Question about Washing Machines
If the valves cannot be controlled then it is either an open or close type. Try controlling with the valve on the outside.

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...

The fill switch is a very sensitive device. You can test it by blowing into the tube, listen for the switch to click, or use an ohms tester. They are actually adjustble, the adjuster screw usually has glyptol (thread lock) on it. I would replace one before trusting an adjusted one.

Testimonial: "After posting this question I saw something on the internet suggesting the same. I think this must have been the problem. Thanks for your help!"
Test and eventually replace the inlet valve.
The inlet valve is tested reading impedance, if it is broken, then it usually read infinity (circuit open). Reaing is done disconnecting valve and pointing multimeter probes at valve solenoid contacts (the cold ones in your case).
A definitive test on inlet valve is done reading volts while cycling and observing if valve is opening. For safety reasons is better if the user performs only tests that can be done with power off.
The switching contacts and inlets is also a test even if basic, I think that the valve is gone.

Valve is part nr.2 in diagram below. Click on the picture to enlarge.
