Water keeps coming back after draining, raised the drain hose turn off

Bailed the water out but it keeps filling the bottom of th e dishwasher and leaking out on the hardwood floor. I raised the drain hose and even turned off the water, and water still came back. What gives. This could take an hour or more, but it's a pain. Some times it doesn't do it. Not sure why it's sporadic.
