1)right wont be a water surge if the water is coming from underneath washer when it is switched of could be that you have a leak and what it is doing is water is collect around the bottom and then spilling over so tip washer back fill it up and see were its coming from, 2)your hot water valve could be sticking on which in that case needs replacing take your lid off and when washer is off try and listen for water flowing through pipe

Brown dirt-like looking "gunk" coming out of the washer

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

Kenmore 44832 hot water won't stop.


This is probably due to a pressure sensor fault, control board fault, or maybe as simple as a pipe come off.

The pressure sensor operates by air pressure building up in a sealed tube, and shuts off the water supply valve when the water presure reaches a limit.

Turn off machine, and drain the drum by placing the outlet pipe in a low bowl.

Remove the plug before opening machine.

Unscrew the screws along the top rear of the machine, and slide the lid back to take off.

Inspect the small hoses around the drawer area for wear, damage and if they are still attached. Order replacements if they are damaged.

The pressure switch will be connected to the end of one of them. It can be tested by simply removing it’s supply pipe and blowing hard down it. With a test meter, it can be tested for correct functioning.

If this is not the problem, it is likely the control board is faulty, or very rarely the valve may need replacing if it never turns the water off, and is constantly stuck.

If this leads to you solving the problem, please take a moment to rate as Fixya! so others may follow this advice. Thanks.

Lights On...Goes Out

there may be a "door closed" position switch that has been "bumped" during the process of soap dispenser drawer removal. the switch prevents accidental water leaks if door is open. your machine has a switch that is telling the control board that the door is open
