Wont run unless it is a mid sized load.

Our washer will over flow when warm or hat water is selected. It has now decided that unless the selector is on mid sized or larger it will not even fill.

You either have a problem with your water level selector switch or you have debris in your tube.. if you know how to take your washer apart you can check the tube... or if you can take out the console where the water level switch is unplug the tube from switch.. blow tube and plug back onto switch.. see if that works.. if the tube has a crack replace it.. good luck...

Error code of NF (no fill) on samsung top load washer (WA422PRHDWR/AA) even after checking lines for restrictions and ensuring clean line filters (red and blue). Now, when it does work, it will only do a...


Put the temp select switch on HOT, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. If there is water flow switch to COLD, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount should be approximately equal or slightly more than flow on HOT. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. Move selector to WARM, start machine. Now there should be twice the flow of water than there was with HOT and COLD temps. I suspect it is the HOT side of inlet water valve that has failed because machines usually rinse with COLD water.

Does not spin out clothes, keeps running in water as long as spin is enabled and does not follow cycle selected.


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Lid Switch Assembly If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.


Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer stops mid cycle the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Water Inlet Valve If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.

Main Control Board If the washer stops mid-cycle the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other causes first such as the lid or door switch and other components.
Timer If the washer stops mid cycle the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.

Washer does not fill with enough water.


The water level is controlled by a pressure switch connected to a long rubber hose that goes inside the tub. If the switch is defective or if the pressure hose is blocked the machine may under-fill.

Check also inlet hose and water pressure from the house.

Gcxrpo9odoww GE washer .. On fill up, it over flows onto floor?


Fill switch could be bad, or fill tube could be plugged making water not stop and it keeps filling. The fill tube goes from fill load selector switch to bottom of tub. Remove from top and blow it out. If this doesnt work replace water load size selector switch.

Model crtf1240aso. some water goes to washer, not enough to wash. door locks, led comes on, strainer is clear and water is going to washer, timer is rotating on its own


Not sure what is happening here. Sounds like a pressure switch that you think of as a "wash size" selector switch is seeing the correct amount of water for the size load you have selected, yet that amount is not there and the switch stops the water flow before it's reached the proper amount.
Could be a problem with that switch.
Could be that the flow of water is obstructed some way.
My bet: Could be that the water is not turned on to the washer fully and the timer times out the flow of water before its up to your desired level.

Whirlpool LXR9245EQ2 tub won't fill at beginning of cycle


HI, you have a combination issue. the Water fill level pressure switch and, the cycle selector switch are both damaged and, they should be replaced. the total cost of these switches will run you about $90.00.

We recommend the hands of a skilled service tech when repairing this type of electrical issue.

check your hose from the side of the tub all the way up to the water selector knob. if its loose or has even a pin sized hole in it, it will cause the maching not to sense it has reached the level selected.
