My LG TROMM Hot water continually fills even after machine is turned off and unplugged. I have to shut off water supply to stop it.

Unplug the washer removing all electrical power from the machine. Turn the water back on and confirm that water is still entering the machine.

If the condition is true no power to washer and water enters machine it is very likely that the fill solenoid has failed.

this part is not that difficult to replace.

Hi, The cold water is entering the machine very

Did you clean the filter? There is a filter in the inlet, a little filter that can be removed with a pair of pliers. Rinse it out and put filter back in its place. I think it would not even matter if you leave the filter out. Hot water filter is not blocked because it is not used as often as the cold water one. Clean both! I noticed a big drop in water flow if filter is dirty.

Water continues to empty in to the machine even after water level has been achieved & the wash cycle begins (slow but constant). Have to turn off water valve.

Water entering the machine and not stopping

Hi, check water solenoid valve again, or give it a little tap, sometimes they get stuck, when you remove plug, if you had a timer problem, water would stop, your water solenoid valve have to be faulty, if you purchase it, you should return it. if it were a used one it's defected. the only other thing is if you have high water pressure in your house/building, probably that could force it open, but most unlikely, you should check, but first check water solenoid valve, it could be a mechanical fault, inside of water solenoid valve, you can remove water solenoid valve, put it apart and make visual check of plunger and all other parts inside of valve, if same problem continues, replace water solenoid valve. let me know, if your problem continues. Good luck.

GE SpaceMaker washing machine does not stop filling.

try replacing your water selenoid coming in. remember it isnt a mechanical timer it is a computerized timer, so if the selenoid isnt the problem, it might be the computerized timer. computers are very finicky, pain in the a- -!
