Front loading washer

Continues to fill with water after it is full and overflows. must turn water on, then off as we use. My guess is a sensor.

    My washer doesn't fill high enough. It stops filling before the second line of holes in the tub, from the top down. I have to hold the fill know inbetween the hi and med to get it to put more water into tub. Then I release the know and do it again when it comes to the rince cycle. How do I adjust this??

I put in a load. The machine filled up but did not stop filling. The dial did not proceede to next step, it stayed at the 10. Overflowing EVERYWHERE. When we moved the dial manually to spin, it drained...


your fill switch is either bad or "gllitched" and the timer cannot move until this switch senses the right amount of water for the load unless its an electronically sensed water/load capacity filled machine,when it starts,the water fills the unit and the pressure switch shuts the water fill off when at selected water level and powers the timer to continue the wash cycle,it works off a "bellows" on air pressure to change a switch by air pressure to operate the machine when full of water

When the water has reached it's proper level, the hot water turns off, but the cold water keeps filling until the water overflows the basket


Try this. With the wash tub empty, start to fill with water. Without turning washer off, unplug the washer from wall.

If water filling stops (hot and cold), then you are looking at a bad timer assembly. Replacement isn't that hard, parts can be difficult to find though.

If water continues to fill, your valve body / solenoid assembly is likely full of lime-scale. Easily replaced.

Water dose ot stop when washer is full. It continues to run.


If you disconnected power and water still flowed, replace the water valve. If water stopped flowing when power was disconnected, clean out tube from tub to water level switch.

My washer will not stop filling with water.


If it overflows from the tub then:
This can either be a fault in the fill sense tube( small tube connected to the bottom on the outer tub from the sensor at or near the top of the washer housing ) becoming blocked or broken or a fault with the sensor itself. This is inside of the machine and the lower cabinet will have to be opened to see it.

There should be two screws along the lower front edge of the washer cabinet. Remove these and the front of the cabinet will lift out towards you at a 45 degree angle an then unlatch. Unplug from power before opening the cabinet.

If it overfills from the drain hose:
then either the drain hose is too low and the water siphons out before it reaches the maximum or there is a tight seal at the drain hose to house drain port which will cause all the water to siphon out.

Overflow


It looks like that water level sensor needs to be replaced. Basked should never be filled with water. I suggest you to unplug the washer from the wall, turn off the water line to it. Don't try anything with it on your own. It can be very dangerous! Call the repair man.

FE means water is overflowing. Check pump filter. Check water level switch and hose. Also check that drain hose isn't too low causing it to refill itself continuously. In any case the drain pump should run for 4 minutes to try and eliminate the extra fill
