You must have necessary tools available with you to replace washers after fixed time period.

After flushing, if the water continues to flow into the toilet bowl, then you must lift the lid from the cistern to check what the problem is.
With lid off, try to flush your toilet to check the water level. If you find it below water line then inspect the water valve and turn it fully on.
