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...

Your problem sounds like a defective water level switch, the rinse switch bypasses this switch therefore your get water whan you go to rinse.
lift the top cover, look at the front of the machine, insert a flat knife approx 4" in at each side of the seam between the front panel an the lid to release the clips, this will allow you to lift the lid, the water pressure switch is at the back (usually round with 3 wires and a small hose to the outer drum low down, ensure the small hose is connected, or with a mais tester check the output (orange/purple wire terminal 2), no mains voltage=no water, the input is grey (terminal 1) from the timer and should be live, the 3rd wire is the output telling the timer "the washer is full" (light blue terminal 3) and will be live when full.

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.

Remove the control console cover. Find the water level switch.
It has a small tube attached to it.
Remove the tube and blow air through it. It is probably stopped up. Reattach it to the water level switch.
Look over the length of the tube and may sure it is not pinched.
Set the washer to spin and run spin for about 1 minute.
Then run water on a lower level and see if it shuts off.
If not replace the water level switch.

Have you checked the inlet filters on the water hoses ?
If you unscrew the water hoses from the machine, and look inside the connections on the machine, you should see the filters - they are usually a plastic "cage" supporting a gauze or fine mesh. These can be pulled out (you may need tweezers or fine nosed pliers) and washed under a running tap.
If this doesnt cure it, check that the water supplies where the hoses connect to your house plumbing are actually fully on and flowing properly.
Otherwise, there is probably a fault with the solenoid valve(s) on the machine that controls the flow of hot water in to your machine.
