We have a wega w500 dishwasher which is overfilling with water. how does a person solve this?


Hi, it sounds like a sensor switch that tells the inlet water valve no more water its full enough, is not working. Best to have it looked at.

Kenmore water keep running will not wash


On many washing machines, there is a water level setting switch. This allow you to adjust the level in the machine to converse water. This switch works on air pressure. There is a small hose inside the outer drum at the bottom of the washer. It is connected to the pressure switch (level setting switch). As the washer fills, the weight of the water compresses the air in the hose until the pressure switch activates. There are two possible failure scenarios; they are both fairly easy to repair. First, the hose could be blocked at the drum entry point by lint or debris. This is a somewhat common occurrence. To check this, unplug the washer. Remove the rear cover from the control panel to access the rear of the switches. Find the rubber hose attached to the level switch and remove it. Blow through the hose to clear it. Reattach the hose and retest the machine. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace the water level switch, It is easily remove and replaced once you have accessed the rear of the unit. You can calls Sears service with the model and serial number of the machine and get replacement parts sent directly to your home.

Washer stopped working with error code f21


Generally F21 implies it takes to long to drain water. If you washer is not draining, it will not likely need a pressure switch but just a cleaning of the drain pump filter.

See images below (click image for zoom). If it is draining all the water nad F21 appears, then it likely has a pressure switch failure. The water level pressure switch part #8540224 is located under the main top. It is mounted along the right upper side panel as your standing in front of the washer.

In order to access and replace the water level pressure switch, remove the screws along the back of the main top and slide it back a little and lift it off. You will see the pressure switch (key#23) as shown in the image I added below.

NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the top.

Once you locate the pressure switch, remove the pressure switch hose and wires. I added an image below with the instructions on how to access and remove the pressure switch. Note: There is additional information about the F21 fault code and some other information not pertaining to your fault code in the image below.

Hope this helps (remember to rating this free answer and leave one testimonial).

F35 error displayed


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.

Hope helps.

Washer will fill but it does not stop


Your water level switch is stuck.
Probably due to soap scum in the air dome line.
Remove the control console screws to access the water level switch.
Remove the small plastic hose from the water level switch and blow through it to dislodge the blockage.
If it is difficult to blow through,remove the front panel and take the hose off at the air dome on the side of the tub.
Push a small wire into the air dome to clear the clog.
Replace the hose on both ends.
Set the timer for SPIN and run a spin cycle.
Then retry the water level fill.
If it does not fill correctly,replace the water level switch.

When i turn my waher on it starts agitating without any water in it


You can a defective water level switch or a clogged air line going to the switch.
Open the control panel to access the water level switch. Remove the hose from the water level switch and blow through it. Blow very hard until it is clear. Replace the hose on the switch. Set the machine to spin and turn it on. Let it spin for 1 minute. Turn it off then back to fill. If it does not work OK then, replace the water level switch.

Just replaced the water level switch on my maytag per your instructions but the water level on the machine is still off. what else could it be?


Try these:
  1. Set the water volume selector switch properly.
  2. Check if there is a fuse at the lid switch bracket in the control panel. Replace it if blown.
  3. Check if there is a faint buzzing sound or humming noise coming from the water inlet valve. It is the device on the washer that the fill hoses are attached to.
  4. If you can't hear anything, the water inlet valve is not getting any power.
  5. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you need to replace the water inlet valve.
