Rusty,

If it’s FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW then I have a soft copy of the schematic for machine PDF format , just need an e-mail adr., a hard copy should be in the Machine Console. Here is a link to the Service Manual for reference and Sears Parts Direct for reference if it’s a FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW, sorry but so many post in the FAV6800AW forum are for different machine types. Please see this post to troubleshoot the pressure switch. Look for my comment starting around May 15, 2009. We are troubleshooting an “ND” alarm in this post but I discuss the process for monitoring the control board input for pressure switch transitions. You can go to page 16 of the SM to monitor pressure switch level transitions that signal the control board when water level fill point is reached. Quick question, does the water shut off with no power to the machine? Rich

My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Washer doesn't stop filling with water


If this only happens when the machine is turned on,the tube from the tub to the water level switch is pinched or broken. If the clear plastic tube is not pinched or broken,the water level switch in the control console is bad. If the machine lets water through when it is in the OFF position,the water valve where the hoses connect are bad.

Ken more wot stop filling but think i got it want to make sure


A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Finding the pressure switch and the pressure sensor tube


Water level switch is in the control area right behind the water level knob. There should be a tube conected to it. Follow the tub to the bottom of the tub. If this tube is not connected it will just keep filling. If you find the tube disconnected you will need to reconect the tube and drain the water and try refilling. If this tube is conected the take the tube off of the water presure switch and blow air through it to make sure it is not cloged and reconect, drain water and retest. if this still does not solve your problem your presure switch is probably bad and you will need to change it. every time you test you must drain the water so the tube will get air presure. If the tube has a crack or hose it will need to be replaced.

Does not stop filling with water


A machine that overfills or underfills can often have a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to shut off the water. Make sure there is no damage to or obstruction in the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad switch. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

WASHER WILL NOT STOP FILLING


Here are a couple of things you can check to hopefully get to the bottom of your problem....

First of all, try unplugging the washer. Is the water still entering the washer? If so, you should replace the water valve, as it appears it may be stuck open. It's the plastic piece where the water lines are attached to the washer.

If this is not the case, then there may be a problem with your water level control. It's a fairly simple apparatus usually located inside the panel. You'll be able to identify it by a small hose (about 1/4 inch or so in diameter) connecting it to the basin. Check and make sure the hose is attached and isn't broken or pinched. If so, the washer isn't aware the water level has risen to it's pre-set level and like the Little Engine That Could, it will keep filling. :(

If the hose is attached, another little trick to use is to disconnect the hose from the basin, turn the washer on, and while the water is filling the machine, blow gently into the hose to try and trip the switch. If nothing changes and the water doesn't stop filling, the problem may lie in the water level switch itself.

I hope this helps! :) Let me know if I can be of further assistance!

Will not stop filling with water and does not agitate


If you can unplug the washer and the washer keeps filling with water, then the control valve assembly is shot and needs to be replaced (not hard, just takes a bit of time).

If you unplug the washer and water stop filling, then there is a problem with the timer switch and / or water level sensor. Timer switch is not big deal to replace either (easier than valve assembly, but costs more). Level sensor hard to replace since located near the top of the basket inside the washer.

If washer doesn't fill with water until you start a cycle, and then won't stop filling, then it is level sensor, or possible timer issue.

You can probably get replacement parts from local appliance shop, as well as some pointers on how to change the parts based on above testing.

Washer keeps filling up with hot water


Hi

If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Maytag MAV5000 washer, water filling does not stop, small tube in back is hooked up.


Remove the small tube from the water level switch and blow through it to clear any clog in the air dome on the side of the tub.
Remove the small tube from the air dome and blow through it into the water level switch to reset it.
Then set the machine for spin and run spin cycle for 1 minute. Then try your fill again. If it does not work this time, replace the water level switch.

Water will not stop filling the washer


I just fixed this problem on my GE washer that overflowed earlier into my hallway and living room. The fix required removing the tube from its connection at the outer tub and cleaning out some residue that was preventing air from moving to the sensor at the top of the machine at the control panel. No tools were needed other than a large steak knife to undo the clips to remove the front panel of the machine and a small flat head screw driver that I used to clean out the plastic pressure hose.

The good news is that even if this had not worked and the sensor/switch needed to be replaced, the part is available for replacement at the local hardware superstore and a few online outlets for around thirty dollars. Replacement of the switch looks to be relatively simple by disconnecting the existing wiring housing and replacing with a new part.

There are several detailed diagrams available online by doing a search for your product/ model number.

Be sure to check the hose before replacing the pressure sensor/switch- this will save time and money.

Good luck!

My washing machine doesnt stop filling the tub when the right water level is reached, it will just continue filling and never stops filling. Can anyone suggest what is wrong and how to fix this?


Not familiar with this model. When a washing machine fills with water up to a predetermined level, it usually operates a pressure switch which will turn off the water valve, and redirect the power to the programmer, or heater, or some other stage of the programme. If there is a blockage of powder or gunge in the tube leading to the pressure switch this would prevent air from rising up the tube to operate the switch. Tom.
