Roper RAS8244LQ Water Level Problem

Just replaced the motor coupling for this washer. Now, no matter what level it's set on, it overflows when it's filling up. It's like there's a water sensor or something that's not working. It washes, spins and all, but I have to stop it during the filling up stage and move it to the next stage manually.

There is a water level switch that has a tube that is probably disconnected or pinched or damaged in some way.

You can find the part as well as information at partselect.com.

If you need more help, post a comment.

Thanks,

Tim

My Maytag performa series LAT2500AAE fills to the medium level no matter which setting I use. It does NOT overflow.


If your infinite water level switch has a reset, perform this before changing the water level setting prior to your next load, this is usually done by rotating the knob to the reset zone, then back to your desired water level setting. If your problem still exists, you will most likely need the water level switch replaced Part# 22001776. Pleazer Appliance...

Water will not turn off


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Water Inlet Valve If the washer is overflowing and power is shut off to the washer, the water inlet valve has failed. Replace it.
Pressure Switch If the washer is overflowing the pressure switch might be defective. The pressure switch is attached to a small tube which is attached to the outer wash tub. As the water level rises the air pressure in the tube increases, once the set water level is reached the pressure switch turns off power to the water inlet valve. Check to be sure the air tube to the pressure switch is clear before replacing the switch.

Low Water Pressure from House Supply If the washer is overflowing the water pressure to the water inlet valve might be too low. The water inlet valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to shut off properly. If the pressure is lower, the valve may not close fully when the power is shut off. This results in the valve leaking water into the washer and causing it to overflow.

Roper top loading washer RTW440VQ1 will not stop filling up


The pressure switch, also called the water level switch, is what control the amount of water goes in the machine, If your machine is constantly filling to the overflow point, then that is your problem. Now, if water is going in and the level is staying the same then your machine drain line is lower than the pump and your siphoning out the water as it goes in. Pull the drain up a little a that should fix the problem.

Water level control switch not working. even i set water level to very low it just keeps filling and has overflowed. i am guessing that the switch needs to be replaced.


Hello,

It depending on exactly what your seeing that will determine the problem.

Does your washer start agitating and keep filling?? if yes it does start agitating and the water continuies to fill try disconnectiing the power and if it keeps filling what would be wrong is that the water inlet valve is sticking open and it would need to replaced

If the washer continues to fill and does not start agaitating would be a defective water level switch as you suspect it may be.If ya disconnect the power and it STOPS filling replace the water level(pressure) switch.

Washer is overflowing


The water input on washers is controlled by the timer which actuates the solenoid valves for both hot and cold water, telling them when to fill and when to close. I would run the machine thru a fill cycle with the washer back off, and with a voltmeter, observe if the voltage ever cuts off as the timer runs. I Another variable is the water level control. So also determine if that is working since if it failed to open the 'fill' circuit at the proper volume, you might have this overflow problem.

Replaced the lid switch on my top loading washer and it fills with water and it still wont start.


Hello,
There are a couple things that could cause that

1) The water level switch,but if it filled to normal level and the water stopped that is pretty unlikely.

2) the motor,if it just sits there silent and no humming/buzzing noise the motor is most likely not the problem,if a heavy buzzing is heard the motor needs to be replaced.

3) again if it just sits there and wont make any sounds no matter where its set at,the timer is the very probable trouble.

I hope this helps you diagnose your washer trouble,
