SOURCE: overflowing water

If the water comes out when filling, check your water valve by unplugging the washer when it is filling. If the water still runs, replace the valve. If the water stops, check the small tube that goes from the water pressure switch (in the consul) to the bottom of the tub. This must be connected without any holes or obstructions. If this is ok, replace the water pressure switch.

if the water doesnt shut off when you unplug the machine,then the valve is faulty.do you hear a click when you open/close the lid.undo the two screws at the front of the hob under lid and you can lift it high enough to check and ajust it back right side.but they do get rusty.hope this helps.

SOURCE: washing machine overflows

sorry in advance for the lack of appropriate terminology. my "solution" comes from a mother with no mechanical experience point of view.

i had the same problem with my washing machine overflowing. I opened up my machine, found the clear hose that went from this little square box on the side of the tub up to the switch for the "load size" knob. i pulled the hose off the square box and saw that there was a piece of paper in it. i pulled it out, scraped the scum out and reconnected it. started the machine. - that didn't work.

so, I got the thinnest pipe cleaner i could find pulled the tube from the little box, and stuck the pipe clearner down the pipe of the little square box. pulled out a bit of scummy lint, then I blew in the tubing. I heard a "click", I thought.. okay maybe that's it. reconnected everything, started my machine.. and now it works :)

This probably wasn't the proper thing to do, but it worked and saved me from the cut throat washing machine mechanics in this area.

SOURCE: water keeps going and overflows

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

You will have to open the top panel for steps below

Water level control is handled by the water level pressure switch inside the top panel. It is about 3.25 inches in diameter, has 3 wires connected to it and a hose that looks like a small vacuum line.

Check that vacuum looking line for any holes, kinks or disconnects.

You will need about 3 feet of the same knid of line available from any autoparts store for this test.

Remove the machine side hose and connect the 3 ft hose you just obtained. DO NOT drop the machine hose into the machine.

Place the timer on the wash cycle and start the cycle
Result = fill

Force air into the hose orally until you hear a click.
Result = fill stop agitation begin

If it does not pass this test then the pressure switch is bad.

If water never stops flowing the water inlet valve has debris internally and will probably have to be replaced.

Don't forget to reconnect the machine side hose to the pressure switch.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Kelly

Then remove the vacuum

Hi I have a Simpson 7.5kg top loader machine model no 22s701E. The water keeps continually filling. I have to turn the taps off for it to stop otherwise it overflows everywhere.


Water inlet valves operate when power is supplied to them. If you turn the machine off or pull the plug and the water stops it means that the inlet valve is ok. If the water continues to run with no power to the valve then the valve is faulty..
Replacing a crook inlet valve is not a big job for a tech..
Good luck....Nomess

Overflow problems


Found pressure switch was not connected properly. when the cover was taken off to fix lid switch, the tube inside the body of machine came off, so just simply needed to be re- connected and now everything is working okay.
