Question about Washing Machines
Washer keeps filling with water til over flowing. Have to manually turn water off and set the dial further on to start the agitating cycle.
Hi, Will the water shut off if you turn the timer off or unplug the washer?
If it shuts off when power is turned off to the washer, you need to look into the water level switch. If turning off power to the washer will not stop the water, you need to change the inlet valve.
Please let me know so I can assist you further.

Your machine needs a water level switch. It's not a very expensive item and fairly easy to replace for a do-it-yourselfer. If you don't feel up to it, an appliance tech could do the repair for less than the cost of new washer, probably an hour labor plus part and trip charge.
You don't give your make and model so I can't be more specific. If you want to give it a shot, search the Web for "water level switch replacement" and your machine make and model. You'll find many sites with parts and how-to information.

Check water level Switch make sure the hose is connected properly.
If it is loose simply cut about 1/2 an inch from each end.
Reconnect and make sure there are no kinks on the line.
Check the water level with a ohm meter.
Make sure the water valve shuts off when the timer is off.
(if the water valve does not shut off even with power off, replace it)
