kenmore series 90 washing machine won't stop filling

Kenmore Series 90 residential washing machine. 12 years old. During rinse cycle the supply water will not shut off. Have to turn off via manual shut-off valve. Is there a solenoid/relay that controls the water fill level?

If the water will not shut off by pushing the timer in or by unplugging the washer and the only way to stop the washer from filling is by turning the water supply faucet off then the failure is the water inlet valve. If the water will shut off by pushing the timer in or by unplugging the washer then the likely failure is the water level pressure switch or the water level pressure switch hose has an air leak.

Without knowing the specific model number of your Kenmore washer I will not be able to provide part numbers or specific instructions. Resubmit your question with the model number and additional details for model specific troubleshooting and repair instructions.
