There has to be a sensor or some circuit that monitors how much water enters into the machine. What you could do is go to appliancepartspros.com and check out the parts for your machine.
You can also on that site tell them your problem and they will tell you the part responsible for the anomaly. U ca buy it from them or, now that you know the part number, check it out on ebay or other sources for a better price.
If your washer continues to fill with water and does not overflow onto the floor where is that water going???
The water is siphoning from the machine as fast or faster than it it filling. This is caused by one of two situations both have to do with how the drain hose is routed.
The most common is that the drain is too low. The drain for your washer must first rise above the height of the tub or highest water level before it enters the house drain or drainage sink. This height is typically a minimum of 30". So if you are trying to drain the washer into a low pipe, a short sink or down hill you must first raise the hose or piping to that 30" before it heads down hill.
Second cause is where the drain hose is pushed too far into the house drain. A typical drain pipe in the home has a water trap at the bottom. If you put your washer drain hose down into the pipe too far and contact the water in that trap you will also siphon the water from the machine. The drain hose should hook and be secured to the drain pipe and go inside about 6", that's all that is needed.
Fill Machine with hottest temp you can With some old rags or clothes and run a full cycle. OR boil a kettle and trickle on hot water while levering them from the drum with a blunt knife. Remove any remaining deposits with hot water and a rag then wash as normal. Lollies are only boiled sugars after all
Kenmore HE3T front loading washing machine. About every 2 minutes the cycle stops and flashes an "f" then an "h" on the display over and over again. **
That error code can be the result of no water detected entering machine after 30 seconds or pressure switch (water level control) activation not detected after 8 minutes of filling.
If there is no water in the machine at the time, make sure that both water taps are turned on, check for kinked fill hoses or plugged sediment screens in them and verify the water fill valve operation.
If there is water in the unit, verify drain pump and water pressure switch are operating properly, the pressure switch hose is in good condition and properly connected to the pressure switch. Also, make sure the water is not siphoning out of the machine prematurely due to an improperly installed drain hose
That error might also be caused by too much suds in the wash water like can result from using non-HE detergents
I think the water inlet valve is nearly stopped up with sediment in the screen filter where the supply hose screws to the valve.Cut the water off at the hose and disconnect and look for the screen. The hot water usually doensn't do this because the water has time to settle everything out while it's in the hot water heater.
A- Two things could be your problem... 1) - sometimes the screens in the fill valve or inside the ends of the fill hose get clogged up...use a tooth brush to clean them out. Don't forget to shut off the water first before removing the hoses to check for this. 2) - The fill valve itself may not be opening fully = time for a new fill valve.
Unplug your machine for 5 min then turn on spin to remove water. If water won't go you have a bad water pump. Code FL refers to a low water flow problem ( won't fill fast enough ) or old water still in tub.
Next you need to turn off the water ot the unit and remove the water lines. Look into the water inlets on the washer to see if the dirt screens are clogged and not letting water into you unit at a fast enough pace.
Your unit has a water level sensor and should agitate when full, but I believe your machine might be "timing out" i.e. not filling as fast as your unit expects so even though it doesn't fill all the way it begins agitating because it has taken too long to fill. Good Luck!
I had the same problem with my LG front load. The second repairman fixed the problem. The water lines going into the machine were clogged with sediment (probably because I have well water). This caused the cups to remain full of water because the water pressure was so low the siphons were not working as they should to empty the cups. This also caused the wash cycles to be extremely long (sometimes 2 hours) because it took so long for the water to enter the machine for the wash & rinse cycles. Since the lines have been cleaned it works fine.
many new machines use what we would only describe as hardly any water, does it do the job properly, if so then fine leave it as is,
this is calculated by computer so that the lowest level of water is used to do the job, hence the lowest amount of electric is used to warm it up, (a bit like filling the kettle to the top for one cup of coffee,its a waste)
its not what we see that matters, its what it does, after all we don't generally sit and watch it do we?
Jmars, under the consol there is two pressure switches. One controls the fill and the other is back-up incase the other fails. It sounds like your water pressure switch is tripping too soon. Try putting the washer into a self test mode by pressing in this order soak--soil level---soak--soil level. The machine should enter a test mode. Let it run it's test and see if you come up with any error codes. The pressure switch is the one on the left under the consol. It will be marked OPR, the part number is 8054766. The consol will lift up by using a putty knife under each end, pushin on the clips and lifting up. The back panel of the consol is removable. Catriver..post back
