SOURCE: indesit w93 washing machine fills with water but doesn't start washing

Hi there. I have an old model, the indesit WM12. Never counted the flashing light (yours was 10) but my dial started clicking constantly at the drain part. I called Idesit and they told me it was a blockage in the filter.
The filter they speak of it located, on mine, at the front of the machine at the very bottom on the right. It is a black dial about 3 - 4 inches in diameter. Unscrew that anti-clockwise (a real pain because so much water comes out. My wife and I unscrewed it, filled a baking tray with water, screwed it back up, emptied / substituted tray then same all over again - until empty. Though putting it on drain again and again helped at same time). When I pulled out the filter found a 'colour catcher' sheet in it. We used them first time ever the other day. Removed that, gave filter a wee clean and, hey presto, all is working again. Hope that helps. Jim

SOURCE: Washing machine wont stop filling up

check hose to water level switch, if it has had an out of balance situation it can loosen or detach hose. replace hose firmly back on switch or replace hose if that doesn't work.

My Samsung 7.5kg top load washing machine is over filling..is there a sensor or something to correct this


yes
it is connected to the bottom of the tub by a small hose
it sits up top and as the tub fills , air pressure acts against a preset spring tension and switches the water solenoids off at the same time it starts the wash
the problem is probably the water inlet solenoid / valve that is not working or the diaphragm is split
to test , change over the cold and hot water hoses at the taps and press the hot water button
if the flow stops at the required setting it is the cold water valve unit

Why does my Kenmore washing machine keep filling...casuing overflow


The water level is usually controlled by a diaphragm pressure switch which is connected to the tub by a plastic tube. This tube may be blocked or the pressure switch may be faulty. Blowing into the diaphragm unit should allow you to hear the switch clicking. The unit should be accessible by removing the normal inspection/access panel on the machine. This diagram should give you some idea of what to look for. If this checks out the fault would probably be in the control unit of the machine itself. 1a961adb-a7eb-4742-ae24-69a5b1e61931.jpg

Runs without water


Water level is sensed by pressure against a diaphragm switch. This switch is always mounted above water level, and is connected to the bottom of the outer bowl by a plastic tube, usually 3mm ID. Either the tube has become blocked or the connection point. Also the diaphragm switch could be faulty.

Washing machine won't quit filling with water and starts washing while still filling. Have to shut water supply off in between cycles so it can do its wash, rinse, spin. Otherwise as I stated, it will keep...


Check the water level switch. It's a diaphragm like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level it activates the switch to shut off the water. Check the plastic tube for any obstructions or damage. The switch can be tested using an ohmmeter or multimeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Washing machine fills in the water but does not start the wash cycle


The fact that it does not fill completely can be related to a problem with the water-level switch, that regulates the water level.

See from Repairclinic:
"This switch is 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. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch."

However, when it is only the switch the mashine usually completes the cycle, but with less water than normal.

A possibilty is that either the timer is faulty or there is a problem with the water supply.

Check that water is coming from water supply with regular pressure, and that hoses back there are not obstructed.

More likely you will have to replace the timer.

See again from Repairclinic:
"When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water."

  • You can find parts at the following websites, you need to input your model number. If the part is not listed contact them.

    It's look like a water level switch issue. The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you should find it easily. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or to replace the switch. Good luck !
