Hi, Can you get the water to stop by turning the washer off? If the water continues to fill when the power is off, you eill need to checnge the inlet valve. If the water does stop filling when the power is off to the waser, the water level switch needs to be tested.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Mine is leaking badly. It is not overfilled. any ideas why?

It most likely it the valve on the supply tank not properly stopping the flow of water into the basin resulting in it overflowing. Mine is doing the same thing and I am trying to find replacement parts.

Why is water overflowing my resivor on my pathy

If I understand correctly, your coolant (water) is overflowing out of your resevoir? Either you have too much coolant, and it doesn't have any place to go, or it is boiling over. Remeber even water expands when hot.

Dishwasher is overflowing between the door and bottom cover. when I open the door, bottom of dishwasher is full of water. I have no manual, so I don't know how to disassemble it to get to hoses, pump,...

There is a float in the bottom of the tub. When it is floated up by the water it cuts off the flow of water to prevent overfill. See if the float is stuck. If not take it out to see if the water stops. The switch may be bad.

Keeps spilling over during brewing

These tanks can't actually be overfilled since all water poured in displaces the exact same amount of water coming out the spout. So, whatever amount of water you pour in, will be the same amount of water that flows to your pot minus the amount absorbed by the coffee grounds and filter.

Your problems sounds like an undersized (Non Bunn) filter, or clogged brew basket. To verify this, try pouring in only half the water for your brew cycle and wait for it to finish dripping, then pour in the rest. If no overflow has occurred, you simply have the wrong type of filter. If overflow begins again, you have a clogged brew basket, since no Bunn can flow too fast for the brew basket to keep up with it.

This is because Bunn filters are manufactured differently than generic store bought paper filters. They will flow faster, brew cleaner and stand up better than normal generic filters.
Remember, Bunn makes their OWN filters for good reason.
They made the first, best paper filters for drip coffee pots, and all others are just generic dioxin gas producing paper.

Filter basket overflows after cleaning Bunn VPR Coffee Maker

Some people also try adding fresh grounds to brewed grounds, resulting in an overflow. A restricter valve can be used, but a better solution is to simply pour in half the water at a time. This is what people who buy non Bunn filters do to stop overfills.

GE Washer WHDRR418E1WW overflows the tube. Yikes.

A washer that over flows in the fill cycle sounds like a faulty pressure switch. Part # WH12X10069 and 10 on this diagram. If it overfills the tub when the washer is off it's a faulty water valve. Best of luck Ryan

Overfills with water

Possible but unlikely. If you unplug the machine does the water flow? If not, the problem is the water level switch. Generally, this is a diaphragm switch connected via a tube to the bottom of the tub. It usually is about 2 or three inches in diameter, has a water tube and a few wires connected. Go on a site with a blowup diagram and locate the switch. Disconnect the wires...after noting where they go and with the power off. Insulate them. Does this stop the water flow? Buy the switch.
