Yet another problem with this washer. I read the solutions about overfilling when it is in use and how to replace the water level valve. My washer fills when it is OFF and unplugged. I got an "e 30" code after it overfilled and blew the door open.

Hello there : I am hoping that i am reading this right it looks like you said a fl error right and if so please read this whole solution that i have provided below
if any overfill condition occurs. This condition
when excessive water in the tub causes the
to trip. The control must realize that the trip
to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack
in order for FL to be displayed
With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a
every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is
drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until
switch resets or power is discontinued to the
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display. If this condition continues have the machines water level switch replaced or repaired Hope this is very helpful for you Best regards Michael
A machine that overfills or underfills can often have a faulty 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. Make sure there is no damage to or obstruction in the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad switch. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
If you have error code FL it means flood condition i.e. FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed. With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.
If its LF which means long fill i.e. when the water fill time exceeds ten minutes, the water valves are turned off and LF is flashed. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
If water is overflowing and you disconnect power to the machine. then:
A. It continues to fill: Replace water fill valve. (the part the fill hoses screw onto)
B. It stops filling: Most likely has a plugged tube from the tub to the water level switch.
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.
This is often, if not all the time, a faulty fill valve, the fill
valve has mechanically stuck open and is not fully shutting off when
not the washer is not in use. This normally will become worse and could
flood over the top of the washer = big mess .... replace the fill
valve. The fill valve is the part the hot and cold water hoses are attached to.
Either you have a faulty water valve, which would either need to be fixed or cleaned, or you have constant power to the valve caused by a problem in the controller which does not allow the cycle to advance. If, as you say, it does not overfill, then apparently your water level control pressure switch is operating and causing the pump to turn on and drain as fast as it fills.
Water valve is stuck open and needs to be replaced. The best way to check if the water valve is the problem is to remove the top cover, run the machine to get the water running. While the water is filling, remove the connector to the water valve that is filling. If the water continues to run without the connector, the valve needs to be replaced. If the water stops flowing when disconnected, you may have a control board problem and will need it to be replaced.
