There is a water level pressure control and hose and either one could be bad.  the hose can become clogged  or the pressure switch could have gone bad.

Testimonial: "You nailed the problem area. The real problem was that the hose somehow disconnected from the water pressure switch. Quick fix and all is well now."

My idesit IWB5113 just keeps filling after starting the wash cycle, normal it inject some water then starts washing, my machine just keeps filling and doesn't seem to start the wash cycle, please help


It is possible that the water level sensor has failed and so does not detect to stop the inlet valve from filling.You can remove and check this level sensor normally it can be a damaged diaphragm and replace the same so that the program proceeds to the next stage to start the machinetips to see working of the machine;http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1392/how-a-washing-machine-works.html

Hi, i've taken the top and sides off my Bosch dish washer sgs45e02gbas it has not been working. the problem is ....when you switch it on is there is a pumping/throbing noise but doesn't continue...


Hello Phillip,

The reason only the pump runs anytime its powered up is because the flood detector has detected water in the base of the dishwasher and until that water is gone only the pump will run.That flood detector is (when looking at it from the front) is in the left front corner,its a styrofoam disc with a rod in the center of it and has floated up activating the flood switch on the letf side wall where the water enters the tub (can be seen on the left side with side panel removed) if thier is no water in the base frame perhaps some foreign object has wedged itself under the sytrofoam disc holding it up. Until the water is out of the base frame only the pump will run as long as the flood switch is tripped.

Possible things that will make water be in the base frame are,
oversuds from too much detergent
a leak of any component or hose
a defective water level switch allowing it to overfill

My kenmore keeps filling up with water and won't go into the agitate cycle


If it tries to flood you out. Open bottom cabinet and look for a clear plastic tube. It should be connected to a pressure switch on the bottom. It could have slipped loose. It will not agitate or stop water from going in until this is fixed. Just cut off bad spot and reconnect.

My laundry room flooded when I ran a load of clothes in my kenmore he2 plus washing machine


Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.



If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

First became aware there was a problem when machine overfilled resulting inj flooding,cold water fill would stop when i turned on a tap ,suspected water pessure switch.new water pressure switch fitted...


If it works O.K. in a different wash cycle, then the timer could well be the issue.
Using that last cycle you described, will it perform a complete normal cycle ???

Won't stop filling. When I go through the cycles it continues to fill until I reach the final spin cycle then it will start draining and spin out.


Two common problems for this simptom:

If water stops filling when you disconnect the washer:
Change the pressure switch.
If water keeps coming in after you disconnect the washer:
Change the water valve.

GOOD LUCK MY FRIEND

Washer filles with water but wont change cycles


start filling the washer on the warm cycle,turn washer off,if the water keeps filling then you have a bad water inlet valve,if it turns off then you have a loose water level hose or the water level switch is bad-mike

Water overflow


Are you on a well? Often people with a lot of sediment in water get sick of the screens in water valve plugging up so they remove them. NEVER remove these screens. If any sediment gets into valve it can hold it open causing flooding. If you unplug unit and water still comes in you must replace valve.
