Sounds like a pressure switch problem not a timer. depending on the year and model they had alot of water level problems.

Water will not stop when I shut the washer off.


Possible that the inlet valve has failed and so does not cut off even after the power to the unit or the control unit has been disconnected.

The water runs in the tub but never stops. Even if you put it on spin to run the water out. The water never stops till it runs over the top of the tub. Is that something in the main control timer that is...


Hello,

Their are 2 possibilites causing it to overflow

1) the water inlet valve that the hoses from the house plumbing attach to is sticking open,when it sticks it will stick open regardless if thier is power to the machine or not,so to determine if that is the problem,start the washer and quickly unplug it,if the water continues to fill, that valve is sticking

2) the water level switch is defective,do the same as far as starting it,if the fill stops when power disconected it's the water level switch that is in need of replacement

Good luck, i hope this helps and if it does please give me a 4 thumbs up rating

The washer leaked water. It is about 8 yrs old and was working just fine til tonite. It didnt leak from the supply hoses or drain hose, I tipped it over and the outside of the drum was wet like it...


If it looks like the water overflowed then it could be a bad pressure switch the way to test it out is just fill it with water and set the washer on small load if it continues to put in water past the small load setting then you have a bad pressure switch

Just fills with water


if all it does is fills with water it may be a bad timer or the motor has gone bad. turn it to spin cycle and turn it on you can check for voltage at the motor . if you have voltage then you have a bad motor if you have no voltage then you have a bad timer on your washer . if it just fills and fills till it is about to overflow then you have a bad water level switch or tube . just a few things to check

HOTPOINT WASHER OVERFLOWS ON ALL CYCLES


Hi,
This is most likely a damaged pipe going to the low pressure sensor. This sensor determines when to turn water off by the pressure built up in a tube. If there is a damaged pipe - it wil overflow.

Turn off and disconnect machine, then remove access pannel to inspect all small bore pipes for damage. Check pressure valve for correct operation.

If it leaks at times other than filling, and water level seems ok, then it could be a damaged top or bottom seal that needs identifying and replacing.
If it leaks constantly it could equally be a damaged rubber pipe between drum and pump.
You really need to remove an access pannel - and just observe operation without putting your fingers in thereto spot it.

Kenmore 80 series washer doesn't stop filling up with water


Almost went and bought a switch until I widened by search for "kenmore washer 80 series overflow" and came up with this:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1206464-kenmore_80_series_overflow

Turns out that a couple weeks ago, I had a really unbalanced load that probably shook off the tubing. Anyhow, saved me a trip to the supply store AND cost. Thanks to the original poster!

Overflow


Hello,

If you unplug the machine and the water still comes in, you have a bad Water Inlet Valve. If when you turn the machine on at in overfills and you can stop the water by turning off the washer timer then you have one of a couple possible issues.

First, you pressure sensing tube could be clogged
Second, you just plain have a defective pressure sensing switch.

If you have anymore questions, feel free to comment back.

Thank you
