Over flowing washer

Washing machine had not been used for 2 weeks and suddenly the washer started filling when no one was home & over flowed.

What causes it to suddenly start filling on its own? Is there a faulty valve?

I have a Frigidaire front load washer model number Ftf2140es0 it will not fill with water. You can hear it click like its trying to fill but there's no water coming in


Here is checklist.
Start with the faucet that supplies the water to the machine.
It is flowing freely?
You will need to detach the washer hose to check that (and put a garden hose to the outside).
If the water is flowing freely from the faucet, then detach the hose to the washer and carefully inspect the filter screen inside the coupling on the back of the washer. The tiny (about 1/2 inch diameter) screen may be plugged up.
If the faucet, hose, and filter screen are good, the water flow solenoid could be defective.
That is the plastic piece where the 2 hoses attach from the outside. It has a wire connector as well.
God bless your efforts.

Error code of NF (no fill) on samsung top load washer (WA422PRHDWR/AA) even after checking lines for restrictions and ensuring clean line filters (red and blue). Now, when it does work, it will only do a...


Put the temp select switch on HOT, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. If there is water flow switch to COLD, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount should be approximately equal or slightly more than flow on HOT. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. Move selector to WARM, start machine. Now there should be twice the flow of water than there was with HOT and COLD temps. I suspect it is the HOT side of inlet water valve that has failed because machines usually rinse with COLD water.

My kenmore elite quite pak 2, HE3 shows F then H and quits the cycle.


Hello,

The FH error code mean that no water was detected entering the machine.The things to check are,a pinched or kinked water hose into the washer, the faucets off or if faucets on make sure that something has not restricted the water flow through the hoses..this will be possible espically if they washer is connected using "AQUA FLOW FLOOD STOP" ..the internal flood stopper will cause water flow to be cutoff for no reason. Also check the filter screens on the back of the washer where the fill hoses connect to,for debris in the screens.

If all above checks ok i would suspect the part called the FLOWMETER was defective in the washing machine.

I get an F H code. I bought a new inlet value which fixed the problem for about two weeks. I then installed the old one wich lasted another 2 weeks. How can I find and fix the correct problem. Maytag ...


Hello,

As i suppose you know by replacing the water inlet valve that the F-H error code means now water was detected entering the washer. having replaced the water valve,one thing you should check,espically if using"aqua flow flood stop" braided steel inlet hoses from the house water supply,is if water is flowing through the inlet hoses into the washer, if your using that type of hose from the faucet they have a problem in them and the internal flood stop device inside the hose fails and even though the water faucets are on no water is getting into the washing machine. Also or even if using those type hoses disconnect them from washer and check for water flow through them when not connected to washer. If water flow is good into washer replace this part called the flow meter part # W10110225 it measures and tells the control that water is coming into the washer. It the flow meter can of course be purchased where you got the water inlet valve.

Good luck,
Gene

your fill switch is either bad or "gllitched" and the timer cannot move until this switch senses the right amount of water for the load unless its an electronically sensed water/load capacity filled machine,when it starts,the water fills the unit and the pressure switch shuts the water fill off when at selected water level and powers the timer to continue the wash cycle,it works off a "bellows" on air pressure to change a switch by air pressure to operate the machine when full of water

Washer continures to fill up with water to the point of over flowing and won't start a cycle


is most probably the inlet valve at the rear of the machine where the inlet hose connects too.
May have to remove the rear panel to gain access to valve, it may just be a wire has come off
Hope this helps

Washer keeps filling w/ water, only stops when changed to spin


Your drain line is too low.
OR the drain line is restricting air where it enters the drain stand pipe.
Remove the drain line and hold it up high.
Turn the washer on to fill. It should fill then stop.
This example should explain what you must do to correct the drain line problem.
