You are right. Sounds like the washer is not being told to shut off. If the washer will stop filling when the power is shut off to it: Open the front panel by using a putty knife to push in on the clips about two inches in from each side at the seam of the front panel and the washer top. Tilt washer front panel forward and lift off bottom pegs. Pull the tube off the outer tub at the left side, cut off and inch and a half, poke a thin wire into the hole on the tub end and remove, then put the tube back on. (do this with the tub empty) You can only do this one or two times before the tube starts to get too short, so from now on, every two or three months, fill the machine to the lowest water level with hot water and several cups of bleach and run a cycle, including rinses, to help prevent the goop from reforming in the tube area again.
If machine still fills when power is off, replace water valve.

It sounds like it could be the lid switch, check to make sure the lid switch is clicking when you close the lid.

If when the machine is flooding if you turn off power to the machine and it continues to fill: replace water inlet valve. If flooding water stops filling when power is interupted: clean out the end of the water level switch tube where it connects to the outer wash tub.

hi If the washer won't fill or fills very slowly, if it overfills, or if the water is the wrong temperature, the water inlet valves could be faulty. These components are easy to locate and very easy to replace, at little cost. When you suspect an inlet valve is faulty, first check to make sure the water faucets are fully turned on and properly connected to the hot and cold inlets of the valves. Then check the screens in the valves; if they're clogged, clean or replace them. If water doesn't enter the tub, set the temperature control to the HOT setting. If there is no water, set the control to the WARM setting. If all that comes out is cold water, the hot-water inlet valve is faulty. Reverse the procedure to test the cold-water valve, setting the control first on COLD and then on WARM. If the tub overfills, unplug the washer. If water still flows into the tub, the valve is stuck open. In any of these cases, the valves should probably be replaced. To check the valve assembly:

Step 1: Remove the back service panel and disconnect the hot-water and cold-water hoses to the valves.
Step 2: Remove the hoses connected to the valves inside the cabinet. Also disconnect the wires from the terminals. Back out the screws holding the valves to the machine. The inlet valves have solenoids (a coil of wire that carries a current) inside the housing. These can be tested, but chances are the valves are simply worn out.
Step 3: Tap the solenoids with a screwdriver handle. If this doesn't work, replace the entire inlet valve assembly. Repairs usually cost more than a new part. Make sure the replacement valve assembly is exactly the same type as the old one. Install it in reverse order of the way you disconnected the old one.

sounds like blocked pump or hole in the discharge pipe

GE WHRE5260E Top... | Answered on Aug 27, 2008

it sounds like the basket is not locked when it is agitating, if so the water will climb the wall during the wash cycle and leak out of the overflow (which is the plastic tube you described). if this is the case, it is a transmission brake problem. it can be fixed by a professional, but you might want to look into buying a new machine.

take a butter knife and release the two clips on the top of the front panel (look in the seem between the top and front panel and push the butter knife directly into the clips), this will release the front panel from the machine. then you can see where the water is coming from.

it sounds like the bleach fill line. at the top of the washer is a bleach fill cup, it might attach to it. this black bleach fill line attaches to the bleach fill cup to the bottom of the tub.
