It sounds like you have a siphoning problem. Double check to make sure you don't have the drain hose shoved down in the standpipe too far. 4 to 6 inches is sufficient enough when placing your drain hose into the standpipe. There needs to be an air gap in order for the washer to drain properly and to prevent the water from continually siphoning from the wash tub. DO NOT seal the top of the standpipe, either. Some people will do this thinking that it will help prevent overflows and/or get rid of any drain odors. It can actually cause problems. The standpipe should also be 2 inches in diameter, be a minimum of 34” from the floor, and should not exceed 72 inches in height. Post back if this is not the case and I will try to lead you in the right direction. I do hope this solves your problem.

SOURCE: Filling With Water

This is probably a control board failure, which should be replaced by someone familiar with them.
If you are handy, you can do it yourself.
If you need assistance, let me know.

SOURCE: kenmore 110-20932-994 overfills with water (keeps fillilng)

for your model you have a water level control switch which does have a tube and it operates on air pressure from the weight of the water in the tub. when the air pressure in that tube reaches it's limit whether it be small med large load the switch tells your water valves to shut off. yours is not doing this. By removing the back you can see this tube. follow it up into the control panel and replace it or maybe it even needs adjusted. Either way the problem you have is with this switch.

SOURCE: water won't stop filling washing machine.

Hi, Will the water shut off if you turn the timer off or unplug the washer?
If it shuts off when power is turned off to the washer, you need to look into the water level switch. If turning off power to the washer will not stop the water, you need to change the inlet valve.
Please let me know so I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

SOURCE: Whirlpool heavy duty super capacity plus machine slow to fill.

This problem is commonly attributed to a water inlet valve that has become clogged with sediment or calcium deposits over time. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, this is a common problem. You can remove the valve and attempt to clean it by soaking it in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and water, or you can simply replace it all together. If you're going to go the route of removing the valve, it makes better sense to replace it, rather possibly having to repeat the steps again if cleaning the valve doesn't work. The following link explains how to access and replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575881-replacing_water_inlet_valve_on_whirlpool

Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

I have found these sites to be reputable and provide great service. Prices differ between them, so shop and compare. If you do not wish to order parts on line, look up the part numbers on the Sears site and check with your nearest appliance parts retailer. These is a common part that may be commonly found in their in-store inventory. The average cost is about $30 - $35.

If you DO wish to attempt to clean the valve to save some money, submerge the valve in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and hot water for about 30 minutes and flush with clean water. DO NOT submerge the electrical connections.

You may also try any number of calcium, lime and scale removers on the market. CLR comes to mind as a good product, but use in a well ventilated area. It has some very strong fumes.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: I have an E02 Code

Hi

E02 is a drain error, if the drain pump assembly has already been checked and you believe that the drain pump is fine then the issue can be with either motor relay or the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Doesn't fill


Possible that the water level sensor is faulty as it tends to indicate before the level has reached thereby starting the rinse cycle.
Usually this can be due to faulty level settings or fault in the pressure switch as it can be acting too fast. It will be best to clean the inlet valve and check the flow , test the water level sensor and see if this works by blowing into the diaphragm.

Water won't stop filling


If the water still flows in when the machine is off the inlet solenoid is faulty, if when you push start it fills and keeps filling then the problem will be with either the electronics or the pressure switch.
You really need to get someone who has experience with whirlpool machines to look at it for you.

Water doesnt stop fillinG in panasonic NA F60A6 WASHING MACHINE


Fyi. All new washing maching already tested on their functionality and features but not test run with water intake and drain function. I would like to share My experience last time with this model. The water outlet valve will release by motor when you set to drain mode.it suppose manage to retract back by spring when drain process finish or afte small you change to wash mode.
Take a look on the spring movement.normally it not properly hold valve switch hence the retracted spring not block the valve to stop water drain. Just rectify the alignment of the valve swich which directly connected to the retractable spring.

This should be a problem with the fill valve.

They are usually not very expensive.

Find your model and serial number for your machine and call an appliance parts store.

They should be able to give you a price or you can find one online.

Bosch continues to fill when rinsing even when the machine is off


The inlet valve is stuck open most commonly , you can check this by taking the wires off the valve and then turn everything back on , if the water is still flowing replace the inlet valve.
