My Cabrio no longer adjusts water level according to load size. It fills to the max each time. How to fix?


problem most probably in clogged pressure hose leading to pressure switch or bad pressure/level switch itself.  you can try cleaning the hose by simply blowing into it after disconnecting it from the pressure switch.  a simple fix but if clogged, it usually works.

Water level comes all the way to the top of the washer even when designating small load the washer fills all the way to the top and sometimes spills out


Your water level pressure switch is sticking.
You will have to open the control console to remove the switch and replace it with a new pressure switch.

LSE7806A stack: the wash fills to the water level/load size selected. it starts to agitate then stops and begins to fill with water again which causes overflow, help please


Your fill sensor is leaking and allowing air pressure from the clear tube to seep out. First make sure your clear tube from the tub to the water level valve is firmly connected. If it is then you may need to get a new water level adjuster switch.

Water continues to fill after it should have


first does it over flow.if not pull your drain hose up from the drain till it is aleast the same level as the back of the waher control panel.
If the Drain hose is to far down in the pipe this will cause the water to drain out by gravity.the other least likely problem is a bad fill pressure switch.

Ultimate Care II - water doesn't stop at the fill line, keeps filling to overflow and will not agitate


If the washer overfills, it may be something as simple as a detached or broken air hose on the pressure switch. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r762094-washer_overflows

The pressure switch on top loaders is located behind the load level selector knob on the operator console. The pressure switch on front loaders will be located inside the cabinet, usually mounted along the back interior wall. In the case of certain Maytag front loaders, the pressure switch is actually located under the tub. The principles of operation on all of them is the same, though. They all have an electrical connection and an air hose that detects the pressure from the tub as the water level rises.

If the pressure switch is not able to detect the water level properly, it will not shut off and the washer will never begin the wash cycle. Instead, you get a tub overflowing on your laundry room floor.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Another source of an overflow could be the water inlet valve. This is usually a slow fill fill that you find when the washer is sitting idle over night. A quick test to determine the source of the problem is to unplug the washer. If the water stops - pressure switch. If the water continues to fill - water inlet valve.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Washer won't stop filling with water.


There is a pressure switch with a tube to the water drain. The switch may be faulty or needs adjustment. The tube may be blocked or disconnected.

Washing tub overflows.


your water level switch is operated by air pressure in a line that comes from the bottom of the drum up the back and into where the timer and water level selector are it can be adjusted but if you don't know how you'll have to have someone fix it for ya

Waher wont stop filling


If you had the unit apart, It is possible as well as Lumpy816 correct answers, for a surge in the pressure sensing line to stretch the tiny spring inside the level sensing body.
if replacing the hose does not rectify the problem
Before replacing the pressure switch there are more tests of function
Blow any water out of the air tube, it should be empty when the washer is empty, water remaining in the tube messes up the pressure sensing(usually makes water level lower so doubt this is the fault)
Kenmore pressure switches are adjustable, the adjustment is hidden.
An internal spring stretches over time and does not react properly.
to test whether just the adjustment is required,

  1. remove the water level knob from the front side of console
  2. depress the lock tab at the right side of water level sensor body where it contacts the back side of the console and rotate counter clockwise 45degrees
  3. withdraw water level sensor body
  4. adjacent to shaft for the knob is 1/8inch bolt head, turn clockwise to raise, counter clockwise to lower water level.
  5. washer can be operated with the console open and the level body removed
  6. test, adjust, test adjust.
  7. if no effect replace water level sensor body

Whirlpool washer


I'm assuming you have a top load Whirlpool washer with buttons and knobs, instead of electronic controls.
There are some things that will cause a washer to overfill. The only one that will cause it to underfill is the pressure switch (water level switch.)
Some older machines (15 yrs+) have a ***** on the back of the pressure switch to adjust for the fullest load. If that ***** has moved, that would explain the lower levels. If the pressure switch is plastic (nearly all newer models,) the switch is not adjustable and should be replaced.
