Re: Issue with landlord about getting a counter-top dishwasher

He/she means back-filling from the drainage hose. If it's not in some place higher than the water level in the sink then the contents of the sink can drain into the dishwasher - the u-bend isn't high enough. Usually just needs tying up close to the top of the sink.
If that doesn't work then it's probably the inlet valve - but given how incredibly hard it is to get through to the Sharp warranty line, I'm hoping that's not the case. It's only after its been standing for 16 hours without use that we see water inside.

Well you said already it's back-filling because the drain wasn't high enough.

If the inlet valve is at fault (unlikely) then that's not back-filling. If you switch off the water to the washer between uses and it stops filling up then it could be your culprit.

I had a dishwasher where the inlet valve was faulty, the pump would start every few hours, so yes turn off the water but leave the power on.
I had it fixed for 40 including parts & call out, the advantage of living in Malta over CH, where buying a new machine would be the cheaper option in most cases.
