Question about Washing Machines
This is most likely caused by a faulty water level switch. The water level switch is a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level rises, pressure increases on the air in the tube and when the pressure reaches a certain level, it signals the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to start the agitate cycle. Make sure there are no obstructions in the tube. If the switch is defective, it will have to be replaced. Hope this helped and best wishes.

I had this problem and found the tube had come away from the tub. Poor clamp is correct (above)! Put the tube back on the nipple, attached a new, better clamp - good to go!

Switch.Check the tube connected to the water level switch
and the tub. If the tube has a hole or **** then the pressure will not
activate the switch. The tube came of my tub (poor clamp) and water continues to flow..
