If your washer is overflowing, the problem could be the air dome hose that attaches to the pressure switch, or the pressure switch itself. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575901-washer_overflows

Check the pressure switch (located behind the load level selector knob on the control panel) to make sure the clear plastic air hose is still attached. If it is, you need to follow the hose to the air dome on the lower right hand side of the wash tub. In order to do this you will need to remove the exterior washer case for full access. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3631789-washer_case_removal_whirlpool_top

Check the entire length of the air hose to make it is not clogged or split anywhere. If the air hose leaks, or is clogged, the pressure switch will not sense the pressure differential from the wash tub as the washer fills. This leads to an overflow problem.

If the air hose is intact, you may have a failed pressure switch. Make sure the electrical connections are snug and not corroded. Unplugging the connector(s), checking the contacts to ensure they are clean and reseating them can help. CAUTION: Make sure you UNPLUG the washer before servicing.

If all else fails, replace your pressure swtich. If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement is 3366848. You can purchase on line at any of the following websites:

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

All these sites offer great service and competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list also include exploded view parts illustrations to assist you in parts identification/location. The pressure switch is listed as item 12 under the "Controls and Rear Panel" listing.

If you have any questions about this repair, or if your model number differs, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Washer doesn't stop filling with water


If this only happens when the machine is turned on,the tube from the tub to the water level switch is pinched or broken. If the clear plastic tube is not pinched or broken,the water level switch in the control console is bad. If the machine lets water through when it is in the OFF position,the water valve where the hoses connect are bad.

Kenmore oasis washer model #110.27062600 starts to fill then stops. Filling with F1 code.


Hi

It's a communication problem between the central control unit and the electronic control box."F1" error code means "Primary control failure" and suggested correction is to replace the machine/motor control assembly. If you use a screw driver in front of the machine to open the top you will find a repair manual on the inside of the front panel.

There are three long screws behind the control unit "hood", in the back-top of the washer, facing straight up and down. After unscrewing,lift the hood up and forward to find the electronic control. First, you should check all the wires and make sure the connections are ok. If that still doesn't fix it, unplug all the wires, and take the electronic control out by unscrewing one 1/4" bolt. Put the new one in and re-wire everything (it shows what wires go where on the electronic control box

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

My washer won't stop filling water


Either the small plastic tube that goes from the tub to the fill valve switch is loose or broken, or the water fill valve is jammed due to mechanical failure or a chunk of debris got by the inlet screen and is jammed in the valve. Neither of these is a big deal to fix if you are mechanically inclined. Checking the tube involves looking inside the machine from the control panel to the tub. A fill valve is about equal in difficulty to repair as replacing a circuit breaker in a home electric service panel.

Good luck.

LEAKS ALL THE TIME Is your GE washer leaking all the time, even when not in use? If so the problem is the fill hoses or the valve. Look behind the washer to see if water is coming from the hoses. If not, take the cover off to the control panel. Once off, you should see if the water valve and if there is leakage - it needs replacing (if it is leaking). This is the most popular water valve for GE top-loading washers made after 1995 and the part number is WH13X86 Order Here. show?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.1&type=10. Note that some models have a water valve with more than two coils. In this case, you will need to order the valve by model number at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0 Buy Fill Hoses Here. show?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.1&type=10
LEAKS DURING FILL CYCLE Is your GE washer leaking during the fill cycle? If so the problem may be in the valve. Follow instructions above, only this time start the fill cycle before looking at the valve.
If your washer overflows with water during fill cycle your problem is the water level control or the water valve. If you must cut the water off from the house plumbing to stop the water then there is no need for testing, just replace the water valve. First, you need to turn on the washer. The washer should start to fill with water, now cut the washer off and on repeatedly (note to yourself whether the water turned off every time). If it does cut off every time you cut the washer off, then it's most likely in the water level control. If it keeps running after you cut the washer off then, the water valve is bad and needs replacing. (Note that the valve can stick intermittently so it still may be bad if it passed the test) Water valves can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0
If the water valve doesn't stick in the first test then you need to check the water level control. First, remove the front of washer (insert butter knife between the top and the front pushing on the clips) then look on the side of the tub and you should see a tube attached to a box. Remove the tube (make sure all the water is out of the tub) look in the tube to see if is stopped up. Often it will stop up near the end. If it is, you can clean it out with a toothpick. Once it's clean, reinstall it and your washer is fixed. If the tube is not stopped up reinstall the tube. Now set the water level control on the lowest setting and start filling the washer with water. If the water stops when the tub is approximately half full (this varies with every model) turn it up to the next level (you may have to reset it). Repeat until the tub is full. If at any the water level gets above the last row of holes in the tub, unplug the washer. If the water stops running when you unplug the washer, replace the water level control. If the water doesn't stop, turn the water off at the wall then replace water valve. Water level contorls and water valves can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0 . LEAKS DURING WASH Is your GE washer leaking during wash? If so the problem is the tub seal (seals around the transmission where it goes through the tub), drain hoses (including the tub to pump hose) or the pump. First take the front off the washer (insert butter knife between the top and the front, pushing on the clips) then start the fill cycle. Now start watching until you see a leak. If the leak is coming from the tub seal, the transmission needs to be replaced (note that changing the transmission is expensive and takes special tools, so you may consider replacing the washer). If the leak is coming from the drain hose or the pump you need to replace it. If you don't see it leak at all, your soap may be the problem. To check this fill the washer with water and the amount of soap you normally would use. Then start the washer and watch the tube coming from the left back of the tub (the overflow pipe). If soapsuds come out of the overflow pipe then try cutting down on your soap or switch to another brand. This may fix your problem. These parts can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0
LEAKS DURING PUMP OUT Is your GE washer leaking during pump out? If so the first thing you should look at is the drainpipe (to your house plumbing). Fill the washer with water, and then turn it to spin and start it. Now while it's pumping, look at your drainpipe if water backs out (it may not back unless you have soap in the tub), then the problem is in your plumbing. If it doesn't, follow the same steps as above in "leaks during wash." Only this time watch for leaks during pump out as well.

How do I get to the control panel on a Maytag washer?


First, does the machine stop filling if you pull the plug? If not, he is wrong and you need the fill valve. The piece the hoses go into. If it does stop when plug pulled then he is likely correct.

Pull machine away from the wall. Disconnect power. The control panel has two plastic end caps. The rear edge of each end cap will show a hole which has a partially covered Phillips head screw in it. Put a screwdriver in and remove the screw in each end cap.

Move to the front of the washer. Grasp each end cap and pull straight toward you about 1/4 " to 1/2 " then lift. The control panel should disengage from the top of the machine. The top of the control panel stays attached to the back plate of the washer. Rotate the front of the control up. This will expose all parts in the control panel.

Look for a 1/4" clear hose coming from inside the machine to one of the switches. This small hose can become detached from the switch and not send the "full" signal to shut the water off. It may also develop a small air leak which prevents the signal. If the hose is detached...reattaching and adding a hose clamp will prevent future detachment. if not detached, the pressure (level) switch itself is likely the problem.

Reverse the above process to reattach the control panel. If the machine is full spin to empty before testing your repair to remove water from tube. Good Luck.

Washer wont stop filling


There is probably a plastic tube running from the tub to a pressure switch which controls the water level cutoff on control panel. One can locate this by taking the backcover off and looking at the water level switch and following the tube to the connection on the tub. Tube must fit on level switch tightly for it to work properly.

Washer continues to fill until it overflows


I had same problem today. It was just a tube disconnected from the water level sensor. Raise the top of the washer and look on the left side of the tub. There should be a plastic tube running from the water level sensor to the control panel. Make sure it is connected. If not simple reconnect the tube and you should be good to go.

Water will not stop filling the washer


I just fixed this problem on my GE washer that overflowed earlier into my hallway and living room. The fix required removing the tube from its connection at the outer tub and cleaning out some residue that was preventing air from moving to the sensor at the top of the machine at the control panel. No tools were needed other than a large steak knife to undo the clips to remove the front panel of the machine and a small flat head screw driver that I used to clean out the plastic pressure hose.

The good news is that even if this had not worked and the sensor/switch needed to be replaced, the part is available for replacement at the local hardware superstore and a few online outlets for around thirty dollars. Replacement of the switch looks to be relatively simple by disconnecting the existing wiring housing and replacing with a new part.

There are several detailed diagrams available online by doing a search for your product/ model number.

Be sure to check the hose before replacing the pressure sensor/switch- this will save time and money.

Good luck!

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.
