Question about GE WSM2780DWW Unitized Spacemaker Washer and Gas Dryer
My GE WSM2780DAWW stack set dryer and washer was encountering the same problem (water kept filling up not stopping). I saw this page, but the SOLUTION described didn't really draw a picture for me.
Here's how I fixed the leaking washer. Sitting in front of the washer I removed two small screws on the bottom left and right of the front panel. Then sliding the front panel DOWN, it comes off. This allows a view into the machine. Around the LEFT side of the wash basin you will find a white tube. This tube is about the diameter of a pencil. My tube was not attached, and when the wash basin filled up past the point where it should stop, water came out. Reaching around the side of the wash basin with my left hand I could feel where the white tube was supposed to connect properly. Then I attached the white tube. This fixed the problem.
I left the front panel off for a day to make sure it didn't continue to leak and also for the area to dry out.

Tmaust, usually when this happens the hose has come off the pressure switch, or the switch itself has gone bad. Since you didn't post a model number I'm unable to direct you to the pressure switch. The hose that Im refering to is about 1/4 inch thick, clear and comes off the side of the tub and leads to the pressure switch. These switchs are usually under the console. If you can post a complete model number that would be a great help.

The problem is the pressure switch has failed or the hose is plugged up, has a hole in it. These are usually inexpensive and are very easy to replace. Here is a video this will walk you thru testing and replacing a pressure switch. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.
