Is the fill on this dishwasher timed or is it controlled by the float? And would it over fill if not leveled properly?

It's timed. The float is just there as a backup safety device in case the valve gets mechanically stuck open.

Come on Samurai, you know better then that!!!!!

If the valve gets machanically stuck open lifting the float or unplugging the machine isn't going to stop the flood!!!!

Now if the timer gets stuck in the fill position or the timer fill contact points weld together or the flow washer in valve is to big, (someone puts wrong valve in), that's basically what the float switch takes care of, would have to be something sending power to the fill valve for too long for the float switch to come into the picture and save from a flood.
