Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

if the water is getting 2 inches deep, it sunds like you're getting too much water inside the dishwasher. Do you have a model number so that I can better assist you? The model should be located on a sticker around the frame of the tub and can be seen if you open the door.

OK so if your dishwasher is filling with too much water, it means that your float switch isn't cutting the water off. Open the door and remove the bottom rack. In the front left corner is the float switch. Remove the cover and lift up and down on the float switch to make sure it's not sticking. Remove the kick panel below the door and make sure the switch that the float activates is making contact and it's clicking. Start the dishwasher again and if you still have issues and the float isn't raising, replace the float. if the float is raising but it continues to fill, replace the switch.
