Question about Maytag LSE7806A Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Water overflow This is the 2nd time in five years the washer on rinse cycle has overflowed the drum and flooded our bathroom, where it is located, and kitchen and front room. The first time it was a fill valve that stuck open, It was replaced and worked until yesterday, flooding the house again. Will never be able to trust machine again. My wife doesn,t run machine unless we are home just for that reason, but outside doing yard work. The machine would continue running water into drum in the off position, and door open only way to stop water was shut off supply.

Re: water overflow

Are you on a well? Often people with a lot of sediment in water get sick of the screens in water valve plugging up so they remove them. NEVER remove these screens. If any sediment gets into valve it can hold it open causing flooding. If you unplug unit and water still comes in you must replace valve.

Rinse Light Flashing and Cycle stops. What could it be ?

If your washer doesn't go through the washer rinse cycle, the most likely cause is the water valve. What happens is the water valve will stop letting cold water into the washer; therefore, once the washer gets to rinse it will either stop or not do anything during the whole rinse cycle.
This is because when you selected your water temperature, you may have selected warm/cold or hot/cold. The hot water came in and you didn't notice any problems. When it got to rinse, the cold water the cold water won't come in. Therefore, the washer does nothing.
The item to check would be your water inlet valve. Check it for continuity with a multi meter it should show Ohms or a closed circuit. To test it when water is overflowing unplug the unit and see if it still overflows or continues to fill. If it stops when unplugged. Then it is not a water inlet problem but an electrical signal problem going to ur water inlet valve. Possibly from the panel or board. You can also do a live volt test to see if it is getting the full 120 current, but be sure to unplug unit before testing as this is a live test.
Another test u can do to check the water inlet valve, first cut the water off and remove the hoses off the back of the washer. Then one at a time point the hoses inside the washer tub and turn the water back on. If you don't have good water pressure, turn the water back off and remove the strainer that should be in one end of the hose. Inspect the strainer to see if it is stopped up, clean it and reinstall it. Now repeat this test. If you have good water pressure now, reinstall hose and your problem is fixed.
If you still don't have good water pressure, the problem is in your house plumbing and you need to call a plumber. If you had good water pressure the first time you performed the test, the water valve is bad and needs replacing.
If your washer doesn't go through the washer rinse cycle the timer may be the problem. Sometimes the timer gets stuck in the middle of the cycle or won't turn at all. If the washer runs, but the timer doesn't turn, the timer is bad and needs replacing.
Do you have anti-flood hoses leading to the machine. If you do there is probably a loose tube in the back causing a small leak. When the hoses detect that water is still flowing after a certain amount of time due to the leak it shuts down and causes the machine to turn off during the rinse/spin cycle
By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

Frigidarie Stackable Washer and Dryer leak

Check the Drain Tube, Check the Screen. When it gets to the FIRST Spin Cycle, Check the Water Level inside the Drum and see if it is Completely Draining... There is a Water Level Switch that should not be allowing it to Overflow so you may have an issue there... But first check for a Blockage

Washer will only go threw certain cycles

i have a kitchenaid washer that does the same thing! it has flooded my entire house on more than one occasion & i mean really flooded! i absolutely hate mine. it gets stuck right before the rinse cycle & then won't drain the water from the wash cycle & starts refilling to rinse & never stops. it just overflows continuously. i personally think that it's a sensor or something. i had a repair man come out when it was still under warranty & they claimed there was nothing wrong w/it. i putting it on the curb this weekend & getting a new one. i don't think that i have ever hated an appliance as much as this one!!!

Washer Dryer flooding at spin cycle

Nicola...not sure what you mean by floods. If you mean that water is coming out of the top of the machine basket as a result of either overflow or splashing, each is different from water coming out of the drain hose.

Generally, washers which are spinning are also completing a rinse cycle...the program adds a bit of water to the spinning load to drive out the last of the detergent.

If you've got a problem in spin with flooding out of the top (basket full), this is probably a timer issue (or...less likely...a sticking water valve). If the problem is splashing, you should keep the cover closed for safety. If the drain hose is overflowing, the problem is lack of capacity to take the pumpout. Clean the drain.

Another flood. GE washer

The water sound is normal. There is a solution in the top of inner tub for balance. Is it in not stopping the fill cycle? If so check to make sure small hose is still attached to outer tu at bottom left front. This dome that it connects to can become filled with scum and causes the unit to not know that it's full. This causes flooding. You can try removing hose and cleaning out with thin wire. Sometime only fix is to replace outer tub. Again, this is only if overflowing!!
Another possibility is a bad break allowing outer tub to spin in agitation. This throws water up over sides of tub. Monitor unit when agitating to see if outer tub picks up speed and starts to spin. It is normal for it to index.
