My washer will not fill with water, the water will run until I stop it. This does not happen every time, but increasingly more.

    How do you "stop it"? Do you turn off the vavle at the wall or do you just turn off the michine with the timer knob?

I have a LAT9306AAE washer that wont stop filling with water and overflows with water


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in and the water won't stop when you unplug the washer then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.
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.

Washing machine won't stop filling


Hello Marty, there are only two possible reasons for your trouble.

If your washer is overfilling, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Water-level switch
Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Washer over fills with water


There is a pressure switch with a long thin hose or tube attached to it. It is inside the washer and can be located with the back or the top removed. As the water fills, the pressure in the hose increases and the switch activates at a determined pressure, shutting of the water valve. I have seen bad switches and pinched or clogged hoses..
