You have a leak underneath and it is switching the anti flood switch on. Tip the dish washer back at a 45 deg angle, you will probably get water teak out the back, stand it back upright and try it. although it will probably work you will need to look underneath and find where the leak is coming from, my guess is its the wash pump and will cost around 100 pound for an engineer to repair.

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.
