When filling the washer machine, the washer machine keeps filling until it overflows. Do i need to replace a pressure sensor or some kind of water meeter so that the washer machine "clicks" and begins to wash the load instead of overfilling?
washung machine continues to fill with water durning the fill and wash cycle. The water will pump out durning the wash cycle to stop the machine from over flowing but it doesn't stop filling
Hey i have and older washing machine and i have replaced the switch board at the back but have put the black orange white and grey wires in the wrong places in the circle bit that runs the machine.... just wondering if you could help me????

It depending on exactly what your seeing that will determine the problem.
Does your washer start agitating and keep filling?? if yes it does start agitating and the water continuies to fill try disconnectiing the power and if it keeps filling what would be wrong is that the water inlet valve is sticking open and it would need to replaced
If the washer continues to fill and does not start agaitating would be a defective water level switch as you suspect it may be.If ya disconnect the power and it STOPS filling replace the water level(pressure) switch.
What is happening is that the fill sensor is apparently not working. The washer will continue filling until it overflows the washer! Replace the pressure switch. This will solve your problem and cost is about $35.00
Before replacing the switch check the hose which comes to the switch also
It is possible that hose has a hole in it or has come undone. If there is no pressure in the hose, then it wont actuate the switch, and thus fill forever.
If your air tube is in good shape, it could be the switch itself, it may be adjustable.
Overflowing can be caused by a faulty pressure switch or tube from switch to the tub. It is operated by air pressure from water filling in the tub. If this does not activate then the inlet valve will continue to allow water to enter the machine. If it is overflowing during spin only it is most likely something obstructing the pump. If it is filling the tub even when the machine is off the problem is the inlet valve.
Trash and sand is in the bottom of the tub blocking the pressure tube. Remove the tube from the water level switch and blow through it to get the seddiment out. Replace the tube securely empty any standing water and retry'
Hello,Sounds like a problem with either the inlet valve or the pressure switch, way to determine which on is while it is filling pull the plug..if water keeps filling it's the inlet valve..if it stops filling it's the pressure switch..If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again..good luck!!

If the water continues when electricity is discontinued the soleoid valve is jammed open, a fleck of rust or something, not designed to be repaired, it is easier and cheaper to replace. they are a standard part that fits 99% of all washers ~$10-20 at the local parts guy.
Usually only the cold solenoid has failed. it gets used more often.
If you are like me and only use cold water, swap the hoses on the taps, and swap the wire connectors on the solenoid valves, so the former hot is now cold, and you will get about the same number of years before you have to replace anything
