SOURCE: Overflowing washing machine

check the pressure switch . its circluar in shape with 6/8 wires attached, and a small nipple with a 10mm pipe attached. as the water rises in the drum air is pushed up thru this pipe which when working ok , eventually pushes against a switch .hence its name. so, if there is damage to this pipe( maybe rubbing against the drum) the passage of air escapes before reaching the switch. if the pipe is ok then check the switch by blowing up the pipe (with the power off ) and u should hear a small click inside the switch. if not replace

To get into the machine read THIS first.After you have accessed the innards then you can easily remove and check the water valve. . Hook the water up to the valve. Get a suicide cord and apply 120 vac to each of the coils and see if they open.

you can swap the hot and cold valves over and see if this fixes the problem as it sound like your cold valve is faulty but not the hot valve.

SOURCE: How do I replace the water intake valve on my

Whirlpool, Kitchen Aid, Kenmore, Roper, Estate, after 1985
• The valve will be mounted to the back of the washer with two screws. However, you must remove the valve from inside the washing machine, and this requires you remove the entire washer cabinet, which consists of the top, front and sides.
• Remove the two screws in the lower corners of the control panel.
• Lift the control panel up high enough so it stays up and back.
• Disconnect the wire harness connector.
• Using a flathead screwdriver, snap out the two gold-colored spring clips at the top of the cabinet on the left and right sides.
• The cabinet will now lift up at the back. Pull the cabinet up 10-12 inches and then slide it forward 2 inches.
• Remove the cabinet completely and set it aside.
• The valve will be on the right side of the washer at the back. It’s the device to which the water fill hoses are attached.
• Label the wires from the valve and remove them.
• Remove the water feed tube(s) from the valve.
• Remove the screws holding the valve to the back panel.
• Install the new valve in the reverse order.
• Reinstall the cabinet. (Note: As you follow this procedure, do not force the cabinet in any way. When done properly, the cabinet will go back together very smoothly.) First, tilt the cabinet toward you 10-12 inches while you “walk” the cabinet back onto the lower frame of the washer. (This will be easier if you have the washer lid open so you can see inside the cabinet at the same time.) The front edge of the cabinet slides underneath the base frame, and the sides of the cabinet rest on top of the base frame.
• When the cabinet is resting on the frame squarely, check to be sure the back of the washer is aligned with the cabinet. There are two plastic strips attached to the back of the washer that must line up with the sides of the cabinet as you set the cabinet down.
• Reinstall the two spring clips at the top.
• Reattach the wire harness connector.
• Rotate the control panel back down and reinstall the two screws.
• Flush out the water fill hoses.
• Reattach the water lines.
• Turn on the water.
• Check for and correct any leaks.
• Restore power and test.
Hope this helped you and best wishes.

Hy, I have a washmasine bosch WAE28267SN that sow me an error E02 that's the error. Somebody can help me with some tips Thanks


The E02 error means that the washer is slow to fill. This can be caused by a problem with the incoming water hoses, the water valves or the washer draining as it fills.

The first thing to check is the incoming water if you have very little water in the washer. Make sure that the shut-off valves have been opened fully. If they were fully open, close them. If they were closed, check if that solves your E02 problem. Next remove the water hoses. A damaged anti-flood hose can reduce the water flow to a trickle. Clean the filters at both the shut-off valves and the intake valve on the washer. Replace the hoses at the shut-off valves. With a bucket below the hoses, turn on the shut-off valves and check that you are getting good flow. Now, attach the hoses to the washer. Check if the washer fills properly.

Check that the drain hose is positioned so that the outlet is above the water line of the washer. If your E02 issue continues and no water gets into the machine, then the inlet valve could be stuck in the closed position. If the washer is filling and the E02 error persists, then the water flow sensor may be a problem. This sensor has air tubes that can become clogged. Make sure that they have no dirt. There are other parts in this sensor that could be damaged.

Unfortunately, I don't have a source for parts for this washer. Some Bosch water inlet valves are available here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/bosch-washer-valve.html . If your washer is under warranty, contact Bosch.

I hope this helps.

Errpr code 4e on samsun aqua jet vrt


A 4E code on Samsung washers means that the washer isn't filling properly or the sensor isn't detecting the water flow. First, make sure that the water shut-off valves are open. Next make sure that the drain hose outlet is positioned above the fill level of the washer. (This avoids the water being suctioned out of the tub.)

Turn off the shut-off valves and disconnect the fill hoses from the washer and the valves. Clean the filters in the washer and at the valves. Reconnect the hoses to the valve and place a bucket under the other end. Open the valves and check that you have good water flow from both hoses. You may want to replace the hoses. (Some washer fill hoses are designed to clamp shut if they detect a leak. This anti-burst feature will reduce the water flow to a trickle. Since the washer fill sensor detects the amount of water in the tub within 8 minutes, that will trip the error.)

If the washer isn't filling and there is plenty of water coming from the water line, the fill valve probably failed in the closed position. If the water level is rising, then the sensor is probably faulty.

Please add a comment with the full model number of your washer. Then I may be able to point you to the parts. If the washer is under warranty, contact Samsung.

I hope this helps.

What is LF message


LF means a long fill was detected. This means that the washer sensor did not sense enough water coming into the unit in the first 8 minutes after starting the wash cycle.

There are several things that you can check. First, make sure that the incoming water pressure is good. You can try replacing the intake hoses and checking the filters on both sides (inside the washer and at the shut-off valves). (When you take the hoses off the shut-off valves, put a bucket under the outlets and check the flow rate.) Some intake hoses will seal themselves if they detect a leak. This will significantly reduce the water flow. If the filters are clogged, you get a similar restricted flow.

Next, check that the end of the drain hose is not positioned below the fill level of the washer. This will cause the water to be suctioned out of the tub as fast as it fills.

If the water is flowing well, the intake valves or the water pressure sensor (which detects the change in the weight of the tub) could be bad or have a wiring harness problem.

I hope this helps.

I get error FE- book says unplug and call a tech. Is this something I can fix myself?


FE error means that the water is filling past it's set point. You may have a broken water valve that won't shut off when it's in the filling mode. You can check by running the washer and watching the water fill. If the water level fills above the bottom of the glass, you have a water valve that's not shutting off. Replace the water valve.

I have the 2 hoses coming off the back,, my problem is,, the water runs into tub as to fill BUT doesnt stay its goes straight out hose so the tub never fills??/


The outlet solenoid valve is either stuck open or there is an erroneous signal from the control unit being sent to the valve. Disconnect the wires from the valve (with the unit disconnected from the electrical outlet) and try to fill it. If it still runs through, inspect the valve to see if it is stuck or jammed open.

New Pegasus Dual Flush Toilet Water does not enter Toilet bowl


There is a small plastic tube that comes from the fill valve and attaches onto the overflow tube on the flush valve. If no water is coming out of that tube, then it is clogged internally. You can remove the tube from the fill valve and take a small piece of wire or a straight pin to try and clear it from the outside. If that doesn't work, then I would recommend replacing the fill valve. They are inexpensive to replace. If you don't know how to get into the fill valve's internal guts at the top, then I would recommend replacement of the valve. One more thing, there also could be a water saver where the outlet is on the little tube I just explained. It is usually light blue, you can remove that and discard it.

Water coming from bottom of machine


If this only happens when the machine is filling the hose leading to the top of the tub may be leaking. Before it fills this hose is disconnected from the water supply by a closed solenoid valve. There are two valves which feed into a common hose that comes up to the top of the tub where the water runs into the tub. The leak does not happen after the tub fills because all the water leaks out and no new water runs in. These hoses are usually very small and very inexpensive and held on with clamps. They can usually be replaced by removing a small panel near the hose attachment location.
