Question about Washing Machines
Water continues to pour into the washer without shutting off and it fills up and eventually will pop the locked door open and all the water leaks out. The cycle will end but water will continue to pour in even after the buzzer goes and the door is open.
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...

out the bottom of door?? no through the bottom panel???. check the rubber door seal for rips or tears pull it back and look around entire circumference. smalll rip in very front of seal where door should close against will cause leak for sure

Our LG WM-2432H front load washer was overfilling. I got the service manual from LG on the web ( http://22.214.171.124/contents/Laundry/WM2432.htm )
and the most useful thing in that manual was a listing of special control codes that can be entered from the front panel, for example to turn on the drain pump.
I thought maybe the sensor switch was broken, but after disassembling the machine I discovered that the 3/16" ID rubber hose between the sensor switch and the bottom of the tub had shaken loose from its supports and through dragging on the back of the tub during spin cycles, had worn down and had a hole in it, allowing air pressure to leak.
After vacuuming up the shredded rubber, I replaced that tubing with a three foot length of 3/16" inside diameter fuel line purchased from a local Lowes store. I used some twist ties to secure it to the back of the washer housing so it would not drag on the drum. The washer now works fine.
You can do this whole repair by removing the back access panel, only four screws. Look for shredded rubber; the hose just slips off of the sensor and the tub connect points at both ends.

This is a symptom of a pressure switch malfunction. More than likely, the air hose that attaches to the pressure has come loose and fallen off. If you post back with your brand and model number I can give you advice on how to locate your pressure switch. This is usually a very simple repair, that does not repair any special tools, repairman, or money. That is...as long as the pressure itself isn't bad. You need to do a visual inspection first to make sure.
PS For future reference: Posting your brand and model number makes this problem diagnosis process much quicker as all washers are not the same.

Removing the lower front panel (3 screws nearest floor), and opening the round, white water pump filter cap (be ready to catch about 2 gallons of water!) is the best place to start. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver and a large, flat pan (deep turkey tray works well)!
YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE what I found in my filter housing this morning (see photo below)!
The washer is working fine now, although I may go back and remove the entire water pump so it can be dismantled, thoroughly cleaned, and reinstalled.
