The water level is controlled by a pressure switch. Either something is blocking the sensor hose or the switch is defective.

    The only way is to verify the hose connected to it is clear and I use a syringe to apply small pressure and read the switch continuity. Price will depend on where you purchase and if you do the repair or pay a technician. If you provide a model number I can check the current prices.

Washer leaks a little water when I put in a full load in it. Also leaks bleach when poured into dispenser. This is a top loader


Do you now where the leak is coming from? You may have to remove the outside sheet metal to observe the motor and tub. More than likely, the leak may be caused by a faulty pump or a seal in the pump.

If the machine overfills, you can get water on the floor as well, but you would notice that the machine appears too full.

The leaky bleach dispenser probably just needs to be removed, inspected and thoroughly cleaned. Water gets pumped thru it and any clog or problem with the pathway the water follows can cause overflow or a leak. BUT deal with the water problem first, that's the most important. A leaky pump will only get worse.

Also check the hose connections on the back of the washer. Old and cracked rubber washers can allow water to leak.

How do I clean the trap filter inside my Electrolux Front loader


Good Morning Deanna - Sounds like you are speaking about the Coin Trap. Below are some basic troubleshooting steps you may wish to follow to clean the trap:
· Unplug the unit.
· Remove the bottom front access panel. There are two screws one on right and one on the left towards the bottom of the front panel.
· Now that the panel is removed look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap.
· Clean the drum out with as much water as possible that you can remove and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out of the bottom of the drum and onto the floor.
· At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum.
· Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out.
· Put the unit back together following the same steps backwards.
Hope this information proves to be helpful!

Good Afternoon Brenda - Generally speaking, washer machines do not have a filter. Depending on your particular model the unit may have a coin trap. Below are some basic troubleshooting steps you may wish to follow to locate and clean the coin trap:
  • Unplug the unit.
  • Remove the bottom front access panel. There are two screws one on right and one on the left towards the bottom of the front panel.
  • Now that the panel is removed look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap.
  • Clean the drum out with as much water as possible that you can remove and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out of the bottom of the drum and onto the floor.
  • At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum.

My maytag washer model lav3600aww continues to overfill and overflows


Hi There
I have found some stuff for you to read and hope this helps you. Let me know how it goes.
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.
thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

Washing Machine Keeps Filling with Water through Detergent dispen


This machine has a water valve that works on vaccuum from the tub. You will see a small clear hose that runs from the side of the tub up to this valve. This valve is adjustable to change the water level in the tub to desired setting on some machines, but if it goes bad, it will not shut off, thus overflowing the tub. Find this valve and replace it if adjustment does not work.
