HI. This will occur if the water inlet valve is malfunctioning(Not closing all the way). Follow The procedure below to confirm the damage.

The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it at the back of the washer. Start by turning off the water supply at the valves on the wall. Disconnect both hoses from the back of the washer. Place the hoses into a bucket and turn them on to confirm that you are getting good water pressure and to clear out any debris from the line.

Inspect the filter screens on both the hoses and the inlet valve for debris build up. If you find any debris, clean it out. Use caution to avoid damaging the filter screens because the screens in the valve are not replaceable.

If debris was not present then proceed to the next step of testing the solenoids. Access to the valve may be easiest by opening the top or the back of the washer, depending upon make and model.

There are two wires connected to each solenoid on the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals ( Be sure to not pull the wires). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. Test the second one in the same way as the first.

If the solenoid is working properly, but water leaks through the valve even when the washer is off, then the valve itself is the problem. Debris may be preventing the valve from closing. If the valve cannot be cleaned, it will have to be replaced. The valve can also fail mechanically. So even if it passes the electrical test, it may still require replacement. If you have ruled out all other possibilities, go ahead and replace the valve.

Did you find a solution yet?
If your machine isn't plumbed in, so you have to fill the reservoir, I find it is easy to overfill, and the water runs out over the lip. I placed a fishing float with the long bit sticking up through the hole, so I can see when the water level is too low.

Atlantis washer


Dear Spencer,
OH the trouble I have seen with my washer. Its only 8 years old and I had the same problem with mine it would fill up the rinse cycle and then just sit there with the water in it. I had a tech come out and he told me I wasn't distributing the clothes correctly, mind you I'm 54 and I think I know how to do laundry!
However I had just 1 month ago replaced the water pump because my son decided he wanted to do a weeks wash in one load. So what I think happened is that somehow the machine was knocked out of being level. The guy said he lubricated the motor cradle and leveled the machine, knock on wood just for today the cycle is running all the way through. Hope this helps

Will not agitate or spin,makes loud noise during those cycles


Sounds like coupling gears between transmission and motor... they did away with the belt and went direct drive with coupling gears. It can pump water out but nothing else. water pump is mounted to front of motor is why it will pump water out.
