Often, what may seem to be major problems, can be something very minor in nature. It sounds like you have two issues with your washer.

First, the overflowing problem:

The water level is controlled by the pressure switch which is located behind the load level selector knob on the control panel. Before assuming you have a defective pressure switch, read the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r762094-washer_overflows

In many cases the small air hose comes loose from the pressure switch and causes the symptoms you are experiencing. Check the air hose to ensure it is still attached to the pressure switch and check the electrical connections to ensure they are not corroded. If these preliminary measures do not work, replace the pressure switch. If the pressure switch requires replacement, you can search for the best price at these web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

The second problem is the agitator:

If the upper portion of the agitator (called the "Auger") is not spinning as it should, you may need to simply replace the agitator dogs. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

The part number is included in the link I provided. The agitator dogs can be purchased at appliancepartspros.com for about $5.

If you have any questions, pease post back with your model number (located around the washer tub opening under the lid) so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope this helps you.

Sir/mam
plese check the water level controling sensors if they r covered by salt like powder should be cleaned and reset the level controling unit and check the operation and if there is any supply voltage fluctuations the the unit will go wrong then it should be rectified by an authorised technician.

The water keeps filling and doesn't stop until I turned the washing machine off. I changed cycles and it keeps filling with water. It just flooded the garage.


there is a water level pressure control and hose and either one could be bad.  the hose can become clogged  or the pressure switch could have gone bad.

Fws445rf1 washer didnt stop filling and flooded my apt and it doesnt aggitate when it is washing,the whole thing just spins inside instead of moving back and forth,what are the most likely reasons for...


if it's a top-loader, then the water level sensor is probably failed! if an older machine- there's a plastic tube (which you can't see from the outside) that measures the column of water in the tub of your machine, and triggers the agitate and spin, and rinse cycles of your machine.
when it's in wash cycle the water level is lower, then it spins and drains and the rinse cycle pumps in more water (makes sense!), then drains & spins, then re-rinses at the same water level. your water level sensor is defective, probably. allowing it to over-fill.
it detects the water level as 'spin' and doesn't agitate!
my theory- no guaranty! if it's old get a new washer or a good used one! this is not a problem i've encountered, just a guess. good luck!

May be a bad water level switch.
Open the control panel, with a full tub of water bump the water level switch with your hand. If it starts to agitate, replace the water level switch.

Washer won't aggitate or spin.


your water pressure tube is clogged at the tub. Take the back of the control panel off and blow or a small balst of compressed air down this tube and try the washer again. Powder detergent clogs this tube at the bottom of the tub and does not tell your pressure switch to shut the water off at the proper level thus overflowing your tub.

Will not spin and then when I try to start the cycle over all it will do is aggitate. It is also overfilling and spilling onto the floor. It is a top loading GE washer and is just over a year old.


sounds like the water level switch is not working pop the front cover off and see if the tube on the left of the tub is still hooked up. to remove front cover use a putty knife and slide between thee top and the front cover you wil feel the knife stop about two inces from each side push in on the place where it stopped and pull out on the front cover

Washer won't stop filling with water


In yor machine control panel you have A part called a pressure switch or water level switch. that controls the water level and tells the timer to start aggitating .If the part is bad the machine will over fill and keep running the water!!

Flooding


La Trisha, There could be many reasons for the leak, however usually all leaks are visable. Your model is a direct drive pump and motor and I have seen a lot of these pumps go bad and leak. You will have to remove the front panel. There should be 2 clips, one on each side of the washer top. Push a putty knife in these clips and the front panel should pop out from the top. Now you will be looking right at the pump on the bottom. It is held on with 2 clips and 2 clamps, a real easy fix. When you remove the front panel, let the washer fill a little again and see if the water is pouring from the pump. You will also be able to get a look at all the other hose attachments. The part number for the pump is 3363394. Good luck..
