It would narrow down the problem if you would do this- - when it starts to fill with water in the manner you described, immediately un plug the machine and see if it stops filling. Report back with findings. Thanks for using justanswer.
You need to replace the water valve. ( the part in washer where your fill hoses connect to ). I looked up your model and there are 3 versions of this part depending on the series of your washer. So to get the correct one call MARCONE APPL PARTS ( 1-800-392-7745 ) and give them the model, serial # XXXXX it should say series 83 ,84,85,86,or 87 on your nameplate. They can then determine the correct part. This part is around $35.00 to $40.00 depending on which one it takes. Thanks for using justanswer.
Yes , I think so it'sfairly easy to get to and only requires basic tools . Draw yourself a picture of how everything goes together before removing old one if that helps.
