Mamie, The pressure switch/water level switch faulty or the hose connecting switch to the drum may be off/clogged/ or have a hole in it, or there could be a fault in the water fill valve solenoid which may be stuck open from debri or just worn out. Check out the following vid. for more instruction on how to diagnose wash machine over filling. Hope this helps. Good luck.

To add to Pfaff excellent answer:

The water pressure to the water inlet valve might be too low. The water inlet valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to shut off properly. If the water inlet valve does not get enough pressure, the valve may not close fully after the power is shut off. As a result, water can leak into the washer and cause it to overflow. Check the water pressure to determine if it is sufficient.

mayer, your input in diagnosing washer overfill, appreciated.

The YouTube videos are great! I've got sufficient pressure because I took out the little screen filter which was almost totally clogged. But it still fills all the time-- likely the inlet valve circuitry. I'll check that tomorrow.
