Question about Washing Machines
A couple days ago, my washer flooded my garage. When I looked in the tub, it was still full of water and water was still coming into it. It did not look like it does when its filling. I could not turn off my water supply, it continued to run. I tried to use the dial to get rid of the water, but my dial wasn't working right either. Help!
Possible that the timer program unit has failed and so does not go into the program cycle. Check and see if there is any loose connections, remove the front panel to confirm the connections. If not the estimation for a new timer and the feasibility to replace must be thought of.

tidalwave If the water continues to flow even when the washer timer and the power to the washer are off then you are right and the water inlet valve has to be replaced. If it does it only when the washer is on then it could be different problems. In that case the first thing you have to check is the water level switch. This is the device which controls the water level. Remove the power first.Open the control panel and you will see the switch on the left side. There is the clear plastic hose connected to the switch. Make sure the hose is not loose. This is one of the most common cause of overflow. If it got loose, drain out all water from the washer before you reconnect the hose. If this is not the issue then you have to check the continuity across the water level switch therminals. When there is no water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 12 (gray and orange wires). Whet the tub has filled up with water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 14 (gray and light blue wires). If the continuity is wrong replace the water level switch. If you are going to do it, make sure there is no water in the tub before you will remove the clear plastic hose from the old switch. Good luck. Gendos. post back...

Does the water stop when you push the timer in or are you having to shut the spigots off?? If it stops when the timer is pushed in then you have a problem with the pressure switch. There are quite a few tricks to axcessing your machine's components but if you are handy ill attemt to help.

Do you hear the ticking of the dial moving? if so it could be that the points aren't getting connection to cycle it threw the various cycles

That is because the water level switch get stuck when water level reaches that particular point.
The water level switch is activated either by a floater sensor or by a membrane sensor that detects water pressure/volume, depending on the model.
On washing machines it is usually a membrane switch, and that is faulty on your machine.
