hello, I have a whirlpool ultimate care ii, model number lsq8243hz0, and the cold water will not stop filling the washer. it just won't shut off... causing it to overfill. so I switched the hoses at the taps, and set the washer to warm, on fill and rinse.... any ideas why the water will not stop coming? auto shut off broken? simple fix? or big deal?

do you have to shut the water off at the house to stop it or if you unplug the machine does it stop?
