Lg washer overflowing

I washed a load of clothes, it ran and shut off. When I went to the utility room the next morning the washer was off, but the tub was overflowing & water in the floor. 
We got that cleaned up & tried it again. The washer ran, filled all the way up to the top but washed, drained & kicked off. When we opened the lid, there was still water streaming down the sides of the tub. We had to shut the water off to the washer in order to keep it from overflowing.
Any ideas on how to fix this?

Hello Rhicks456.  Welcome to the Community!

The most likely culprit to cause this problem is a failed water inlet valve.  Home Depot has an appliance parts website which also includes repair videos and symptom diagnosis features.  You can find it here:
