Question about Whirlpool LSQ8543J
Twice now my WP LSQ8543J has filled to the point of overflowing after the final rinse cycle. Water continues to pour into the bin (and out the bottom of the machine) even once the power is cut off to the machine. The first time it eventually stopped on its own (after flooding our garage). The last time it stopped shortly after the water was turned off to the machine. (I ran several successful loads between the two incidents.)
Your washing machine has a water level sensor. There is a tube that comes up from near the bottom of the tub. The pressure in the tube increases as the water level increases. This changes the state of the water level switch to full, which is the water level control switch, the terminals of which you'll find in the control cabinet, where the timer is. There are three wires connected to the switch, a common, a low level wire, and a full wire. If that switch fails to make contact at the full terminal, no other part of the cycle will occur. That switch has likely failed. The tube point of connection to the switch could be corroded and leaking, which would also cause this failure.

Replace the water valve where your hoses connect to the washer.
