This is most likely caused by a faulty water level switch. The water level switch is a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level rises, pressure increases on the air in the tube and when the pressure reaches a certain level, it signals the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to start the agitate cycle. Make sure there are no obstructions in the tube. If the switch is defective, it will have to be replaced. Hope this helped and best wishes.

I had this problem and found the tube had come away from the tub. Poor clamp is correct (above)! Put the tube back on the nipple, attached a new, better clamp - good to go!

Switch.Check the tube connected to the water level switch
and the tub. If the tube has a hole or **** then the pressure will not
activate the switch. The tube came of my tub (poor clamp) and water continues to flow..

The problem is simple and easy to fix. Your washer has a tubing which runs from the base of the tub to the water pressure switch. It might have vibrated loose from the switch, or their can be some sediment in the tub. Blow out the tubing and reattach it securely to the switch and pump out the water in the tub. Then try it again. I wrote an article about this:

MY WASHER FILLED UP WITH WATER, BUT THEN IT JUST QUIT WORKING.


I believe it is your lid switch. I have replaced 3 this week. If you get me the model number i can tell you for sure. Another thing that caused this is the motor to go bad. Do you smell a burning smell when it is trying to run after the fill up? If not get me the model number and i will get you the part number for the lid switch.

hi there,

the humming is the motor trying to turn, which means it works. since you did not mention any error messages, it could just be a belt that slipped off the pulley. have you taken it apart yet?

it definitely worth fixing.

Washer won't stop filling with water


In yor machine control panel you have A part called a pressure switch or water level switch. that controls the water level and tells the timer to start aggitating .If the part is bad the machine will over fill and keep running the water!!
