Is the drain hose connected correctly with a high loop?

Does the drain hose connect to a air gap device?

Is the drain hose routed through the floor to a connection below the dishwasher?

Could also be a bad board, the relay for the drain pump or the water valve could be welded closed.

   I suspect that it is a bad relay. With the door open and drain/off selected....the machine begins to drain(and simultaneously at the same time) it runs water in for the durarion of the drain???



I think it would be the main board, but there is also a second board. Is there a way to be sure i get the correct board?

It may be a bad Triac on the Board
I only see one Board

I see, didnt realize it was all one piece.  Hmmmm that narrows down the board selection a bit.

OR it could be a stuck Water Inlet Vave (not likely)

With power to the Dish Washer removed,

disconnect the Water Inlet Valve under the front ToeKick Panel and try the Drain again
