Question about Washing Machines
I have a 7.2kg toploader that I bought two years back. The washmachine keeps draining the water that is coming in and ends up filling the water endlessly cause the level is never reached...meaning I can't do my laundry. Is there a valve or something thats not closing?
I have a problem with my LG 8.5kg WF-T852A washing machine.
The machine starts its wash and gets about 2 inches of water in the bottom and then it starts to pump the water out even though water is still going into it. After pumping for about 3 minutes it stops pumping all the while water still enters into the machine then the cycle starts again... Water starts to fill then it starts to empty again while still filling... Eventually it stops itself with a water inlet err fault displayed.
Hi my name is joyce
you have a water valve problem just as you suspected its not shutting off your water when its supposed to it is just continually letting water come in your machine, also if you are on a well system check the back of your machine where your lines come into your machine their is a wire mesh filter that protects trash from getting into this valve, but sometimes it gets through this, so just uncrew the pipes and check this. I had this problem, if you dont have a filtration system on your house I would stongly recomend one to prevent this from happening again. I have a well and this has been a problem for me.
let me know if I can help with anything else,

SOURCE: Water keep refilling
This is commonly caused by a condition known as "siphoning". The following link explains:
The washer is filled when the solenoids on the water inlet valve are activated, allowing water to flow through the fill hoses. Once the washer reaches a predetermined level (as determined by the load level selector dial), the pressure switch senses the water level and shuts off the inlet valve. If the pressure switch was causing this problem, your water level would continue to rise to the point that the washer would overflow. If the water inlet valve was defective and would not shut off, you not only would have a washer that would potentially overflow, but it would also continue to fill when the washer was not in use. The key to diagnosing your problem is the fact that the washer continually DRAINS and cannot maintain the water level. Take your drain hose and pull it up from the standpipe. If you had the hose shoved down in the standpipe too far, or if the drain hose was fitted too tight, a sucking sound may be heard as you pull the hose out. You should only have about 6 inches of hose in the drain. There needs to an air gap around the top of the standpipe as well. This prevents a vacuum from forming which causes the water to be siphoned from the wash tub.
Read through the link I provided and let me know if you have questions. If you require additional assistance, please let me know before rarting the solution. I hope this helps you.
