problem could be the pressure stat which is a switch which detects water level or the pipe leading up to this switch or the air chamber the pipe goes to.
take top off. locate the pressure switch - has a small diameter pipe going to it. remove pipe and fit a similiar one. put on fill and pressurise this pipe by mouth and water fill should stop. if it doesn't, then switch is faulty.
if this is ok, examine carefully the small diameter pipe for splits and blockage. also check the air chamber for build up of gunge

try it just on cold water let run,turn off if water stops it not the water valve,do the same thing on hot,if either one does not turn off it is the water valve,if they both turn off then you need to check the water level hose from the switch to the tube,if both ends are secure then the water lelvel switch is bad,let me know what you find-mike

SOURCE: Washing machine overfills
Grab the tube off the water level switch that comes from the bottom of the tub and blow it out so that the sand in the bottom won't be blocking the operation,pump out the water, secure the tube tightly to the pressure switch and retry.

Hi, The first part to check is the inlet valve. If you shut the washer off, will the water stop? If the water continues when the power is off to the washer, change the inlet/mixer valve.
If the water stops filling when the power to thee washer is shut off, the water level switch needs checked.
Please let em know if either of these help so I can assist you further.

This machine has a water valve that works on vaccuum from the tub. You will see a small clear hose that runs from the side of the tub up to this valve. This valve is adjustable to change the water level in the tub to desired setting on some machines, but if it goes bad, it will not shut off, thus overflowing the tub. Find this valve and replace it if adjustment does not work.
