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.

Waterboss 93000 water softener


It most likely is due to a plugged eductor/injector assembly which pulls the salt brine out of the tank to regenerate softener. If it is plugged no brine will be pulled from salt tank during regen but it will keep filling the salt tank and eventually overflow with each cycle. Or there could be a leak in the valve causing the tank to overflow.
Here is the owners manual for your model.

Why does the Water valve keep running water when bowl is full?


Because the shut off point is above the overflow tube. You will need to either adjust the arm or bend the float end of the arm downward to make the arm end swing higher to reach the shut off point prior to water overflowing into the tube.

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.

Sounds like the water tank keeps filling


2 possibilities.1. The water level is set higher the the overflow tube. This will cause the water to run into the overflow continuously. You should be able to see this. 2. The large seal - bottom center of the tank - is leaking. This will cause the water level to slowly drop after a fill. The water tank will start to run again after flushing - BUT NOT CONTINUOUSLY. You should see if there is a small amount of water flowing from the rim to the bowl 15 seconds after the water has stopped running after a flush.

Have a fluid master valve--I believe it is a 883B--fills the toilet and appears to shut off but very slowly keeps filling. Never actually shuts off completely..Please Help!!


there are only 2 possibilities; 1 the tank seal is leaking into the bowl and the input valve runs to replace the water lost, or 2, the water inlet valve does not shut off totally and the water continues to flow into the bowl via the overflow tube in the tank.
If the water is running into the overflow tube, adjust / replace the input valve, if the water is not going into the overflow valve, clean / replace the flapper valve at the bottom of the tank.
Please let me know how you make out.

The fridge keeps leaking water underneath,the freezer part keeps iceing up down the bottom under the draws,the water is the main problem.


Water in the drain overflowing can be the reason for the water spilling,it can be the defrost overflow or the leak from the evaporator tubing's to the drain. So drain off and check perhaps more condensation is the result of the overflow.
The icing can be related to water formation from the food or leak from the evaporator, high frosting can blow the water inside the freezer.
So set the freezer temp a little lower so that the freezer shuts off than to make it run continuously.

Water keeps running into dishwasher causing overflow


I had a diswasher with thils problem several years ago. The problem was wiith the plastic float at the bottom. It had hardend greese buildup that kept the float from moving freely. Removing the float and cleanning fixed the problem.
