If the washer overfills and does not start tumbling, test water level switch and control panel.
If the washer starts tumbling , and the inlet valve stays open, then it is either inlet valve faulty or timer board faulty.
In rare occasions the problem can also be caused by a contact , in that case you replace the wiring harness.
A full test is done reading volts at inlet valve. For safety reasons I suggest not doing any test that requires power on the appliance . Always disconnect power before doing mainteinance on your appliance.
Parts and diagrams can be found at Sears. You will need to enter full model number: 11015942401.
Let me know if you have more questions.
Please do not forget to leave feedback.
Thanks.

Please reply with the make and model # of the washer for more exact help - but it seems as if the timer has failed - or the water valve has failed.

If the water turns off when you stop the cycle - the timer is faulty.
If the water runs when the power is off - the valve (or solenoid on the valve) is faulty.

Reply with the Make and Model # so I can determine the cause more precisely. Please use the "Continue With This Expert" option so we are connected in the future.
Thanks!!

My washing machine fills up with water but does not continue the wash cycle. Sometimes when you slam the lid the washer will continue the wash cycle to the end. Other times the washer stays filled up...


Sounds like the lid safety switch is either out of adjustment, or needs replacement.

Most washers will fill with the lid open, but no continue a cycle where the drum or agitator spin, unless it senses the lid is closed.

Kenmore will not agitate


The timer is the most common problem. Call any appliance parts store and tell them the model number and ask for price for new timer. Also call sears appliance parts and get price. But a new timer and install it.

Washer continues to work even if water is not filled to top and even if i try to stop continues to spin


A defective pressure switch can interfere with the cycles that depend upon the switch to indicate when water has filled or emptied from the tub. It can also result in underfilling or overfilling of the tub. The switch routes current from the timer control to the temperature switch and the water inlet valve when the tub needs to be filled. Once full, the pressure switch cuts the current and reroutes it to the motor on the timer control to continue the cycle.

Washer will not spin


normally i would suggest changing motor carbons for hotpoint washers, but my experience is that the WMA motor armature is weaker than the carbons, normally if there is no connection fault a replacement motor is the answer 9 times out of 10, not a job for the amature
