Good morning and Welcome to Justanswer,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your new Hoover washing machine.

The appliance was turned on overnight or it was off ?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Off

OK, and it was plugged in ?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
plugged in

Thank you.

I am afraid, the inlet valve and/or control board is faulty, and will need replacement.

That is the reason it filled overnight by itself.

You should contact the dealer from where you purchased this washing machine, and immediately get it replaced with another one.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
