Older steel tub GE. You may have a leak high on the tub where water is splashing out during fill, also possibly a leak near the "vacuum break" in the water inlet. Best advice is to pop the top up (two clips at the front, release with a putty knife) and observe the fill. The steel tub is bad for leaks and corrosion, the inner basket rubs on it during off balance conditions and destroys the enamel. These tubs have not been manufactured for a good number of years, you may be able to delay the inevitable by patching any leaks with a silicone and duct tape "sandwich" or some kind of epoxy.
