Set dial and water overflows, doesn't stop sending water in tub, No spin cycle


The water level sensor is faulty and so it does not switch even with water level coming to the set level. Unless the water level switch is triggered the water inflow will not stop because the inlet valve will not cut off.Remove the water level sensor and check if the diaphragm is working , if not it must be replaced.

I bought a top load washing machine model number WF T7239 UL on 05Nov2010. Water sensor does not seem to work. Water just keeps filling up the drum and starts overflowing once filled.


Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.



If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Washer machine over flow at start up


Hi There
I have this for to read and hope this gets you in the right direction. Let me know how it goes.
Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.
Thank you for writing to fix ya.

Water continues to run and over flow as cycle won't start


Hi!

There are two main reasons due to which the water is overflowing out of washing machine---

1. Water Inlet Valve: A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

My Whirlpool LSQ8543J has started overflowing after rinse cycle


Replace the water valve where your hoses connect to the washer.

Washer continues to fill until it overflows


I had same problem today. It was just a tube disconnected from the water level sensor. Raise the top of the washer and look on the left side of the tub. There should be a plastic tube running from the water level sensor to the control panel. Make sure it is connected. If not simple reconnect the tube and you should be good to go.
