SOURCE: Unable to control water level

Some water may have got into the pressure switch. Remove the pressure switch and see if you can shake any water out. Make sure the cables go back on the correct terminals. make sure the tub is empty when you refit the pressure switch, so no water is allowed to enter the pressure tube

SOURCE: Maytag washer model # LAT8714A over fills

An overfill caused by a failed valve will occur even if the machine is unplugged. Trace amounts of debris from your plumbing etc or even a deterioration of valve parts themselves can cause it to pass water while off. This can be as slow as a drip but given time it will overflow. Water level switches are by necessity highly reliable parts and when they do fail they usually "fail safe" in other words not allow any current to the water valve. Overfills that are not due to a bad water inlet valve are usually traceable to a pinched, plugged or disconnected air hose. The location of the switch varies. Sometimes it's right behind the water level knob. On others like front loaders it's inside the machine, usually above the tub and at the end of a length of clear plastic tubing.

SOURCE: Maytag top loadind washer. Won't stop filling up.

Make sure your drain hose to the drain pipe is higher than the water in the tub if not it will keep running and going out the drain.
Also try taking the hose off the level switch and blow in it to be sure it's not stoped up. If is it won't let the level sw cut off. air should go through it. Good luck
When you unpluged the power and it ddn't keep runing the water valve should be ok.

You: Model #11047532601 Kenmore Residential washer doesn't turn on wath could be the cause???


see the following steps: use the common sense God bless you see the diagram.
1. No power to the washer
Make sure there's power getting to the washer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Lid switch
The washing machine may not function if the lid switch is defective. The switch is usually located near the door. Replace if found defective.

Whirlpool top load Model #WTW5500SQ0 water continually flows into washer, water has to be shut off at the wall


If the water continues to run when you unplug the washer - replace the water valve. Part# 8578343
If it stops when you unplug the washer - problem is likely in the water level switch or silicone tubing coming to it. If the tubing is attached to both the tub and the water level switch and there is no holes/cracks in it - replace the water level switch. Part numbers: switch 8577844, tubing 3347780

My maytag washer model lav3600aww continues to overfill and overflows


Hi There
I have found some stuff for you to read and hope this helps you. Let me know how it goes.
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.
thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

WASHING MACHINE IT CONTINUES TO FILL WITH WATER AND OVER FLOWES DOES NOT GO THROUGH AGITATION CYCLE


If the machine is not recognizing the water level, and continues to fill...the pressure switch is most likely bad

With a model #, we can be more exact and point you toward a replacement part.

Keeps filling with water


The water level in a washing machine is determined by the pressure switch. The switch is located behind the load selector, water level, load size (has various names depending on model and manufacturer) knob on the operator console. If the switch malfunctions, the water will not shut off and the washer will overflow.

Now...before assuming the switch is defective, a common problem that occurs is the small air hose on the pressure switch coming loose or leaking. This air hose attaches from the wash tub to the pressure switch. The pressure swtich senses the change in air pressure as the tub fills and shuts the water off at the selected level. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r762094-washer_overflows

To access your pressure switch, unplug the washer and open the operator console. Look for a clear plastic hose. If it is NOT attached, you may have found your problem. Reconnect and test operate.

If it IS attached, check the entire length of the hose all the way to the wash tub for any cracks of leaks. In addition, remove the electrical connection(s) and check for corrosion. Clean if necessary.

If all these preliminary steps don't solve your problem, replace your pressure switch. Read through the link I provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope you find this information helpful.

Water won't stop filling washing machine.


Hi, Will the water shut off if you turn the timer off or unplug the washer?
If it shuts off when power is turned off to the washer, you need to look into the water level switch. If turning off power to the washer will not stop the water, you need to change the inlet valve.
Please let me know so I can assist you further.

Thanks

Admiral Top Load Washer Model LNC6762B71 overflowed


Remove the control console cover. Find the water level switch.
It has a small tube attached to it.
Remove the tube and blow air through it. It is probably stopped up. Reattach it to the water level switch.
Look over the length of the tube and may sure it is not pinched.
Set the washer to spin and run spin for about 1 minute.
Then run water on a lower level and see if it shuts off.
If not replace the water level switch.
