You need to clarify EITHER Cold or Hot water. Usually it's the Cold water relay switch is "Stuck". You can remove the top of the washer (Un-Plug the dam thing first). Facing the washer like you normally do, Look to the mid-left, back of the washer. There are Two VALVES (COLD-COMPLEX AND HOT-SIMPLE). These are solenoids which are just a magnet that goes up and down when powered. You can "gently" tap each one with the handle of a screw driver. I herd that this works (It doesn't) so replace the Cold Water Valve (Expensive) about $40 +/- $10. The Easy one (Hot water) is only $12 and has one solenoid. Of course if One fails, the Other one is just waiting for you to complete THAT job to fail a week, month, or 10 minutes later. So do them both, throw them away, and then your water will fill as IT IS SUPPOSE TOO!

look for a stuck or otherwise malfunctioning water fill valve. one way to check, turn the machine off and see if the water is still running to fill it. start with that and let me know.

Cold water won't stop before rinse cycle


if it fails to stop running only at the rinse part of the cycle it is probably in the timer as the solenoid valve has to cut the water off when the washer fills for the wash cycle too. fills for wash cycle and cuts off water, washes and drains, refills for rinse cycle and water just keeps running? does this every time you run it? that's in the timer. bad solenoid (water inlet valve) would keep running even on wash fill up. hope this helps.

The machine keeps filling up at the end of a cycle so I have to make sure I empty it in time.


If the water keeps filling, your water level sensor is probably bad. If it keeps filling at each cycle, your washer may be out of time.

Fill will not stop


you may have a problem with your pressure switch. or sometimes they call it the water level switch.

try to use it in the small level and see if it would stop filling around medium or large quantities of water.

if it would stop filling , then replace the water level sensor.

tnx 4 using fixya,
