Hi,
This is most likely a damaged pipe going to the low pressure sensor. This sensor determines when to turn water off by the pressure built up in a tube. If there is a damaged pipe - it wil overflow.

Turn off and disconnect machine, then remove access pannel to inspect all small bore pipes for damage. Check pressure valve for correct operation.

If it leaks at times other than filling, and water level seems ok, then it could be a damaged top or bottom seal that needs identifying and replacing.
If it leaks constantly it could equally be a damaged rubber pipe between drum and pump.
You really need to remove an access pannel - and just observe operation without putting your fingers in thereto spot it.

SOURCE: ge washer overflows on all cycles.

You can use ammonia or vinegar to dissolve soap scum. Granted, I don't like the idea of using ammonia since ammonia+bleach (residues of which may be in the washer tub)= toxic gases. You may consider this if you can work on the part outside of the washer (and outside the house) or you can possibly ventilate the area well. Personally I'd just try the vinegar first. Can you disconnect the tube from the water level pressure sensor in the control panel? If so, find a syringe, turkey baster, or whatever else you can find to fill with vinegar and slowly pressurize the tube from the top side. You will likely meet significant resistance at first, and then it should release as it breaks through the scum. I would not recommend using an air compressor or other non-manual airpump, as the plastic tubing and airdome are not rated for high pressure. Once it is clear, flush with lots of water and then air to make sure the acidic vapors do not make their way up to the pressure switch.

Also, don't forget to check the tubing for small cuts, breaks or holes..particularly where the tubing travels through a hole in the metal casing. Any hole, no matter how small, will cause the pressure to never get to the pressure switch, and your washer will never know when it is "full".


Hope this helps!

Hotpoint WD440 Drawer overflowing


Hi.
I would check the inlet hose from the bottom of the soap dispenser where it goes into the drum for a soap blockage.
undesolved powder can build up here and prevent the water entering the drum
You can access this hose by removing top cover.
the hose is on the left side front.
This should solve your problem.
Please leave feed back.
Thanks.

Water keeps running will not shut off causes and overflow


If it only overflows while the washer is running, check the pressure switch, or water level switch. The hose may have come loose, or could have a hole in it somewhere. Otherwise the switch may be stuck or may need to be replaced.

If it's overflowing when the washer is off (i.e. in the middle of the night when there is no laundry in it), then check the water valve.
