What type of dishwasher do you have? Has your kitchen floor flooded? If it
has. The tray under dish washer isn't water tight. Moisture creates some unusual
problems. Some of newer dish washer the there control panel under the top of
door this also create problem especially if the switches are on the top of the
door. Another moisture problem. I have repaired a new Electrolux dish was
three times in less than 6 months. The floor would flood from the Maytag side
load washing machine. The Madam of the house didn't tell me that the washing
machine flooded the kitchen floor. No window in the door and sometime fill
water solenoid would stick and fill the tube. When they open washing machine
door, 12 gallons of water would spill. So I fix both of them. GB...stewbison
It sounds like you have a failing inlet valve. The inlet valves have springs that push them closed when the machine doesn't require water. When you start a load of clothes, the machine controller sends electricity to the inlet valves. The electricity (via magnetism) overcomes the springs and opens the valves. Your valves aren't closing all the way due to them either failing or having a foreign object holding them open.
In either case, you need to replace the inlet valve assembly ASAP. Failure to replace these valves could result in your machine flooding- not a good situation.

If it fills with water and starts the cycle and
the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the
water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.
There is a screen filter in the water supply hose that may need cleaning. A recurring problem like yours is usually caused by sediment in the water which prevents the valve from closing. It's usually just the cold water side because the hot water has a chance to settle before being used. . Being on a well water system or a system where the pipes have been disturbed from repair or construction can cause extra sediment.
Try turning water faucets off. Does it still flood when done? Does your drain hose empty into stand pipe that is at least 30 inches from floor? Make sure drain hose does not go anymore than a few inches into pipe. If it is pushed too far in, unit can syphon water back into unit.
