Replace the inlet water valve. (the part the hoses screw onto) If you confirm your model number, I can provide you with the part number. (get the number off the model sticker from the machine)

The cold water continues to fill the tub and not shut off


There is a pressure switch fitted to all washing machines.basically a tube outside the drum that has air inside it which responds to water going into the drum.as the air in the tube compresses it activates the switch to shut off the water and sends a new command to controller board to turn the drum and start washing.when it doesn't switch off tells me that the tube has too much water in it and won't shut off supply.you can locate the tube and empty it so it just has air in it reconnect and see if that fixes it.if it doesn't then next place to look is the switch itself and controller board.

If I choose to have the water full to either large or even a medium level. It keeps feeling up and won't turn off. keeps running water. Why?


If water won't shut off even if you unplug the washer, then the water valve is likely stuck and will need to be replaced. If the water shuts off when water level switch is on low, but overflows when set on medium or high, it is more often the water level switch itself. Before replacing, be sure the tube going to the side of the tub is clear and not kinked. Remove the tube from the switch and blow thru it, reattach and try filling again. If it works, you should be ok, if not then replace water level switch.

Water doesn't shut off


Hi There
I have looked up your problem that you are having. Read this and let me know how it goes. Hope this gets you in the right direction.
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.\
Thank you for writing to fix ya.

My roper washing machine wont stop filling, water just keeps running until it runs over the top of tub and onto floor. I was just wondering if the switch controls the water level of is there something on...


If when you shut off or unplug the machine, the water stops response #1 is correct.
If shutting it off or unplgging it, doesn't work and you have to shut the water off at the shut off valves, the dual water valve is bad.

Where is the water valve? the water keeps running when it suppose to stop. I noticed on the spin cycle when it finished the water was running when i opened the top to get the clothes out.


The first thing I say is unplug the washer. If the water is stillcoming in,(which it will on a stuck valve) shut off the waterfaucets. If that is not possible shut the water meter off. If you canstop the washer with the timer then I would say instead of a bad valveyou have a plugged water level pressure hose. Look at this diagram: water%20level%20operation.jpgAs you can see the rubber tube from the bottom of the tub allowsair pressure to push against the switch till it shuts down the valveand starts the wash cycle. Remedy this problem: Simply remove the tubefrom the switch and blow it out. Use them lungs!. Get that sand andtrash out of the sump. Reconnect the hose tightly and pump out anystanding water. Then restart the machine. If you have a good tightconnection the machine should start working like normal. No partsneeded!

If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It need replacing.

Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tube. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.

Water does not stop at the proper level. Keeps running and will overflow. Once it gets to the spin cycle is does not continue to run. If I let it fill, cut off the water at the valve and then refill it for...


Sounds like it could be the water level switch. An obstruction or defect in the water level switch will make it not tell the water to turn off, overfilling the machine. The switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear plastic tube between the switch and the bottom of the washers outer tub. As the water level comes up, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When it reaches high enough, it trips the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the wash cycle. Clear away any obstruction in the tube or replace the switch. Hope this helps.

Water continues to run and over flow as cycle won't start


Hi!

There are two main reasons due to which the water is overflowing out of washing machine---

1. 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.
2. 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
