Machine fills with water and then overflows?

FL 1032/B Washing Machine. Machine fills with water and then overflows? I have been told that I need to remove the top and then check for a hole in the rubber air pipe inside, and repair with black tape. Problem is, how do I remove the top of the machine to get inside? I remove the 2 nuts/screws at the back, but the top does not lift off? Is there a hidden catch to release?

You have to slide it back about an inch or two, then lift off. The pipe is reed like thin, and goes from the pressure switch to the drain area below.

Kenmore model 11027522600


if it doesnt over fill/overflow then its probably a dead spot on the timer,first fill it with water,then remove the pressure hose off the lower right side of the tub(you may need to put your finger over tub pressure dome hole if water escapes when doing this)thenblow into this tube with machine on,if it starts to run then its either a plugged pressure hose,if not its the timer

Whirlpool cabrio washing machine


FL error code generally means 'flood condition' which is telling you the machine is overfilling with water with water.

Try pressing STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

If the condition persists the water fill valve or sensor may be faulty and may need replacement.

Water keeps going and overflows


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

You will have to open the top panel for steps below

Water level control is handled by the water level pressure switch inside the top panel. It is about 3.25 inches in diameter, has 3 wires connected to it and a hose that looks like a small vacuum line.

Check that vacuum looking line for any holes, kinks or disconnects.

You will need about 3 feet of the same knid of line available from any autoparts store for this test.

Remove the machine side hose and connect the 3 ft hose you just obtained. DO NOT drop the machine hose into the machine.

Place the timer on the wash cycle and start the cycle
Result = fill

Force air into the hose orally until you hear a click.
Result = fill stop agitation begin

If it does not pass this test then the pressure switch is bad.

If water never stops flowing the water inlet valve has debris internally and will probably have to be replaced.

Don't forget to reconnect the machine side hose to the pressure switch.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Kelly

Then remove the vacuum

My washing machine keeps overflowing whats wrong


Top load or front? If top loader, the pressure fill switch may be unplugged or broken. Hose leads from the switch to the tub. If the hose is disconnected or has a hole in it, or is plugged the washer will continue to fill with no shutoff.

Washing machine water will not shut off when filling the machine


If your unit keeps filling with the power off, it is the water fill solenoid(s). If the machine overflows it is the float switch. Check out partselect.com and put in your model number. It will show a picture of the part and the price.

If you need more help, post another comment.

Thanks,

Tim

Wo'nt stop filling with water and overflows.


If it fills with water while the machine is off replace the water inlet valve.
It is only overfills while machine is on, check the water level switch and the plastic tube going to the water level switch. The tube may be pinched or have a hole it it.

Overflowing water


If the water comes out when filling, check your water valve by unplugging the washer when it is filling. If the water still runs, replace the valve. If the water stops, check the small tube that goes from the water pressure switch (in the consul) to the bottom of the tub. This must be connected without any holes or obstructions. If this is ok, replace the water pressure switch.
