Re: Washing machine won't stop filling with water
Sounds like a faulty or sticking water level switch.
Could be a blockage in the pressure chamber to the switch.
Remove the hose to the pressure switch and see if it is clear by blowing down it, you should hear air or bubbles at the other end, if not then it is blocked..
If clear then check switch.
THANK YOU!!! After months of dealing with the same issue and several calls to the appliance repair shop (No warranty so we were trying to take care of the repair/s ourselves), I fixed my own machine with your suggestion! My husband was blown away! Thank you again!

Bad motor/ DC power inverter control assembly. My suggestion is don't buy electronically controlled washing machines. They're designed to stop working and for corporate to sell you parts and service again and again and again, until you go buy a rebuilt second hand fully electro-mechanical good ole reliable mechanical top load washing machine.
pipes maybe clear but is your area wher you live prone to limescaling? where the water pipe/pipes go into the machine there is a switch to shut on/off the flow of water during whatever cycle you want.this might be blocked or sticking. first try to select different cycles and see if any of those fills the machine with water. if no water comes its one of two things. that switch is faulty or communication between the switch and the front consule is at fault.
contact your supplier after trying to go thru a few different cycles.
If the water still flows in when the machine is off the inlet solenoid is faulty, if when you push start it fills and keeps filling then the problem will be with either the electronics or the pressure switch. You really need to get someone who has experience with whirlpool machines to look at it for you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. This sounds like a problem with the water level switch in the washer. It controls the amount of water entering the tub. It is probably defective. You may want tomake sure the switch is getting power first by testing the wires with a voltage meter.
does it have a manual programme knob?if it does ,probably the internal contacts do not mesh so it stops at next step (programme)but the water pump keeps on making the noise.
try turning the knob by hand when machine stops before entering next programme cycle.if machine starts ,programme knob is the problem.
Not familiar with this model.
When a washing machine fills with water up to a predetermined level, it usually operates a pressure switch which will turn off the water valve, and redirect the power to the programmer, or heater, or some other stage of the programme. If there is a blockage of powder or gunge in the tube leading to the pressure switch this would prevent air from rising up the tube to operate the switch. Tom.
