Question about Washing Machines
The washer continues to fill with water until manually shut off. Model # WDSR2080DAWN. Serial # FL 177649G. Please help, I am tires of using all my towels to clean up my floor.
This problem is commonly caused by a pressure switch malfunction. This switch is located behind the water level or load size selector knob inside the operator console. If you remove the back of the console you will be able to access the switch. The pressure switch has some electrical connections and an air hose attached to it. The air hose runs from the switch to the bottom side of the wash tub. Air pressure from the tub increases as the tub fills with water and, depending on the water level selected, determines WHEN the water shuts off. Now...commonly what happens is the air hose comes loose from the pressure switch and it will no longer shut off. The following link explains:
I would check the air hose, first. Often, all that is required is to reattach the hose and the problem is solved. However, if the air hose is intact and has no leaks or splits anywhere, I would recommend replacing the pressure switch. A replacment can be purchased online at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Controls and Backsplash" heading for item number 10 (part #WH12X10065). Repairclinic.com also carries the same part for slightly less (item number 2205).
This is a simple repair (even if you have to replace the switch) and won't cost much. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you require additional assistance.
