My machine is a SANYO ASW F101AT when I start the machine the water over fills and shows an ER. there must be level switch some where, How do I fix it

there is a water level switch and it is controlled by a small tube from the tub to the switch
as the water rises in the tub , the pressure in the tube over comes a spring tension in the switch that you set by wash load level
when that setting is overcome the switch powers the solenoid for the water inlet and shuts it off at the same time starting the wash cycle
so you have 2 possible problems
i--- level switch
most likely a problem water control solenoid or diaphragm in the solenoid
the fix for the solenoid is a new one
check the tube to the switch or check the switch
do that bu setting low water level and listening for a solenoid operation for the water

How to fix f-05 error

Error F05 on some Hotpoint washing machines means the pressure switch has "jammed" on, so the machine thinks it's full of water and refuses to spin. It may indeed be full of water - but not necessarily.
This error code is used on some Indesit washing machines too
Before a washing machine spins the laundry it needs a signal that the water has pumped away successfully so it knows that it's safe to spin. This error indicates that for various possible reasons it's not getting that signal.
This can be caused by a pump fault or blockage in the filter, but if this is the case then clearly when the fault occurs it should be stuck full of water or at least still have a fair amount inside.

How do I maximize water levels in my whirlpool wfc7500vw washing machine? In other words, which cycle uses the most water, and/or how I can turn off the water sensor so that the machine uses extra water?

The water levels in you machine are set by a pressure activated diaphragm that is controlled by the knob with the levels settings around it or by the computer if you have a press button type.. Heavy or long wash cycles use the most water with light washes using the least. So to explain if you are washing blankets and you have a full 7.5 kg load to wash you would set the water level at high and heavy or full wash. You can disconnect the tube to the control unit but if you do that the bowl will keep filling over the top and the machine would not know when to start washing as the control unit reads enough water and moves the power to the motor while closing of the water solenoid. If you follow the instruction in the operators manual you will find that you save the most water at any wash requirement.

Water keep runing into the machine and exceed the required level setting. the machine will not start to washing is it that the water level in to high or does the water level setting control the washing...

put the washer on warm setting,start to fill washer,turn washer off,if it still keeps filling then you have a bad water inlet valve,if it turns off then check the water level hose from the head of the washer to the side of the outer tub,make sure both ends are on-mike

Washing machine does NOT stop filling w/ water!

If the m/c keeps filling, where is the water going ??? if the m/c doesnt reach the required water level it will not start, check the drain hose at the back, make sure its at least 24" above floor level, if it lower then it will just empty as quick as you fill it on gravity.

Kenmore 70 Series washing Machine won't stop filling with water

filling and never stops and never agitates? then check level switch and hose, any hole in the clear hose to the level sw can cause this. if airtight then replace level sw.

Ultimate II is refusing to go into agtation/wash cycle

It sounds like a bad timer unit, and possibly a lid switch.

As far as the water overfilling, that may be an unrelated problem, such as the water level switch... but most likely the timer.

I have the same model, and it wouldn't drain.. and it would try to spin when full of water... an interesting sight to see!
