It sounds like the water valve solenoid is bad or it is getting power when it shouldn't

My washer is filling with water non-stop, even when its not on. I have to turn the water off to the machine to keep it from filling with water. Is there a valve stuck open? Or is it circuit board going...

The water LEVEL SENSOR has failed and so there is no detection of the level selected on the washer. Hence the inlet valve is not cut off even after the water level has reached,
You need to check this unit and replace.
Secondly as mentioned even after the power is put off if the water comes into the washer then it is possible that the INLET valve has failed or is stuck OPEN .
Remove clean and reset or replace.

Washing machine keeps filling with water even when washing machine off. can hear the water coming through the drawer at top and fills into drum. had to out cold water valve off

You will need to replace the inlet valve inside the washing machine. It is stuck in the open position. It's a fairly easy to replace. you will just have to unscrew the top[ in the back and lift the lid to access.

Keeps running even when shut off and states "overfilling".

sounds like the water solinoid valve is stuck in the open position. look at the hole where the water comes in machine. alot of times it will be a slow dribble of water which overtime overfills the machine. just replace water valve if thats the case

Keeps filling up with water even on spin

Close the water supply valve and allow the machine to completely drain the water from the tub. Turn off the machine and disconnect it from the power outlet. Open the water supply valve. Replace the water inlet valve if water drips into the tub when the machine is off.

Start a new cycle if the machine stops filling when it is off. The control board or the water level switch is malfunctioning if it keeps filling even during the spin cycle. Indicate the model number for proper troubleshooting and repair assistance.

The water keeps coming in the machine and the ringer won't spin to get it out

from your explanation it would sound like a faulty daiphram switch it is this device that informs the electronic inlet valve to turn of and advance onto the next step of the programm if the water keeps comming into machine even when operating then it would be a faulty inlet valve, isolate water supply to avoid flooding

Water keeps running into my washing machine. Even

Water valve is stuck open, probably by lime or calcium build-up. Proper fix is to replace the water valve. How old is the washer?
