SOURCE: Water filling does not stop
Water supply to the dishwasher is done through an electromagnet valve,loocated at the water pipe's enterance to the machine. A defect in the valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it, and the valve may leak and drip water into the tub.You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from the machine before doing it !!!!! and as well to close water main tap to the machine. In case cleaning doesn't help, you should replace the valve. Good luck !!

The problem sounds like a hard water situation....Do you have hard water?...does your coffee pot take a long time to make coffee (an older coffee pot) if so you may consider a small water softener attached to the water inlet line or a water filtration device...as hard water will do just that..leave spots on the glasses and silverware as well as colored dishes, that look like little circles of whitish dried chemical or powder stains. Yes you can run a full bottle of vinegar in your dishwasher but monitor the cycle closely so it does not go into the drain cycle right away...and let it run through an extended wash cycle 2-3 times....before it drains so as to be able to maximize the effect...and as the aforementioned suggestion states you can also run some CLR through the system...BUT be CERTAIN to run it through several wash and rinse cycles after doing so as the chemicals in CLR are not healthy...and do not leave any dishes in as you do so (whereas vinegar is just Acetic acid and organically based). Also it is impossible for any concrete to have gotten into the dishwasher from anything poured down the kitchen sink drain since there is a valve in the drain pump called a "backflow preventer" that prohibits anything from entering the dishwasher. Also you may want to take out all the trays and remove the screem in the bottom of the dishwasher that covers the engine and pump assembly where the sprayer arm sits atop of. After doing so ( three -6 screws) clean anyfood or residue found ther out with a shop vac or something and reassemble.
I hope this helps....if so please let me know by rating me ...thank you....The Fang

I did the same thing with my Maytag dishwasher, several times actually, before realizing I was putting blue dish soap in the rinse aid compartment which then wouldn't empty. Then my Maytag started making ominous noises during the rinse cycle (appliance guy said it was "cavitation" noise).
Appliance guy wanted to replace the whole detergent/rinse aid compartment but since he told me the noise was probably caused by the dish soap stuck in the rinse aid compartment, I decided to try to get rid of it first. Here is the method that worked for me; it took most of a day but saved me parts & labor:
1. Get some white vinegar--I used nearly a quart.
2. Fill the rinse aid compartment to brim with the vinegar (overfill) but don't put cap on
3. Raise the dishwasher door slowly until the vinegar drains into the lower part of the chamber (at least this is how my Maytag worked)
4. Agitate the contents as best you can by rapidly shaking the dishwasher door up & down.
5. I also used a small plastic medicine dropper jammed into small openings on each side of the rinse aid compartment to agitate the vinegar by squeezing air into them.
6. Drain the compartment by closing the dishwasher door (move it to full vertical)--vinegar will drain into the bottom of the dishwasher.
7. Repeat above steps a couple times, then fill again w/vinegar, put the cap on and let it stand for awhile. Then drain and repeat the whole routine several times.
8. Blue-colored vinegar will come out which is a good sign (or whatever color your dish soap was).
9. After awhile, I started pouring generous amts of very hot tap water thru the rinse aid compartment, alternating with white vinegar. (No reason you can't use hot vinegar also.)
10. Eventually, all the blue stuff came out & the see-thru levels of the rinse aid compartment were completely clear/empty.
11. Run the dishwasher (I decided to not put any rinse aid in). I got some overfoaming (from the washed out soap) the first time I ran it which I probably could have remedied by adding more vinegar & possibly salt, but the noises were gone!
I just ran the cleaned out dishwasher a 2nd time & it was back to its quiet self with no overfoaming.
Takes some patience but hey, beats a big repair bill!!
