Check level switch and tubing. make sure working and not damaged or defective.. The washer cannot tell how much water is in tub if level switch not reading correctly. The inlet valve only lets the water in the washer cannot regulate the level.

IE code was displayed once. washer will not stop filling or spinning, clock freezes one minute past start up for wash cycle and while washer fills fast and in less than 5 minutes the washer does not stop...


The fault you have is a faulty inlet valve or possibly an electronic controller fault, you need to check with a multi meter if the inlet solenoid is always getting power or if there is constant power, (take care as this is mains power, if in doubt pay a professional to test) if the power stops but the water keeps flowing this is a relatively easy fix with a replacement inlet solenoid, if they fail the water pressure can hold them open and the machine will keep filling.
If there is always power to the solenoid then you have a faulty electronic control board.

I have a Samsung top load washer #WA5451ANW. Will only fill with water. Had to turn the power off so machine would stop filling with water.


Possible that the cut off to the Inlet valve has failed which means that the controller unit is a suspect. Also if the inlet valve is staying ON even when the power is cut off , then it is a case of inlet valve failure.

Washer ran all over the floor after filling up and didnt stop filling


Well, there are two main possibilities: Inlet valves and pressure sensor system. to test the inlet valves, turn off the machine, do they stop? Dirt can keep them open.
If power off stops the water, I suspect the pressure system. There is a component outside at the bottom of the drum that measures the water volume, using pressure. This collector component sometimes gets clogged with detergent. If it is open, test the transducer at the other end of the plastic hose. The system is designed to stop the power to the inlet valves when the pressure builds.

Tub fills up when washer off


If the washer fills while switched off at the wall, then the water inlet valve is faulty. Inlet valves are made to only work when power is supplied, and to shut off when the power is stopped. Detect which temperature by using the tap(s) and replace the inlet valve....Good luck....Nomess

At the end of cycle washer will not stop filling and overflows. maytag neptune fav6800aww


There is a diaphram switch located in the machine at the bottom right in the rear. When you remove the front panel it will be all the way back on the right. It senses the water level. It has three levels it detects. I had a problem with mine filling too much. That should take care of your problem.

When I start the washer it continues to fill up and wont stop


Hello,Sounds like a problem with either the inlet valve or the pressure switch, way to determine which one is... while it is filling pull the plug..if water keeps filling it's the inlet valve..if it stops filling it's the pressure switch..The inlet valve is normally located in the back of the machine where the hoses hook up. The pressure switch can normally be found inside the control panel with a small rubber tube attached to it. You should replace the faulty part. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again..good luck!! Mike

My maytag washer does not stop filling with water no matter what size load I change it to.


The mixer valve (water valve) solenoid has failed in the open position.

Change out the valve to repair.

Kenmore series 80 washing machine overfills, it will not start washing, it just fills and runs over


Hi, The first part to check is the inlet valve. If you shut the washer off, will the water stop? If the water continues when the power is off to the washer, change the inlet/mixer valve.
If the water stops filling when the power to thee washer is shut off, the water level switch needs checked.
Please let em know if either of these help so I can assist you further.

Fills with water when not in use.


Hi, If the washer fills up when off, you will need to change the inlet mixer valve. Do you have to shut the water source valve off to keep it from filling up?
Please let me know so I can assist you further.

Thanks

Washer won't stop filling


if you can turn the washer off while it is still filling. and the water continues to enter the machine you have a bad inlet valve.
Do me a favor turn the washer to fill, with the washer still running unplug from the wall. If the water is still entering the unit you have a bad inlet valve
