    You say your washer will not stop filling. If you push knob or disconnect power is any other way, does it stop filling? (or do you have to turn off the water at the fill hose valves?) Did you have this problem before you messed with the "diaphram"?

Hose must fit tight on switch and tub connection-make sure it has no defects in it. If machine fully drained then did not get to correct water level when restarted then water level switch is bad. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

My washer is starting the cycle on agitation not filling completely and on last spin cycle it starts to fill with water.


I found what seems to be an easy fix thatt solved the problem with my Maytag Centential washer that stated agitating before it filled with water. After opening the control panel and tilting it back, just pull the clear plastic hose that attaches to the cycle and leveling switch. Blow into the hose and you will probably feel water that's caught in the hose blow out the other end. Reattach the hose to the cycle and leveling switch. Now test it by starting a cycle and hopefully it works for you like it did for me. If you know how to open the control panel, this fix takes about 2 to 3 minutes start to finish. I feel bad for those people that have mentioned having repairmen replace parts that may know actually be at fault. I doesn't appear to be a bad switch, but instead a poor design the sometimes doesn't clear water from the hose causing the leveling sensor to think water is in the tub. This has now happened twice in the three years I had this washer. I hope this fix works for you if you too have premature agitation for the MVWC6ESWW1 washer.

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its


Hi,
Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps

Washer overfills water does not shut off.


All you gotta do is see if the pressure hose is secure and tight on the pressure switch and the tub ain't clogged with sediment. themobilian_666.jpgthemobilian_667.jpg

Whirlpool Washer model # LSN1000KQ0 overfilling


did you plug the hose back into the water level switch, double check to see if it is plugged, if it is your water level switch might be defective. trouble shoot by taking the front panel off... turn on the washer by using the timer, set water level to small...on the bottom of the tub housing there should be a nipple where the clear hose connects onto.....follow the clear hose from the switch down to the bottom of the tub.........disconnect the clear hose on the bottom of the tub.....plugg the nipple with your finger.........gently blow into the hose with your mouth.......but make sure the water level in the tub is at least at half way full...and the washer is on and filling up with water ...after you blow into the hose the washer should agitate.......if it does agitate your water level switch is defective...connect hose back........get your model number and source for the switch.........

Whilst on the rinse cycle, it just keeps on filling with water and does not stop. If I am out, it is just waisting water all of a sudden. I have to physically turn the dial to Spin for it to stop filling...


Easy fix, no parts needed mate. Simply look for a loose hose going to the water level switch. The small vacuum hose from tub to switch vibrates off from time to time OR sediment gets into the tube where it attaches at the base of the tub. Remove the hose at the switch in the control console and blow through it to clear any blockage and reattach firmly. Remove the water and retry. With any luck the washer will resume normal duty's. Good Day!

Washer will not fill up!


The water is siphoning out as it fills. Your drain hose is too low or has a air block. Remove the drain hose from the drain. Set the washer to fill. Hold the drain hose up higher than the washer. If it fills correctly and starts agitating,correct the drain hose problem.

Occasionally it will overfill


The water level switch is your problem.
Open the control panel and remove the plastic hose from the level switch and blow through it.
Soap and dirt clog the bottom end and prevents the switch from stopping. The water continues to flow because of this blockage.
After you reattach the plastic hose , set the washer to spin and turn it on to reset the switch.

Hotpoint washer fills begins to agitate then refills continously.


Very likely your drain hose is set too low. You can solve this with a standpipe or a kit called a siphon break.

When washer is in super wash cycle water will not stop causingthe tub to over fill running onto the floor.


It sounds like you are trying to use the largest water level setting. If this is correct you may have a pressure switch problem.

First turn the timer to spin and get all of the water out, that start a washer cycle with the water level set to the small or low setting and see if the washer fills to this level. if it stops at the low level great Now if it continues to fill and does stop you may need a pressure switch or the hose needs to be replaced that runs from the tub to the pressure switch.

Now set at the medium level and try again. does it stop or over fill?

If it over fills you probably need a pressure switch however before you purchase this, make sure the hose is in good condition one pin hole will cause your overfill condition.

My washer keep filling with water until the tub overfills


The problem is in your water height switch (load size) this is a diaphram switch with a hose attached to it. First make sure that there is no problem with the hose itself, if not then the switch needs replacing. The switch is located on the upper unit, and two screws, one on the lower left, and one on the lower right. Good luck.
