Behind the backsplash of the machine (where all the knobs and controls are) are several important mechanisms. One of them is a plunger, which detects the water level in the tub. When the water reaches the specified level, the plunger drops. This completes the circuit which kicks the cycle from fill to wash.
I suspect that this plunger is either dirty or broken.

Hope that helps.

How to fix amana w10240534c washer wont fill?


check your water inlet valve. Check it for continuity with a multi meter it should show Ohms or a closed circuit. To test it when water is overflowing unplug the unit and see if it still overflows or continues to fill. no fill If it stops when unplugged. Then it is not a water inlet problem but an electrical signal problem going to ur water inlet valve. Possibly from the panel or board.

If your washer just keeps filling it and the pressure valve is not to blame I would suggest that your tube coming off of the pressure valve might be blocked or partially blocked. If you have hard water where you live try taking off that line (it just pulls off fairly easy) and squirt some CLR into the tube. A good way to check to see if there is any restriction is when you take off that tube. You should be able to blow though it very easily.

Myn washer always overflowes as it filling it wont


This is usually the pressure switch. Also you could check the water inlet valve if water is still flowing in the machine after it stops. There are free videos on testing these components at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html
You can also punch in your model # for diagrams

Fills up with water and wont stop


if it still fills , with power off, the valve is letting by water and has become faulty,if water stops with power off,check for smudged powder at the lower part of the pressure switch pipe giving a false read to pressure switch,other than that the pressure switch has become faulty,look at the pressure switch pipe first for blockage,hope this helps

Can't Open the Washer Door---Our Clothes are held Hoatage


Check and ensure that the tubes and passages to the water level pressure sensor are not blocked by caked detergent, lint , etc.
( this may have caused the water overflow in the first place)
clean up the internal parts that are wetted by the overflow.

clean the door lock mechanism. ( this normally works on a temperature delay mechanism, if cleaning does not work, replace)

all the above done with the power unplugged and water inlets unplugged , of course

Overflow


Hello,

If you unplug the machine and the water still comes in, you have a bad Water Inlet Valve. If when you turn the machine on at in overfills and you can stop the water by turning off the washer timer then you have one of a couple possible issues.

First, you pressure sensing tube could be clogged
Second, you just plain have a defective pressure sensing switch.

If you have anymore questions, feel free to comment back.

Thank you

Overflowing water


If the water comes out when filling, check your water valve by unplugging the washer when it is filling. If the water still runs, replace the valve. If the water stops, check the small tube that goes from the water pressure switch (in the consul) to the bottom of the tub. This must be connected without any holes or obstructions. If this is ok, replace the water pressure switch.
