When you changed the water pump, did you notice a little plastic bulb with a flexible hose sticking out of the side of the washer tub. If so, you may have accidentally messed it up by changing the water pump. Examine the machine, you sound pretty capable so I think you can go from here if you find the thing I'm talking about.

    The bulb is an air pressure sensor that is attached to a pressure disc in the top panel. The hose transfers air to this pressure switch. It has an adjustment on it. So how it works is the more water in the tub the more pressure in the bulb, thus activating the pressure disc and shutting off the water valve. If the hose is accidentally removed completely, the water will overfill over the top.

    It is a screw in the back of the switch. Right in the center of the round part. It is factory set so if you adjust it, remember where it was when you started. Because you cant change water levels it may just need to be replaced also, its not an expensive part and easy to replace. 2 wires and a plastic hose. Good luck.

Washer will not spin or agitate Washer will fil and pump water out motor will not come on Have replaced the motor and the lid switch After replacing the motor the washer worked ok for about 4 or 5...


This is sounding like either a timer or a water level switch problem. I would elimnate the water level switch first. Here is why..... You had to tip the unit to change the motor. Tipping the unit would ensure that the small tube that runs from the bottom (side) of the wash tub to the water level control pressure switch cavitated. Once this is clear the water level control was for a while able to sense proper water levels and the diaphragm inside the pressure switch cycled normally. If the sens line had a pin hole in it or the water level control pressure switch contacts have a problem it will present the symptom you currently have.
I cheat.... I hook up an equal sized tube to the water level pressure switch and add pressure and release pressure orally to force the pressure switch to work. (Automotive vacuum line works like a charm!) If it works by physically forcing it to work then the timer is fine. The Pressure switch is probably ok also. The sense tube running from the presure switch to the tub would be the problem. With all water removed... (drain hose lowered too to empty the machine) tip the unit again. Then see if it will fill and agitate on a small load. Also check to see if it spins. IF it agitates and spins... the sense line if most likely the problem. (pin hole chaffed etc)

There is still a remote possibility of the Timer causing the problem OR the contacts inside the water level pressure switch as the problem. If you can find the tech data sheet inside the console there should be a wiring diagram. Check the water level control for power in and out both with water level reached and empty. If the contacts are working on the water level control pressure switch... your probably looking at the timer as the problem.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

The water level never stops, it just fills till it over flows


if on auto level select water level eg medium or low depending on amount of clothes this sometimes works dont use auto water level. If not check small pipe under touch board on top panel, make sure u unplug mains from plug pipe may be loose its small plastic goes to level sensor on right of board. If not level sensor faulty.

Dishlex global 500 dishwasher says ''of '' . It will not stop making weird noises. I Have had to turn it off at the wall.


Hi there.this is (over fill error).It has over filled & flooded water down into the base.It has tripped a flood switch in the base wich turns the drain pump on even though the washer is off.You can simply try tipping the washer to get the water out or you will need to disassemble the front kick panel at the bottom front to mop out the water.The switch will reset after you do this.Or wait a couple of days and the water will evaporate enough that the pumping will have stopped & the washer should work again.The booklet for your washer has water hight level settings in it.Sometimes someone leans against the washer and presses the buttons wich changes the water level to high & thats why this has probably happened in the first place.It may need setting to a lower level.

Everything works fine but it will not spin


Hi, you got water pump problem, some pump have a filter you can remove and clean, or some some small clothing could get into it. or you can open water pump and manually check for foreign object. you can empty machine, by lowering drain hose to floor level, you will need somthing to collect water, then check pump.

Maytag clothes washer, with pump and belt replaced in Nov. 2007, clothes were too wet after spin cycle


The start of the spin cycle is dependent on the pump pumpin out water and the later level switch sensing that the water level is low enough. The water level switch has (usually) a clear tube connected to it and is found in the control panel. You will want to check continuity at different times. First you will fill the tub to the highest water level. Then unplug the machine. By screwing in the screw on the water level switch. Scew it all the way in. then you will check continutity. there should be no cont. between green and brown. and there should be cont between green and black or yellowblack. Do this continuity test with the wires off the switch. Once this test is complete, reattach the wires and plug in the machine and set the timer on spin or drain. When the tub is pumped dry, stop the spin cycle and unplug the washer and do the continuity test again. This time you should have continutiy from green to brown. and no continuity from green to black or yellowblack. Now when i mention the colors that means the placement where those wires were. Make note before you remove them so that you can get them back to place. If you do not get these readings, the water level switch is bad, or there is a leak in the air pressure tube leading to it. At that point I would replace the entire switch and tube. I wish you the best of luck.

Kenmore 90 series top loader washer water level.


There are easy checks before you replace the level selector body

remove the trim plates at both ends of the control panel to expose Phillips head screws 1 at each end. remove the screws
lift and swing the control panel up and over the back, it is hinged at the top.
The washer can be operated in this condition for testing

1 Rremove the air hose, and blow it out.
often water remains in the tube after changing levels, the water is not compressible so a small change in water level in the tank, makes too much difference in the sensor.
reconnect the tube and try a cycle ~1/3 chance of fixing it

If fail,
2 The spring inside Kenmore water level sensors that reacts to air pressure in the tube is not up to the job and stretches, not noticeable till changing water level settings moves the anchor point of the spring.
pull off water level knob from control panel front, from control panel back depress lock tab at right of level selector body rotate counter clockwise 45 deg and remove
adjacent to selector knob shaft is 1/8inch nut, turn clockwise to raise water level counter-clockwise to lower water level, test, adjust, test adjust ~1/2chance of fixing it

If fail
replace level selector body
