Dishwasher slowly fills after cycle

If water slowly fills in the tub when not in use.

a) Most likely your machine inlet water valve not seating properly and closing. Change the machine water valve.

b) May be sink drain water back flowing to the tub. But you have checked that.

So it has to be the machine inlet water valve.

Washer continuously fills

Not sure if you mean that it fills all the time and overflows or you mean that it just always fills and never has enough water.
The first problem would refer to a faulty water level switch - need to replace.
The second would be that the washer drains as it fills - if the drain hose is lower than the washer, inspect the anti-siphon valve.

Washing machine constantly fills

The pressure switch, also called the water level switch, is what control the amount of water goes in the machine, If your machine is constantly filling to the overflow point, then that is your problem. Now, if water is going in and the level is staying the same then your machine drain line is lower than the pump and your siphoning out the water as it goes in. Pull the drain up a little a that should fix the problem.

Washer drains then spins then fills again and drains but no spin

Try this, unplug washer for two minutes, plug back in, open and close lid seven times slowly, this will reset the computer and the electronic motor. Also on water level switch, make sure hose from switch to tub is not plugged, blow it out, gets clogged with soap.

Washing machine fills with water when not in use.

You have an open solenoid on your water valve where the fill hoses connect. Change the water valve and you should be good.
