You have a bad water level switch or a clogged plastic hose that goes to the water level switch.
Use a putty knife to open the front panel. The clips are at the top right and left sides just below the top lid. Push in on the clips and pull out on the panel.
On the left side of the tub you will see the air dome with aplastic hose connected.
Remove the hose and insert a small wire into the air dome hole to clean it out ouf soap scum. Then, blow through the hose and listen for a faint click in the water level switch. Also check the hose for a hole or being pinched.
The set the timer for spin and run a spin cycle then retry the water level and wash cycle.

SOURCE: keeps filling with water
The water level in a washing machine is determined by the pressure switch. The switch is located behind the load selector, water level, load size (has various names depending on model and manufacturer) knob on the operator console. If the switch malfunctions, the water will not shut off and the washer will overflow.
Now...before assuming the switch is defective, a common problem that occurs is the small air hose on the pressure switch coming loose or leaking. This air hose attaches from the wash tub to the pressure switch. The pressure swtich senses the change in air pressure as the tub fills and shuts the water off at the selected level. The following link explains:
To access your pressure switch, unplug the washer and open the operator console. Look for a clear plastic hose. If it is NOT attached, you may have found your problem. Reconnect and test operate.
If it IS attached, check the entire length of the hose all the way to the wash tub for any cracks of leaks. In addition, remove the electrical connection(s) and check for corrosion. Clean if necessary.
If all these preliminary steps don't solve your problem, replace your pressure switch. Read through the link I provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope you find this information helpful.

Could be a failure of the inlet control valve.
This is located inside and the hose connectors of the machine are actually part of the valve assembly.
They are normally held in by only one or two screws accessible outside the housing but pull the AC plug, and drop the disconnected hoses into a pail or other container.
You will have to remove the back panel to do the swap.
These aren't expensive, so replacing it on pure speculation won't cost a great deal of time or money. Many machines use the same part but have your machine model number handy when you call.
You can buy them anywhere that repairs appliances or, if you have one in your area, Johnstone Supply will have them 20-40% cheaper than dealers. Check for a listing them in the white pages or on line.
If you replace it and still have the problem, the program/timer assembly will need replacing and this is much more costly.
