How to fix amana w10240534c washer wont fill?


check your water inlet valve. Check it for continuity with a multi meter it should show Ohms or a closed circuit. To test it when water is overflowing unplug the unit and see if it still overflows or continues to fill. no fill If it stops when unplugged. Then it is not a water inlet problem but an electrical signal problem going to ur water inlet valve. Possibly from the panel or board.

Washer continuously fills


Not sure if you mean that it fills all the time and overflows or you mean that it just always fills and never has enough water.
The first problem would refer to a faulty water level switch - need to replace.
The second would be that the washer drains as it fills - if the drain hose is lower than the washer, inspect the anti-siphon valve.

Washer keeps filling with water never shuts off overflows


Hello,

Their are 2 possibilites causing it to overflow

1) the water inlet valve that the hoses from the house plumbing attach to is sticking open,when it sticks it will stick open regardless if thier is power to the machine or not,so to determine if that is the problem,start the washer and quickly unplug it,if the water continues to fill, that valve is sticking.

2) the water level switch is defective,do the same as far as starting it,if the fill stops when power disconected it's the water level switch that is in need of replacement.

Good luck, i hope this helps

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.

What would cause the washer to overfill the tub?


If water is overflowing and you disconnect power to the machine. then:
A. It continues to fill: Replace water fill valve. (the part the fill hoses screw onto)
B. It stops filling: Most likely has a plugged tube from the tub to the water level switch.

Whirlpool Estate Washer will not stop filling.


There is a fill switch that is not being triggered. Find out where that is. The dog hair could be the culprit. This switch is but cutting the tank fill. God Bless John
