The FRIGIDAIRE washing machine as in all washers have what is called a WATER LEVEL SWITH. This switch is on the top and this is where you select small,medium or large water levels. This water level switch has a clear hose from the top of swith to the side of the out tub. Please check the following:
1- check that the hose is hooked up on both sides and inspect it that it does not have any holes.
2- There could be a small sock or something foreign in between the inner and out drum therefore clogging up this hole.
3- Replace the water-level swith.

Kenmore 80 series,CH2874165. Continues to fill with water and never starts to agitation. Will spin and drain no problem


In order for the filling to stop and the wash programme to begin, the brain needs to know there is enough water in the tub. There are a variety of methods of detecting the tub water level - pressure switch, float switch or electronic moisture detector.
These things tend to be placed outside the tub and connected by narrow hoses that sometimes perish and leak or become blocked with residue. Sometimes the switch itself fails...

Indesit iwb5113 keeps filling up


The water level in your, and most other, washing and dishwashing machines is controlled by an air pressure switch that senses water level by the rising air pressure compressed in the pressure, (level), switch body itself. This air pressure is usually transmitted by a thin rubber tube on the bottom of the washing machine drum, or sump hose. As the water gets higher in the drum, air is compressed in the level switch until it operates, and turns the fill valves off. The pressure switch is always mounted at the top of the washing machine cabinet - look for a circular switch with the thin rubber or plastic tube fitted into the bottom. What can happen is if the rubber tube rubs against moving parts in the washer, it can get a hole worn in it - so the air does not compress and the water doesn't turn off.. You will have to examine the tube very carefully to find holes like this. Alternatively, the tube could have come off, or blocked with limescale at the bottom end - try removing the tube at the pressure switch end and blowing through it - any blockage must be removed. A last, rare, possibility is the rubber diaphragm in the pressure switch is leaking - but very very rare. Most modern machines have an electronic backup that measures fill time in case the pressure switch fails. If your machine floods, it doesn't have this.

Water leaks out of bottom of washer


The screw in the washer tub, is not a factor in this. I'm not sure what brand of machine you have, but several machines have a fill hose that connects to the outer tub of the machine. Sometimes when a machine gets loaded heavily, during the spin cycle items in the machine can actually knock the fill hose right out of the tub. Then when the machine trys to fill the next time, all the water runs down the outside of the tub and leaks out of the bottom of the machine.
Repair is to open up the machine. You'll need to remove the top cover and that will give you access to the hose/tub connection. It may be as simple as reinserting the hose back into the drum or you may need to replace it if it got too damaged and won't stay in the hole correctly.
If you need specific how to's on opening up the machine, get back to us with the make and model info and we'll be happy to help you open that washer up!
