Michael :

Hi I am sorry to hear that, how old is your dishwasher?

Customer:

5 or 6 years

Michael :

thank you for that

Michael :

if you want you can do the following if your handy and have a few basic tools.

Michael :

One of the most common causes for an overfill fault is that the dishwasher cannot pump out the dirty water due to a plugged drain hose. Check the drain hose if it is clogged. Now remove the bottom drawer from the unit to inspect the flood switch. Remove the wire harness cover on the underside of the drawer. With the bottom cover off, unclip the wire harness, fill hose, and drain hose. Then unclip the linkage at the back of the drawer and lift the drawer off the slider arms. Now' you'll be able to look at the flood switch. Note the positions of the wires on the flood switch and remove them. Then un clip the switch housing from the base panel. The switch housing contains one switch for each drawer. The switches are wired normally closed (NC) and each switch has three spade connections, so it's important to note where the wires went. Now clean the contacts and let it dry. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Micheal, turns out the drain pipe was blocked after all. It is a built in unit and only worked when I pulled out the dishwasher and tried to unblock the line again.
