As earlier described, regardless of the load size selected, the bucket continues to fill up with water to the point where it overflows into the machine frame and subsequently onto the floor. The main suspect was therefore the load selector switch, so I unplugged the machine, removed the screws holding the control panel in place, and checked behind the load selector switch to see if any wires had come loose. I noticed that all the wires were in place but a plastic tube had become dislodged from a nipple attached to the switch. Assuming this to be some sort of a vacuum tube that was used to shut off the water when it reached the appropriate level, I re-attached it and tried the machine again. Eureka, it worked.

The water is out flow.After the system runs. It is keep dripping a while then stop. It can be filled up that bucket a day


The water heater is equipped with safety device called a pressure relief valve. This valve is designed to open automatically when water pressure inside the tank becomes too great.

The relief valve should have a lever on the top. Lift it / push down on it briefly and it will allow water in the tank to flow through it (and out the pipe into the bucket). By allowing water to flow, will clear any debris caught between the seat and seal that may be causing the leak. If the valve continues to leak after doing this, the valve should be replaced. In most areas, this type of work is required to be performed by a licensed / qualified plumber.

Good luck!

My maytag home top loading washing machine over fills with water, ie. the switch to stop filling and start washing doesn't go off. I can drain it by setting it to spin.


top loading machines comes with a pressire switch to determine the water level.IT will fill with water till the switch is triggered to stop filling and continue with the next task of washing. there would be a rubber hose connected from the wash bucket to the pressure switch. Check for broken,leaking,bitten by rats hose or probably the switch it self is faulty, which is rather rare.

Water continues to run into the washing machine through the whole wash cycle and even when the machine is off. I have to keep the tape turned off. other than that the washing machine functions normally.


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)

Stop Fill

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)

STOP FILL

- 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)

Thanks for Choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Water fills in the bucket and will not drain


I've got the same problem. It drained through the hose for 6 months, but recently stopped and now fills the bucket. I connected a new hose, but that didn't help. I found some debris inside the dehumidifier (where you connect a hose to), but removing that didn't help. I may try taking the unit apart to see if somehow a cricket or some sludge got built up inside.
I'll post my findings. Hopefully it won't be too complex or nasty!!

After I do a wash complete I hear a noise and I notice it is filling with water I have to stitch to drain to get rid of the water


Hi welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. Let's try a little water valve flushing routine to see if we can't get the washer to "Snap out of it."

Turn off both water supply hoses at the wall connection. Remove just one hose and place the wall end of the hose in a bucket. Select a warm wash cycle and let the water back-flush into the bucket. Only turn on the faucett that still has a wall connection. Use the handle of a hammer and GENTLY tap on the water valve hose connections. When the bucket is about 1/3rd full stop the fill cycle. Connect the hose you first removed. Turn off the wall connection for the first hose that was still connected to the wall. Remove that hose and place the 2nd hose wall end in the bucket. Again start a warm wash fill cycle again tapping the hose connections of the water valve with the handle of a hammer until the bucket is 2/3rds full. Reconnect the hose and turn on the water. Do a normal wash checking to see if the filling with water at the end of the cycle routine repeats. If it does NOT repeat good job. If it does repeat then unplug the unit and see if the water continues. If it does the water valve will have to be replaced. If it stops you will need to find out why you have power to the water valve at the end of the cycle.

The objective here is to losen the piece of debris that is stuck in the diaphram of the water valve. The procedure above works about 70 % of the time if it is a small piece of debris.

Thanks fo choosing FixYa.

Zenith ZD30 dehumidifier - 1 1/2 years old stopped working had a half bucket oc colledted water in bucket when it stopped. I checked the fuse on the circuit board and have continuity.


Unplug from wall. Take the front cover off and disconnect the 2 wires that attach to the humidity control dial. Plug back in. If it works, the problem is the humidty control dial (mine just went bad). With it unhooked, it will run constantly, but will still turn off when the bucket is full. To turn off, simply unplug.

Danby continuous water flow will not work on a dehumidifier it still fills the bucket


Please try the following:
1) Remove the bucket.
2) You will notice a round outlet/spout where the water drips from into the bucket.
3) Remove the plug from the backside of the unit (you will now see a hole to the bucket area).
4) Feed a hose through the hole from the back and attach the end of the hose to the round outlet/spout.
5) Place the other end of the hose on a floor drain outlet.
6) Put the bucket back into the unit.

When the unit is turned on, the water will now flow through the hose instead (into the floor drain). When you want to use the bucket again to capture the water, you will need to remove the hose.

I hope that helps.

Ice Maker water keeps running


Bad I/M, won't shut off after harvest and continues to restart cycle. Heater in I/M should warm up thermostat after first harvest and stop unit from recycling.

Ice maker water wont shut off continues to run even when tray is full


The ice maker water fill solenoid may be leaking by and needs to be replaced. If you disconnect the water line from the solenoid and you see it continues to flow water then that valve is not seating properly. Another slight possiblility is the ice maker motor module gear is stuck in the fill position. See the attached link for a diagram. If the geared wheel just happens to get stopped in the "fill" position it will fill with full force water. If there is only a trickle of water then the soleinoid valve is the more likely source of the problem. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA56-20.gif http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA56-16.gif
