Re: washing machine overflowing

I'd have a look at your water level detector to start with. Usually a narrow bore hose running from near the bottom of the drum to a pressure switch somewhere near the top of the machine. Most common problem is that the hose gets blocked with gunk. With the machine off and drained, try removing the hose and giving both it and the barb on the drum that it came from a good clean through. A.

How to fix amana w10240534c washer wont fill?

check your water inlet valve. Check it for continuity with a multi meter it should show Ohms or a closed circuit. To test it when water is overflowing unplug the unit and see if it still overflows or continues to fill. no fill If it stops when unplugged. Then it is not a water inlet problem but an electrical signal problem going to ur water inlet valve. Possibly from the panel or board.

In the begining of was the water won't stop filling, it overflows and it won't go to the wash cycle (adjetate) however I can turn it to the rinse cycle and it will drained and spins?

Possible that the water level sensor has failed.Shut down washer and trace the sensor which is a pressure activated switch from the drum overflow. the switch can be activated by blowing and checking continuity. if so replace the unit

Hi I have a Simpson 7.5kg top loader machine model no 22s701E. The water keeps continually filling. I have to turn the taps off for it to stop otherwise it overflows everywhere.

Water inlet valves operate when power is supplied to them. If you turn the machine off or pull the plug and the water stops it means that the inlet valve is ok. If the water continues to run with no power to the valve then the valve is faulty..
Replacing a crook inlet valve is not a big job for a tech..
Good luck....Nomess

Help! My fisher paykel washing machine won't stop filling up!

If the water continues to fill even if unplugged the water valve is sticking and needs replaced. if removing power turns the water off the water level pressure switch is bad or there is something plugging the sensor tube somewhere.

Kenmore 80 Series Overflow

We've now had this happen three times and the exact same thing caused it all three times.

If the water level selector knob hasn't "clicked" into one of the given load levels on the control panel(i.e. the knob is in between levels) it will continue to fill until you discover water everywhere and turn the knob until it "clicks" into a level.

As far as I know, it has nothing to do with loose hoses or bad switches, it's bad design. There seems to be no safety mechanism to turn off the water if you over- or under-shoot the desired water level.

Kenmore 70 series washer

if the water was overflowing from the top of the tub it sounds like the pressure hose came loose. tilt the control panel back and you will prob see the hose that connects to the left side (where you adjust the water level) has come loose. cut about 1/4 inch off of it and re-connect it.
