Question about Washing Machines
This is likely due to a foreign object caught in the solenoid valve mechanism - which is usually located at - or very near - the point that the supply water hose attaches. It could also be a faulty seal inside the solenoid valve as well. Either way, changing the solenoid valve will usually solve the problem. Many solenoid valves assemblies control both hot and cold water supply lines, but if yours has separate solenoids - you should determine if it is hot or cold water that is leaking past the seal - and get the appropriate replacement part. Once changed out, the leak should stop.
The washer's water supply should be shut off before the supply hoses whenever not in use. This is especially important if using the cheap rubber hoses instead of the metal mesh type. The hose will eventually fail, and when it does, the water will continue to flow onto the floor until it is shut off by a person.
I hope this helps!
