Your washer has a blocked over fill pipe if you cat take the back off you will see a small pipe going up from the bottom of the brum to the velve block pop it off and blow through it to clear it, you wont get any more over fills after that

SOURCE: washing machine overflowed

Try filling it again and stay with it, when it starts to get near the top, unplug it, if water continues coming out you need a new valve, if it stops, then the level switch inside the control panel is bad

SOURCE: KENMORE WASHING MACHINE WATER OVERFLOW

Is this a TOP LOADER? Or, a FRONT LOADER? This problem is commonly attributed to either a leaking water inlet valve, or a pressure switch malfunction. The following links explain how to diagnose the problem and repair as necessary:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3753517-whirlpool_top_load_washer_fills_when_not http://www.fixya.com/support/r3753262-front_load_washer_fills_when_not_in_use

The easiest and most common cause of this problem is the small plastic air hose on the pressure switch coming loose. It can usually be fixed by simply reattaching the hose. However, read through all the information provided and double check everything to make sure.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and have great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

The twin tub connected to the washing machine doesn't drain.


The laundry tub does not have adequate drain size to handle discharge from the washing machine. In addition, the kitchen and laundry area piping may not be correctly vented.

Our washing machine sometimes over flows water!!!


Could be a faulty water level switch or sediment in the base of tub partially blocking the air pressure tube. Remove the tube at the switch/control and blow it out, then re-secure it tight.
