If it only overflows while the washer is running, check the pressure switch, or water level switch. The hose may have come loose, or could have a hole in it somewhere. Otherwise the switch may be stuck or may need to be replaced.

If it's overflowing when the washer is off (i.e. in the middle of the night when there is no laundry in it), then check the water valve.

Water will not turn off


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Water Inlet Valve If the washer is overflowing and power is shut off to the washer, the water inlet valve has failed. Replace it.
Pressure Switch If the washer is overflowing the pressure switch might be defective. The pressure switch is attached to a small tube which is attached to the outer wash tub. As the water level rises the air pressure in the tube increases, once the set water level is reached the pressure switch turns off power to the water inlet valve. Check to be sure the air tube to the pressure switch is clear before replacing the switch.

Low Water Pressure from House Supply If the washer is overflowing the water pressure to the water inlet valve might be too low. The water inlet valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to shut off properly. If the pressure is lower, the valve may not close fully when the power is shut off. This results in the valve leaking water into the washer and causing it to overflow.

Hi I keep getting an error message "F27" on my


F27 OVERFLOW CONDITION
If the overflow contact on the pressure switch is closed for more than 60 seconds, an Overflow Condition occurs. In an
overflow condition, the door remains locked and the drain pump runs constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the display is cleared. Turn off hot and cold water faucets and unplug the unit before servicing.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, water inlet value, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Check for drain pump failure.
6. Check the inlet valve for proper shut off.
7. Check the pressure switch for proper operation.

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

I have a top loading washing machine that no longer shuts the water off automatically when its filling up. whats going on? The water source to the washer has to be shut off because water will keep running...


Hello,
This is usually caused by sediments in your water supply getting into the fill valve, and preventing proper valve closure. My guess is the cold water supply is the culprit, as the sediments on the HOT supply generally settle in your water heater. The best solution is to replace the fill valve, as attempts at repairing the valve are generally futile. Replacement on most top loaders is fairly easy, the most difficult step is usually opening the unit to access the valve! Some are accessible at the rear of the machine.
Be sure that the filter screens are properly installed to prevent premature failure of your new valve assembly!

I hope this will solve your problem.
Sincerely, Bondo

Wate does not shut off


If your saying , when the machine is off , the water keeps running , you need to replace the water mixing valve pt. # 285805 . If your saying , when filling , the water does not cut off , then it could be the water level switch hose came off , which is located behind the control panel , and it just needs slid back on , OR , it could be a bad water level switch ( not likely though ) .

Machine does not stop filling with water. Will


If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.
