Water not shutting off to begin wash cycle flooded room

I have a 7 cycle moffat washer 3 yrs old and for some reason last night I put the load in went on with other work and then noticed I didnt hear it washing. I went into the laundry room to check it and found that the room was flooded along with my living room and basement as my laundry room is on the 2nd floor. The water filled up and continued to run and not begin to wash. I decided to check it again tonight and found that all 3 levels for the water will not shut off. I had to manually turn the dial to start it washing so it would drain the tub. Has anyone had this problem with their washer? Please let me know what the problem was if you did.

Probably one of the water cut off solenoids not shutting off.
Do you use both hot AND cold water?
Try using only cold water first. If that works, maybe hot water solenoid is faulty.
Next, connect cold water to the HOT inlet, and try it again. This means you have now tried each of the solenoids, and maybe identified which one is faulty (assuming thats the problem!). If water wont cut off after trying this, the problem will be with whatever level sensing device it has, but I am not familiar with the model you have, so cant help there. Good luck.

My kenmore elite top load washer just flooded my laundry room. Apparently when the cycle went to rinse it continued to fill and not drain the old water out. What is wrong?


could be a bad pump, or clogged pump or when it went to rinse and the inlet valve opened it stuck open or never got the signal to stop meaning control board

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.

Water won't cut off


if you have to shut the water off at the source you need a new water inlet valve. If not then you need to replace the pressure switch.

10 yr old Kenmore 70 series top load washer


Sounds like either the water level sensor (called a pressure switch ) is malfunctioning or there is a mechanical problem with the switch meaning that the tube that goes from the switch is
a) Kinked or crushed
b) has a small hole
c) Has become clogged
d) Air dome (where tube goes to on outer tub) is clogged
