Read through the following link for advice on what to do for an overfill problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r762094-washer_overflows

It is common to find the air hose to the pressure switch disconnected, causing this problem. What appears to be a serious problem, may just be a simple hose reattachment. Double check the electrical connections to the pressure switch as well. Make sure they aren't corroded, or loose. Read through the link I provided and let me know if you have questions. If you perform all the preliminary checks and still have the same problem, replace your pressure switch. I hope this helps you.

Washer just keeps filling and never advances on large and medium loads only


Your drain hose is pushed too far down into the drain so when you select the larger load sizes the water is being siphoned out as it goes in due to the pressure differential.

My washer keeps filling with water. It wont stop filling on small med. Or larg. It just keeps filling.


If the machine keeps filling even when it is off the water valve is defective. If it stops when you shut it off then, You may have a damaged or disconnected pressure hose. This is a clear rubber hose that runs from the side of the wash tub up to the load size switch. Inspect the hose as best you can.
If the hose is in good condition and is connected at both ends then you have a defective pressure switch.

My washer keeps filling no matter the size I have


This sounds like a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm-like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to start appropriate cycle. Make sure there is no damage to or obstructions in the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Keeps filling with water


The water level in a washing machine is determined by the pressure switch. The switch is located behind the load selector, water level, load size (has various names depending on model and manufacturer) knob on the operator console. If the switch malfunctions, the water will not shut off and the washer will overflow.

Now...before assuming the switch is defective, a common problem that occurs is the small air hose on the pressure switch coming loose or leaking. This air hose attaches from the wash tub to the pressure switch. The pressure swtich senses the change in air pressure as the tub fills and shuts the water off at the selected level. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r762094-washer_overflows

To access your pressure switch, unplug the washer and open the operator console. Look for a clear plastic hose. If it is NOT attached, you may have found your problem. Reconnect and test operate.

If it IS attached, check the entire length of the hose all the way to the wash tub for any cracks of leaks. In addition, remove the electrical connection(s) and check for corrosion. Clean if necessary.

If all these preliminary steps don't solve your problem, replace your pressure switch. Read through the link I provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope you find this information helpful.
