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?

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
inside the washer is a fill valve it has a tube from the bottom of the tub leading to this valve if the tube is blocked with sope the washer over fills clear this tube first also if there are any holes in it it still over fills the washer, the valve works on air presher,,as the washer fills the air presher builds up in the tube and shuts this valve off stoping the flow of water into the washer,,,ok? sorry but me spelling is roten?
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.
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 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.
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.
