Searched the boards and didn't see this one... everybody else has problems with it filling.  Mine won't quit filling!  So, I now have sheetrock, etc. ripped out due to the flood.  She's been a good washing machine and I hate to scrap her, but she can't do me like this again.  What would keep the machine from shutting off when it reaches the correct water level?  I'm guessing it's the water level fill switch (W10339326).  Is that correct and is there anything else I should check? Thanks!

 


Also, should probably add:

 

After the machine flooded, I ran cycle again to make sure it wasn't a one time occurence... it wasn't.  It does shut off from the timer know though, I don't have to close the water supply valve or unplug the machine.

  Yes, most likely the pressure switch or the pressure hose is clogged or has a leak in it. Remove cabinet to inspect hose which runs from the air dome on the lower right side of the tub up to the switch. With cabinet off and washer empty, disconnect hose from air dome, set washer to fill. Blowing into hose, you should hear a click in the switch and water should shut off.

Might want to make sure the fill valve is closing if you don't find the others to not be the problem.

You can check by setting the water level to low and taking a meter and see if the valve is still getting voltage when the water rises above half a tub full.

When the voltage turns off so should the valve.

  He said it does shut off when turning timer off or unplugging machine so I think the valve is fine.

I added the other after my original post so it may not have come across on your email originally.  I do appreciate the help.  It's about time to head to the house and start tearing it apart.
