Washing machine won't stop filling with water

Whatever programme I choose, the machime keeps filling with water and won't stop. I have to manually turn the dial to 'off' and then to 'fast spin' to get rid of the 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!

Hotpoint WMF760 fills with water but doesn't move through programme


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.

Washer won t fill water


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.

Just a guess but could the fill valve be defective, not shutting off completely when it should?

If the water stops when you stop the cycle, then the pressure sensor is at fault. If you need to turn the water supply off to stop it, then the water inlet valve is at fault.

Washing machine won't fill. i filled it by hand with water, it won't agitate either, only spins.


The inlet solenoid is probably bad. And it won't agitate unless it fills and stops filling automatically.

Water won't stop filling


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.

GE Spacemaker Washer/Dryer. Model # DDPI380GAMWH. Water won't stop filling. It continues to fill during all cycles. Fills during agitation. Agitates inproperly. It agitates in short pulses as water...


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.

Indesit w11


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.

My washing machine doesnt stop filling the tub when the right water level is reached, it will just continue filling and never stops filling. Can anyone suggest what is wrong and how to fix this?


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.
