Leaking water from washing

The next thing you should check is the discharge hose where it dumps into your house wastewater system. If you can not be in the immediate area for a wash cycle then wrap a paper bag around the dump location. Hold the bag in place loosley with string or rubber band.If the paper is wet when you return you have found the problem.
Do NOT seal the dump hose to the wastewater pipe.This can cause the problem of filling the machine because there will be a vacuum that will siphon the water out.

LG MW3677HW Water Inlet Issue

I am not clear on how you connected that machine to the water heater. IT sounds to me like the machine does not know that it has water in it. IT would not normally open and dump the water if it did.

Kenmore water keep running will not wash

On many washing machines, there is a water level setting switch. This allow you to adjust the level in the machine to converse water. This switch works on air pressure. There is a small hose inside the outer drum at the bottom of the washer. It is connected to the pressure switch (level setting switch). As the washer fills, the weight of the water compresses the air in the hose until the pressure switch activates. There are two possible failure scenarios; they are both fairly easy to repair. First, the hose could be blocked at the drum entry point by lint or debris. This is a somewhat common occurrence. To check this, unplug the washer. Remove the rear cover from the control panel to access the rear of the switches. Find the rubber hose attached to the level switch and remove it. Blow through the hose to clear it. Reattach the hose and retest the machine. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace the water level switch, It is easily remove and replaced once you have accessed the rear of the unit. You can calls Sears service with the model and serial number of the machine and get replacement parts sent directly to your home.

My washing machine would stop and beep and not advance to the next wash cycle and it was taking forever to fill up. I did the diagnostics and found it to be #49 which is a faulty hot or cold water valve. ...

Sorry for the very much delayed response due to site changes which modified the notification system.

Anyway, you should try holding first the WASH TEMP DOWN button then the POWER button until there's a beep. If it doesn't work, use WASH TEMP UP instead.

Make sure the Restart feature is turned on and the Recycle feature is turned off if all else fails. During the diagnostic mode use the WATER LEVEL DOWN button to turn RESTART on by pressing the said button until the LOW WATER LEVEL LED turns on. Use the WATER LEVEL UP button to turn RECYCLE off. The MEDIUM WATER LEVEL LED off indicates RECYCLE OFF. To set these modes in EEPROM the Advance button must be held while selecting Restart or Recycle. Power off the machine thereafter to complete the reset.

I have a Roper washing machine (Model: RTW4440XQ0, Serial #: C11740048) that is less than a year old. When you start the machine on any cycle (on high water level) it will fill up with water and run...

The machine was built to adhere to the low water guidelines of your overly intrusive government. Bought a new machine with the same problem. 1/2 tub of wash water and 3"-5" of rinse water. 3 different local service shops and the Whirlpool people said neither was adjustable. I found this unacceptable and decided I was going to make it work the way I wanted not the way the government schlocks said I must. Took out the 2 screws on either end of the control panel ( where all the controls are) lifted it up and found 2 ADJUSTABLE water level control switches. One 3-way for the wash water and one for rinse water. Cranked them both in and now I have a full tub of wash water and the same for rinse, Vote in 2012 to keep the government out of our homes and our lives,

You have a problem with your water level switch
When your switch is not working, the washing cycle will not trigger to operate.

Ken more wot stop filling but think i got it want to make sure

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.

Kenmore 80 series will agitate but not spin or let water out.

Hi, I know washer had a party, he just need a dancing partner, joking, that's a common problem, when machine is not properly level, you should used spirit level, to level machine, after leveling machine, place both hands on machine, and try to rock it from left to right, forward and backward, and it should not have any play, if there's play adjust legs to compensate, water has to be pumped out first before machine spins, rhere's something wrong with water pump, maybe some fabric stuck in pump impeller, or maybe wires disconnected from water pump, remove back of machine and check connection to water pump, check for kink hoses, visual check, if wire were remove, connect to water pump, you're smart. good luck.
