If the water inlet is faulty the water flow will only stop if you turn the wall tap off...
If the fault is in the machine the inlet will stop when the machine or the electricity is turned off.
If the water flow stops when electricity is halted it indicates that the inlet is functioning properly. There are a number of things which can cause the inlet to not turn off, such as the water level sensor is faulty or blocked. It could even be that the motor controller is faulty.
Unless it is a simple inlet change I recommend that you let a technician look at your machine.
Assuming the water is coming in even when unit is unplugged from wall. You should to replace the water inlet valves where the hoses connect to the machine. You need to unplug the power and remove the top, disconnect the hoses unhook the wire harness plugs, unscrew the hose valve hex nut and remove valve. Install the new one in reverse order.
The machine will fill with it connected to the Electrical supply then stop if unplugged providing the fill valves/ water is okay....If it keeps on filling after unpluged then sounds like faulty fill valve,if on the other hand it fills without stopping when plugged in then its your air hose or Pressure switch at fault,Good luck
Hi Welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. You have debris inside your water inlet valve. You can try to clean it by doing the following:
- First remove both hoses from the water inlet valve and remove the inlet screens of the water valve.
(Use a knife blade on the outer part of the screens to remove them from the water valve)
- Connect both hoses to the water inlet valve without the inlet screens.
- Connect ONE hose to the wall faucet
- Place ONE hose in a bucket
SELECT WARM WASH and start wash fill
Water should flow into the washer and the bucket. Use the handle of a screwdriver and tap the hose connections of the inlet water valve for about 20 seconds. (your trying to free the debris from the inlet water valve diaphram)
Reverse Hose connection at the wall.... i.e. hook up other hose and disconnect the one you had connected. Place the hose you disconnected from the wall into the bucket.
START warm fill
Water should flow into the washer and the bucket. Use the handle of a screwdriver and tap the hose connections of the inlet water valve for about 20 seconds. (your STILL trying to free the debris from the inlet water valve diaphrams)
- Connect hose to wall connection
- WASH the inlet screens under slowly running water until both sides are clean
- Remove hoses from the water inlet valve and install the inlet screens.
- Reconnect hoses and turn on water supply
TEST HOT and COLD fill
Turn off machine.... IF the debris was freed the water flow will stop when the machine is turned off.
If this flushing attempt does not correct your constant water flow the remedy is to replace the water inlet valve on your washer.
I can help with locating parts ON-Line but will need your model number to help you should you require a water valve.
Hopefully you are able to clear the debris by doing the above. (50 - 50 chance of it working)
Hi just read your posting.Now try this.Select only cold water fill and start cycle,then when you hear water entering your machine turn the power off at the wall.The water should stop filling straight away.If it does try the same test on your hot water.If either of the valves are faulty it should continue to fill after you have turned the power off to the machine.Please reply and tell me if the hot or cold water did not stop or if they both stopped.Please try the test on hot and cold a couple of times to be sure.Looking forward to your reply.
Hello, fill the washing machine with water and when the water is about 1/2 full of water,unplug the washers power cord from the wall outlet.if the water keeps flowing into the washing machine with the power cord pulled the "fill valve"(where the hot and cold hoses are attached to the washer) has mechanically stuck open and will have to be replaced. if the water shuts off when you remove it's power cord from the wall outlet,try plugging the washer in and out a couple more times and if the water stops each time the fill valve indicates as being good.
If the water continues to fill even if unplugged the water valve is sticking and needs replaced. if removing power turns the water off the water level pressure switch is bad or there is something plugging the sensor tube somewhere. Eric
if you can turn the washer off while it is still filling. and the water continues to enter the machine you have a bad inlet valve.
Do me a favor turn the washer to fill, with the washer still running unplug from the wall. If the water is still entering the unit you have a bad inlet valve
