In order for the pressure switch to work it has to get pressure.
The switch is located near the top of the right side panel and can be seen by removing the top cover. There is a small pressure hose that leads to the switch and should be checked for crackes or chafing. There are three round sponges on this hose to keep it from rubbing on the moving parts. I had to replace mine after just over a year so I used a heaver hose with the same inner diameter. I used a 3/16 fuel line from Princess Auto and two new 3/8 stainless hose clamps.

SOURCE: I HAVE A GE WASHER

There is a pressure sensor that needs to be looked into. USUALLY, there is a chamber, on the outside of the washer tub, and out of the top of it is a small plastic hose. This hose runs up to an electrical switch.
Too much soap, over time, can plug up this system, so the machine has no idea how much water is going in...and keeps filling..... Sometimes the hose comes loose, but this makes a fairly immediate water leak, so I suspect something is plugged.

SOURCE: "AQM9D49USK" My washer/dryer doesn't fill

Hi

If the washer won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly. Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

SOURCE: My washer fills and doesn't

The fill switch is bad. That's the only "safety" on the washer that will shut the water off after reaching desired depth. To test it, run your machine on the various water levels. For example, start out on the low setting. If the water doesn't shut off after the tub is half full, then it's the fill switch inside the unit next to the tub.

My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Washer doesn't stop filling with water


If this only happens when the machine is turned on,the tube from the tub to the water level switch is pinched or broken. If the clear plastic tube is not pinched or broken,the water level switch in the control console is bad. If the machine lets water through when it is in the OFF position,the water valve where the hoses connect are bad.

Washer over fills with water


They work on a pressure switch. It has a rubber hose that connects to the bottom of the drum and runs up to the top control panel. When water fills up into the hose the air pressure trips a switch. So either the switch is bad and not making contact when it clicks. Or the hose is leaking air so it won't let it build up enough pressure. I had one that a mouse got up into and chewed a hole in the hose. You can take the back panel off of the top control panel and let the water in and listen to see if the switch clicks when it gets fulll. If it does and doesn't stop filling then it is a switch.
Or it could be the water shutoff switch where the water hoses hook up. If it is that then it will run all the time, more than likely. Is that what it is doing? Does the washer start running and water keeps coming in? Because it wont start running until the pressure switch is enganged. If it starts running and keeps coming in it is that. Good luck hope this helps.

Hello
I am familiar with this problem and 99% of the time it is caused by the washer lid safety switch, if the switch doesn't function the washer control will not let the cycle run past filling the tub with water. You can buy the part and get information on how to install it from a company called www.repairclinic.com

I have a washer kemore 600 series, it pumps water in but will not do anything else. Is there a reset button on the motor or pump?


Hello there and welcome to fixya
If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped? try to unplug for 15 min then reset the home breakeer than plug in the machine again and try Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. To determine if the lid switch has failed, watch the part testing video . at repair clinic.com Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse. or it will fill but will stop after that

My maytage washer went off balance. just discovered it and it doesn't drain, spin, wash the timer works and it also fills. It just clicks. How do I fixi t?


If the inlet valve works to bring in water to the drum and still the washer does not start then the water level sensor can be defective.
You need to check on the voltage on the timer controller unit to confirm if there is a output even after the water fills up. also check the door switch , if open the washer will not start.

Washer filled with water but won't do anything


AT the time that you describe, the lid switch must be closed. Check that switch.
