LG WM0642HW won't stop filling. Floods house

I came home tonight to find the kitchen flooded. The LG WM0642HW washer was sitting there with the door open, half the load washed out on the floor, no lights on, and the water running into the machine and out onto the floor. Any ideas what failed? I am suspecting the fill valve, but open to other ideas.

SOURCE: Duet whirlpool washer mysteriously floods the

I had the same problem, found it at about 2 am. No fun. Pretty easy fix. The part on the back of the washer where you screw in the water lines in needs replaced. Its been 2 years but I think it only took about 30 mins to fix once I had the part. Remove the top of the washer (couple screws in back) The part that the hoses screw into has a wire that goes to it that opens/closes the vaule when it needs water, its not closing all the way and water is continuing to fill. Good luck, think the part was about $50 or so. I would shut off the water at the wall in between washings until its fixed, and when on vacation. The hoses always have water in them if the. good luck

SOURCE: flooding! Help

This is usually a symptom of a pressure switch malfunction. The pressure switch is located in the operator console behind the load (or water) level knob. It is cylindrical in shape and has an electrical connection and an air hose attached to it. In many cases, the only problem is that the air hose has come loose and fallen off the fitting on the pressure switch. All you have to do is reattach it. HINT: placing a small zip tie around the air hose where it connects onto the pressure switch will create enough resistance to keep the hose from vibrating loose again. Just a snug fit will do. Over tightening can break the fitting on the pressure switch. You will need to open the console and inspect it. To open the console, it comes off in a few different ways depending on the year and model of the washer:

1. If you have removable end caps on the console, they simply pry off by lifting from the the back exposing a screw under either end. Remove the screws and the console lifts up.

2. If the end caps do not come off, place a putty knife in the front corner of either end of the console where it meets the washer top and push in while lifting up. This depresses a retaining clip and the console will lift up.

3. Some consoles have a screw located on either side in the back that you need to remove and it will then lift up.

Be careful when you lift the console. There are small plastic hinges holding it in place and they can break if you aren't careful. Place the console in its resting position by laying it over the back of the washer. The pressure switch will be easily accessible. Double check the hose like I previously stated and double check to make sure all the electrical connections are in place.

If you check the switch and find that everything is in place as it should be, you may have to replace the switch. Post back with your COMPLETE model number (located around the rim of the washer tub opening) and I can track down a part number for you.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: MY WHIRLPOOL WASHER FLOODS YHE FLOOR ON FILLING BEFORE IT START T

you have a bad pressure switch or the hose come off in a unbalanced wash ,,, look in the top and check the hose (about a 1/4 clear hose) and make sure its still connected to the valve and if so replace the valve.

SOURCE: water leak

there is a blockge so the water comes out the way it went in when spinning,
check the filter at the bottom of your drum.
rear of machine, take panel off and look in to see black rubber attached to drum about 3" diameter. filter in there.it's a kind of basket with a ball float in it.
put back the way it came off as only fits 1 way.

Front load washer filling up with water when off


if it's off or unpluged and still filling up you have a bad water valve,mark the hoses if they're not marked already so you know where the hot and cold fill hoses go after you change out the water valve on the washer,usually sediment gets stuck in the valve stopping it from closing and the water will keep filling into the washer,i've seen houses flooded from this,shut down the house valve that feeds the washer until you get the new washer valve.hope this helps and good luck,next time send the brand name and model number.

Washer is over flowng


Seems very likely that the water level sensor is malfunctioning, and not telling the water inlet solenoids to close when the appropriate water level is reached.

Water Overflow


hi there,

i would recommend checking the water level switch or lid switch and also the cable leading to it. that is what sends a signal to the machine control to stop filling with water.
