    The washer overflowed last night. After testing it, we found that it was not able to know when to finish filling. I followed the instructions posted. I re-attached the hose to the sensor and it stops when full. Thank you for your info.

This is usually a symptom of a pressure switch malfunction. The pressure switch is located in the operator console behind the load (or water) level knob. It is cylindrical in shape and has an electrical connection and an air hose attached to it. In many cases, the only problem is that the air hose has come loose and fallen off the fitting on the pressure switch. You will need to open the console and inspect it. To open the console, it comes off in a few different ways depending on the year and model of the washer:

1. If you have removable end caps on the console, they simply pry off by lifting from the the back exposing a screw under either end. Remove the screws and the console lifts up.

2. If the end caps do not come off, place a putty knife in the front corner of either end of the console where it meets the washer top and push in while lifting up. This depresses a retaining clip and the console will lift up.

3. Some consoles have a screw located on either side in the back that you need to remove and it will then lift up.

Be careful when you lift the console. There are small plastic hinges holding it in place and they can break if you aren't careful. Place the console in its resting position by laying it over the back of the washer. The pressure switch will be easily accessible. Double check the hose like I previously stated and double check to make sure all the electrical connections are in place.

If you check the switch and find that everything is in place as it should be, you may have to replace the switch. Post back with your COMPLETE model number (located around the rim of the washer tub opening) and I can track down a part number for you.

I hope this helps.

HINT: If the hose did come loose and you reattach it, take a small zip tie and place it around the hose where it fits on the pressure switch. Make it snug, but not too tight (the fitting can crack). This provides enough resistance where the hose will not come off again.

many machine spin a full tub as they are pumping the water out

Washer works fine until it starts filling on the rinse cycle, then the water just flows out of the drain. Last night the water was running for 3 hours, before I realized it. The tub fills fine when it is...


Make sure the drain hose is not sealed to the drain pipe, and that the hose is not shoved into the drain allowing the end of the hose to reach the trap. That will prevent the machine from syphoning out the rinse water as it fills.

Rinse cycle doesn't work


Your cold water valve is clogged. Most likely needs to be replaced or at least cleaned.
