The tube that monitors the level (creates pressure on a switch) is clogged or disconnected.

unclog or replace it and you will be fine ...

there is the possibility the switch is done for ... my vote is the tube.

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

Water large amounts on floor of shut off machine


To sufficiently inspect your washer to determine where to leak may be coming from, please review the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

If there is a huge gush of water coming from the washer as soon as you begin the fill cycle, this is commonly caused by a small air hose on the side of the washer drum that connects to the pressure switch. If this air hose comes loose,the water will pour from the wash tub as it begins to fill. This is an easy fix, if that is the only problem.

Another cause, can be a water inlet valve that is leaking by, or a pressure switch that does not keep the water supply shut off when not in use. This will cause the tub to fill up and spill over. The following link explains how to check for this as well:

Read through the information provided and let me know if you are having problems determining the cause of your problem. Please post back with your MODEL NUMBER so that I may be able to accurately determine how your washer is configured. I hope you find this information helpful.

A used washer I am trying to hook up . . I have the drain hose going into the floor drain. The washer fills while at the same time draining. So it never really fills enough.


Washing machines need to be drained into a standpipe. This is a drain that is about 36" off the floor. The drain line on your washer will work fine if you have it installed in a standpipe.
by putting it down into a floor drain, you're not going to allow the machine to fill. The stand pipe will allow your machine to fill and still pump the water out during spin cycle.

Make sure there's a drain hose with a hook on the top.

Check water level switch , or hose going to it from tub must be air tight may have pin hole in it.
Water level switch is the one that says small , medium or large on some washers.

Kenmore heavy duty 70 series extra capacity


This could be from a few things. First test. Turn on the washer to fill it up about 3/4 the way. Now turn it back off. Does the water stop? No? You probably have a bad water valve. Replace it. Yes? Listen for the sounds of running water or look for water on the floor. Do you see/ hear this? Yes? Your pressure hose has probably come off, reattach it. If it does turn off and there is not further sounds or leaking water, you probably need to replace your pressure switch.
