Re: washer fills till flooded

Plug off the wall; open up behind. You will find a thin hose running from the switch area to the outlet area. Carefully try the hose clip to remove the hose from the top, blow into it - it should be free. Free it by removing anything blocking it, usually some dirt from below; the hose should not be kinked. Refix. This is the water level hose, which signals the machine to start or stop water.

Water Overflow

hi there,

i would recommend checking the water level switch or lid switch and also the cable leading to it. that is what sends a signal to the machine control to stop filling with water.

Water sometimes does not shut off. flooded twice. happens intermittently.

If when the machine is flooding if you turn off power to the machine and it continues to fill: replace water inlet valve. If flooding water stops filling when power is interupted: clean out the end of the water level switch tube where it connects to the outer wash tub.
