Re: washer will not fill

Triple, sounds like you are siphoning. Pull the drain hose out from the drain hole. Make sure you have a air gap where the drain hose goes in. Try this first. back

Whirlpool GSQ9669LW1 washer. Originally Load Size was set to small. After water was filled to that level and machine started to work, wanted to add more water. Turned the Load Size knob to Medium, nothing...

You would have to start the wash cycle all over in order to get enough water for the med load size. Once the washer starts it cycle you have to cancel that cycle to start a new one. Hope this is a help to your question

Tub fill half way up with water

Possible fault with the water level sensor, since this is a new machineit is best to refer to delearship before you do it yourself as this is under warranty.

No matter what setting I put it on,like small load or med washer fills up with water and will not shut off. What could the promblem be.i

If you have to shut the water off at the tap and the washer agitates then you need a new fill valve . If it shuts the water off when you push the stop button or unplug the washer then the level switch is bad or the hose from the tub to the level switch is obstructed,

Overflows with water when filling

It sounds like your fill selector is bad this is the switch that you select small med or large loads. There is a rubber vacume line that runs from it to your washer drum as water fills it puts pressure thru the line to the switch when it reaches the pressure set (small med lrg load setting) on the switch it kicks the water valve off. The line may have a leak or the switc is bad. You can ck the switch by hooking a line to it and blowing air into it with your mouth you should hear and feel a click. Sometimes it will fix its self when you push and pull air out of the switch. If not replace it. good luck

Washing Machine wont recoginze the load amount to fill with water, ex..small, med, it justs keep filling up to the brim??

Sounds like your problem is one of three things. Most common is that you have to "reset" the water level. This is done by turning the water level knob passed the large load size, and then down to small. Any time you want to go to a smaller sized load, you have to do this. Another possibility is that the pressure switch is bad, this is an easy fix (although not as easy as the reset) The switch can be purchased thru a local parts supply house. And the last thing could be a bad water valve. This will leak and continue to fill the washer after it is already full, this however is usually followed with water all over the floor. If it is not the reset, write me back and I'll walk you thru the other repairs. Hope this helps!

Won't stop filling, water just keeps running into washer even after agitation starts have to turn water connection off to stop filling

check to make sure the control knobs are turned to exactly small -med -or large - if it's in the middle of say med and large loads the water will over flow - this happened to us three times (cause of daughter!)

Just rehook the clear tube back onto the air dome (back right side of drum), drain any water from the drum, the refill, pressure switch will reset itself. Start to fill on small load size first, then move up when washer starts to be sure it reset all the sizes.
