This depends on the make of the washer / some whirlpool and kenmore will fill but if the lid switch is bad it will not advance to start washing ,,,, put the dial on spin and with it turned on close the lid and if it dont start spinning then your lid switch is your problem ,,,, can help better if i can have the make, model and serial off your washer.

Fisher and Paykel top loader washing machine, won't stop filling up with cold water


The pressure switch usually has air in the feed pipe which sometimes gets water into it which then fails to notify the system when to switch off water supply which then prevents the relay to the motor to start.check the feed pipe so it is empty of any water.this will allow the pressure switch to work properly.if the switch has failed you can get replacement part from eBay.

Tip

The washing machine is under filling water?


This problem is due to fault in the Water-level switch in washing machine.
The Water-level switch is the part in the washing machine that senses the filling water in the tub. When the water reaches to its required quantity the Water-level switch sends the command to stop the water supply. But if the Water-level switch is faulty. It will sense the wrong quantity of water in the machine. And makes the water supply stop bit early then required. So washer does not fills with required water .The Water-level switch is located at the bottom of the outer tub in the washing machine. Many a times removing and reconnecting the switch makes it proper. in other cases it needs to be replaced.
These will help. Thanks

Check the pressure switch and hose. Pressure switch is what turns the pump on and off. Trouble is usually in the hose so check it first. Look for the hose to be unattached or clogged.

My washer will not stop filling - it overflowed the tub, and will not drain.


If you can hear water running into the machine when the power is off then the fill valve has failed

If the water switches on and off when you switch the machine power supply on and off then it is either the pressure switch or the pipe supplying the pressure to the pressure switch

Easy test is to remove the pressure switch pipe at the base of the outer container and start the washer filling , blow lightly into the pipe and you should hear a click and the water should turn off

If it does not then the switch is faulty, if it does then check for congealed soap in the small plastic fitting from which you removed the pipe in the first place

Washing machine continues to fill when starts


If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Washing machine fills in the water but does not start the wash cycle


The fact that it does not fill completely can be related to a problem with the water-level switch, that regulates the water level.

See from Repairclinic:
"This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch."

However, when it is only the switch the mashine usually completes the cycle, but with less water than normal.

A possibilty is that either the timer is faulty or there is a problem with the water supply.

Check that water is coming from water supply with regular pressure, and that hoses back there are not obstructed.

More likely you will have to replace the timer.

See again from Repairclinic:
"When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water."

  • You can find parts at the following websites, you need to input your model number. If the part is not listed contact them.

    this may sound silly but check the waste outlet pump electrically, some models are wired up so if the pump fails the water will not enter the machine, this works on the theory that if it fills up it can not empty also check the solenoids for open circuit electrically, double check the water supply to the machine, it may have been fine but you could have kinked the pipe placing the machine back where it should go?
