You'll need to replace your water valve/ Something is stuck inside of it causing it not to completely close. It is not a serviceable part. A replacement should be availible from a local appliance parts store or from the manufactures web site. Once you have your part, open the console and remove the cabinet. This will let you get to the water valve to change it out.

My washer fills and doesn't stop. I try to advance it to the spin cycle but none of the cycles work. I changed the lid switch because it wouldn't fill at all. Now it fills and nothing else. Tested...


The fill switch is bad. That's the only "safety" on the washer that will shut the water off after reaching desired depth. To test it, run your machine on the various water levels. For example, start out on the low setting. If the water doesn't shut off after the tub is half full, then it's the fill switch inside the unit next to the tub.

Water level does not recognize level....does not stop filling


I had the same problem, its the water-fill hose sensor located at the back of the tub. Sometimes it pops off if the tub goes out of balance, (poor design, no clamp on it) so if you can get in there see if the hose is properly fitted over the connector to the tub, happened twice to me, an easy fix, go by a clamp to keep it on.

Continuously adds water, won't cycle & agitate, spins only when manually move dial.Please Help!


If the water is not overflowing onto the floor, then you have a water siphoning problem. raise and loop the drain hose behind the washer so that it is higher than the water level in the machine.

if the water runs over the top of the tub onto the floor and doesn't shut off until you turn the machine off, then you have a pressure switch problem.

if the only way to shut the water off is to turn it off at the faucet then you have a water valve problem.

Water doesn't shut off


Hi There
I have looked up your problem that you are having. Read this and let me know how it goes. Hope this gets you in the right direction.
If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve Water-level switch Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve. Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.\
Thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

The water will not shut off after filling up the washing machine and floods the wash room


Sand or trash in the air line going up to the water level switch. Blow out that tube and connect it back secure. Pump out any water in the tub at the time of the fix and retry on low level.Look at this diagram: water%20level%20operation.jpg As you can see the rubber tube from the bottom of the tub allows air pressure to push against the switch till it shuts down the valve and starts the wash cycle. Remedy this problem: Simply remove the tube from the switch and blow it out. Use them lungs!. Get that sand and trash out of the sump. Reconnect the hose tightly and pump out any standing water. Then restart the machine. If you have a good tight connection the machine should start working like normal. No parts needed!

Water fills up in tub but wont shut off flooded


Sounds like a problem with either the inlet valve or the pressure switch, the way to determine which is bad... while the machine is filling pull the power plug..if the water keeps filling it's the inlet valve that is going to be bad..if it stops filling it's going to be the pressure switch. The pressure switch is located in the control panel and has a small rubber pipe attached.once you have figured which it is replace it good luck.
If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again..Mike

Keeps filling with water


The water level in a washing machine is determined by the pressure switch. The switch is located behind the load selector, water level, load size (has various names depending on model and manufacturer) knob on the operator console. If the switch malfunctions, the water will not shut off and the washer will overflow.

Now...before assuming the switch is defective, a common problem that occurs is the small air hose on the pressure switch coming loose or leaking. This air hose attaches from the wash tub to the pressure switch. The pressure swtich senses the change in air pressure as the tub fills and shuts the water off at the selected level. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r762094-washer_overflows

To access your pressure switch, unplug the washer and open the operator console. Look for a clear plastic hose. If it is NOT attached, you may have found your problem. Reconnect and test operate.

If it IS attached, check the entire length of the hose all the way to the wash tub for any cracks of leaks. In addition, remove the electrical connection(s) and check for corrosion. Clean if necessary.

If all these preliminary steps don't solve your problem, replace your pressure switch. Read through the link I provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope you find this information helpful.

Amana washer won't fill with water


1st I checked the power, compressor in garage had tripped the breaker to the washer circuit. This model has no bells or whistles to tell you if the power is on to the unit. Reset the breaker and unit works.

The water won't shut off in my Neptune


davedun: Take a look at the [water load or water level] switch from the inside & u may see a rubber tube coming out and going to the bottom of the washer tub.The rubber tube should be connected to a VACUUM switch.This switch works by pressure from the weight of the tub when it is being filled up with water.When u set the water level switch on a "lite load" ,as the tub is being filled the diaphragm is pushed down causing a vacuum to pull down another switch which causes the water to stop, causing your machine to start washing, rinsing, etc. This vacuum switch could be of many configurations\shapes\sizes & will almost always be at the bottom of the tub to measure the weight of water going in.
The key is a rubber (clear-see through, or black) coming from the top of the control panel going to the switch.
2nd. electronics sensors on the side of the inner tub ( that catches the water ) to measure water weight. Hard to find, because they could look like anything. Even I have trouble finding them!!
P.S. TURN THE POWER OFF AND UNPLUG !!!!
P.S.S. get back to me if u need some more help.

Water keeps going and going and going!


the water is draining back to the ocean. The drain hose was not emptied properly from its last use. Put the machine in spin cycle (about 5 minutes) only to spin out the water from the outer tub completely and retry washer. If still problem, then visual check drain hose that it still has a "rising" section higher in altitude than the water level of inner tub (when working properly) before it makes a U-turn downward to send back to the ocean. You can also test the drain hose by putting machine in fill mode and crimping off the hose (fold hose over) to simulate a good drain hose. At this test, you should not "feel" water running through the hose if successfully crimped.
