Kmartin-

My guess would be this http://www.appliancepartspros.com/pa...ra m_id=85069

This is what tells the electrical system to shut off the water valves. Could be the switch itself or a break in the tube that feeds it the pressure signal. No pressure signal from a breached tube means "I'm not full yet, keep filling".

Best of Luck to You,

Steve

If you cut the washer off and the water stops take Prof. Maneuverís advice but if you cut off the washer and water continues to run replace the water inlet valve. Washer Repair Guide

Concurr. "Cut off" meaning remove electrical power, generally pull the plug out.

Thanks everyone. My husband found that the pressure hose became disconnected. He reconnected & now it is working properly. Thanks again

Default Clean the "Air Dome"

I had the same issue with overfilling. I replaced the water level switch & tubing w/o improvement. Then I disconnected the clear tube at that switch tried blowing in it. No air movement AT ALL. Blowing harder I felt a slight give and then a little air movement. I looked at the "Air Dome" which is on the lower right rear of the tub. It appeared to be discolored on the inside by a build-up of soap scum, lint etc. As the air dome is fused onto the tub and non-removable, I tried cleaning it.
I borrowed a real small funnel (with wife's approval) using it with the old clear tubing. Poured some"CLR" lime scale and soap scum remover down into the air dome and waited 1/2 hour. Then slowly poured in a lot of hot water to flush it out. I repeated the application of CLR and hot water several times until the air dome was noticably clearer on the inside and there was no resistance when I blew into the tubing.
Rattached the new tubing, reassembled everything and tried it out. Water filled and SHUT OFF properly!!! Poured a few glugs of "CLR" into the water in the tub and ran a normal cycle to clean out any other built-up scum. Followed with a clear water load to rinse the machine throughly.
Will have to try to remember to run some "CLR" every few months and prevent future accumalation of soap scum/lint.
No air movement in the tubing means the water level switch is NOT getting the info it needs to determine when to shut off the water. So it just keeps on filling, the washer tub, the laundry floor, the hall, the entry etc.
Hope this helps someone else. And my thanks to all for the info I've gleaned from this forum in the past.
