Prewash flashing and machine Overfilling

My machine keeps filling up with water so much that the pressure pushes it out of the door and the drawer and the Prewash light flashes all the time.  I've checked the pipes at the back are not blocked, the water supply pipes are fine, its just filling up too much and then leaking out.  My dad has also checked the pump and thats clear too.


Anyone know why this is happening?

Re: Prewash flashing and machine Overfilling

Their is a small bowl connected by a see trough plastic pipe leading up to the preshour switch, that you will have to clean out the bowl and disconect the pipe from the presure switch and blow trough this to clean out any droplets of water. Replace then try the machine again, it may fill up again, dont dispair, empty the machine and re-blow trough the hose again with it disconected from the preshure switch. To empty the machine of water place the outlet hose into a bucket 3 or 4 times.

If your PreWash is flashing then you have a pressure problem. You can dry using a washer machine cleaner or doing a hot cycle with white vinegar. If that doesn't help the electronic would have to be changed.

My machine gushes water out when it spins Sometimesfrom the loading drawer and sometimes from the front door.

Hi, if the washer is overfilling this could happen. This would involve a pressure switch. Also, the boot inside the door could be torn at the bottom. Does it leak in the wash cycle. Inspect the boot by opening the door, pull the rubber back and use a flashlight to inspect it.

We buy a use front load wacher we dont have the manuel it is a 24 inch front load we dont know if we use the same detergent ad softner and were we put it please sent me or phone me 72 581 0294 or e mail...

Any detergent that says "Automatic" should be OK.

Pretty much any softener should be OK.

You will usually find a drawer on the front panel of the machine, just under the top edge, typically on the left hand side.

If you open this drawer, you will find it is divided into a number of (typically four) compartments. There will be one or two large compartments for detergent and one or two smaller, usually partially covered, compartments for bleach and conditioner.

You need to identify which is which.

Starting with detergent: If you only have one large compartment, that's the one to use.

If there are two, you need to know which is for main wash and which is for prewash. If one is bigger than the other, use the big one for your main detergent load. If using a cycle that does a prewash, put detergent in the smaller compartment as well.

If they're both the same, you need to experiment: Select a wash cycle that doesn't do prewash. Turn the machine on, and when it starts to fill, cautiously open the drawer a little and look to see which compartment has the fill water running through it. That's the one you need to use for your main wash detergent (use the other as well on cycles that do a prewash).

Now look at the smaller compartments. Hopefully, they'll be marked with a triangle for the bleach and something looking like a flower for the conditioner. If not, put a little bit of conditioner into the bottom of each, set the machine to "final rinse" and see which compartment it takes the conditioner from. That's the one you use for conditioner in future. (Don't worry about the little bit of conditioner you've put in the bleach tray - this will rinse out the first time you run a full cycle).

When putting in bleach or conditioner, it's important not to overfill. If there's a fill level line, don't go above that. If the compartment is covered with a grating then fill no further than the grating. Overfilling will cause the product to go into the machine too early in the cycle.

(Finally, strongly advise against posting your phone number or personal email address on public internet sites - it attracts all sorts of undesirable attention)

Good luck - and enjoy your new machine.

Prewash always flashing

yes i had a similar problem the prewash light kept coming on mid wash cycle and eventually stopped taking in the water just bypassing it straight to outlet without filling machine. i found if you remove the pump at the rear of machine and disconnect hoses there was a build of lets say deposits leading to a sensor through a opaque plastic connector to the top of machine . after cleaning the hoses thoroughly and removing all the crud machine worked as it should do, hope this helps
