If it had burst I think you'd know, as you'd hear alot of water and your house may be flooded (if a concrete floor).

It could be a blockage of some sort - the washer may have came away from the tap spindle. or the tap spindle may have snapped. Get a plumber or someone competent to strip tap down and investigate further.
