I'm not an expert on washing machines but I've worked on a few Whirlpools before. I believe the sensor that measures the water depth is a pressure sensor. If that went bad it may explain your problem. Depending on the washer you have that sensor is usually located on the outside of the circular stationary tub in either the back left for back right corners of the machine. You will have to pop the top off the machine to get to this sensor. Usually the top of the machine just clips into the front and hinges in the back. Pop the front clips with a screw driver and lift the top off the machine. You should be able to see the circular stationary tub surrounded by the square metal case. Look for a sensor attached to the outside of the tub. It should have at least 2 wires going to it. The wires will probably just unplug and you will have to figure out how to replace the sensor body. It may attach to the tub body with screws or there may be a clip.

Water keeps running after machine is full of water. it won't start the cycle no matter what load size you choose.


The water level sensor is either bad, or the air line going from the tub to the sensor has become disconnected or clogged, so that the machine never senses it is at the correct water level to start the cycle. Therefore it continues to fill. You will need to acsess this sensor by unplugging the washer and removing screws at back of control panel. Then lift the panel, remove clips to housing, and disconnect lid switch, then inspect the clear rubber air tube, if there is no noticable issuse, replace the sensor.

My whilpool calypso continues to fill machine with water until it overflows.


What is happening is that the fill sensor is apparently not working. The washer will continue filling until it overflows the washer!
Replace the pressure switch. This will solve your problem and cost is about $35.00

Before replacing the switch check the hose which comes to the switch also

It is possible that hose has a hole in it or has come undone. If there is no pressure in the hose, then it wont actuate the switch, and thus fill forever.

If your air tube is in good shape, it could be the switch itself, it may be adjustable.

Hello, Have a Kenmore series 70 (capcity plus).


Note after reading a bunch of information. I went home and removed the hose from the Level Switch and "clean it", if you will and re-attached. Started a load, and bingo bango bongo, it work. Thanks for the insight.

On the normal cycle of my Duet front load washer at 37 minutes the machine stops and flashes F5. I push the reset button then the start button and the machine works fine after that.


HI. This is a Water temperature sensor error.

If during the water heating step in the wash cycle, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range, or the heating element circuit has failed, the F05 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• Check the Water Temperature Sensor, Heating Element and Element Relay
• Check connections to the Sensor, Heating Element and Relay

Replace failed component.(Most common issue will be a failed water temp sensor)

Fisher Paykel will not drain


I had the same problem. After cut the power off for at least 60 seconds and then back on, as the manual suggests, the problem remained. Therefore I started putting the clothes out and bailing the water out. Once the water was down about half way the pump started working. I suspect the sensor was "stuck". I cycled the washer without clothes and it worked fine. Still working after several loads of laundry. The water level sensor will probably need replacing sometime soon.

How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer


I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.
