Easy fix. Remove the water level pressur hose and blow it out. This get the sediment and trash out the tube and allows it to correctly read the water pressure as i fills in the tub.

Water intake does not stop


there is a pressure sensitive control that is activated by a small tube running from the bottom of the tub up to the top of the machine
as the water in the tub rises ,air that is trapped exerts pressure on a diaphragm in the sensor
the pressure is set by your selection of the wash load /level
when that pressure is reached the sensor pressure is overcome and the switch is activated . as a result the inlet water solenoid is shut off and the wash program starts
now knowing how it works , check for the small hose is not full of water when the tub is empty, the hose is intact and not cracked or broken and the pressure switch is operational ( disconnecting the hose at the tub and blowing air into it ( like blowing up a balloon) will activate the switch
if that is working ,the next point ti check is the solenoid that switches of the tap water with the machine on as if you are doing a wash the water will start to flow . blow into the tube and the switch should shut off the water flowing into the tub and start the wash cycle
if the machine starts to wash but the water still flows then it is the solenoid that is faulty
fix is a replacement unit

My Simpson Eziset 550 will not drain after a (normal) wash cycle. When the drain hose is lowered to the floor drain water flows heavily from the hose (gravity). When the hose is returned to the sink d


Hi Erin just read your post,I have worked on these machines alot.Now I need you to manually drain the machine of all the water. Once drained i want you to select drain and spin cycle. Now push the start button,do you hear the pump working?If you do stop the machine and select normal cycle on small water level and push the start button.The machine will then fill.Once it stops filling stop the machine and select drain an spin cycle.Does the machine pump out? Now if you do not hear the pump, could be the pump is faulty or jammed.Does the water flow very fast when you lower it to the floor? Please reply with answers to these questions and I will try my best to help you.

The machine stopped and is flashing the F them H signal. What does this mean. Already did a spin cycle. Before all this happened water was found on the floor. Hoses look okay.


FH: If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering
machine, the valves will be turned off and the error code will be
displayed. OR If the control has turned the water valves on and after
8 minutes the flow sensor has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
If there is no water in the unit:
-Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned
on all the way.
-Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in
the inlet valves.
-Verify inlet valve operation.
If there is water in the unit:
-Verify drain pump operation.
-Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and
properly connected to tub and pressure switch.
1. Verify there is not a siphon problem.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves,
pressure switch, drain pump, flow meter, and
Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check all hoses for possible leaks.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power
6. Verify pressure switch operation.
7. Verify flow meter operation by blowing air through the part and
measuring the resistance.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.

Water keeps going and overflows


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

You will have to open the top panel for steps below

Water level control is handled by the water level pressure switch inside the top panel. It is about 3.25 inches in diameter, has 3 wires connected to it and a hose that looks like a small vacuum line.

Check that vacuum looking line for any holes, kinks or disconnects.

You will need about 3 feet of the same knid of line available from any autoparts store for this test.

Remove the machine side hose and connect the 3 ft hose you just obtained. DO NOT drop the machine hose into the machine.

Place the timer on the wash cycle and start the cycle
Result = fill

Force air into the hose orally until you hear a click.
Result = fill stop agitation begin

If it does not pass this test then the pressure switch is bad.

If water never stops flowing the water inlet valve has debris internally and will probably have to be replaced.

Don't forget to reconnect the machine side hose to the pressure switch.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Kelly

Then remove the vacuum

Cold water cycle has warm water no cold water allowed. sounds like some kind of valve is not stopping the hot water from coming in


Make sure that the inlet hoses are connected to the correct inlet solenoid valve (located just inside the cabinet). If the hot water solenoid was passing water when not wanted, the washer would eventually overflow on to the floor. There may be a problem with the solenoid control circuits which may require professional help to diagnose.

Somehow, she added water to raise the amount of water in a bosch front end loader and it overflows when adgitating. how can I manually remove water?


take the drain hose at the back and lower it so its beneath the water level in the drum--the water should flow out--or else open the filter at the front--but thats a bit messy

When running a cycle the water doesnt shut off causing it to over flow, but the pump is working


If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

If it overflows and don't start the cycle-
Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tube. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.

Whirlpool ultimate care II will not spin


You said,washer is full of water and will not spin. You hear the lid switch clicking. When you start it on spin cycle and hear a hum, the tub moves a couple of inches and then stops...shortly after it shuts off.


Some reasons this may happen
Washer won’t drain or spin
n
1. Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 72 inches (183 cm) above the floor?
2. Is the lid open? ............Also the lid switch can be faulty!!
The lid must be closed during operation.
3. Is there excessive sudsing?
Always measure detergent. Follow manufacturer’s directions.
4 If you have very soft water, you might need to use less
detergent.

Sounds to me like the lid switch can be faulty!!Then it acts like the lid is open.
