Remove the float and check/clean it.
Check for cracks in the tub where the float is located.
Check that the holes in the spray arm are clean and there is nothing deflecting the water. Sometimes this can cause the water to hit the float etc. at a weird angle and cause a leak.

1st how do you remove float? I am assuming that the spray arm is what spins and cleans dishes. Sorry just prob not as handy as you normally deal with. ran it yesterday and it didn t leak in the pre wash but as it began to wash cycle it seemed that the pressure was pushing the float up and down thus pushing the level actuator up and down.. Each time it would do this it would drip.

Cannot say without a model number.

The float and switch are just overfill protection. It does not regulate the water level in the tub.
