Question about Washing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
It is highly likely that your water inlet solenoid valve has failed. This is an electrically operated valve that shuts off the water fill when the level is correct. There is one each on hot and cold, and if it fails open, the machine will overflow.
The other possibility is that the water level sensor is blocked or faulty. This is a tube from the bottom of the bowl up to a diaphragm sensor which sends a signal to the inlet valves.

If this is a front loader see that u use only washing powder for FRONT LOADING MACHINES. Also possible your detergent drawer is clogged with old dry detergent. Pull out the drawer and clean with tooth brush. Things shd be fine.

We had the same problem, It was a pair of sock stuck behind the seal in the drum blocking the water inlet to the drum. Like others we managed to get our fingers between the metal of the drum and the rubber seal near the detergent dispensor to remove the sock.

It sounds like the washer is not draining properly.
Remove lower rear cover of washer, locate and remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of tub.
remove plastic filter inside hose, and clean same.
Refit filter and hose, making sure it is on properly.
Be careful when you remove the hose, as there will be water in there.
As an extra precaution, remove soap draw,and thoroughly clean all parts, particularly,the conditioner parts
Please rate my fixya solution.

This machine has a water valve that works on vaccuum from the tub. You will see a small clear hose that runs from the side of the tub up to this valve. This valve is adjustable to change the water level in the tub to desired setting on some machines, but if it goes bad, it will not shut off, thus overflowing the tub. Find this valve and replace it if adjustment does not work.
