I have the same problem on my washer and in my case it is the valve
that the water lines attach too on the washer. The cold water side
will not shut off so that side is stuck open. The hot water side works
fine and will shut off once the washer fills to the proper level.
When I called the parts place, they tried to sell me the water level
switch too but I didn't fall for that. I had a hell of a time finding
the water fill valve in the exploded view of machine parts but I
finally found the right one in the "body" section not the "water
I have shut off valves in the water lines right before they attach to
the machine so I just turn the water on and off there until I have
time to fix it.
Others have already mentioned a possible faulty electrically controlled
water fill valve but when you replaced the water level switch, did you
make sure that the tube going to the switch was not clogged? If the air
line is stopped up, the switch will not work. Whenever I replace any
diaphragm operated switch, I always blow through the tubing to make sure
it's clear of debris.
