I am not sure what the problem is... one passibillity :It can be something blocking the pressostat (pressostat ... is the thing regulating the water... when the water is rising... ear pressure will increase in a small pipe leading up to the pressostat.) What can it be?...

Lime:
if you have lime in your water it can block the intrance to the pressostat after som years. test if this is the problem..

if this is the problem . you chould also clean you machine with acid. Do a wash with asid on 95 degrees (ask for this in a washingmachine shop).. ..

Dirt: take out the small thin pipe(of gum) and clean it.. (the dirt blockin is always nearby drum)

E13 error code on my electrolux washer what does it mean


You didn't specify model of your washing machine.
For Electrolux that usually means water leaks (Maximum overall water fill time exceeded (sum of all water fills between one drain phase and the next to avoid exceeding the maximum volume).
Could be:
Drain tube improperly positioned; Water pressure too low;
Water fill solenoid valve faulty; Water circuit on pressure switch is
leaking/clogged; Pressure switch faulty.

Why does my admiral washer fill and then drain as soon as it fills?


Washer fills with water then drains:

The critical question is. Is the water is just running down the drain but the pump isn't running. If it is being pumped out, and you can hear the pump running just the same as when it's emptying prior to spin then it could be aborting the wash because it is, or it thinks it's overheating. ( due to defective water temperature switch)

If the pump is failing to shut off then there is something wrong with the electronics. If your washer is a mechanical timer controlled device then you may have a sticking switch (which may explain if switching cycles does something for you). But if you have an electronic timer then you may be experiencing a board failure, where a cycle is being commanded when it is not intended to by design.


If water isn't being pumped out, but just draining away all the time, the washer will keep detecting there isn't enough water inside and top up with more.
Modern washing machines should be sophisticated enough to realize something's wrong and abort with an error, but if not, it may continue washing or rinsing for a short while before losing enough water to trigger more coming in again. It can get stuck on this cycle indefinitely and it's called siphoning.
Siphoning occurs when the end of the drain hose is lower than the level of the water inside the washing machine.
Try raising the hose and see what happens.
Also the drain hose should have some type of air gap where it fits into the stand pipe. It should not have an air tight fit.

Again Either it's siphoning down the drain due to an issue with the plumbing, it's overfilling, or also if it ( THE WATER) overheats then in some machines the software will employ a fill and drain tactic to cool down the water. The important thing is to work out which of these different faults is causing the problem by careful observation.


Other switch's to check would be the water inlet valve and the water pressure switch with a multi meter for continuity or OHMS.

And in some modern washers that come with THERMISTORS:
One symptom of a washing machine that thinks it's overheating and thus fills and drains at same time ( possibly because of a faulty thermistor) is if it's filling with cold water and pumping out at the same time. This is covered in this articleWashing machine fills and drains at same timealthough the same symptom can be caused by other faults.

By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

Washing machine constantly fills


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.

New washer, seems to work fine. I just question the water filling sequence at start of a wash. The water valve opens in 1 sec spurts about 6 times when drum is rotating in one direction. On 7th time it...


Every few months, new things are done to improve washing methods. If washing machine is washing clothing cleanly, and no apparant fault code comes up, then it is how the controller is programmed and meant to be.

Washer stops after fill


You should control the pressure switch on the machine. It is a circular object on the top of the machine, and it is connected to the drum with a thin hose. Remove the hose from drum and blow the the hose, you shuld hear 2 or 3 ticking sound from the switch. If you can not hear, change it with a new one. Also clean the thin hose, it can be blocked by detergent.

Keeps filling with water when turned on


A lot of wahing machines use a bunch of micro-switches to turn the various solenoids on and off. If your washer has that type of switch, it could be sticking, subsequently sending an "on" signal to the fill solenoid.

Washer will not stop taking on water although off.


If the machine is takin on water when it is off aswell as on then its the solenoid at the back these are what the hot and cold water pipe are connected to. its will one of them not both.

IF its only takin water in on the wash then its the presurre switch.. most commonly what happends is that a small tube comes up from the bottom of the drum and goes up along the side of the drum and is attached to an electrical pressure switch. when a machine is filling it traps air in that tube and the pressure increases upon that air which force the switch to open and cut of the water

so its either the solenoid or faulty pressure switch or the little pipe is either disconnected or damaged.

hope that helps

Bosch dishwasher


is all the water draining from the tub? if not the pressure switch will not reset and it will continue to try and clear it self...check drainage system.
2. pressure switch is jammed on..build up in the sensing chamber..common..or switch faulty...rarely
3. if water is in the bottom panel most have a flood switch which automatically operates the pump in case its over filling
