Make sure that there is water available by turning the wall faucets all the way on. if the wall faucets are on and the water inlet hoses are clear and the screens are not clogged, this will confirm water inlet valve assembly failure. you will need to replace this device in this case.

You can test the valve assembly for voltage, if the voltage is not sufficient, replace the control and, if the voltage is 120 vac, replace the water valve assembly.

Water keeps filling up the drum and inlet light flashes


either the inlet water valve is bad and needs to be replaced or the controller for it is not cutting off the electricty to it, If you are going to replace something, replace the water inlet solenoid valve.

My bush washer keep s filling up with water in the drum when the washer isn't in use


Seems that your inlet valves are leaking when the unit is off. Replace inlet valve and that should stop the issue.

Washing machine will not stop filling up with water


Is the machine siphoning off water as it fills? If it is check the height of the drain hose and make sure it is above the height of the normal level of water that would be in te drum when washing, if the hose is to low the drum will siphon off the water on its own and continue to fill. If the machine is not siphoning off water while filling then you may have a blocked pressure hose or the pressure hose bottle may be blocked not allowing the pressure switch to activate. there may even be a small hole in the pressure switch hose. Check the thin pressure hose that goes from the bottom of the drum to the pressure switch.

Normally the machine used to start after taking required amount of water. Now the machine starts only after the whole drum is completely filled with water making it difficult to turn. Even later when it...


Washing machines stop filling when water pressure from the bottom of the tub goes up a plastic tube and into the water level switch. If the tube is obstructed with debris or anything foreign, the switch will fail to stop the water from overfilling. It is possible that the switch is defective, of course. Check the tube for obstructions, kinks, or a loose connection.

If it is the switch, have your make and model handy and look up the part here:

Washing Machine Rinse and Spin lights are on


its the problem of drum getting blocked by any clothes getting tucked up.also try to move the drum manually with the machine off.if it makes any noise its the faulty motor.or drum has lost its alignment.it needs to be reseated properly in that case. -------------- The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine.
No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.

Kenmore top load washer will not fill on rinse cycle


Hi, It does sound like the contacts in the water level switch are sticking. This switch is activated by presure not vaccum. You can try and bow into the hose leading to the level switch and see if it has any restriction but, it is more likely the level switch is going bad.
Do you have any problem on the initial starting of you wash cycle?
Let me know if this helps at all or I can answer any more questions.

Thanks
Vic
