Whirlpool Ultimate Care II - overfilling

Do these washing machines have a safety mechanism that keeps them from overfilling? Our machine overflowed recently. We think we didn't set the load size dial all the way on large till it clicked. But shouldn't the machine have another mechanisms that keeps it from overfilling?

Yes, its called a Pressure Switch and its located behind the load level selector knob in the operator console. A common problem with these model washer (and a very minor one) is that the air hose comes loose from the pressure switch, which causes the washer to overflow. The following link explains:

Read through the link I provided and inspect the pressure switch. In many cases this is the a simple problem that appears to be something major. Best of all, reattaching the air hose won't cost you anything. If you perform these steps and still have a problem, more than likely you have a failed pressure switch that requires replacement. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

    Water keeps filling the washer


    If the washer keeps filling and overfilling then unplug the machine and see if the water still continues to come in. If this is the case, you have a bad water valve. If the washer just keeps filling and never gets to the top then your drain hose is shoved too far down into your house standpipe and must be pulled up and an air gap established.PART NUMBER 285805 @ 30.00 FOR WATER VALVE

    Fills up with water and wont stop


    Bad Preasure valve comes to mind first and formost it acts like a level sensor balanceing the size indicated for fill.

    Whirlpool Ultimate Care II keeps taking water.


    ck your drain nose/drainline, chances are you have along hose, perhaps even draining along the floor behind hte unit, into a "closed" drain system. in which cawee the wwater is syphoning out during the rinse cycle, youlll needt o raise the drain hose to above 48" and have it drain into a stand pipe to prevent siphoning effect

    Whirlpool Ultimate Care II spins only once in a while :-)


    hi there,

    sounds like the timer switch. the switch is mechanical, so it's quite easily replacable.

    also, the overfilling is a result of the pressure switch no engaging. this switch senses the water level and once it's up to capacity, it will shut off the water supply into the tub. check the switch and switch wire to make sure it's working correct. this switch is also mechanical and easy to fix.

    let me know if i can be of more help.

    thanks

    Washer won't start spin cycle


    sounds like a lid assy issue, can you hear a "clicking" just before the lid is closed, try opening nad closing a few times listening for a distinct "click" if not the machine doesnt think the door is closed and for safety reasons wont spin and drain.

    Ultimate II is refusing to go into agtation/wash cycle


    It sounds like a bad timer unit, and possibly a lid switch.

    As far as the water overfilling, that may be an unrelated problem, such as the water level switch... but most likely the timer.

    I have the same model, and it wouldn't drain.. and it would try to spin when full of water... an interesting sight to see!
