SOURCE: Unable to control water level
Some water may have got into the pressure switch. Remove the pressure switch and see if you can shake any water out. Make sure the cables go back on the correct terminals. make sure the tub is empty when you refit the pressure switch, so no water is allowed to enter the pressure tube

An overfill caused by a failed valve will occur even if the machine is unplugged. Trace amounts of debris from your plumbing etc or even a deterioration of valve parts themselves can cause it to pass water while off. This can be as slow as a drip but given time it will overflow. Water level switches are by necessity highly reliable parts and when they do fail they usually "fail safe" in other words not allow any current to the water valve. Overfills that are not due to a bad water inlet valve are usually traceable to a pinched, plugged or disconnected air hose. The location of the switch varies. Sometimes it's right behind the water level knob. On others like front loaders it's inside the machine, usually above the tub and at the end of a length of clear plastic tubing.

Make sure your drain hose to the drain pipe is higher than the water in the tub if not it will keep running and going out the drain.
Also try taking the hose off the level switch and blow in it to be sure it's not stoped up. If is it won't let the level sw cut off. air should go through it. Good luck
When you unpluged the power and it ddn't keep runing the water valve should be ok.
