The other item to check would be your water inlet valve. Check it for continuity with a multi meter it should show Ohms or a closed circuit. To test it when water is overflowing unplug the unit and see if it still overflows or continues to fill. If it stops when unplugged. Then it is not a water inlet problem but an electrical signal problem going to ur water inlet valve. Possibly from the panel or board. You can also do a live volt test to see if it is getting the full 120 current, but be sure to unplug unit before testing as this is a live test.
Also another trick to check the water valve, is to first cut the water off and remove the hoses off the back of the washer. Then one at a time point the hoses inside the washer tub and turn the water back on. If you don't have good water pressure, turn the water back off and remove the strainer that should be in one end of the hose. Inspect the strainer to see if it is stopped up, clean it and reinstall it. Now repeat this test. If you have good water pressure now, reinstall hose and your problem is fixed

By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

SOURCE: washer won't fill

On the drain valve there must be some dirt that does not let the valve close or the valve must be defective and needs to be replaced. By the way you did not mention the make of the washer.

SOURCE: My washer fills with water and keeps filling

The problem is simple and easy to fix. Your washer has a tubing which runs from the base of the tub to the water pressure switch. It might have vibrated loose from the switch, or their can be some sediment in the tub. Blow out the tubing and reattach it securely to the switch and pump out the water in the tub. Then try it again. I wrote an article about this:

Water keeps running after it fills up, won't shut off


On the outside of washing machine tubs there is a rubber hose that goes from the tub to the level sensing unit in the control hood. I have seen these fall off. If it hasnt make sure that it is clear of debris and water. If all is ok here is a link that tells you how to check your level switch, http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/washer/check/waterlevel.php
Good Luck

Will not fill with water but works on spin cycle


If your washer won't fill with water, but works in the spin cycle then the washer is sensing that water is in the tub. If there isn't water in the tub, then it is probably a sensor. If there is water but the spin cycle doesn't get it out, then look at the pump or control board.

Over filling


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Overfilling in your washer occurs mainly due to two things: water inlet valve going bad and/or the water level switch. If the water inlet valve has gone bad it won’t be able to shut off even when the electricity has been turned off. If the issue is with the water level switch then it won’t tell the water to shut off and the machine will overflow as this switch is to sense the water level in the clothes tub. However, with that being said it seems that you’ll need to replace the water inlet valve. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Sounds like the water level sensing sub-system is malfunctioning. If you want to pursue this further, let me know.

I have a Plain Hotpoint washer,and it keeps filing with water on large load,but will stop on small load.Will continue to fill even with it unplugged, what could it be?


No it will not keep filling when it is unplugged.
The problem is probably due to a sticking water level switch, or a partial blockage in the water level sensing system. \you will probably need to call an engineer.

check your hose from the side of the tub all the way up to the water selector knob. if its loose or has even a pin sized hole in it, it will cause the maching not to sense it has reached the level selected.
