its sounds like one of two things , you either have a bad water inlet valve or your fill tube that goes to water level control. does it start agitating and keep filling? if it does its probably your valve is sticking open. hope this helps Byran , feedback is always welcome. thanks again

Reply to a1speedyappliance's Post: yes it starts agitating and keep filling. i'm new to washing machines. the last technician said it might be my valve.. i appreciate all answers and thank you very much but what do i do, as an average joe?...if the valve is stuck open..
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.

okay you wnat to start by telling me do you have to the water off at faucets to make water stop comming in? your water valve is electronic and its located right where you hook up warter hoses to machine on back . you may be able to take valve off through the back ( it depends on machine ) if there is screws holding a plate on back of machine where valve is you can take hoses off and remove screws and pull valve and plate out back , there will be a smaller hose held on by a small clamp and there will be four wires also. remove and replace with new valve. if there is no way of getting it out the back you may have to take washer top off. let me know.you can go to www.pcappliancerepair.com and look at parts . you need water inlet valve. hope this helps.thanks Bryan, p.s. feedback is welcome and apprciated.
