The soleniod valve is bad.... here is a tip that will help...

same part different name
the pressure is obtained by as the water level rises in the tub the air trapped in a small hose attached to the switch increases in pressure to a point where it over comes the spring tension set and that stops power to the inlet solenoid
Now you can have 2 problems
the nose is leaking air
the inlet water solenoid is not shutting off the water supply

Put old coupler back on transmission shaft. Can you now turn coupler? You should not be able to. If you can, grooves in coupler are stripped out. Replace coupler. Part # WH49X10042

The drain hose outlet must be located higher that any expected water level in the tub. If too low, gravity drains the tub as it is filled. Extend the (a) drain pipe up to the proper level, even if you are using a floor drain to carry away the water. Hope this helps!

the wigwag switch may need to be serviced.
have someone come look at it and watch what they do taking it apart...
when they have it apart and tell you what is wrong... and what they are going to charge to fix it, if the repair is more than $50 tell them you will just fix it yourself.(the part is $23 at the local applience parts center)

It's very likely you need to replace the agitator dogs; it's easy to do if you're handy. I have done it twice and it only took about 40 minutes from start to finish (once you have the parts of course). Be sure to get the correct ones for your make and model and opt for OEM parts if you can.
You can find them with an internet search:

unplug the power cord to reset the control board, If that doesn't work the board is probably bad. It will have to be checked with a multimeter.

Does the washer continue to fill if you turn the dial to the off position or does it keep filling when starting a load?
