Close the water supply valve and allow the machine to completely drain the water from the tub. Turn off the machine and disconnect it from the power outlet. Open the water supply valve. Replace the water inlet valve if water drips into the tub when the machine is off.

Start a new cycle if the machine stops filling when it is off. The control board or the water level switch is malfunctioning if it keeps filling even during the spin cycle. Indicate the model number for proper troubleshooting and repair assistance.

Your Fill valve Solenoid has failed.
Some machines have an all-in-one type fill valve
(hot and cold on the same valve - but different solenoids)
some have seperate bodies for the hot and cold.

SOURCE: The washer keeps filling (water keeps running)

Could be a failure of the inlet control valve. This is located inside and the hose connectors of the machine are actually part of the valve assembly. They are normally held in by only one or two screws accessible outside the housing but pull the AC plug, and drop the disconnected hoses into a pail or other container. You will have to remove the back panel to do the swap.
These aren't expensive, so replacing it on pure speculation won't cost a great deal of time or money. Many machines use the same part but have your machine model number handy when you call.
You can buy them anywhere that repairs appliances or, if you have one in your area, Johnstone Supply will have them 20-40% cheaper than dealers. Check for a listing them in the white pages or on line.
If you replace it and still have the problem, the program/timer assembly will need replacing and this is much more costly.

Cold water won't stop before rinse cycle

if it fails to stop running only at the rinse part of the cycle it is probably in the timer as the solenoid valve has to cut the water off when the washer fills for the wash cycle too. fills for wash cycle and cuts off water, washes and drains, refills for rinse cycle and water just keeps running? does this every time you run it? that's in the timer. bad solenoid (water inlet valve) would keep running even on wash fill up. hope this helps.

2 problems 1st is the washer continues to fill with water when i put in a new load second is it wont spin

If the water keeps filling without cutting off, you either have a faulty inlet solenoide or your pressure hose and or pressure switch needs checking.

To isolate the acutal problem, start the machine on a new cycle. Change the water level to minimum or low before you start. Let the machine fill up. Keep checking the water intake as it fill up. Once the water level goes over the half way mark in your tank, if the machine starts its wash action then your pressure hose and switch are o.k. as they have signalled to the timer that the water level selected, has been reached.

However if the machine keeps filling up even though the wash action has started, then you have a faulty inlet solenoide/valve. Turn off water at the tap and get the valve replaced.

Washer trips circuit while filling tub

Sound like the inlet valve coil may be shorted. Remove console and check wires from water valve to control. If wires look ok, the inlet valve has a problem

Series 70 washer will not aggitate, spin or drain

Even "empty" - there is still water in the tub to keep the seals moist.

Let it thaw completely - or put some hot water in the tub to thaw.

You may already have damaged the coupling/drive belt if it was frozen.
