if it was overfilling.

I hope this helps.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

The pump seal may be the problem. There are a number of places on the net where you can get step by steps and the the parts to replace the seal. Some recommend just getting a new motor pump housing which is 150. I just purchased the impeller assembly (it has all you need) and it cost $25 with shipping. Only thing is I did not realize I also had a leak in the solenoid stem valve. Let me know if you need the link I was talking about.

Neff dishwasher continually draining

Update to my problems. It is now working. I removed the T20 tork screw housing the pump cover which is situated underneath the filter. I used a sponge and siringe to remove all water. And started the dishwasher a few times to spin the pump and flickout any excess water. I noticed some small bits of food which were removed and I cleaned all filters and put it back together. It didnt work staright away but the pump was not comong on as soon as the door was shut anymore. I did a reset and then selected a rinse programme and voila it worked! Tried a full wash cycle last night and it all seemed to be working fine......

Ultra Wash

Sounds like your not getting water to it. Turn on and let run for a few minutes then open door and check to see if you have water in it.
If not check to be sure water to it is turned on. Check float in front corner of dishwasher to see if moves freely up and down and that there is nothing underneath it. If these check ok you probably need a water valve.
