A model number may also help others help you.

I found your post a bit confusing.
Was the original problem that it was filling too high but did shut off so you replaced the parts and the problem was the same?
If this was the case then I am stumped.

The part where you say "After repair the water does shutoff but it fills the tub too high." seems to imply that the original problem was that it would not shut off.
If this is the case then check that the hose is the same length as the original hose.
The water level switch is actually a pressure switch.
As the water rises in the hose it compresses the air in the hose. When the pressure in the hose reaches the set point pressure of the switch it shuts the water off.
So if the hose is longer than the original, the water will have to rise higher to get to the set point pressure of the switch.

Do not make it shorter than the original hose as there must be some slack in it so that the hose does not pull off of the tub or the switch when the unit is agitating or spinning.

the small load fills tub about 1/3 of the way or to the 3rd row of holes. I am adjusting the hose length right now. Will report back once complete

I shortened the length of the hose. Had no effect, also replacing the water level switch and tubing has left me with the same issue as before I replaced them. The tub fills to the top then shuts off. Is there another repair I can do to fix this? Thanks for all your guys help.

I cannot find any tech data on this unit.
With luck someone else can.

I wanted to see the water level switch but could not find a picture of it.
The reason was that some switches are adjustable and may be a last resort way for you to get the unit running.
This would be a work around as there must be something else wrong in the unit but I am stumped without any tech data.

Change the first character from a Y to a W in your search. The first character in the model number indicates the brand name the washer is marketed under. Y is for RCA, W is for GE, V is for Hotpoint...etc.

Here's the switch.

Disconnect the switch hose from the air dome on the side of the tub. Start the washer and let it fill a little. Before the level reaches the air dome blow gently into the hose (just enough to activate the switch, too hard and you can damage the diaphram in the switch). This should activate the switch and turn off the water valves. If it does, the air dome is probably gunked up. If it doesn't work, pull the brown wire off the water level switch while it's filling. If it doesn't stop filling, the water valve is sticking or there is a problem with the pressure switch bypass contacts in the timer. If the terminal lug on the brown wire is uninsulated, use insulated pliers and wear gloves.
