This could be a problem with the fill level control. Some experimentation with "misadjusting" the control should reveal whether it fills properly

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Top Loader leaks

It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time

During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. 


Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. 



During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 


All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. 


Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. 


Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

SOURCE: Kenmore 110 Top Load Washer-cold water fills extremely slowly

No it is probably the screen that is either in the end of the hose that attaches to the machine, and/or the screen is placed so that the cone is toward the machine instead of pointing away from the machine.
If the cone is pointing towards the machine any debris in the lines would collect and eventually fill the screen cone and slow or shut off water flow.

When my husband came home he took the washer apart and it was the pump. Small pin hole leak in this glob of gray sealer that seals the two plastic parts together. Just been waiting to fail, I'm sure. Thanks for your help.

Water keeps filling and overflowing when turned on but will stop when turned off, how can I fix this?


Could be a faulty fill switch. The fill switch is often an air pressure switch. As the tub fills a small internal air pressure is created which is sent to the switch via a small hose that sometimes becomes blocked or displaced.

If not it is possibly a fault with the control board.

ERROR CODE 1E SAMSUNG TOP LOADER


The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that the washer is not filling with water. Check to be sure the water supply valves are open. Also, check to be sure the water supply hoses aren't kinked or clogged. Next, remove the hoses from the washing machine and run water into a bucket to test the pressure and flow of the water. If all of these check out and you have good water pressure and flow to the machine, you should replace the water inlet valve. TO TEST IT SEE PICS ATTACHED

Hot water will not enter machine. Screen filter is clean. Cold is OK.


There's no hot water Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally. If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests: Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on. Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct. Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace it.

Top loader washing machine does not fill up


very simple, your drain hose is below 4 ft, your drain hose should go in the hole between the hot and cold water, if you dont see a hole then it is covered, you need to knock out the hole...

The service light remains on and the washing will not start.


Hi, make sure there's water in tap that feed machine, if there's, lock off you water, remove hose where it's connected to machine. valve on machine where you remove hoses from, check inside you will see strainer, clean any debris that's there, could be blockage of water entering machine, washer will start only when there's water in it. if it were clog up and you clean it, then connect hoses back to machine, and try it. if that didn't work, then you will need to check, water solenoid valve, that's the same valve, your two water hoses connected to, sometimes they burnt out, especially when there's low water pressure in tap, you didn't say what type of washer you got, top loader or front loader, if you got a top loader, fill it manually(bucket) and it will start, if water solenoid valve burnt out, if you got a front loader, you won't be able to fill it manually, if these tips didn't work, you will have to call mechanic, to make other checks. good luck

Tub overflow


Remove the hose from the water level switch and blow air through it.
The water level switch air hose has a clog in it.

My top loader washing machine is leaking when filling


your problem could be from the water level pressure switch, ( selector of water level ) or from the pressure hose, in most cases the hose that goes with the pressure switch is clogged with dirt.

you need to open the unit and find the single hose that connects with the switch, in some cases it is usually clogged from the bottom, cut it out and make sure to leave some room not to over streched the hose,

the switch rarely broke, it is usually the hose, (transparent)

Washer should fill, remove hoses, check screens in hoses and or valves on machine for clogs. Verify water valves at the source are turned on. If all this checks, you need new valve installed on your washer.
