If the washer keeps filing and it never stops and never overflows, your drain hose is to blame. If the drain hose isn't routed properly, it will keep siphoning the water out as it's filling. The drain hose needs to raise up to the top of the washer before going down into the stand pipe on your house. Make sure the hose is not shoved down too far as well. The drain hose should only go about 8" into the stand pipe. Zip tie the hose to one of the fill hoses or something else to make sure the hose can't fall out or fall down further over time causing this same issue you're experiencing now or a flood.

By run water you mean that it's filling with water? And does it overfill if you let it? If not, then the drain hose is definitely your problem.
And it doesn't overfill? Then the drain hose is your problem as I mentioned before.
If it was filling with water constantly, it would flood your house if there were any other thing causing it to keep filling other than the drain hose siphoning the water out.
OK well that makes a world of difference if it does overfill---that isn't a drain hose issue then. I asked if it overfilled or mentioned that this was only the case if it did NOT overfill about 3 times prior and you never said anything until just now.
If the washer does overflow, you either have a sticking water valve on your washer, or the pressure switch isn't reading the water level properly. The way to know which one is your issue is to wait until it should not be filling anymore and it's still filling. Then just turn the dishwasher off. Does the water stop? If not, then you need a new electronic water valve because the valve is sticking open. If the water does stop, then you need to replace the pressure switch sensor.
You'll need the correct model number to order either part and the number you have listed is a part number, not a model number. The model number would be located under the lid down near the hinge (not on the lid itself). It'll be tucked up underneath and very difficult to see.
Yes, I know it's clothes washer. I'm sorry I used the word "dishwasher" once. And that sounds like a bad control board you have if it WILL shut off by unplugging the washer but won't shut off by turning the washer off.
Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open. Is there anything else I can help you with?
