Water fill does not shut off

In every cycle, the water fills and will not shut off causing potential overflow. We have checked the drain pump to make sure it is clean. We have also checked the air hose to the water level sensor for any cracks or holes and that appears ok. Could the problem be the diverter valve or the water senser? Thanks.

    Actually can that previous comment. Just found that there will be a leak when the tank is empty. I am starting to wonder if the pressure transducer is calibrated wrong.

Or maybe there is a hole or leak in the air chamber. After checking that blowing into a pipe attached to the pressure sensor does shut off the water I decided to blow down the other tube going to the air chamber. And I could hear air coming out inside down at the bottom. With an air leak here there is no way the pressure transducer will shut off the water hence the overflow. It may be the air pipe way down the bottom or the chamber and I am off to investigate now.

Problem caan be the pressure switch. to test it, put on a length of hose, set machine going and use your mouth to pressurize the hose and water should stop. if it doesn't then pressure switch is faulty.
also the pressure switch hose goes to an air chamber and this can be clogged with gunge

I think you have a coin or something stuck in the drain pump itself. I have had to remove the pump,and take out the coin, reinstall it and it works perfect.

Washer tries to fill, but water goes straight out the drain.

Either washer drain hose is too far down drain pipe, or there is a airtight seal where drain hose and house drain meet. Either would cause siphon effect.

Washing machine keeps filling and will not go into cycle

if it overflows and dosent agitate check your pressure switch and hose.if it overflows and agitates you have a bad fill valve. if it fills and pumps at the same time check your drain hose. it should be higher than the water level of the machine or it will siphon out.

Hi. The above machine stops mid cycle and drain/fill light is on, also error code F3E, have cleaned both hot and cold water inlet filters, also checked drain pump and drain line, all ok. Machine drains with no issues and fills with hot water, runs for a while then shuts down.
Any ideas?

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
