Re: Water will not shut off

I had to replace the water valve. A friend in the appliance repair business gave me a hands on training to do the repair myself. I came home and had it replaced in less than 15 mins. As for the reset switch, it is still unknown.

It may be the water inlet valve is not shutting off the flow 100%. If water keeps trickling in, even dripping, it will eventually fill the drum. Some models have a water level sensor that will run unit thru a drain cycle to prevent an overflow situation. Try checking the unit every 6 or 8 hours to see if there is a slow build up of water accumulation. Replace inlet valve if there is.

My GE 15 cycle heavy duty plus washer the water keep running in the rinse cycle

Hum the water inlet valve may be going out or defective, have u noticed any water in tub at bottom when machine is not in use or after a day or so? check it with multimeter. Another suspect could be a bad timer sticking on rinse cycle, or a bad water pressure switch, which is suppose to shut water off at certain water level then start the agitation? In other words when in rinse and water is draining, the pressure switch continues to read low and opens to keep the water flowing to replace water that is lost? Need a multimeter test on all of them

If your Top Load Washer is Over Flowing Check the Following it is possible that the Water Inlet Valve is faulty.
First check to see if water is entering the machine when it is shut off if it is,replace water inlet valve. If no water enters the machine when it is shut off the water inlet valve is not the problem.

Pressure Switch
The pressure switch controls the level of water in your washing machine. This does this by a small chamber on the side of the tub, this chamber fills with water wich in turns creates pressure in the chamber. There is a hose connected to this chamber that runs up to the switch. When the right amount of pressure is applied to the switch it stops the water flow. If the hose becomes clogged up, gets punctured or cracks and leaks the hose will need to be cleaned or replaced. If the hose looks good and has no holes check the pressure switch by checking it for continuity when blowing on the end of the hose. This will close the switch and simulate pressure. If you have no continuity when the switch is closed replace the pressure switch, this video will walk you thru replacing and testing.

The water won't automatically stop flowing through

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 need replacing.

Water keeps flowing does not stop---does not go thru cycles

You probably pinched the water fill hose that comes up from under the tub when you closed the cabinet. Also make sure it is free from trash in the bottom of the tub and that it is tightly connected to the water level switch.

Maytag washer PAV2300 water over flow

from what I am reading on-line, it is the mix valve, aka water valve. Unplug the washer, then see if it still fills. If so, it's most likely stuck open, and needs to be replaced. about $22.00

Water won't stop running

It might have a small stone or something similar in the water soleniod valve or it might just be sticking open somewhat. I'd go ahead and change the cold water soleniod valve because it's not closing itself and shutting off the water flow.
