SOURCE: The washing machine will overflow, flooding water

ive included a solution to a similar problem that i solved earlier this week, i hope you find this helpfull...

"
I am assuming this is a top load washing machine.... the load size selector button has a hose attached to the back of it. This hose goes down to an overflow box mounted to the side of the tub. This tube often gets clogged and the machine cannot tell where the water level is. 1) dissconnect the tube from the level selector switch and ( w/it unplugged ) attach another tube to it and blow into it. you should hear a clicking sound. this means your level selector switch is functioning properly. if it does not click then it needs to be replaced. 2) dissconnect the tube from the level selector switch and ( w/it unplugged ) blow into the tube and you should hear air going into the tub, ( this is best performed with water in the tub ( bubbles ) )....hope this helps
Asker's Testimonial " Thanks rdrsp. When I took the control panel off, I found that the tube had fallen off the control valve. I put it back on with a band clamp. " - bill_marv460 "

SOURCE: GE Washer overfilled, now won't spin

Could possibly be that the water level switch in the console has gone bad.  Sometimes the small hose that connects the basket and the switch can come off, causing the overfill.  Sounds like maybe the water switch has gone bad though if I were to guess at it.  If it goes bad, it will send the timer a signal that its full, when its not.  Could also be a bad timer, but that only happens on rare occasions, but it does happen.  Let me know how it goes or if you need break down instructions, etc.  Jim

Remove the water level tube from the tub and clean out the gunk.
Reconnect it to the water level switch.

Very common with GE. To make sure you caught the problem you have to replace the pressure switch, air pressure hose, and clean out the air dome outlet that the air hose connects to. I have found a build up of the sludge, from the laundry soap fillers, in the air dome outlet and in the connecting hose. This plugs up the air pressure hose and gives the water level switch a false reading. I always recommend the customers get online, find a Melaleuca representative, have them sign you up, and buy their laundry soap directly from the company. Their soap will clean the sludge build up out of your washer and prevent this from happening again. We haven't found any other brand that will prevent this from recurring in your washer. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

Why is my GE washing machine flooding from bottom?


Chill out Mr. Sir. This is where you get to be a hero today.
Fortunately for you, washermachines and dryers are rather... big dumb equipment for the most part.

I highly advise you take apart the unit. They are big, but they are also simple. They are designed very well to be taken apart with minimal tools and experience. The panels usually unlatch after 2 - 8 screws. The wiring is simplistic and easy to follow with the eyes.

Something like a water leak should be very easy to find. You'll most likely find a cracked plastic fitting or something else that is crude and simple in form. I'm willing to bet that a simple treatment with epoxy glue or 30 minute cure super glue could fix it just fine. And even better if you find something that only needed a fixture to be re-situated and re-tightened.

Washer machines can vibrate allot so most likely you have something cracked or fallen loose. If you've ever had a washer or dryer repairman come over to fix something, they are usually done within 30 minutes. An average Joe like you could most likely get the job done in 3 hours or less.

Good luck!

What is the fl code mean


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

FL error indicates flood condition and is caused due to any overfill condition that occurs inside the washer. To clear the display you can press and hold the STOP/CANCEL button. Usually this error is caused when overfill switch trips due to excessive water in the tub. You can also try to clean the drain hose and check the water inlet valve. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

F1 code. No water left in machine nor on the floor, is this something we can look at ourselves?


Hi
Error F1 on your fisher & paykel means an overfill condition. One of the most common causes for an overfill fault is that the dishwasher cannot pump out the dirty water due to a plugged drain hose. Check the drain hose if it is clogged. Now remove the bottom drawer from the unit to inspect the flood switch. Remove the wire harness cover on the underside of the drawer. With the bottom cover off, unclip the wire harness, fill hose, and drain hose. Then unclip the linkage at the back of the drawer and lift the drawer off the slider arms. Now' you'll be able to look at the flood switch. Note the positions of the wires on the flood switch and remove them. Then unclip the switch housing from the base panel. The switch housing contains one switch for each drawer. The switches are wired normally closed (NC) and each switch has three spade connections, so it's important to note where the wires went. Now clean the contacts and let it dry. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Fl code on kenmore calypso cannot clear


this is the fl code on a whirlpool calypso which is probably the same since kenmore is just a name,, whirlpool built the machine if u didnt know kenmore doesnt build anything they just put their name on things... (FL is a flood conditon.) FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

OVERFILLED AND FLOODED HOUSE


1 of two problems happened.
1) either the water level sensor went bad. Which tells the water inlet valve when to shut off and the machine to start operating.
2) The water inlet valve has failed. This comes from the water hose and fills the washing machine.

My GE Washer model # WDSR2080DAWW is overfilling unless I take the hose off the side that controls the load indicator switch and blow air into, once I do that, it will stop filling and work perfectly, how...


I fixed my washer by taking off the hose that controls the load indicator switch and blew air into it and it works like a charm, so please don't charge me 20 dollars cause i fixed it myself, thanks

Leaking door (Running Water)


being in the uk i dont know this appliance, but the fault is probably that it is overfilling caused by crap in the airchamber or the hose leading to the pressure stat blocked or a split in this hose
