Re: washing machine fills continuously

I had the same problem as above. I cleaned the chamber attached to the bottom part of the bucket and used a syringe to push hot water down the this plastic hose that runs to that unit. I also made sure that the clip holding the plastic hose at both ends are fited properly. (similar to what mike has in solution 4). All sorted.

Re: washing machine fills continuously

If you know how to use a mains volt meter you can check if the solenoid that controls the water inlet is energised to start and the de-energised to stop the flow of water. If this operates as suggested the water level switch is probably ok as is the controller. That then leaves the valve itself - if brave - disconnect water and power, remove valve and disassemble. There is a tiny hole in rubber membrane inside valve. If this gets blocked it can open but cannot close. Usually it is a tiny piece of dirt that causes the problem. Mat

Re: washing machine fills continuously

You may have solved the problem by now....but it is probably a blockage in the level pressure chamber which is eaither a part of the drain pump manifold or a seperate chamber attached to the bottom of the tub. Its easy to find just follow the small pressure hose from the top of the machine. If its part of the drain manifold its not so easy to clear unless you have a large surringe to pump hot water down the hose to clear it.**** REMEMBER TO UNPLUG THE APPLIANCE FROM THE POWER SUPPLY ******

Re: washing machine fills continuously

It sound to be the water level switch but somes times the thin hose conected to the water level switch is broken... if you know how to dissambling and check visualy if you got a broken hose or a bad switch if the hose is ok try snaping the switch with an screew driver..any way is better to replace it with a new one....

Washing machine continues to fill when starts

If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Water continues to fill after it should have

first does it over flow.if not pull your drain hose up from the drain till it is aleast the same level as the back of the waher control panel.
If the Drain hose is to far down in the pipe this will cause the water to drain out by gravity.the other least likely problem is a bad fill pressure switch.
