Looks like it is the tub seal... please look at this pic to verify.  The water runs down these rail/runners that come from the center of the washed where the shaft is.  Tilt the tub a direction and the water runs down the rail/runner on that side.  These rails have a valley that the water travels down.

Only thing I can figure is the seal is toast.

Big question.  The video does a GREAT job of detailing what I need to do.  However, are there any other parts that I should replace seeing how I am going this far?

Thanks,

How old is the washer? Had you been having any other problems with it?

Washer is 17 years old.  I replaced a timer YEARS ago, agitator dogs a month ago.  Everything looks pretty good on the bottom.  I was thinking of the clutch pads.

Being 17 years old it could probably use a new set of clutch pads. I can't think of anything else other then that.

Buttoned everything back up together cause we needed to run a load or two through.  Ugh... tub wouldn't stop filling with water because bonehead here didn't see the fill tube feel off the sensor.  Fortunately I caught it before it overflowed.

Note to my self:  test washer cycles without clothes in the washer!

Attrached the hose and started to run a load again and the dang thing still won't stop filling.  Open it back up, hose attached securely, check, no crimp in the hose all the way to the tub fiting, check, tube attached to tub fitting secure, check.

I cannot imagine what could have gone wrong.  Did the controller (menaing the electronic part of the fill control) die?  All wires appear to secure.  I will reseat connectors as last effort.

Thoughts!

OBTW:  I agree on the clutch pads.

 Make sure tub has no water in it by spinning water out of tub.Pull the plastic tube off pressure switch and blow down into tub.Put tube back on and spin it again then try it on wash.If that don't work possible pin hole in tube.Also when its about to overflow unplug washer and if water still comes in bad water valve.Possible bad pressure switch but make sure that hose is good and tight and no pin hole leaks.http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-water-level-pressure-353244-ap3098609.html

There is a air dome on the side of the outer tub that the hose from the water level switch attaches to.
Sometimes junk from soap buildup or hard water residue can plug it up. You may have to remove the basket so you can see the inside hole that goes to that air dome to make sure it's all clear.

Got it... thanks guys.  Never really found anything in the tube but I did remove, inspect and replace. Oh, I also blew into it as suggested so I really don't know what fixed it but it fills perfectly now.

Yeah even on these older washers its a good idea to use a washer cleaner like a gallon of  vinegar and hot water and fill tub up and let sit over night and then let it complete the cycle the next day once a month.Good practice for when you buy a new washer and have to do it.
