I don't believe the fill level is time dependent since we have very little or no variance in fill  and our well system can be anywhere between 30-60#.
By the way, I just noticed you posted under 'dishwasher.' I don't think you wanted that, I suggest you repost with the proper name and model number of your washer. I hope our dishwasher never gets 'filled!'

My washer wont rinse does everything else what could be ? x


WASHER WILL NOT RINSE:
If your washer doesn't go through the washer rinse cycle, the most likely cause is the water valve. What happens is the water valve will stop letting cold water into the washer; therefore, once the washer gets to rinse it will either stop or not do anything during the whole rinse cycle.
This is because when you selected your water temperature, you may have selected warm/cold or hot/cold. The hot water came in and you didn't notice any problems. When it got to rinse, the cold water the cold water won't come in. Therefore, the washer does nothing.
The item to check would be your water inlet valve. Check it for continuity with a multi meter it should show Ohms or a closed circuit. To test it when water is overflowing unplug the unit and see if it still overflows or continues to fill. If it stops when unplugged. Then it is not a water inlet problem but an electrical signal problem going to ur water inlet valve. Possibly from the panel or board. You can also do a live volt test to see if it is getting the full 120 current, but be sure to unplug unit before testing as this is a live test.
Another test u can do to check the water inlet valve, first cut the water off and remove the hoses off the back of the washer. Then one at a time point the hoses inside the washer tub and turn the water back on. If you don't have good water pressure, turn the water back off and remove the strainer that should be in one end of the hose. Inspect the strainer to see if it is stopped up, clean it and reinstall it. Now repeat this test. If you have good water pressure now, reinstall hose and your problem is fixed.

If you still don't have good water pressure, the problem is in your house plumbing and you need to call a plumber. If you had good water pressure the first time you performed the test, the water valve is bad and needs replacing.

TIMER
If your washer doesn't go through the washer rinse cycle the timer may be the problem. Sometimes the timer gets stuck in the middle of the cycle or won't turn at all. If the washer runs, but the timer doesn't turn, the timer is bad and needs replacing.
Do you have anti-flood hoses leading to the machine. If you do there is probably a loose tube in the back causing a small leak. When the hoses detect that water is still flowing after a certain amount of time due to the leak it shuts down and causes the machine to turn off during the rinse/spin cycle

Skips "soak/prewash" function and moves from "add garment" to "wash" function. never fills with water. all hoses connected and water turned all the way on.


It sounds to me like the fill level switch is stuck, so it thinks the tub already has enough water. Since water pressure and flow vary at different installations, fill is controlled by a level sensor switch, not a timer. Typically there's a tube with one end connected to a fairly low point on the outer tub. The other end is connected to a diaphragm switch in the control panel. As water fills in the tub and tube, it forces the air in the tube into the switch, causing it to indicate a full state. If the switch is stuck in that full state, you would get the symptom you describe.

Find the parts drawings from one of the many internet parts suppliers to see where the switch and fill tube are. Take the tubing off at the top end and blow through it, in case the bottom end is clogged with lint. Then use that tubing or another piece to blow lightly into the switch, You should be able to hear it click and clack as it switches from low to full states and back.

If you know how, use an ohmmeter to check that the switch is actually changing states. Usually these switches have three terminals, Common, NO (Normally Open), and NC (Normally Closed).
--When you don't blow, there should be conduction ONLY between Common and NC. (This is the empty state which must reached before Spin will start.)
--When you are blowing, there should be conduction ONLY between Common and NO. (This is the full state which must be reached before Wash starts.)

Washer adds water whilst extracting


The washer will add water in the rinse/pin cycle even while it is pumping out. This is to give the clothes a wash while spinning to remove excess soap suds. Could this be your problem
