Often, what may seem to be major problems, can be something very minor in nature. 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, however, 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:

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

My washing machine keeps filling with water


If the washer keeps filling up without overflowing onto the floor , then you have the drain hose too deep into the drain and it is siphoning, pull the drain hose back up from being so deep and have it only about 10 inches into the drain, tie it into place with a shoestring or wire tie.
Now if your problem is that the washer is overflowing onto the floor, then there is a clear rubber hose that has been disconnected from the washer, this is the diaphragm hose. Have a technician reattach it. It shuts the water off and starts the machine when its gets enough water, but it wont if the hose is disconnected. Mr Burk

My washer want stop filling up and when I should the machine off the water runs in the floor


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FWS833A, will not stop filling. I see that you shut the machine off and the water runs onto the floor. I suggest shutting the water off at the inlet. From there I would contact your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why the water will not stop filling your washer. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

KENMORE DISHWASHER, WATER CONTINUES TO FILL AFTER WASHER IS SHUT OFF.


You're correct you have a faulty water inlet valve. At the end of the wash cycle the solenoid in the valve is not closing properly to not allow water to re-enter the tub. For further assistance with this repai

Thin Twin has a slow water drip when not running


If it drips while the washer is off then you will need to replace the "water inlet valve". Here is the part you need. Here is the service manual to show you how to access the valve and replace it.

My Sears series 80 washer fills till it is overflowing and doesnt shut off water flow, it was overflowing onto floor this morning, it is full to the rim now, and wont drain or do anything when it is turned...


The usual arrangement is there are 2 electrical water inlet valves, one for Hot and 1 for Cold. These valves are turned on by the timer, and remain on until the water level switch turns them on, and allows the washer to then run. It sounds like this water level switch is bad. This switch should be in the panel above the top of the washer, and has a rubber/plastic tube that goes toward the washer drum. It is also possible that the rubber tube is off or blocked. (if the water inlet valve is stuck open, turning the washer off will NOT stop the water).

Good Luck,
Bill

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I would suspect the water inlet control valve may be malfunctioning- not closing (its default no power position).
Quick temporary fix, although tiresome, turn whichever tap, hot or cold, off when washing finished. You've probably already thought of that!
In the meantime I would suggest a service call is required ;-0(

Water running out


Is it from the water valve assembly or coming from under the machine? if it's from under the machine you may have a bad fill hose or a bad tub gasket, But I need some more info to help you.
