Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Overfilling in your washer occurs mainly due to two things: water inlet valve going bad and/or the water level switch. If the water inlet valve has gone bad it won’t be able to shut off even when the electricity has been turned off. If the issue is with the water level switch then it won’t tell the water to shut off and the machine will overflow as this switch is to sense the water level in the clothes tub. However, with that being said it seems that you’ll need to replace the water inlet valve. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

How to fix amana w10240534c washer wont fill?


check your water inlet valve. Check it for continuity with a multi meter it should show Ohms or a closed circuit. To test it when water is overflowing unplug the unit and see if it still overflows or continues to fill. no fill If it stops when unplugged. Then it is not a water inlet problem but an electrical signal problem going to ur water inlet valve. Possibly from the panel or board.

Myn washer always overflowes as it filling it wont


This is usually the pressure switch. Also you could check the water inlet valve if water is still flowing in the machine after it stops. There are free videos on testing these components at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html

Fills up with water and wont stop


if it still fills , with power off, the valve is letting by water and has become faulty,if water stops with power off,check for smudged powder at the lower part of the pressure switch pipe giving a false read to pressure switch,other than that the pressure switch has become faulty,look at the pressure switch pipe first for blockage,hope this helps

Fills up with water and wont stop


Bad Preasure valve comes to mind first and formost it acts like a level sensor balanceing the size indicated for fill.

My GE washer wont stop filling with water or go to the wash cycle. my GE top load washer water will not stop and leaks out, overflows. model #GCXRPO9ODAWW.


You have a problem with the water level switch.  It is located in the base of the machine below the tub.  Replace it and you'll be fine.

Machine wont stop filling with water, it just overflows. Machine is an Asko w6551 front loader


Same thing happened to my ASKO W600.  Sounds like the water inlet valve is blocked or broken so therefore can't stop the flow of water coming into machine.  Check it out and replace if necessary.
