It sounds like you have a bad pressure switch. There should be a tube that goes from the drum to a switch that tells the machine to quit filling. If that switch works then the board might be bad. Hope this helps.

Water keeps filling even when not in use

hi Jeremy.
Why does my washing machine keep filling up with water when not in use? Ensure that the waste pipe of the washing machine is higher at one point than the drum of the machine, this will prevent water running back into the machine. Normally this would fill the machine with dirty water. Or it could be a faulty water inlet valve, which will fill the machine with clean water.22 Sep 2007

There is a tube next to the drum that senses the water level, take the screws out of the back of the machine near the top and then you can lift the top off over the drum, look for the tube and see if it is plugged with lint dirt or softener. Clean it out. If that is not the problem then check the sensor that it plugs into to be sure it is not bad

My bush washer keep s filling up with water in the drum when the washer isn't in use

Seems that your inlet valves are leaking when the unit is off. Replace inlet valve and that should stop the issue.

Hot water stops filling too soon.

Fill setting has to be adjusted and the belt is slipping on the spin cycle and not generating enough centrifugal force to get the water out.

I bought a top load washing machine model number WF T7239 UL on 05Nov2010. Water sensor does not seem to work. Water just keeps filling up the drum and starts overflowing once filled.

Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.

If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Water will not stop filling

Not a lot to go on from your description, but most times this is because the small pipe connecting the drum chamber to the pressure switch has become blocked due to either dirt / fluff / soap scrum, or a combination of these. The pressure switch measures how much water has entered the machine by way of water pressure - the more water in = greater pressure.
To find this pipe you will need to dismantle the machine enough to see the pressure switch, the connecting pipe, and where it connects to the drum chamber. Pull off the pipe and check for blockage in the pipe, the connection to the drum chamber, or in really sever cases, the switch.
A manual would be a great help, most popular models are covered by the Haynes washing machine manual, but even if the exact model isn't, it can still give enough info to get a machine apart.

Samsung Silver Care washing machine

Sounds like your inlet valve is stuck Open ( meaning it wont shut off incoming water ) That may be defective or the control to it may be at fault.. Try unplugging the washer ..and see if the water still continues to fill up the drum? If that happens, then your valve is probably in need of replacement.. Typically, when de-energized..they close and stop water from entering the system.. Hope that helps

My drum of my washing machine fills with water when it is not in use. i have moved the outlet pipe many times but it keeps on doing it. should there be a cut off valve to stop the water returning?

You probably have a bad water valve that the fill hoses attach too at the back of the washer, if the solenoid is stuck open the water won't stop unless you shut it off at the wall.
