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.

    Sounds like the same problem, only it has now happened twice in a month and the machine is 10 years old. I'm just starting to research solutions as we try to dry out the flood.

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.

Kenmore washing machine 2 year old is now flooding my floor every 20 loads happiend 4 times. Please help.


Is the water flooding coming from the top of the washing machine?
Check the drain pipe in the back to see that it's not loose. Also, look inside the drain pipe and make sure there is no algae. Algae might cause low flow through the drain pipe and it will overflow.

Hope this helps.

LG front load washer leaves clothes soapy. Yes cleaned trap and drum and use correct HE detergent. What else can it be?


front load machines can be soo frustrating-try using less detergent-you might try running a sanitizing cycle with a quarter cup of dry dish washer soap-sounds like your rinse cycle isn't working do you have an option for a 2nd rinse cycle-cheers Denny

Water fills when machine is off


I would think perhaps you need to call a repair man to have inlet valves replaced .

I was an idiot and put dishsoap in the dishwasher because I ran out of regular dishwasher soap. Now the dishwasher keeps overflowing with bubbles. I keep wiping all the bubbles and extra water out but...


you must rinse all the soap out the best way is to make the drain hose lower than the tub of the washer and run the garden hose into the drum and slowly rotate the drum as you rinse it out after a complete rinse you should run a rinse and spin cycle a few times and you should be fine.

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 overflowing...as 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.
