1) the water inlet valve that the hoses from the house plumbing attach to is sticking open,when it sticks it will stick open regardless if thier is power to the machine or not,so to determine if that is the problem,start the washer and quickly unplug it,if the water continues to fill, that valve is sticking
2) the water level switch is defective,do the same as far as starting it,if the fill stops when power disconected it's the water level switch that is in need of replacement
Good luck, i hope this helps and if it does please give me a 4 thumbs up rating
water level pressure switch tube is clogged with lint or bladder in pressure switch is bad. disconnect power to washer open timer console look for a clear rubber hose disconnect fron switch and blow in tube a couple times reconnect tube and put unit on drain and spin for a second then retrying unit for water level fill put washer on small load water size and test if it continues to fill replace pressure switch...
If it looks like the water overflowed then it could be a bad pressure switch the way to test it out is just fill it with water and set the washer on small load if it continues to put in water past the small load setting then you have a bad pressure switch
if all it does is fills with water it may be a bad timer or the motor has gone bad. turn it to spin cycle and turn it on you can check for voltage at the motor . if you have voltage then you have a bad motor if you have no voltage then you have a bad timer on your washer . if it just fills and fills till it is about to overflow then you have a bad water level switch or tube . just a few things to check
This is most likely a damaged pipe going to the low pressure sensor. This sensor determines when to turn water off by the pressure built up in a tube. If there is a damaged pipe - it wil overflow.
Turn off and disconnect machine, then remove access pannel to inspect all small bore pipes for damage. Check pressure valve for correct operation.
If it leaks at times other than filling, and water level seems ok, then it could be a damaged top or bottom seal that needs identifying and replacing.
If it leaks constantly it could equally be a damaged rubber pipe between drum and pump.
You really need to remove an access pannel - and just observe operation without putting your fingers in thereto spot it.
older machine would have been easier to fix ..remove front ck small hose to tub left side remove hose and clean crud from end as much as possible if still overflowing replace water level control..new machine may be timer or lid switch not closing properly remove front to acess lid switch on right side
If you unplug the machine and the water still comes in, you have a bad Water Inlet Valve. If when you turn the machine on at in overfills and you can stop the water by turning off the washer timer then you have one of a couple possible issues.
First, you pressure sensing tube could be clogged
Second, you just plain have a defective pressure sensing switch.
