Question about Viking DFUD042 Built-in Dishwasher
I have the same thing, unit pump keeps running, when I pulled it from under the cabinet, if you tilt it back a little it stops, as soon as you lower it back down the pump starts to run again. Getting code as too much water in the tank even though it is empty. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

If the cycle does not stop draining that is usually because of a faulty
water level sensor. The floater that controls the water level in your appliance.
The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely. Check if sensor is stuck or if switch is faulty.
Some machine may use a membrane switch instead of a floater.

On the Viking, much like Bosch, Asko and others, there is a tray or sump under the machine that catches water that either leaks, or more often is the product of too much soap causing an overflow of suds. This tray as a foam block that floats and starts the drain pump. This is to prevent the washer from ruining the floor in the event of a stuck valve etc. When you tip it back it is reseting the float in the tray. A wet vac can be used to clear the tray and then you will be fine. Hope this helps!

I have had the same problem this weekend and fixed it by looking at wiring diagram and a few troubleshooting hours, here it is , it is the float switch that is not level therefore the drain pump keeps pumping and it wont let it cycle to anything else, take off the bottom plate of your dishwasher and you will see the grey drain housing , just bellow it to the left is the float switch relay with 3 black wires coming off, all i did was put a spacer to raise the drum so that the switch shut off and leveled the housing and it worked , if you have the manual look at the wiring diagram its all there .

it may not be the pump.if it leaks when you run a wash cycle then the pump seal may be bad but if it only leaks when you drain it,it seems that its a drain hose/piping connection.

SOURCE: Stopping the Cancel/Drain Cycle
Disconnect the Drain Hose from the plumbing under the sink and using a bucket hold the hose in the bucket and attempt to drain the dishwasher. If you have a disposal and recently replaced it, the knockout plug may be still inside where the drain hose attaches into the disposal. To determine if it is still there, using a screwdriver, stick the screwdriver into the drain hose hole on the side of the disposer and if you feel blockage then the knockout plug is still in the disposer and will need to come out. To remove the plug use a short screwdriver and a hammer and place the screwdriver into the drain and strike the top of the screwdriver once and the plug should pop out of the disposal. Be careful not to hit the disposal too hard or to damage any plumbing. Reattach the drain hose and you should be all set. When you remove the drain hose if the machine is flashing an error code, go to the circuit breaker box and turn off the breaker for the dishwasher, wait 5 mins and turn it back on. This should reset the board and the machine should operate properly.
