Yes in this case you have either a leak, or a bad float sensor in the bottom of the dishwasher.

More than likely its just a leak, but can you tell when where exactly the water is coming from?

Is it just inside the unit or is it coming from below the unit under its floor?

Thank you

The water pumps out satisfactorily so that there is no residue of water above the filters, so the water seems to be coming from the base of the unit.

Thank you for that information.

Yes you do have a leak internally that is allowing water to get to a place that isn't good, (electronics down there).

This one can be really difficult to find the leak on, so In this case I would recommend a service call to a local appliance repair shop.

Even for an experienced tech it will take a little time to locate, and they use specialty tools for that ;-)

I wish I had better news for you on this, I really do. But this one really isn't a do it yourself project.

If you feel you want to try, please let me know and I will help you further as much as possible;-)

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
