The fill valve is stuck. it is a fairly cheap part and easy to replace. you can try to take it apart and see if you can find a pebble or sand in it causing it to stick, but that doesnt always work. note: the fill valve is in the back where your water lines screw on.

I have a LG top loading washer. Cold water will not shut off, making it so washer will not shut off. Water still runs after we unplugged the washer.


Close the cold water valve behind the washer, then try a reset. If that doesnt work, the timer may need to be replaced. Depending on your skill level, you could do it yourself.

To reset the washing machine:
  1. Press POWER to turn the washer off.
  2. Unplug the washer from the power outlet. ...
  3. With the power disabled to the washer, press and hold the START/PAUSE button for 5 seconds.
  4. Plug the washer back in, or turn the circuit breaker back on.

KENMORE DISHWASHER, WATER CONTINUES TO FILL AFTER WASHER IS SHUT OFF.


You're correct you have a faulty water inlet valve. At the end of the wash cycle the solenoid in the valve is not closing properly to not allow water to re-enter the tub. For further assistance with this repai

Water does not turn off during spin cycle


Hi Robert!
If a washer unit is not advancing correctly to the next setting or cycle you could have a few issues. The main control board is not communicating correctly to the rest of the unit; the fill sensor and water valve sensor(s) are not operating properly; or the unit is not sensing enough water has been added to the unit. I would strongly suggest to contact a service professional to test all areas of the unit before repairing any further.

Miele Touchtronic W1213 Front Load Washer: The washer keeps adding and then draining water continuously. One time, the cycle ended and the machine continued to add water and drain endlessly....until I...


hi - If I remember correctly this particular series had a time related sequence built into the programme, whats happening is the timer has picked up the false readings when the pressure activates the switch.

Suggestions to look into - leave power off & turn water back on - does water run into the machine (faulty valve); turn power on initiate a cycle water runs, then turn power off - is water still running? (faulty valve)

From experiences on the field, theres a slim chance that the pressure tube has a hole in it from the vibrations over time. This effect will not create enough pressure in the tube to activate the pressure switch, the only other problem would be the pressure switch itself.

Washer temp setting changes by itself


I also have a Whirlpool washer/dryer for my condo, although I don't know the model number of mine. I had the same problem -- after it was precisely a year old, suddenly one day the hot and cold started coming out reversed. I was able to fix mine by more or less temporarily fiddling with the water pressure. What I did was one time, when the rinse cycle was running and the washer was filling up with hot water (grrrr...), I completely shut off the valve supplying hot water. So at that point the water stopped filling into the washer, and then I started tinkering with the cold water, twisting the valve off and on a few times. Then BINGO, suddenly the cold water "kicked in" and for the remainder of the rinse cycle, it filled the washer with cold water. I then turned the hot water valve back on, and since then it has been running correctly.

When running a cycle the water doesnt shut off causing it to over flow, but the pump is working


Problem with water level switch or the clear tubing running from the bottom of the outer tub into the control panel.
Also if the water won't shut off even when you turn the washer off - problem is in the water valve stuck open.

Washer was working fine! Moved washer to new house, and now it will run but only with hot water. put washer on Auto controll, and cold cold or warm cold setting, and it wont even turn on.


Have you tried checking your cold water supply faucet? Are you sure there is cold water running out of that faucet before you hooked up the hose? Is it possible there is a shut off on the supply valve that isn't turned on? Therefore it will not run on cold water setting? This actually happened to me once. We went away for a week and turned the water off for the hot and cold supplys. Came back to do laundry and only turned the hot one on and not the cold. Good luck!

Water will not shut off.


1st: check to see if the hose that the water comes out when it drains is higher than the water level in the washer.

2nd: It could be the plastic line that is inside of the washer that determines the water level.

Check the hose at the back to see if it's higher first.

Let me know
