Washer does not stop filling up

The washer will not stop adding water. even when in the "off" position, it will still begin to add water and eventually overflow. is this a sensor problem or something much worse?

Why is water overflowing my resivor on my pathy

If I understand correctly, your coolant (water) is overflowing out of your resevoir? Either you have too much coolant, and it doesn't have any place to go, or it is boiling over. Remeber even water expands when hot.

Kenmore elite he5t front loading washer door locks, unlocks, then locks again before beginning cycle

This is aself test procedure on the door locking mechanism . You will also hear a click, the drum will make a partial turn,and the door will unlock berore locking again. Once the door has locked a second time the washer will begin tumbling and adding water. The sensing process will continue until the correct amount of water is added to the load.

Electrolux washer MEX731CFS0 overflows

Possible fault with the inlet valve section. It is possible that the inlet valve is open, clogged or is not working due to a faulty coil. also if there is no voltage from the program controller unit it will not be active. so check this voltage to the inlet valve to confirm.

He probably disconnected the water level sensor when replacing the belt or the timer is dead.
Check for any unconnected sensor or check if the main program button is turning propely..

Oasis water level problems

Most likely, your tape is not holding the pressure and the machine starts filling because it thinks the water is low. The new hose should fix the problem. If not it will probably mean a new control.

I would also like to know the location of the rub hole on the hose. What was it rubbing against? Thanks/Mike
