The water won't stop filling up. The water overfilled and went all over the floor. In order for me to shut it off I had to turn off the water from the pipe in the wall. I had to manually move the nob to the drain and spin cycle for it to drain.

Re: Water won't stop filling up
There is a fault in the pressure switch, all machine have a pressure switch, this is normally a part about 5 to 8 cms in diameter and about 3 to 5 cms thick with a small pipe running down to the bottom of the drum or some part quite low on the machine that holds water. maybe a drain pipe
the pressure switch is located near the top of the machine inside the cabinet somewhere you should be easily able to get to with the lid or back off
THIS THIN PIPE could be BLOCKED or has been damaged, it works by the weight of the water pushing air up this pipe to activate the switch,
if the machine has been laid down or tipped up it can sometimes be reset by draining every bit of water from the machine, first by pumping the normal way, then unplug from mains and remove a pipe from the pump and drain the last bit out, this sometimes lets the pipe reset itself
best of luck,

The float on the water level shut off valve is probally stuck and not telling the washer that its full and to turn off the water. once thats fixed it will probally cycle normally. Try it on half load and see if the water stops at the correct spot.
The possibility is faulty water inlet valve.The valve lets the water to enter the machine.But if this valve is got weak/faulty then it will not stop the water from entering.If the water fill vale is checked ok then other possibility is faulty water fill valve switch.The switch detects the required water in the washing machine and shuts the fill valve off,but if the switch is faulty then it will not shut the water fill valve off and this will not stop the water from filling and this overfills the water.So most cases the water fill valve is faulty and it has to be replaced.But if the fill valve is checked ok then other possibility is faulty water fill valve switch.
It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub.

Keep updated if any more queries.Thanks.
for using FixYa. Overfilling in your washer occurs mainly due to two things:
water inlet valve going bad and/or the water level switch. If the water inlet
valve has gone bad it won’t be able to shut off even when the electricity has
been turned off. If the issue is with the water level switch then it won’t tell
the water to shut off and the machine will overflow as this switch is to sense
the water level in the clothes tub. However, with that being said it seems that
you’ll need to replace the water inlet valve. Please do rate the solution if
the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
1 of two problems happened. 1) either the water level sensor went bad. Which tells the water inlet valve when to shut off and the machine to start operating. 2) The water inlet valve has failed. This comes from the water hose and fills the washing machine.
FL" flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. This could just be a fluke, or you could have a possible bad pressure switch that is not shutting off the water supply correctly. In addition, fill valves have been known to short out causing water to constantly fill in the wash tub. Lastly, your household water pressure could be too low and won't shut the fill valves off properly. Inlet water pressure should be a minimum of 10-20 psi.
With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.
