Question about Washing Machines
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.

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.
