Thanks - that makes sense - a few days ago my wife said that water was coming out of the dishwasher - she thinks the waste disposal was clogged so it filled and began overflowing when she drained the sink - I guess the water got into this tray and triped a level switch or something right?

Ours did the same....last week. Would not work for a few days...in the end i took the spinning rotor arms off that spray the water. The nozzles looked blocked ...used tootbrush to clear nozzles. Put arms back on and it is now working. Wife thinks we have had the problem before...(just going thru cycle) but it cleared itself.
Not impressed by the dishwasher but the oven & hob are working ok. Hope this helps.
The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers. The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation. To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start the dishwasher.This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in the sequence. Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is affected and how to troubleshoot.
Check for a float switch that senses the water level. It may have two level sense of filled and overfill the latter would trigger the waste pump to avoid a flood. If the filled switch has failed, that could cause the problem. The waste pump MAY also be triggered on the basis of the filling taking too much time before the filled switch actuates... if it has failed, the time would be exceeded.
Possible the inlet valve has given up and is not allowing water in.
Also possible there is a slight leak enough to shut the water off (safety feature) - Check underneath for a float mechanism and any water there.
Though Noise depends on the model and make of the machine, still you can use the below methods to minimize the noise :-
the dishwasher is level. An unleveled machine can cause unwanted
vibration noise in addition to dish rattling. Most appliances have
leveling feet that adjust to ensure that the appliance is level. Ensure
the machine is level. If you can't access the feet, call a professional.
insulation around the dishwasher. A sound-absorbing foam can diminish
dishwasher noise level. Unless you are familiar with how to remove or
install dishwashers, have a professional perform this task.
dishes securely. One sure fire way to cut down on dishwasher noise is
to load the dishes properly. Cups, saucers and other items that aren't
properly placed in the dishwasher can toss about by the jet streams of
water. Put small items in a dishwasher approved, screened container to
prevent them from getting caught in the dishwasher's cleaning
a quiet dishwasher. Some manufacturers make dishwashers with built-in
noise reduction features. Research and read reviews for each to
determine which one works best in your situation. Magazines like
"Consumer Reports" provide unbiased reviews that can be helpful.
if it is dirty water then it sounds like it's coming from the sink if washing machine waste is plumbed to the sink make sure washing machine waste pipe is higher than the sink waste outlet if it is clean water then a new water valve is what's needed

GPF65Check electrical connection to dishwasher. All that moving around may have contributed to a poor connection. Test wire nut connections where the household wire connects to the dishwasher by holding wire nuts and tugging each wire to make sure they are firmly attached. Inspect incomming wire to make sure it has not been damaged.
I had the same problem after a year of use. All the cycle sounded good except for the drain. I disconnected the drain hose with all turned off and only a small amount of water came out ( the inside pan was full ) I then stuck it to my mouth ( gross ) and nothing but back pressure. Another great heave and POW a wad of grease came out. In short by wife poured some fresh stock down the drain which backed into the drain pipe and cooled. Done.
