SOURCE: GE Washer overflows
washing machines of any make or shape have a level sensor, this normally consists of a thin pipe from the lower end of the machine (where there is water) normally enters the bottom of the outer drum casing, this thin rubber or thin plastic pipe goes up to the top of the machine just inside the casing, it leads into a "pressure switch" a circular disc object about 50 cms in diameter on average, also this has about 4 to 6 wires on it, this thin pipe becomes blocked not allowing air to be forced up the tube into the switch, not switching the machine water flow off when it gets to the correct level empty the machine, drain off the water, unplug the power supply, and clear out this pipe, normally its congealed old soap powder, place pipe back as it was, checking for any leak holes in it, if damaged, replace it with new, run machine again to test long winded but i hope i have explained it thoroughly

SOURCE: Filling With Water
I recently had the same problem. I checked the end of the air hose coming from the tub. It had a tear in it right at the connection. I just cut off the hose at the tear and placed the hose back on the connection.

If it overflows from the tub then:
This can either be a fault in the fill sense tube( small tube connected to the bottom on the outer tub from the sensor at or near the top of the washer housing ) becoming blocked or broken or a fault with the sensor itself. This is inside of the machine and the lower cabinet will have to be opened to see it.
There should be two screws along the lower front edge of the washer cabinet. Remove these and the front of the cabinet will lift out towards you at a 45 degree angle an then unlatch. Unplug from power before opening the cabinet.
If it overfills from the drain hose:
then either the drain hose is too low and the water siphons out before it reaches the maximum or there is a tight seal at the drain hose to house drain port which will cause all the water to siphon out.

It will not be a sensor,,,it will be what is called a "Ball **** valve" and they are pretty cheap to replace.
This same valve is in your toilet tank.

there is a small tubing about 12 inches or so that connect from the water level dail to the tub of the washer. sometimes the clamp on there gets loose and that interfers with the communication. try changing the tubing and or just tighting the clamps. you will need to lift the top of the washer off to get to it.
hope this helps
