Could possibly be that the water level switch in the console has gone bad. Sometimes the small hose that connects the basket and the switch can come off, causing the overfill. Sounds like maybe the water switch has gone bad though if I were to guess at it. If it goes bad, it will send the timer a signal that its full, when its not. Could also be a bad timer, but that only happens on rare occasions, but it does happen. Let me know how it goes or if you need break down instructions, etc. Jim

mostly likely your pressure switch has gone bad or the hose has come loose from the pressure switch. open access to the console. your pressure switch is the water level. if the hose is attached, then the switch itself is bad. Joe

Remove the front panel by using a putty knife to depress the retaining clips at the seam where it meets the washer top. (one on each side) Take the thin hose off the lower left side of the outer tub and clean it out. A short cut would be to cut off an inch and a half of it, but that's a one time fix, then the hose starts getting too short. To help prevent re-occourance, run a small hot load with a couple cups of bleach (no clothes) every few months. Make sure to rinse the tub on the largest level to prevent bleach damage to your next wash load.

I think that from time to time your water inlet valve is sticking and not cutting off. This can be caused by sediment in the water or wear on the valve. The cold water valve is the one which usually sticks. The valve is on the back where the water hose connects to the washer. Replace it or flush and blow it out and make sure the wire strainer is in the other end of hose.

When you replaced the pressure switch, did you fully test the pressure switch hose?
Here's a similar posting that explains a potential issue and how to troubleshoot:
I highly recommend doing a diagnostic test because it's free and easy. Most of the time, the washer will self-diagnose. Check out that posting for instructions on how to do the tests.
