This is a Fisher and Paykel dishdrawer.  There are two tabs on the sides, push the tabs in and pull the drawer out.  There are several things that can cause water leakage.  The customer may have loaded a dish that was too tall.  The lid motors may be bad.  If they sound like they are laboring hard to close the lid, replace them.  If there is a plastic link support the end may have broke and got stuck between the lid and tub.  The plastic link support subs to a metal support arm that's a much better design.
Here's a service manual.

Thanks Tgoods,

if the flood sensor is tripped will the drain pump run all the time?

I read somewhere that you have to get the water up off the bottom of the machine to get it to run. Is that correct?

Yes, I think so.  It's been a few years since I worked on these since I quit doing warranty.  It's not a float, it's a moisture sensor.  You may have to remove the control board and dry off the sensor to get it to quit draining.
