My drum fills with water and is not turned on


Sounds like water control solenoid is stuck in the open position.
The hot and cold solenoids are located just inside where the hoses attach to the washer.

Water continues to fill into the washer drum on the spin cycle.


Hi

You could have a stuck solenoid valve
Try this: Set the water temp on cold. Turn on only the hot water.
Does hot water try and fill the drum?
If so then there is a problem with the hot solenoid.

Next set the water on hot. Turn on only the cold water. Does cold water try and fill the drum ?
If so then there is a problem with the cold solenoid.

The drum in the washer/dryer keeps filling up with water when the machine is turned off. We've only had the machine about 18 months


If you are inside the warranty time, don't do anything or break any seals. Instead report your dealer about the same. Else you can ask a company man or local professional to repair your units board.

Drum is filling with water after each wash


There is only 2 possibilities for the drum to fill with water after it has finished.
Firstly, if the empty pipe is connected to the sink outlet pipe, the water can syphon back into the washer if the pipe is too low, thereby slowly filling the washer when not in use.
Solution is to lift the outlet pipe higher.than the bottom of the sink.
The other reason is the inlet valve is not shutting off properly.
To prove if this is the case, turn the water off at the valve, if it is hot and cold fill, then turn the hot off only, and wait and see if water comes in over a period of time, if it does not then you need to replace the hot valve.
If water stills comes in with hot turned off, then you need to replace the cold valve.
If cold fill only , turn off cold and wait to see if any water comes in, if it does not, then replace cold valve.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Washer Dryer - drum is filled with water even when switched off and door can still open!


Try the valves inside the back where the water hoses connect to the machine they should default to the closed position when water is not required

Water keeps running.......


i assume washer never starts running if not suspect water level switch or connection hose also be sure small hose to switch is not plugged or mashed flat even a small hole in hose may cause it not to get pressure to tell switch drum is full ..if washer does start running suspect bad water valve may not be shutting off

Water in drum


It sounds like you have a faulty fill valve that is leaking by. The valve has an electric solenoid but also has a small diaphragm that needs to seat properly to keep the water supply from coming in. If the diaphragm is not seating correctly for whatever reason, water pressure alone can keep water filling into the wash tub. Even the smallest amount, over time can cause problems. One way to test the theory is to shut off the water supply before you go to bed. If the tub is still empty in the morning, more than likely you have a bad fill valve. Let me know if this helps.

Re EW1200i : drum keeps filling with water


is it overfilling? if so you have a problem with the pressure side of the system and it would need cleaning out.
