Hi Ted,

The problem is going to be the water valve, the pressure switch or the tube that connects to the pressure switch. If you have to turn the water off to stop the water running into the washer then the water valve is bad. If all you have to do to stop the water is to cut the washer off then the problem is the pressure switch or the tube. Often the tube that connects to the switch will come off or break. Remove the case of the washer and look at the back bottom right hand side of the tub and see if the tub has came off and if not put it back on and your problem should be repaired.

This video shows how to remove the case of the machine.

Hi Sam,

The answer is pretty much the same only the video will not help you. If you have to turn the water off at the wall the problem is the water valve and if you can turn the washer off to stop the water the problem has something to do with the pressure switch. Before replacing the pressure switch there is a tube that connects between the tub and the switch, make sure that tube isn’t clogged, broken or cracked and if so repair it.
