Filling With Water

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

This is probably a control board failure, which should be replaced by someone familiar with them.
If you are handy, you can do it yourself.
If you need assistance, let me know.

Water level control switch not working. even i set water level to very low it just keeps filling and has overflowed. i am guessing that the switch needs to be replaced.


Hello,

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.

I HAVE A GE WASHER THAT FILLS WITH WATER AND OVERFLOWS. DOESN'T MATTER WHAT SIZE LOAD, IT CONTINUES TO FILL WITH WATER AND OVERFLOWS. IT STOPS WHEN I HIT THE STOP/PAUSE BUTTON.


There is a pressure sensor that needs to be looked into. USUALLY, there is a chamber, on the outside of the washer tub, and out of the top of it is a small plastic hose. This hose runs up to an electrical switch.
Too much soap, over time, can plug up this system, so the machine has no idea how much water is going in...and keeps filling..... Sometimes the hose comes loose, but this makes a fairly immediate water leak, so I suspect something is plugged.

My washer last nite kept filling up w water. & never would stop (until i stopped it myself)- its like the Sensot-or full indicatrer? stopped working- & needless to say it fllooded my laundry...


there is a water height sensor -- this sensor works via a small tube that is connected to the outside drum and runs down to the pressure sensor,, when water reaches a certain height the pressure sensor stops the fill cycle.

My whilpool calypso continues to fill machine with water until it overflows.


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.

Why do the stackable washers always overflow with water. Is it a sensor problem or what?


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.

Water keeps going and overflows


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

You will have to open the top panel for steps below

Water level control is handled by the water level pressure switch inside the top panel. It is about 3.25 inches in diameter, has 3 wires connected to it and a hose that looks like a small vacuum line.

Check that vacuum looking line for any holes, kinks or disconnects.

You will need about 3 feet of the same knid of line available from any autoparts store for this test.

Remove the machine side hose and connect the 3 ft hose you just obtained. DO NOT drop the machine hose into the machine.

Place the timer on the wash cycle and start the cycle
Result = fill

Force air into the hose orally until you hear a click.
Result = fill stop agitation begin

If it does not pass this test then the pressure switch is bad.

If water never stops flowing the water inlet valve has debris internally and will probably have to be replaced.

Don't forget to reconnect the machine side hose to the pressure switch.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Kelly

Then remove the vacuum

My washing machine, dispite what water level it is set on, keeps filling and filling until it overflows. What is the problem?


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' screw%20removal.jpg

Fill will not stop


you may have a problem with your pressure switch. or sometimes they call it the water level switch.

try to use it in the small level and see if it would stop filling around medium or large quantities of water.

if it would stop filling , then replace the water level sensor.

tnx 4 using fixya,
