What happens if you ask for a half load does it fill up to the top

If so you have wired the pressure switch up wrong and the machine thinks it is doing what it is told to do

I hope you wrote down the colors of the wires and which terminals they went on before you changed the unit ?

WASHER WAS OVER FILLING PUT NEW PRESSURE SWITCH ON STILL OVER FILLING MANUALLY PUMPED WATER OUT MACHINE STOPS AND BEEPS 6 TIMES THEN 1 WHAT DOES THAT CODE MEAN


Can not tell you what the beeps mean because you did not tell us what model washer you have. Sounds like a problem with the water inlet valve sticking open.

New whirlpool wtw5100VQ, will not fill hot/warm water,


Remove lid and just check connectors on rear of inlet vaulves are not earthing. Hope this helps. Also to check it is not a faulty solonoid remove wires from 1 terminal and tape them up, then put machine onto hot fill, if this does not blow trip switch then solinoid most likely at fault. Please ensure you disconnect power before touching wires. Good luck hope this helps

New install, used machine, need an old manual.


I'm too late for you but others could be helped. With the power off' make sure the timing cams are set to the beginning of cycle, Then push the cams with a finger untill the fill cam switch just activates. Then put the power on,close and latch door and water should enter the booster. You might have to do this 2 times to get water at correct level inside machine. When the cycle lite goes off check for water inside machine. If water level is too high, then take some water out with a cup.

2 problems 1st is the washer continues to fill with water when i put in a new load second is it wont spin


If the water keeps filling without cutting off, you either have a faulty inlet solenoide or your pressure hose and or pressure switch needs checking.

To isolate the acutal problem, start the machine on a new cycle. Change the water level to minimum or low before you start. Let the machine fill up. Keep checking the water intake as it fill up. Once the water level goes over the half way mark in your tank, if the machine starts its wash action then your pressure hose and switch are o.k. as they have signalled to the timer that the water level selected, has been reached.

However if the machine keeps filling up even though the wash action has started, then you have a faulty inlet solenoide/valve. Turn off water at the tap and get the valve replaced.

Washer Won't Fill, New fill Valve, makes humming noise


Check your water level switch it may be showing full. If it is it won't fill. If you can set it on spin and run for 2 or 3 min. it might clear the hose from the tub to the switch in case there is too much water in it. Or you could pull the hose off the switch and blow in it to be sure it is clear. Sometime if it gets too much in it it builds up too much pressure and shows full.

Maytag Washer Just Stopped After it Filled With Water (Timer?)


Cant rule out the timer but I suspect first check the lid switch. The timer and other components are fed from the lid switch on most models. Just put the2 wires together and reapply power if it works replace the lid switch. If not you'll have to have a wire diagram to know where to check next, but your water level switch "fill switch" could be at fault. it stops the water valve 1 way and can energize the rest of the circuits the other way. It may not be closing in the "full" direction. Again this switch if so wired will have 3 wires on it.

Water doesnt stop over fills the tub


Most washers have a pressure switch in the control panel that controls the water level. A plastic or rubber tube connects from the bottom of the tub to the pressure switch. The washer will fail to stop filling if the tube comes loose or develops a leak. The other possible problem is that the pressure switch is defective.
