Hiya.  I have a similar problem to the washing up detergent in the dishwasher, only a little more complex perhaps.  ( I am hoping easier).

So last night my wife cleans the kitchen and puts a glass in the dishwasher that we were keeping the detergent in for the pans.  Obviously we got the big bubble problem. 

I cleaned up the mess and noticed that the bottom was empty, so let it continue to run.  Several hours later, I woke up and went into the kitchen to notice that the dishwasher pump was still running. 

I can only turn it off at the wall switch and have tried both vinegar and vegetable oil.  The drain pump is working well, and I have flushed the dishwasher with about 40 litres of water (10 gal).

Now Im flummoxed.  Anyone got any ideas?  There is not a drain valve visible in the dishwasher.  It is an Australian design Dishlex Global 300.
