Maytag oversize capacity plus washer wont stop filling with water even when I turn it off and un plug it


Ah thats usually a sign of a bad water inlet valve not to costly and not to difficult to repair somes a bad water pressure switch will also cause an overfill however when power is off that will stop the overflow so we know its ur inlet valve

Water wont stop filling up


If water keeps filling or dribbling into the machine with the power off it's the water inlet solenoid. If it overfills only during the cycle then it is the pressure switch or pressure switch tube.

Kenmore Front Load Washer filling up and giving LF warning


The FL error code means:
Flood Condition:
FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

This problem I see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.

Flashing FL


Hi

If you have error code FL it means flood condition i.e. FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed. With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

If its LF which means long fill i.e. when the water fill time exceeds ten minutes, the water valves are turned off and LF is flashed. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Hot water runs constantly - overfills


This is often, if not all the time, a faulty fill valve, the fill valve has mechanically stuck open and is not fully shutting off when not the washer is not in use. This normally will become worse and could flood over the top of the washer = big mess .... replace the fill valve. The fill valve is the part the hot and cold water hoses are attached to.

Water Dripping


you need a new fill valve, even if you ulplug the washer does it still drip? If yes then you do need a new fill valve. Just turn water off at the wall so your machine don't overfill.

Either you have a faulty water valve, which would either need to be fixed or cleaned, or you have constant power to the valve caused by a problem in the controller which does not allow the cycle to advance. If, as you say, it does not overfill, then apparently your water level control pressure switch is operating and causing the pump to turn on and drain as fast as it fills.

Washer continues to work even if water is not filled to top and even if i try to stop continues to spin


A defective pressure switch can interfere with the cycles that depend upon the switch to indicate when water has filled or emptied from the tub. It can also result in underfilling or overfilling of the tub. The switch routes current from the timer control to the temperature switch and the water inlet valve when the tub needs to be filled. Once full, the pressure switch cuts the current and reroutes it to the motor on the timer control to continue the cycle.
