One problem we often find is worn out washer hoses. The manufacturer usually installs the cheaper rubber hoses with new washing machines. That type of hose wears out sooner than you would think and we recommend the braided hoses for replacement.
Using the better quality braided hose will protect you from leaks and floods. To turn off the water in the event of a flood locate the two emergency shut off valves. Turn both valves clockwise until they are snug. that will turn off the water and stop any leaking or flooding going on.
