The pressure activated switch is turned on to control a shutoff valve when the pressure in the clear tube reaches a certain level. If the tube is blocked, it will not get the light pressure on the air trapped by the column of water. Boyle s law P1V1=P2V2,
so replace (or clean out) tube with the same ID tube or the volume inside will not be correct for the rising column of water to activate the pressure switch.

SOURCE: no water level control

Often, what may seem to be major problems, can be something very minor in nature. It sounds like you have two issues with your washer.

First, the overflowing problem:

The water level is controlled by the pressure switch which is located behind the load level selector knob on the control panel. Before assuming you have a defective pressure switch, read the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r762094-washer_overflows

In many cases the small air hose comes loose from the pressure switch and causes the symptoms you are experiencing. Check the air hose to ensure it is still attached to the pressure switch and check the electrical connections to ensure they are not corroded. If these preliminary measures do not work, replace the pressure switch. If the pressure switch requires replacement, you can search for the best price at these web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

The second problem is the agitator:

If the upper portion of the agitator (called the "Auger") is not spinning as it should, you may need to simply replace the agitator dogs. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

The part number is included in the link I provided. The agitator dogs can be purchased at appliancepartspros.com for about $5.

If you have any questions, pease post back with your model number (located around the washer tub opening under the lid) so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Simpson Electronic water not stopping

Pressure switch - it measures the weight of the water (in bars) and tells the valve to close.

Check/replace it.

Honda gc 190 starts then floods and stops. Wont start again till plug is taken out and dried then repeats same thing


Float level or a sticking needle valve, check float level as if it is adjusted incorrectly it can cause the main jet to allow fuel to flood through, the needle valve can do the same.

12. (00001100) Phase 1 to 6 - Flood Protection Error
The Motor Controller module has found the water level to be above the flood level
and tried to pump the excess water out. (Under extremely high flow rate conditions
the machine may overfill during the "top-up" routine in agitate.) After pumping for
30 seconds, it has been unable to lower the water level below the flood level. Either
the water valves have stuck on and are letting water in at a flow rate that is higher
than the pump can handle, or the pump is blocked and can't remove the excess
water.
Primary Source: Water Valves.
Action:
If the water valves are on continuously, check that the water valves turn off
mechanically (remove power from machine).
Secondary Source: .Pump system
Action:
Check pump for blockage and drain hose for correct height and kinking
Tertiary Source: Motor Controller module. (Display Module Phase 1)
Action:
If water valves are being driven on electrically, replace Motor Controller
module. (Display Module Phase 1)

Water overflow, timer not working aftre few seconds


The most likely cause is that the fill level sensor is faulty or the tube feeding it has blocked. When you say the timer is stopping, do you mean that it stops the washing program, if so that is normal as the anti flood sensor says STOP because there is a chance of flooding as the water is too high.If you fix the water level it should continue the program after you have drained all excess water.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Water does not stop filling with water


The possibility is faulty water inlet valve.The valve lets the water to enter the machine.But if this valve is got weak/faulty then it will not stop the water from entering.If the water fill vale is checked ok then other possibility is faulty water fill valve switch.The switch detects the required water in the washing machine and shuts the fill valve off,but if the switch is faulty then it will not shut the water fill valve off and this will not stop the water from filling and this overfills the water.So most cases the water fill valve is faulty and it has to be replaced.But if the fill valve is checked ok then other possibility is faulty water fill valve switch. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. To get required parts ,you can get it from www.repairclinic.com . Keep updated if any more queries.Thanks.

check the electronic inlet valve I dont know the code but the symptm sound like a faulty leaking inlet valve

as a temp remedy you shoud have a inline isolator check valve this is where the water fill pipes connect to turn them off this will stop the machine from flooding untill you are able to seek repair

The belt broke, it was replaced, but afterwards its overflows,


If water is overflowing check the small plastic line going from the bottom of the tank to the water level switch. It could be disconected. To check the water vales, set machine to fill, while the water is running into the tub unplug the power cord from the wall, the water should stop, if not the water valve is faulty.

My Maytag Washer keeps running water and won't stop.


regardless of machine being on or not???sounds like a faulty water inlet valve youll need to replace the valve..

If the water level just overfills and floods over the top of washer but turns off when the unit is shut off, then it sounds like a bad fill switch.
