This is usually a symptom of a pressure switch malfunction. The pressure switch is located in the operator console behind the load (or water) level knob. It is cylindrical in shape and
has an electrical connection and an air hose attached to it. In many
cases, the only problem is that the air hose has come loose and fallen
off the fitting on the pressure switch. All you have to do is reattach it. HINT: placing a small zip tie around the air hose where it connects onto the pressure switch will create enough resistance to keep the hose from vibrating loose again. Just a snug fit will do. Over tightening can break the fitting on the pressure switch. You will need to open the
console and inspect it. To open the console, it comes off in a few
different ways depending on the year and model of the washer:
1. If you have removable end caps on the console, they simply pry off by lifting from the the back exposing a screw under either end. Remove the screws and the console lifts up.
2. If the end caps do not come off, place a putty knife in the front corner of either end of the console where it meets the washer top and push in while lifting up. This depresses a retaining clip and the console will lift up.
3. Some consoles have a screw located on either side in the back that you need to remove and it will then lift up.
Be careful when you lift the console. There are small plastic hinges holding it in place and they can break if you aren't careful. Place the console in its resting position by laying it over the back of the washer. The pressure switch will be easily accessible. Double check the hose like I previously stated and double check to make sure all the electrical connections are in place.
If you check the switch and find that everything is in place as it should be, you may have to replace the switch. Post back with your COMPLETE model number (located around the rim of the washer tub opening) and I can track down a part number for you.
I hope this helps.

I suspect you have a water inlet valve problem. When the valves fail, they tend to either leak by, or do not open at all. The symptom you are describing is typical of an inlet valve that is not closing properly. The leak may be minute, but over time, it fills the tub and over flows. To access the water inlet valve, you will need to remove the washer top panel. Remove the three screws in the back that hold the top in place and slide the panel straight back and lift off. The water inlet valve will be located on the left hand side in the rear between the fill hoses and the dispenser (as viewed from the front of the washer). If you wish to perform this repair yourself, you can find the part at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your complete model number and the part can be located on the next page under the "Dispenser Parts" section as item number one (part #8181694). The replacement process is very simple. Just turn off the water source, remove the fill hoses, the dispenser hose and the mounting screws. If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.

Ok, it sounds either your hose from the water level pressure switch has come off or broke, or the pressure switch itself is bad.
Check the pressure switch hose first.
My tubing came loose and I just duct taped it back on and it works perfectly.
You would need to open your console as shown here:
Pull forward and up on the console and you can hinge it open and hanging from the hinges.
Here is your water level pressure switch:

Here is the pressure switch hose:
