This answer was rated:

Anti flood came on on my dishwasher. I emptied the tray to reset and run a cycle to see if any water reappeared. There are two small grey flexi hoses running from each side at the front, they're clipped on to the bottom of the sump with open ends. Once the dishwasher had filled up, water started pouring from both pipes and tripped the anti flood again.

Check the water level device is working... This indicates an overfill.

Thanks, ***** ***** I find it and how do I check it?

The water level device usually takes the form of a pressure switch and it has a thin tube going to it.. If the tube gets blocked then the device can not sense the water that has entered the appliance and therefore continues to fill.. and as in your case, an overfill occurs causing water to exit the tub and activate the safety device.

The water pressure device on dishwashers can normally be found at the lower part of the appliance by removing the right hand side panel.

I think it'should sorted. It ran for a short while then double beeped indicating it wasn't draining but there was nothing to drain. I reset it all again and it'seems currently 30 minutes into a cleaning cycle with no issues. Fingers crossed! Thanks for your help!
