While it is filling up try this. Unplug the washer from the wall, if the water still runs then you need to replace the mixing valve. If the water stops then take the screws out at the base of the console and flip the controls back. Look for the clear hose that goes to the water pressure switch and make sure that it is connected. If it is connected take it off the switch and blow through it to see that it is clear of any obstructions.
If this only overfills after the first ore second wash then you may have the slow drain and the drain hose is in the downspout too tight.
Possible items needed;
#1 mixing valve
#2 pressure switch
#3 plumber

Whirlpool top loader agitates when filling up

Whirlpool top loader agitates when filling up
Nothing, I'm not sure what the problem could be because it does not happen all the time and when it does, it usually fixes itself. M# WTW57ESVW1

your water supply perhaps it is too low pressure ....

so the machine isnt filling fast enough

so check at the machine side of the cold water filler hoze
in the machine end is a filter cone
you need to carefully pull it out with flat nose pliers and clean it
if this doesnt fix it then perhaps the inlet valve is bad...

Washing machine does not stop filling with water and overflows ge top loader wlsr2000g3ww model number

The water fill valve (the plastic thing that the hot and cold hoses go to) has an obstruction (piece of rust or minerals from the plumbing) and the valve won't fully close. A speck in the right place is enough to cause overfilling.


The water level switch is defective.


The tubing that is attached to the level switch is loose or off. This hose must be tight on the fittings.

My kenmore 800 washer is off cycle for example when i start a load of clothes it starts agitating before filling, and doesn't always spin all the water out of the clothes

I have the exact same problem with my Kenmore 800 top loader, Model # 110.29822800. It is only 1.5 years old. Any suggestions?

My washing machine has had a high-pitched noise when it fills with cold water ever since we moved to a new house. This doesn't happen when it is filling with hot (or even warm) water. We've tried turning...

Are you sure you have the hot pipe on the hot inlet and the cold on the cold inlet ie red to red black to black (easily done), please check carefully. if OK then I think you have picked up some dirt in the inlet filter and this will need to be removed and cleaned,remove lid and follow pipes inside to plastic tank at top near drawer, filter housing can be seen there.

Leaves white marks on coloured clothes

I'd try putting the machine on a hot fill wash, max water level put in half a cup of baking soda when the machine starts to washer turn it off and leave it to soak overnight, then let it finish the cycle the next day. Also make sure you tip some of the hot water down the beach dispenser and clean all around the top of the machine

Washing machine wont stop filling with cold water

Since you removed the screens, the sand probably has entered the valve and damaged the spool. It's apparently sticking open. You need to replace the complete valve and keep the screens in place.

Whirlpool top loader

You either have a defective pressure switch or water inlet valve. Start to fill the machine with warm water so that both solenoids on the water inlet valve (hot and cold) are activated. After about 30-60 seconds, push the timer knob in to stop water flow. If the water continues to flow, replace the water inlet valve. If this is the case, it may take a few times of starting and stopping water flow to allow solenoid to heat up and become symptomatic. If water flow stops abruptly each time knob is pushed in, you most likely have a defective pressure switch (water level switch).
