SOURCE: Hi, Mine is a
I'm going to
presume that when the machine is powered off there is no water coming in,
thereby demonstrating that the inlet valve is not jammed open. If water IS still entering the machine even
when it's powered off, please add a comment to this thread and we can discuss
the matter further.
If the inlet valve is not the issue then this is almost certainly the result of the fill sensor failing.
Essentially, the sensor is a bellows device that activates a microswitch. A pipe is connected to the device at one end and to the water level in the drum at the other end. As the machine fills and water reaches the end of the pipe and advances up it, the air pressure in the pipe increases, inflating the bellows. As the bellows inflate, they press on and trip a microswitch inside the sensor and cut the power to the water inlet valve, stopping the water flowing into the machine when it reaches the correct, measured level according to the pressure in the pipe. If the device fails, it may not be cutting power to the inlet valve.
Take the top off the machine, if you look down the side you will see a (typically clear plastic) tube about the thickness of a pencil, connected to a circular device about the circumference of a coffee cup and about two inches thick.
This is the sensor. Problems with it may be:
It has come unclipped from where it should be mounted. The device is VERY sensitive and if it has slipped out of place, over or underfilling is common. (Reposition the sensor, hopefully you can see where it came from!)
The pipe that is connected to it has come off, so the air pressure that the sensor measures is not increasing as the machine fills (push the pile back on and all is well)
The machine has been subject to some trauma (Such as a very uneven load that has made it shake violently. The starting level of the water that is in the bottom of the pipe is now wrong and the pressure sensor is being affected. (Remove the pipe from the sensor, blow down the pipe to get any water that should not be there out and then replace the pipe).
A wire is off the sensor (Take a look around and re-fit any loose wire).
The sensor has actually failed and requires replacement. (A dealer in these goods will be able to find you a replacement, if you are visiting a dealer, take the unit, along with the make and model with you so they can match it easily. Failing this, search for a part on the internet and match it to your make and model).
