Question about GE WVSR1060A Top Load Washer
The water fills up the tub and will not stop. It keeps overflowing. Pushing in the knob will not shut the water off either. I have to turn the water off at the spicket. When the water is stuck on, I can take off a yellowish clear hose on the left side of the tub, blow air into it, something makes a clicking noise, and it stops the water. Kind of like some sort of float is stuck and the air being blown into the hose moves the float. As soon as I stop blowing air into it, it runs again. I also blew air into a small box on the lower left side of the tub that the hose plugs into and it fixes the problem for a few loads. Then the problem happens again.
Shut the faucet on the wall, disconnect your hoses to see if there are debris blocking the fine meshes, clean this out, as well as the mesh on the machine. If these don't work change the inlet valve, it is easy you can do it yourself.

The hose you're blowing into is the pressure switch hose. It connects between the tub and the pressure switch which controls the water level.
Basically, as the water level rises so does the air pressure in the hose and pressure switch. When there is enough air pressure inside the pressure switch, a diaphragm contacts a switch (clicking sound) and shuts off the inlet water valve.
This hose will sometimes stretch with time at the connection points. When this happens, air is able to escape and therefore never builds enough pressure to activate the diaphragm.
Obviously, replace the hose if it is damaged. If there are no visible holes or cracks in the hose, try trimming 1/4" off each end of the hose (diaphragm side and tub side) and reconnect making sure to push hose ends securely onto connections.
Alternatively you can use small clamps on each end.
If this doesn't work, you may need to replace the pressure switch.
