This is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. If your model number is correct, the lid switch for your washer is located under the right hand side of the washer casing along the wash tub rim. The switch is activated by a small plastic piece on the washer lid (called a "lid strike") through a small hole. The switch contacts close when you shut the lid. In many cases, the lid switch either comes loose, or the lid strike breaks off. In both cases, the washer will exhibit the symptoms you describe. Open and close the washer lid and listen for a distinctive "clicking" sound as the switch is activated. If you cannot hear the switch, make sure the lid strike is intact and the mounting screws for the lid switch (located around the wash tub opening on the casing) are tight. Sometimes, all it takes is to tighten the lid switch screws to realign it with the lid strike. If the switch is defective, or the strike is missing, parts can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number (include the "110" prefix), which can be found on a nameplate under the washer lid. The lid switch will be listed under the "Top and Cabinet" heading as item number 11. The lid strike will be listed as item number 20. Other sites that offer competitive pricing are repairclinic.com and appliancepartspros.com. If you require instructions on how to replace the switch, you may use the following link:

If you have questions, or if the diagnosis is incorrect, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Why would a washing machine fill to proper level and then stop. no action after filling.


Power was never the issue or it wouldn't have filled at all. Also the pressure switch that detects water level must be okay since it stopped filling at the proper level. That leaves the control board or a relay that the control board uses to start the drum motor.

The water will not go into tub, keeps overflowing and flooding my laundry room


If the water will stop filling when you stop the machine, then you need to replace the "pressure switch" on the unit. Here is the part to order.

If you have to turn the water off at the faucet to get it to stop filling, then you need to replace the "water inlet valve" on the unit. Here is that part to order.

Water sensor not working. Started a load of Laundry and the water did not shut off therefore flooding my whole Laundry room. How can I fix this myself?


Hello,

Their are 2 possibilites causing it to overflow

1) the water inlet valve that the hoses from the house plumbing attach to is sticking open,when it sticks it will stick open regardless if thier is power to the machine or not,so to determine if that is the problem,start the washer and quickly unplug or turn off circuit breaker ,if the water continues to fill, that valve is sticking,it is what to replaced

2) the water level switch is defective,do the same as far as starting it,if the fill stops when power disconected it's the water level switch that is in need of replacement

Good luck, i hope this helps

Softner Compartment won't drain


this may be a faulty valve that allows the water to fill the softner compartment.to check the draining capability remove the drawer and take it to a sink make sure it remains level you you sink tap or a cp of water and fill the compartment almost to the top and it should start draining once it starts to drain stop putting water in and watch it. it should finish draining by itself there will be some water left in it but only a small amount. if it does not drain clean it out.

Washer stopped after filling, small load


I would check and make sure the lid is not bent or bowed. If the middle part of the lid is too far down when closed, the machine thinks it's open and wont run an agitate or spin. If it is bent, just bend it back for a quick fix.

Water keeps going and going and going!


the water is draining back to the ocean. The drain hose was not emptied properly from its last use. Put the machine in spin cycle (about 5 minutes) only to spin out the water from the outer tub completely and retry washer. If still problem, then visual check drain hose that it still has a "rising" section higher in altitude than the water level of inner tub (when working properly) before it makes a U-turn downward to send back to the ocean. You can also test the drain hose by putting machine in fill mode and crimping off the hose (fold hose over) to simulate a good drain hose. At this test, you should not "feel" water running through the hose if successfully crimped.
