Hello, I have a Kenmore 24 inch dishwasher, (8 years old) which is automatically filling it's wash basin at night (of course) only to end up laking out the front of the dishwasher. This event happened two year sago and I discounted it as user error, but not now. It seems to be happening more frequently and my hard wood flooring is not too pleased either as I am finding water under many boards. Could you help me please? Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
Do you have the model number please?

The fact that this fills up overnight indicates a problem with the fill valve.
This is attached to the water inlet valve and acts like a tap. It should be off untill the machine "calls" for water.
Just like a tap it can leak and allow water into the machine all the time
