Re: Washer won't stop filling
The mixing valve that is part of the connector where the hose is attached has either failed or is disconnected electrically.
These are simple to replace and not too expensive.
You may have gotten some debris into the valve assembly which is being held open and is a sealed device.
If this is the case, it will probably not be removable since the valve is trying to close and will only open if voltage is applied.

Make sure your cold water tape is turned on and the screen in the water valve is not plugged up, it may be trying to fill with cold water and cant get any, try filling the washer with cold water on a "wash" cycle to confirm it it fills with "cold" then just the rince cycle ion the timer may be faulty and would need to be replaced
it sounds to me that the hoses are connected to the machine incorrectly. Typically if the plumber ran the water lines behind washer correctly the hot pipe is on the left and the cold pipe is on the right sometimes thats backward and be determined by touching hoses while filling on warm setting and see which hose feels hot. On the back of washer they where they connect hot goes on the bottom and cold on top
Turn off the water, remove the cold water hose at the back of the washer ... inside you will find a hose washer with a screen on it - remove and replace it. I believe you will discover the screen is clogged. While you have the hose disconnected, run some water into a bucket from the hose to clean it as well.
Could be either a bad lid switch or a bad water valve. Set the timer dial to SPIN and turn the machine on. If it spins the lid switch is OK. If it does not spin the lid switch must be replaced. Next,set the timer dial on a wash cycle and set the water temperature knob to COLD water. If it fills,the lid switch is bad. If it does not fill the water valve is bad or the cold screen filter is clogged. If the COLD does not fill,turn off the cold water faucet. Remove the cold water hose from the machine water valve and check for a clooged screen. If it does not fill with COLD water and the screen is clear,replace the water valve.
First - check the water inlet hose screen for calcium or rust build-up.
If cold water is filling slowly, take these steps:
Unplug the washer.
Turn off the cold water supply faucet.
Remove the fill hose connected to the back of the washer.
Checkthe fill screen on the cold water inlet valve for debris or depositsthat can restrict the water flow. If necessary, you can carefully pullthe screen out and clean it. Flush the inlet thoroughly and replace thescreen. NOTE: If debris makes it past this screen, it can cause thevalve to leak and cause a flood in your laundry room. Monitor thewasher for this type of problem is you pull the screen out and clean it.
Placethe end of the hose in a bucket and briefly turn on the faucet to checkfor proper pressure and flow from the cold water hose. If waterpressure from the cold inlet water hose is bad, check the hose forclogs. If the hose is okay, then I recommend calling a plumber to checkthe water supply to your washer cold water faucet.
If the above checks do not help you resolve the fill problem, you will likely need to replace the inlet fill valve.
Your cold water fill valve (mixer valve) solenoid has failed if after cleaning - the condition remains. CLICK HERE for a replacement part.

if you can turn the washer off while it is still filling. and the water continues to enter the machine you have a bad inlet valve.
Do me a favor turn the washer to fill, with the washer still running unplug from the wall. If the water is still entering the unit you have a bad inlet valve
you will need to replace fill valve where hoses connect probably has sand in valve especially if screens have been removed remove screws in rear of console lift and roll console back disconnect wire to lid switch remove clips om right and left rear corners cabinet lifts off disconnect hoses and wires 1 screw usually holds valve in postion
