Question about Washing Machines
My ge washing machine wont stop filling with water when i turn it on
The usual culprit for a washer that will not stop filling is the pressure switch. The switch is located inside the operator console behind the load size, or water level knob (this knob has different names based on the washer model). Before assuming the pressure is defective, however, inspect the pressure switch and ensure the small plastic air hose is still attached to it. It is common for this small air hose to come loose or develop small cracks or breaks. Without the hose installed, the switch cannot detect the appropriate pressure in the wash tub and will not shut off. The result: as washer that continually fills and will overflow. What appears to be a significant problem may only be a loose hose and few minutes of your time. Please inspect the switch, check the entire length of the hose for cracks and make sure the electrical connection(s) are intact and not corroded, then get back to me. I hope this helps you.
PS Make sure you UNPLUG the washer before servicing!

SOURCE: Filling With Water
This is probably a control board failure, which should be replaced by someone familiar with them.
If you are handy, you can do it yourself.
If you need assistance, let me know.

Replace water inlet valve, it's stuck open. You may try removing hoses to valve and see if something is holding it open
