Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Water level does not work. When filling up for washing the water overfills and simultaneously empties when the level reaches the top. This happens regardless if I use Auto or one of the levels. It also happens during the rinse cycle. If I manually shut the water off at what I think the correct level is, the washer resumes working.

My speedqueen top loader starts to fill up with water and every once in a while it overfills completely and overflows. It does not happen every time. Where can I check the switch /mechanism to stop...


There is a reset water level function on the front panel. To alter the water level each time you need to reset your water level . Ours used to do the same thing before my wife realized she was over filling it.

Does not stop filling with water


It's overfilling If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve Water-level switch Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve. Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Does not stop filling with water


A machine that overfills or underfills can often have a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to shut off the water. Make sure there is no damage to or obstruction in the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad switch. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

My Kenmore 70 is also overfilling...


Sounds like it could be a faulty water level switch. A defect or an obstruction can mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. This switch raises the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level rises, the pressure increases on the air in the plastic tube. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch and turns off the water. It also signals the washer to begin the wash cycle. Clean out any obstruction in the plastic tube or replace the water level switch. Hope this helped.

OVERFILLED AND FLOODED HOUSE


1 of two problems happened.
1) either the water level sensor went bad. Which tells the water inlet valve when to shut off and the machine to start operating.
2) The water inlet valve has failed. This comes from the water hose and fills the washing machine.

Machine over filling even when set on min. simpson enduro 701


When the machine is overfilling , it means that there is a problem with the inlet valve (valve not closing) or with the water level switch, that should turn off the valve when water reaches level.

See the suggestion from It's overfilling at repairclinic:

Water-inlet valve
