Question about Hotpoint VBXR1070W
The cold water solenoid valve does not shut off when the machine starts to agitiate and the tub overflows onto the floor of the laundry room. I do not thins it is the level sensor because if you wash in hot water the tub does not overflow until you get to the cold water rinse cycle. What confuses me is that the solenoid will open and shut during the spin/rinse cyle. What is the most likely cause for this? Oh somethiong I also for got to metion is the the solenoid will remain open even when you pull the push/pull switch out. How does the solenoid continue to get power when this switch is open?
The fill switch has a diaphragm that could be damaged and not closing properly. I have personally experienced this problem before. The way water could be getting by the switch (even with no power applied) is simply water pressure in the lines. I don't understand why it would work during the spin and rinse cycles, however. If you say it's not a pressure switch problem (level sensor), then I would invest in a new fill valve. I hope this helps.
