Question about Washing Machines
My washing machine isnt working properly. when i fill it up with water, it overflows and will not stop filling. Additionally, my knob doesn't turn any so it's like its not moving forward in the cycle. if i twist the dial manually it will just drain the water out and then refill again pretty much.
Well the part that tells the water to stop running in is the pressure switch if the water valve is working properly so disconnect the power and if the water continues to run in it is the water valve just replace it

Also check the tubing that connects from the wash tub to the load level control switch located under the top panel. I had the same problem and found that the hose had come off of the plastic nipple at the switch. This hose is pressurized when the tub is being filled and closes the water fill valve when the desired load level is reached (small, medium, large, etc..). I added a small hose clamp to keep it in place, It probably came off on a "out of balance" cycle with the vibration? If you find that it's still in place, check the line for cracks, splits etc.. from dry rotting allowing air to escape. If air escapes the pressure will never build therefore thinking it never reaches the desired level with never cutting the water valve off.
