you know, it sounds not like a mechanical issue. Sounds like your control circuitry is off kilter..

SOURCE: Cold water inlet not opening

Check the filter on the cold water inlet first to make sure it is not blocked. Next check the cold water solanoid. Take it out. Clean it, let it dry.

SOURCE: Hoover Premier 710: which inlet valve to buy?

It appears your single inlet water valve has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

ZISS360DHSS water dispenser


Could be 2 possible problem areas for your problem. 1st there is a small switch inside the dispenser area that when you press for water the switch closes and sends power to the water inlet valve which then opens and lets water come out. That switch could be stuck and needs replaced. 2nd, the actual water inlet valve could be stuck open and if it is then it needs replaced. The inlet valve is the plastic valve the house water line connects up to on the refrigerator. It will usually have 4 wires plugged on to it. 2 of them are for water dispense and 2 are for water to the ice maker. Will also be 2 plastic tubes attached to it along with the house water line. Not hard to replace but make sure you don't get anything mixed up.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'I also disconnected the power to see if an inlet valve was stuck open but the water continued to run.'

You do have a stuck open valve, then. Sorry but it needs replacing ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I have a samsung sw52asp top loader ..it fills but wont switch off water and go into wash cycle it just overflows...help


  1. It sounds like your Water Inlet Control Valve may be getting stuck, or is stuck. There are 2 water inlet control valves, 1 for hot water and 1 for cold water. Does this problem happen when using the hot water only, or cold water only? You will need to replace the water inlet control valve for the side that is stuck open.
  2. If this problem happens with hot water and cold water, you may have a faulty control board, which will need to be replaced.

My Whirlpool Washer model LTE6234DQ5 continues to fill with water through ALL cycles.


There are two possible causes of the water not stopping. First is the water inlet valves stuck in the open position and second is the pressure switch not tripping when the correct water level is reached. Turn off or unplug the machine while it is filling and if the water doesn't stop, the water inlet valve/s is/are indeed stuck in the open position. Replacing the water inlet valve assembly should solve the problem.

But if the water stops, the problem is the pressure switch stuck in the empty position. Disconnect power then raise the console up and hinge it at the rear of the machine to access the pressure switch. It is the part with the small clear hose attached to it. Detach the hose and blow air down into it including the pressure switch itself. Replace the pressure switch if the problem persists.

It sounds like you're probably looking in the right place...it's possible that the inlet water valve is stuck open or simply defective. Turn off the water, turn off the power, remove the hoses and check the inlet valve. The valve could be stuck, have something in it. You may need to remove the inlet valve(s).

Tub completed cycle and wouldn't shut off the water


Is your machine a FAV6800A or FAV9800A? Can you confirm the Model Number and the first two digits Serial Number?

Does water flow into the machine with the 120VAC power plug pulled from the machine?

If it does you have a stuck water valve. If it doesn’t you could have a stuck pressure switch and I can walk you thru how to check in diag mode for that condition.

I know you are frustrated but with some basic troubleshooting we can determine if the issue is a stuck open Water Inlet Valve or a defective Pressure Switch. Because this board doesn’t ask for the Model Number or Serial Number we need to start there.

Here is where the Model and Serial number info is located on the back of your machine.
