Having an overflow issue on my whirlpool gold dishwasher.

Having an overflow issue on my whirlpool gold dishwasher. During one of the cycles water flows heavy through the door overflow holes enough to leak on the floor.What can cause this?The float switch was replaced and is in working order. It sounds to me that this is happening when the water is released through the top smaller spinning jet (on the "ceiling" of the dishwasher)We don't know what to do, the float switch has been replaced, the vent wax switch was replaced. Finally took the door off and watch the entire cycles and it overflowing through the door holes at the bottom. This seems to be designed to accommodate some over flow, however it is being overwhelmed with too much water and is leaking on the floor at a substantial rate.Note:This dishwasher came with our new home. Was installed during a remodel to "flip" the home. So we are the first users of the dishwasher even though it was bought over a year ago.Home warrenty covers half the cost to replace, and the repair company can't figure out whats wrong.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 665.13123K701 that is leaking water. It appears to be from the white float switch but I'm not sure if that is possible or if it may be at another location.
