Remove the bottom drawer and mop up the water that is in the sump, the flood switch is under the cover in the back left corner, you can try to dry it out with a hair-dryer, or just leave it for a day or so to dry on its own. You need to figure out why the water leaked in the first place, A common cause is cheap detergent, foaming too much and leaking out the overflow.

Can't close the door or it will fill up by its self and overflow can you help thanks

You don't say if it is a front or top loader. If it is a top loader, then most likely the problem is a clogged pressure tube to the level switch. There is a hose (tube) that connects near the bottom of the tub and runs up into the top of the machine where the level setting switch is. As the tub fills with water the air in the tube increases in pressure, When the level switch detects the proper pressure for the level, it shuts off the water. What can happen is that soap gunk or other things can clog the tube inlet and prevent the switch from detecting pressure. The easiest way to clear the tube is to remove the back of the control panel area and locate the tube where it attached to the setting switch. Remove the tube and blow thru it to clear the tube of the obstruction. It that works you should be good to go. Otherwise, if you cannot clear the obstruction from that end, you will need to access the bottom of the tub to get at the tube from the other end to clear it.

I have a GE wcx1070 and it will not agitate or spin will fill the tub and drain but won't spin. I have checked for obstrutions in the tub and under the agitater. and the belt looks good if it does spin it...

I think it might be the lid switch. 8e3407e.jpgas you can see it can fail mechanically and electrically. To get to the lid switch you remove the front panel firstf373b4d.jpgthen you can remove the top and access the slid switch.

Won't stop filling to agitate

You may have a defective water level switch in the back of the control panel or the tube running up to the switch from the outer tub bottom may be damaged causing an air leak (which operates the switch when rising water in the tub increases the air pressure in the tube). This switch must operate before the cycle will continue. Hope this helps!

Wate doesn't shut off...

its the over fill valve blocked or its packed up on you, if you take the top of or the back and look inside the washer you will see a small thin pipe coming from the bottom of the drum to the top of the vave block pull it off and blow down it to clear any muck in it it should work after this is done

Dosn't stop filling with water

you have a hose that goes from the bottom of your outer tub to a presure switch . This is also your water level switch. Sometimes your hose comes off but you could have a bad switch.You need to use a meter to check that.

The water won't shut off in my Neptune

davedun: Take a look at the [water load or water level] switch from the inside & u may see a rubber tube coming out and going to the bottom of the washer tub.The rubber tube should be connected to a VACUUM switch.This switch works by pressure from the weight of the tub when it is being filled up with water.When u set the water level switch on a "lite load" ,as the tub is being filled the diaphragm is pushed down causing a vacuum to pull down another switch which causes the water to stop, causing your machine to start washing, rinsing, etc. This vacuum switch could be of many configurations\shapes\sizes & will almost always be at the bottom of the tub to measure the weight of water going in.
The key is a rubber (clear-see through, or black) coming from the top of the control panel going to the switch.
2nd. electronics sensors on the side of the inner tub ( that catches the water ) to measure water weight. Hard to find, because they could look like anything. Even I have trouble finding them!!
P.S.S. get back to me if u need some more help.

Maytag washer PAV2300 water over flow

I had the same problem and went out to a website for Maytag washers. That website advised that the problem could be mechanical or electrical. In my case, the problem was a clogged tube and it took only ten or fifteen minutes to fix.
0. Unplug the machine.
1. Open up the front of the washer. Along the left hand side is a long transparent tube. The tube connects to a wallet size container on the side and near the bottom of the tub.
2. Inspect the transparent tube. It may be clogged where the tube meets the wallet sided container.
Note: When the tub is full, it creates pressure in that wallet size compartment which sends air up that tube to a pressure switch located within the panel at the top of the washer. The pressure switch flips and tells the machine - stop filling the tub with water. My machine had a visible clog in the bottom of the tube that carries the air from the bottom of the tub up to the pressure switch.
3. Disconnect the tube and clean. I used a pipecleaner to get most of the mold out. To completely clear the tube, remove the top panel and disconnect the tube from the pressure switch in the top panel and blow air down the tube.
4. Reconnect, test - and you should be good to go. If not, your pressure switch may be dead.

Dishwasher leaves residue in top rack only

Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough water. It could be cause of the switch level, which control water level in the tub. The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with your machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Be aware you should discoonect the power cable !!! Clear the tube (attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub) from any obstruction.In case it will not solve the problem, you should replace the switch. Good luck !
