I assume your referring to a clothes washer, if that's the case then here's what going on... you need to replaced the hot/cold inlet valve assembly of your washing machine... read on:
The hot and cold water supplies to your washing machine are connected to an inlet valve that is controlled electronically by an internal solenoid that opens and closes the valve based on your wash settings. It is essentially a "mixing valve" that will let only hot, only cold, or both valves on the assembly open based on what temperature the water needs to be for your wash cycle.
The drum is filling up and overflowing because the internal solenoid of your inlet valve has gone bad. The solenoid is not fully closing the valve when your wash cycle is over.
Replacement is fairly straightforward. Turn off the hot and cold water to the appliance and remove the fill tubes, pull out your machine so you can get behind it and remove the back panel of your washer exposing the inlet valve assembly. Youll see some wires going to the inlet valve body, make note of their location or tape them so you know where they go, now simply unscrew the valve assembly and insert the new one. attach the wires, reinstall the back of your machine, hook up the fill tubes to it (making sure you have HOT/COLD oriented correctly on the valve assembly), and open the water valves. You are done, and your machine will no longer fill by itself!
