Question about Washing Machines
I would suspect a faulty water level switch. This is a diaphragm type device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level it activates the switch to shut off the water. Make sure there is no damage to or obstruction of the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking continuity. A lack of continuity would indicate a bad switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

All DW's have an electro-magnetically operated water inlet shut off valve.
If the valve leaks, the DW will overflow when not in use.
Also check that the electrical connectors are tight & show no signs overheating.
There is also 1 or more, float operated cutoff switch(s).
They are anti-overflow switches that make the water inlet shut off valve close to maintain the correct water level.
They are float operated, if the float-switch binds or sticks, the water level can be allowed to get too high & result in an overflow when in use. So they are usually a good place to start solving the problem when the DW is "leaking". Of course check all hoses & connections as well, a leaking connection usually has a crust or marks from leaking.

The inner tub on some machines does rotate very slowly while filling to assist with the even distibution of the load. If the agitator is turning back & forth while in fill mode, you could have a timer or transmission problem. You need a tech.
