Most washers have a pressure switch in the control panel that controls the water level. A plastic or rubber tube connects from the bottom of the tub to the pressure switch. The washer will fail to stop filling if the tube comes loose or develops a leak. The other possible problem is that the pressure switch is defective.

I had the same problem. How I fixed my problem.... 1st blow out the line, mine had water in it. 2 put line back on switch, use new hose clamp, I used a 3/8 gates hose clamp from the auto parts store. on the pressure switch there is a adjustment screw. back it all the way out. wipe clean and dry with q tip. put screw back in. tighten all the way down, be gentle it's plastic don't strip it! then back it out till it's level with the holder. turn on washer when the tub fills about 4 to 6 inches of water , 1-2 inches from the bottom of glass the water should shut off, if it shuts off early turn screw 1\2 a turn till water level is reached. the pressure in the line should be around .15 to .20 psi. remeber to check your water pressure too, it must be between 20 to 75 psi so the valve will close.

SOURCE: washer fills up only half way but water keeps trying to fill tub

That is because the water level switch get stuck when water level reaches that particular point.

The water level switch is activated either by a floater sensor or by a membrane sensor that detects water pressure/volume, depending on the model.
On washing machines it is usually a membrane switch, and that is faulty on your machine.

SOURCE: My washing machine doesnt stop filling the tub when the right water level is reached

Not familiar with this model. When a washing machine fills with water up to a predetermined level, it usually operates a pressure switch which will turn off the water valve, and redirect the power to the programmer, or heater, or some other stage of the programme. If there is a blockage of powder or gunge in the tube leading to the pressure switch this would prevent air from rising up the tube to operate the switch. Tom.

Water doesnt stop fillinG in panasonic NA F60A6 WASHING MACHINE


Fyi. All new washing maching already tested on their functionality and features but not test run with water intake and drain function. I would like to share My experience last time with this model. The water outlet valve will release by motor when you set to drain mode.it suppose manage to retract back by spring when drain process finish or afte small you change to wash mode.
Take a look on the spring movement.normally it not properly hold valve switch hence the retracted spring not block the valve to stop water drain. Just rectify the alignment of the valve swich which directly connected to the retractable spring.

Washing machinve overflows intermittently - sometimes the water stops and sometimes it doesnt.  Occurs on all the cycles not just the first fill


Thats caused by the pressure switch or the fill valve. Try checking the tub for a clear hose coming from the side and be sure its attached.

Gcxrpo9odoww GE washer .. On fill up, it over flows onto floor?


Fill switch could be bad, or fill tube could be plugged making water not stop and it keeps filling. The fill tube goes from fill load selector switch to bottom of tub. Remove from top and blow it out. If this doesnt work replace water load size selector switch.

My washing machine does not stop filling up it runs over.It still spins the water out, but was making an awful grinding noise.


FIRST, IF IT DOESNT STOP FILLING YOU EITHER HAVE A CLOGGED VACUUM LINE OR A BAD PRESSURE SWITCH. AS FOR THE NOISE WHEN IT SPINS, TAKE OFF THE BELT, CHECK PULLEY FOR THE MOTOR AND PUMP, IT SHOULD SPIN FREELY AND TIGHT. IF THEY BOTH GOOD, AND THE NOISE IS AROUND THE MIDDLE OF THE TUB ON TOP OF THE TRANSMISSION, MEANS YOU HAVE A BAD TUB BEARING

Water keeps filling and doesnt go to next cycle


Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tube. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.

After tube is clear spin machine for 3 mins. Test water fill again.
