Question about Washing Machines
The water does want to stop coming into the machine even when you lift the lid up. (This generally stops all machine function). We now have a flooded laundry floor!!
Most washing machines have a length of clear tubing external of the drum assembly (inside the housing). One end connects to the lower section of the drum, allowing water to enter the tubing. The other end of tube connects right up to the top, and usually inside the back panel (where all electrical wiring is) This end is connected to a pressure switch..As the water begins to fill the machine, it also rises the same height in the tubing.The tube is now sealed at both ends. The rising water creates air pressure inside the tube, activates the pressure switch and via electrical contacts closes the water inlet valve(s).
