Water will not stop running into washer


one of 2 things can do this,first unplug the unit from the power if it continues to fill then its the water fill valve thats bad,second if it stops filling when unplugged from the power outlet then its probably a plugged pressure switch line from the tub so the water pressure cannot switch the pressure switch diaphram from fill to wash cycle,open the cover and remove the pressure hose from the tub and blow into it and you will hear a click in the pressure switch its connected to,then replace hose onto tub side and blow into the other end of this same hose and make sure theres air movement in the tub as you will see and hear bubbling noise

My washer will not stop filling with water and overflows


Turn the washer on and let the water run, while the water is running unplug the power cord if the water stops the inlet valve is ok but if still running the valve is bad and need to be replace if the pump is good you need to test the water level switch, if faulty need to replace.
good luck

Washer will fill up but after that nothing happens?


The lid switch is my first thing to check. There are two wires going to this switch, jump these together and this will tell you if it is working. The clicking noise won't tell you for sure.

Next, you need a volt meter to see if power is getting to the motor, if so, you have a bad motor.

HI CHECK THESE....
Step 1: Make sure the washer is receiving power. Check the cord, the plug, and the outlet. If a wall switch controls the outlet, make sure the switch is working. Look for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers at the main entrance panel. If the unit is receiving power and still won't run, press the reset button on the control panel (if the washer has one).

Step 3: Make sure that both water faucets are turned on and that the drain and soap-saver return hoses are properly extended, without kinks. If the washer has a water-saver button, make sure the button is depressed; water may not circulate through the filter nozzle if the basket is not full and the button is not depressed.
Step 4: To make sure the water is the proper temperature, check the temperature selector switches on the control panel to make sure they're properly set. Also check the water heater temperature control. It should be set no lower than 120 degrees F.

THANKS

This could be from a few things. First test. Turn on the washer to fill it up about 3/4 the way. Now turn it back off. Does the water stop? No? You probably have a bad water valve. Replace it. Yes? Listen for the sounds of running water or look for water on the floor. Do you see/ hear this? Yes? Your pressure hose has probably come off, reattach it. If it does turn off and there is not further sounds or leaking water, you probably need to replace your pressure switch.

WASHER STOPS AFTER A FEW MINUETS INTO THE WASH CYCLE


you didn't say if the machine had filled up with water and stopped after that, if that is so then the place to check first is the heater element for open circuit, this will be located at the bottom end of the drum area, remove plug before testing, work safe, hope i have helped a little, if the machine has not finished filling check the water supply first then the water solenoids. hope i have helped, if so rate me please
