Question about Washing Machines
Washer is overfilling even when the water level switch is in low load position.Please advise.
The pressure hose may have come off the water level switch. you need to acess the control panel, check the water level switch, there is a small pressure hose that slides on the small stem toward the lower rear of the wl switch. if the hose is disconnected, put it back on & it should work fine. if the hose did not come off, you either have a bad wl switch, or the pressure hose is plugged and needs cleared. hope this solves your problem. shane

Overfilling is caused when either the water inlet valve or
water level switch is bad. When any of these parts goes bad it won't shut off
the water and so cause overfilling. Hope this helps...please post back for

for using FixYa. Overfilling in your washer occurs mainly due to two things:
water inlet valve going bad and/or the water level switch. If the water inlet
valve has gone bad it won't be able to shut off even when the electricity has
been turned off. If the issue is with the water level switch then it won't tell
the water to shut off and the machine will overflow as this switch is to sense
the water level in the clothes tub. However, with that being said it seems that
you'll need to replace the water inlet valve. Please rate the solution if the
issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
