To confirm the water level switch the washer should also run because the water level switch thinks the washer is full.

My Whirlpool washer fills up but won't stop poring into the washer. Is this something that is repairable?


Your water level switch could be defective. This switch has a plastic 1/4 hose connected from your tub to the switch. (should be easy to find.) Make sure this hose is connected to your tub and switch and the line has no holes. It is easy to test the switch by disconnecting the line from the tub and while water is flowing into your washer, Blow into the line. The pressure will stop the water flow. If not, Bad level switch.

My estate whirlpool washer model# taws800jq1 water wont shut off when you start cycle


See this tubing:

11_10_2011_1_17_20_am.jpg
If this tubing gets sediment in it OR vibrates loose OR gets pinched from re-installing the cabinet OR if the tube gets a hole in it then the pressure won't build up as the water level rises and the water will not shut down. The component that tube is attached to it the water level switch. The likelihood of it being bad is slim. Most of the time sand and sediment gets into the tubing and simply blowing it out and reattaching the the tube to the switch fixes it. Be sure to pump out water after cleaning and re attaching the tube to the water level switch. Service manual and more

My washer wont fill with water what seems to be the problem


Hi

If the washer won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly. Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Washer wants to start at the Wash portion of the cycle, not the Fill portion


Hi this is a bad pressure switch, it is located in the control panel behind the knobs, its the switch that changes the water level, sometimes you can switch it back in forth real fast from small to large size load and it will start working. But it will eventually need replaced, that part usually runs around $30-50.00.

The washer is ovrtflowing with water. It does not stop


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.
