Washing machine water will not shut off when filling the machine

    That sounds like what it's supposed to do. Do you mean it still fills when it starts agitating or spinning? Does it overflow? Are there other leaks?

If your unit keeps filling with the power off, it is the water fill solenoid(s). If the machine overflows it is the float switch. Check out partselect.com and put in your model number. It will show a picture of the part and the price.

If you need more help, post another comment.

Thanks,

Tim

My Kenmore washer will not shut off the hot water at the end of the fill cycle


Water valves work on a hydraulic principle, the surface area of the valve where the water comes to the valve is more than the opening that it passes into the machine.. The pressure of the water shuts off the valve. The electric solenoid opens the valve when power is applied to fill the machine.
'
If you unplug the washing machine while it is filling and it keeps filling you have a bad water valve.

If you unplug the machine while filling and it stops filling you have a electrical problem or a bad pressure switch.

Washing machine won't quit filling with water and starts washing while still filling. Have to shut water supply off in between cycles so it can do its wash, rinse, spin. Otherwise as I stated, it will keep...


Check the water level switch. It's a diaphragm like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level it activates the switch to shut off the water. Check the plastic tube for any obstructions or damage. The switch can be tested using an ohmmeter or multimeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Fisher and Paykel washing machine fills and won't stop filling...


If the water stops when you shut if off at the wall you have a bad cold inlet valve, or the valve is getting a constant "open" command from the controller and thus the controller is faulty.
