Washing machine overflowing

Water fill up tub and run's over on any level and will not stop. will not wash. it will only fill the tank and spin. my Whirlpool AWZ412 fills with water ok but would overflow if not moved on manually. It agitates,drains spins all fine, any ideas. It has done this before and I thought the 8mm pressure hose was replaced. The pressure switch seems free with movement. Thanks, Andy

The water level selector of my whirlpool white magic-splash washing machine is causing problem..it does not stop the water at the desired level..the water keeps on flowing into the tub and then overflows...


PRESSURE SWITCH
Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to "make the switch" stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.

Water inlet valve

If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

The belt broke, it was replaced, but afterwards its overflows,


If water is overflowing check the small plastic line going from the bottom of the tank to the water level switch. It could be disconected. To check the water vales, set machine to fill, while the water is running into the tub unplug the power cord from the wall, the water should stop, if not the water valve is faulty.

Water doesn't stop filling tub and tub overflows

Washer will not stop filling and overflows.


A possibility is the pressure switch that senses water level is bad or the tube that connects it to the outer tub is split or loose and leaking air. If this is a timed-fill rather than a level-sensed fill, the timer may be in trouble. The washer top needs to be raised up to look for the level switch.
Remove the agitator and watch the plastic hub at the top of the shaft to see if it moves when the washer is set to wash. If it does, remove the plastic hub and see if it is cracked or the interior splines have been torn--if so, replace the hub.

Kenmore 80 Series Overflow


We've now had this happen three times and the exact same thing caused it all three times.

If the water level selector knob hasn't "clicked" into one of the given load levels on the control panel(i.e. the knob is in between levels) it will continue to fill until you discover water everywhere and turn the knob until it "clicks" into a level.

As far as I know, it has nothing to do with loose hoses or bad switches, it's bad design. There seems to be no safety mechanism to turn off the water if you over- or under-shoot the desired water level.

Ge wbsr washer overflows...


Could it be ...this happens only when it is overloaded or the load is out of balance. Please clarify.

If this is not the case .. the water level hose running from the outside tank to the water level switch is likely not making a good seal (otherwise the water level switch itself is bad). Sometimes with age the hose forms a crack in it near or at the end where it connects. This could happen at either end of the hose. Also if you have removed the control panel recently (for any reason) you may have (not knowingly) pulled the water level hose loose from the water level switch. Just slide the hose back onto the tube of the switch before putting the control panel back in place and all will be fine after the first filling of the tub (it may take one filling cycle to build the needed vacuum back up in the hose). Unless of course in the process you have broken the tube off the switch where the hose goes on. In this case replace the switch.

Washer overflowing from the tub


There's an air tube connected to the back of the water level switch, If that is kinked/pinched/crimped/disconnected or has a hole in it... the pressure switch will "think" there's no water in the tub and thus continue to fill it. Access your control panel and verify your air tube connection @ the level switch.
