When I open my dishwasher in the morning, there is water in the bottom.
I know all the water has drained out at the end of the cycle because, when I open the door when the cycle has ended, there is no water in the bottom.
It seems to come in over a period of time before the next wash. I have no idea where the water is coming from or why.
My dishwasher is only 2 years old.
Can someone help.

Re: Water in bottom of dishwasher
You could have a defective fill valve that is not shutting off properly. Look for a fill inlet opening somewhere on the inside casing of the wash tub. Usually it is on the left hand side of the machine looking in. While the dishwasher is sitting idle, watch the fill valve opening to see if water is leaking in. It could be a minor as just a drip. However, over a period of several hours you could end up with a wash tub full of water. Over a weekend with no one home, it could overflow onto the floor. The valve usually cannot be repaired and would require replacing. Good luck.

when you say you woke to water draining i assume the pump was activated if so you water valve is not shutting completely causing your dishwasher to gradually over fill this will cause your water level switch to activate the overfill stage and bring in your water pump have a close look and if this is the case replace water valve hope this helps let me know how you go
there is a leak . when the unit stays in drain mode that means there is water at the bottom of the base. The float switch stays in drain mode untill the water is removed. you must take off the side panel to remove the water,let me know what happens.:)
I think your drain hose must be too low...the drain hose has to raise above the bottom of the sink..this keeps a air gap in the hose.. keeps the water from running out and will also keep water from the sink running into the dishwasher... let me know if this helps
Many dishwasher have their drainlines tied into under sink disposers. If a person caps the sink drain while dishwasher is running, it can back the water back to the washer keeping dishes dirty and backing up water
You have a drain problem, Your house drain may be restricted the dish washer pumps out with more pressure then the water just falling down your sink.I would snake it or have a plumber clean out that drain...let me know if this helps
