Hi: Where the hot and cold water lines attach to the back of the washer is usually the solenoid (the water valve.) As a matter of fact it sticks through the back wall (usually) and the water lines attach to it. Replacing that should solve the problem. I don't have the model number so input it at www.searspartsdirect.com and it will give you a parts list and a schematic. I hope this helps, Jeff.

How do I fix washing machine to finish emptying during rinse and spin cycle?


Long shot, but does it fill the same as when new? I would check the atmospheric switch which is a hollow tube that runs down the inside of the drum(not in the wash cage) when the water fills, It pushes air up to stop the fill. It may have gotten clogged. Or partially clogged.

MY MAYTAG FRONT LOAD AT TIME WILL FILL WHEN WASHER IS NOT ON OR WILL DRAIN AND SPIN ON IT'S OWN


It may be the water inlet valve is not shutting off the flow 100%. If water keeps trickling in, even dripping, it will eventually fill the drum. Some models have a water level sensor that will run unit thru a drain cycle to prevent an overflow situation. Try checking the unit every 6 or 8 hours to see if there is a slow build up of water accumulation. Replace inlet valve if there is.

Maytag ensignia makes a great deal of noise during rinse cycle


"If you dont have a noisy spin cycle and the noise you hear is only on the rince cycle, dont be worried, as this is totally normal. Water sprays onto the drum while the spin cycle is in progress and rewets the clothes to allow any existing soap to be desolved. This noise is in effect the water hitting the drum during the rince part of the cycle.

Washing machine refills after spin cycle


Can you hear the pump running if not the machine may be syphoning out, if the outlet is into the down pipe too far this can cause it to syphon. The outlet should only be into it by about 6". The machine will fill with more water on the rince than the wash cycle that will cause the problem. If you can hear the pump running the machine mite be over filling there may a blockage in the presure system if you take the lid off (making sure the powers turned off) you will find a round switch with a thin hose comming off it tace the hose and you should find a small bottle this may be blocked. Hope this helps you.

Washer Dryer - drum is filled with water even when switched off and door can still open!


Try the valves inside the back where the water hoses connect to the machine they should default to the closed position when water is not required

Water in my washing machine


it sounds like you have a leaking water valve, you will have to replace the mixing valve, For now turn the water off at the wall suppling water to the machine. When you want to use the washer turn on water, when its done with the cycle turn the water off.

Note: unplugging the machine will not stop the water from running

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

Kenmore Elite HE3


I don't know if this will help or not, but my machine has gone through (2) fill valve assemblies so far. In one case, it wouldn't fully shut-off and was also erratic. I replaced it (very easy to do) and that fixed the problem. I think my machine is an HE2, but I'd guess it's probably the same parts... (Parts available through the Sears web site. The last one I bought was around $55 for the assembly.)
