Water filling while door is open

Water is filling up the tub even though the door to the washing machine is open. What is causing this to happen? How can I fix it?

    We have had the same problem. We came home to water all over the floor in our laundry room. I always leave the door cracked so when the tub filled with water it leaked out the door. There were no lights on the panel indicating the machine was on and it would not turn on to drain the water out. The repair man said "impossible", that we must have turned the machine on and then opened the door and that there was no way the machine would fill with water with the door open. This occurred while no one was home. My only explanation is that our house was struck by lightning about 18 months ago and that the control panel was damaged. We have heard that sometime it takes a while before you start seeing problems with control panels and senors.

    I started having the same problem last week, although not enough water to leak out on the floor. I went to load the washer after not using it for a couple of days and there was about 3 inches of water inside. I thought my 5 year old had been playing with the washer. I filled it full of laundry, hit start and it drained the water and washed the load as usual. We went out of town for the night and when we came back the washer had about an inch of water in the bottom. I haven't called it in for repair yet because my husband is going to hit the roof when he finds out we're going to have to pay for a repair on our 2 year old washing machine. Is anything built to last anymore?

Hello. my Lavamat 74500 update does not start the wash cycle. everythig is on, door locks but nothing happens.


sounds like a water fill problem to me, normally at start of cycle door locked, program set, start water solenoid opens and fills machine with water, once water reaches set level heater will come on and wash program will commence,
so if you have a restriction in the water supply/ water tap not turned on correctly, on blockage in water solenoid valve water flow to machine will be restricted causing a long delay before machine starts, things to try
1. make sure hose connection water valve is fully open
2.open soap draw to see / if you can hear water flowing into machine,
3 if its very slow you have a restriction in water supply
could be a twist in water supply hose, causing a restriction
all above is if machine is taking to long to fill with water,
good luck .

How do I fix a washing machine that doesn't fill with water, but spins and drains? Water enters the detergent holder, but doesn't seem to make it to the tub. Draining can be heard as well, even though


Hum for one a front load H.E washer should not be having very much suds as u claim it had. Are u aware the front loads are made to use very little soap and if u use to much soap hence alot of suds, ur SUDS SENSOR will act up and can shut down any wash cycle. a trick is to run just water and some vinagar trough a couple loads if u can get to wash at all. Another issue u may have is a plugged line somewhere. or loose unconnected water hose line hence the water on the ground effect. u may want to check ur flow line from the entry into the tub where the water at the moment I cant recall the name of the gadget but it can get clogged or damaged and hinder the water from entering the tub

Washer won't fill


Hi pollystepp.

Without knowing the make and model, a basic answer to this problem is that the fill switch has gone bad. If your machine proceeds to agitate and spin without water, the washing machine 'thinks' it has water in it and this happens when the fill switch is stuck open. Rarely, the tube that goes from the tub to the switch may be clogged which may cause the switch to remain open.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

My Kenmore Elite He4t front loading washer fills up with water when I'm not even washing clothes. I left some bed linens in the tub to be washed later in the week and when I opened the door to add some...


This condition is typically caused by faulty solenoid or solenoids at the water inlet valve. Unplug the machine, turn off the water, and remove the supply hoses. Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking for continuity. A lack of continuity will indicate a faulty solenoid and the inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Tub smells like mildew. Possible water still in tub but not visable. When tub is shaken hard by hand, slight sound of water sometimes. Still cleans well.


You will never get all of the water out of a washing machine using the pump

The only way to do it is to take the drain hose out of the standpipe remove all clips so that it lays flat on the floor and put it into a bucket

Even then there will still be a little bit left in.

Run two very hot programs witha good dose of washing soda placed in the drum before you fill it

Leave the door open when the machine has finished to allow it to dry off
