Sounds like the water valve needs replacing.

As a double check unplug the unit, if it still fills then it needs replacing for sure.

NYbob,

You'll need to replace the fill valve on the back of the washer. The valve diaphram is not sealing when it suts down and water dripps into the wash tub.

Good Luck,
