Knob won't work


Easy check for water filling problem like yours. Unplug the power and see if water still flows into machine. If yes----your inlet valve on the washer is stuck open and needs replaced. It is the part on the washer back where your fill hoses attach to. If the water is flowing into the machine while plugged in and it stops when unplugged, you have something in the control panel sending power to that inlet valve even when the machine is off. You would now need to find out where the power is coming from. If its an electronic control washer, the main board may need replaced.

Washer will not stop filling and overflows.


A possibility is the pressure switch that senses water level is bad or the tube that connects it to the outer tub is split or loose and leaking air. If this is a timed-fill rather than a level-sensed fill, the timer may be in trouble. The washer top needs to be raised up to look for the level switch.
Remove the agitator and watch the plastic hub at the top of the shaft to see if it moves when the washer is set to wash. If it does, remove the plastic hub and see if it is cracked or the interior splines have been torn--if so, replace the hub.

Washing machine overflowing


Sounds like the water level sensing sub-system is malfunctioning. If you want to pursue this further, let me know.

Machine doesn t stop filling during rinse cycle and door unlocks and opens flooding room


Hi there,

Check the following -

Water-inlet valve
Water-level switch

Water-inlet valve
A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.


Water-level switch
A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Good Luck!

Overflow


Hello,

If you unplug the machine and the water still comes in, you have a bad Water Inlet Valve. If when you turn the machine on at in overfills and you can stop the water by turning off the washer timer then you have one of a couple possible issues.

First, you pressure sensing tube could be clogged
Second, you just plain have a defective pressure sensing switch.

If you have anymore questions, feel free to comment back.

Thank you

Water overflow


Are you on a well? Often people with a lot of sediment in water get sick of the screens in water valve plugging up so they remove them. NEVER remove these screens. If any sediment gets into valve it can hold it open causing flooding. If you unplug unit and water still comes in you must replace valve.
