The problem you describe is commonly attributed to either a leaking water inlet valve, or a pressure switch malfunction. The following link explains how to diagnose and repair each problem yourself:

Whirlpool LSR8433KQ keeps filling with water and overflows. What can I do?


Pressure switch W10339229 or inlet valve may be stuck. If the water shuts off when you push in the timer knob to stop the machine, then water valve is ok. Try a different water level setting.

Washer keep filling with water and will not kick over to next cycle mode for wash or spinning cycle on cold water?


Hello, Assuming the washer doesn't keep filling to the point it is overflowing the tub, it sounds like you have a bad lid switch. If it is overflowing then you may need a pressure switch or more likely the pressure switch tube (surgical tube) is just clogged where it connects to the outer tub. You can go to - http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action - Type in your model number then select model search. You can get part breakdown and buy parts for most brands. Good Luck.

Water Overflow


hi there,

i would recommend checking the water level switch or lid switch and also the cable leading to it. that is what sends a signal to the machine control to stop filling with water.
