Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
The problem is with the water valves.
For a quick fix just shut off the water hot and cold faucets connected to the washer. The problem is you water valve is bad and they can drip or downright just run wide open. A water valve is less than 20 bucks and east to replace. If it is a newer model then the cabinet is removed easily from the washer exposing the innards and it is an easy fix. If it is an older model Kenmore then you need to pop the top to get to the valve. In both cases the water hoses will need to be removed from the valve, unplug the harness and take the 5/16 screws loose and replace it with a new one. This should be an easy fix.
Type in your model number and look for your valve. http://panhandleparts.com/default.aspx
