Most probably cause is water level/pressure switch or h hose.  either needs to be replaced or hose needs cleaning or came disconnected..

Roper washing machine does not fill for rinse cycle. Goes directly to rinse agitate without water.


Without Model number I am only guessing but I suspect you have a blocked sensing tube that travels from the Level selector switch to the side of the tub somewhere. It is possible for this plastic tube to become partially clogged and not allow trapped air to vent when tub is drained of water. Usually this problem manifests itself as an overflow of the tub. Check the full length of this clear hose and see if the end nearest the tub looks like it may have debris or dirty detergent clogging it.

This hose is pushed onto a nipple mounted to a reservoir on the side of the tub. Push a thin copper wire 4-5 inches into the those after removing from nipple and also down into the nipple an inch or two before reinstalling the hose to the nipple. You MIGHT even blow into the hose while you have it off and you SHOULD hear a clicking sound coming from the level selector switch body.

Good Luck. Come back with Model number under lid if that doesn't help.

I HAVE A MAYTAG PERFORMA WASHER MODEL#pav3240. the washer continues to fill during rinse cycle and overflows the top. If i turn to spin cycle water drains out and machine goes through cycles. it seems like...


Clean out the water-level switch air dome tube AND the the connection to the tub where the tube connects. It may well be full of gunk and not allowing the water level switch to react quickly enough.

Washer will not stop filling and overflows.


A possibility is the pressure switch that senses water level is bad or the tube that connects it to the outer tub is split or loose and leaking air. If this is a timed-fill rather than a level-sensed fill, the timer may be in trouble. The washer top needs to be raised up to look for the level switch.
Remove the agitator and watch the plastic hub at the top of the shaft to see if it moves when the washer is set to wash. If it does, remove the plastic hub and see if it is cracked or the interior splines have been torn--if so, replace the hub.

Washing machine is overflowing in the rinse cycle


the front panel comes off,i think there is 2 screws on the front bottom,if not there should be spring clips in the top front seam on on each side,check the clear hose going to the tub,make sure nothing is in it and it is on tight,check the other side of the hose is behind the head panel,do the same there,if they both go good then you have a bad water level switch,let me know

Kenmore washer overflows during rinse cycle.


SOME OF THESE MACHINES HAVE TWO PRESSURE SWITCHES IN THEM, ONE FOR THE MAIN WASH WATER LEVEL AND ONE FOR THE RINSE WATER LEVEL. CHECK FOR A PLUGGED AIR PRESSURE HOSE FIRST AND THEN CHECK THE PRESSURE SWITCHES.

Washer overflows on any water level selection


check the pressure tube from the tub to the water level switch for a hole or crack in the tube, if none found replace the water level switch
