Did the washer overfill or do did it leak the water out from somewhere? Typically, if the washer is overfilling it is caused by a faulty water level switch. This 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 it reaches a certain point, it activates the switch to turn off the water and signals the timer to agitate. Look for any obstructions in the tube and the switch can be tested for continuity with a multimeter. No continuity means the switch is defective. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Water not shutting off to begin wash cycle flooded room


Probably one of the water cut off solenoids not shutting off.
Do you use both hot AND cold water?
Try using only cold water first. If that works, maybe hot water solenoid is faulty.
Next, connect cold water to the HOT inlet, and try it again. This means you have now tried each of the solenoids, and maybe identified which one is faulty (assuming thats the problem!). If water wont cut off after trying this, the problem will be with whatever level sensing device it has, but I am not familiar with the model you have, so cant help there. Good luck.

Admiral Top Load Washer Model LNC6762B71 overflowed


Remove the control console cover. Find the water level switch.
It has a small tube attached to it.
Remove the tube and blow air through it. It is probably stopped up. Reattach it to the water level switch.
Look over the length of the tube and may sure it is not pinched.
Set the washer to spin and run spin for about 1 minute.
Then run water on a lower level and see if it shuts off.
If not replace the water level switch.
