Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

The float switch is what tells the unit to stop filling so if its over flowing either the float is stuck or the float switch is bad, you will just have to take a look at it.

The video below will give some idea of what you are looking for, its not your model dishwasher in the video but they all work around the same concept so it will tell you what you need to know.

The replacement float switch for your model is :

The question I asked is not the one you sent back to me, so I'm resenting it. During the wash cycle the bottom of the tub fills with water and over flows the bottom front lip between it and the door, and I have to select the cancel/drain the empty.

Hello, I am sorry nobody has gotten back to you yet. Are you still needing help with this?

Is it not draining during the cycle or is it just filling too much, do you know?

I'm holding off any more advice until I re-level the washer, which right front had sunk into floor, to see if this is the reason for overflowing (seeping) over the bottom right front lip during the wash cycle. The gasket and overflow switch seem to be ok.
Appliance Technician: Rusty S, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 months ago

Sure, please know I am available should you have questions once it is level.

I completed leveling the washer but it is still seeping water out between the bottom front lip and door bottom during the wash cycle. I checked the float switch and it is clicking when I activate it. The amount of leakage is so small I don't think it's the overflow. Also when it draining there is full flow in the garbage disposal indicating there is no blocking. On my model Is there a seal gasket at the bottom of the door and could it be leaking?
Appliance Technician: Rusty S, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 months ago

Does it leak only when it is running and spraying water?
