I have an issue that water is still entering into the tub even after the washing cycle is complete and I am forced to turned-off the intake valves to stop this. Infact the washer door has been opened because of this water pressure and flooded the entire laundry room. The washer is just one year old and please help. Any help appreciated.

Re: Water inflow even after the cycle is complete
Seems to me that you having problem with water valve in this machine. Some solenoid on water valve is stock and water entering the washer even power is off.Water valve Part # 8181694. Valve located on the top of the washer. Any questions let me know.

The water level sensor is faulty and so it does not switch even with water level coming to the set level. Unless the water level switch is triggered the water inflow will not stop because the inlet valve will not cut off.Remove the water level sensor and check if the diaphragm is working , if not it must be replaced.
What has happened is that your water pump has gone out and it cannot pump the water out of the washers tub. This is a common issue and replacing the pump is not that hard assuming you have the time, effort, tools and energy.
To pump out the excess tub water while failing to complete spin cycle; Enter Service Mode by simultaneously pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00” Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak keythe drain pump will turn on. Stop with off button or hit the Presoak key. This process is documented in the Service Manual.I would go to page 16 of the SM lower right hand part of page, Board Output Test and turn on the drain pump in service mode to pump out the tub. If I could ask you to do a little troubleshooting; It sounds like the wash/agitate cycle completes and you enter into the spin cycle of the selected wash cycle is that correct.When the wash cycle fails does the Cycle Status LED indicate that the washer is in the Spin cycle? With a empty wash basket no wash load in the basket and you start a Spin Only cycle will the Spin Only cycle complete? If the washer will start the cycle do you hear and loud Spin Only cycle noise such as metal against metal grinding noise? With the washer off and no clothes in the wash basket can you open the lid then Spin the wash basket as fast as you can in the CCW direction the only direction.The wash basket should spin CCW several rotations and coast down to a smooth stop dose it? I’m checking for Outer Tub increased bearing resistance…..Rich
Close the water supply valve and allow the machine to completely drain the water from the tub. Turn off the machine and disconnect it from the power outlet. Open the water supply valve. Replace the water inlet valve if water drips into the tub when the machine is off.
Start a new cycle if the machine stops filling when it is off. The control board or the water level switch is malfunctioning if it keeps filling even during the spin cycle. Indicate the model number for proper troubleshooting and repair assistance.
If your machine is a FAV6800AWW or FAV9800AWW the (upside down u and f) may be a “NF” for no fill error.The washer has tried to fill the machine with water and has sensed a water fill issue.The control board has shut the wash cycle down with an “NF” error to the display because of excess time to complete the water fill portion of the wash cycle. Will the machine complete the cycle with Hot water only or Cold water only?I would do a Quick Wash cycle just to test with an empty wash basket. Regardless of the above test and assuming you have good water pressure for both Hot and Cold supplies to the washer I would do the following. Close the water source valves to the washer and remove the Hot and Cold hose connections at the back of the machine and check for clogged inlet screens.If the water inlet screens are free of restrictions I would go into Service Mode and turn on the Hot and Cold water valves on one at a time and make sure the tub will fill with about 2 inches of water in about 3 minutes in service mode.Check both Hot and Cold inlet valves individually see page 16 of the SM Board Output Test, enter service mode and do the function test for both Hot and Cold Water Valve’s.If the inlet screens are clean and you have water fill restrictions in service mode we may need to look at replacing the water inlet valve assembly.You can turn on the drain pump in service mode to empty the tub or just start a wash cycle and the machine will empty the tub.
