Error code 13. Turned water on to machine and it leaked


E13 Condition Water leak in the tub or air leak in pressure-switch air hose Check/Repair The washer fills for too long without the water level pressure switch tripping to indicate that the washer is full. Check for a leak in the wash tub. If the tub is not leaking, check to see if the washer is overfilling. If it is, check the air hose and water-level pressure switch for problems.

Water level does not recognize level....does not stop filling


I had the same problem, its the water-fill hose sensor located at the back of the tub. Sometimes it pops off if the tub goes out of balance, (poor design, no clamp on it) so if you can get in there see if the hose is properly fitted over the connector to the tub, happened twice to me, an easy fix, go by a clamp to keep it on.

Water keeps filling up tub


hELLO THERE:
It's overfilling If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve Water-level switch 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.

After repairing a hole in tub and putting unit back together, this morning the tub overflowed eventhou we had a small load in to test. It appears that the repair part worked but maybe the electronic part...


it sounds like the water level pressure switch is either gone bad or the wires were placed on the wrong terminals of the pressure switch if its wired each terminal separately and not a modular plug,this unit uses air pressure through water level to sense water level you select in the tub,also make sure the plastic water tube from the tub to the switch is not kinked or it cant sense water level either

Water runs but doesn't fill tub and wont spin if put on spin cycl


The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is 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. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

When it doesnt spin or drain...

The drain line is probably clogged. Maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. In this case it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump.Remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. In case it clean there, check the outer tub port- open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then,try to remove the clothing through the port.

I try to start a load of laundary and it fills and keeps filling until the water is above the glass on the door. it then stops and flashes F20. i then have to shut it off and unplug it for a minute, then...


"F20" is called a No Water Detect error code. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1491905-f20_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

This error code can be a tricky one to diagnose as there are several causes. In your case, however, you obviously don't have a water problem, or a drain problem. I think the problem is your pressure switch. The pressure switch is what shuts off the water source at the appropriate level. If it malfunctions, the washer will continue to fill to the point of overfilling. You should never have water above the glass as you described.

You can access the pressure switch by removing the top panel of the washer. The top panel comes off by removing the three screws holding it in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off. The pressure switch will be located in the rear on the right hand side (as viewed from the front) along the interior cabinet wall. It is round, has some electrical connections and should also have a small plastic air hose attached to it.

Before assuming the pressure switch to be defective, trace the air hose to the bottom of the wash tub and ensure it is still connected. This hose is how the pressure switch detects the water level through pressure change in the tub as the water fills. If the air hose is disconnected or clogged, you can experience the same symptoms. You will need to remove the lower kick panel directly below the door inorder to see the bottom of the wash tub. Remove the panel by locating the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. The pressure switch air hose will attach to the lower right hand side of the wash tub.

If the air hose is attached at the wash tub, carefully disconnect it from the pressure switch and blow air through it. You should hear air bubbling through the residual water in the wash tub if it is not clogged. If it is clogged, carefully remove it and clean.

After verifying the air hose, you will need to refer to the troubleshooting index of your tech sheet for tips on how to properly troubleshoot and/or adjust the pressure switch. The tech sheet is located inside the washer behind the lower kick panel, or affixed to the inside of one of the interior cabinet walls. I do not have the pin numbers or measurements memorized. If the switch proves bad, replace it. If the switch is good, it may be the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main computer of the washer that controls all functions.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
