Sounds like a sensor problem to me. An engineer should be able to replace the part.

It's unlikely to be the tap that supplies the hose to the machine, but you might want to check that first just in case. Make sure it turns fully on and fully off. You'll need a bucket! If it doesn't turn fully off, you'll need a plumber rather than a washing machine engineer.

Fills, goes 4 minutes and fills, pauses, then fills, pauses then fills, over and over


Sounds like its syphoning out the water. If it was overfilling, you would have water everywhere, the machine would eventually flood. Check the drain hose. Make sure the end is higher than the water level in the machine and that there are no extensions running outside which have an end lower than the water level in the machine, it will start syphoning, usually after the first pump out.

Kenmore series 80 washing machine overfills, it will not start washing, it just fills and runs over


Hi, The first part to check is the inlet valve. If you shut the washer off, will the water stop? If the water continues when the power is off to the washer, change the inlet/mixer valve.
If the water stops filling when the power to thee washer is shut off, the water level switch needs checked.
Please let em know if either of these help so I can assist you further.

Dishwasher does not fill with water when started. Problem began slowly with dishes not rinsing completely. Overfill float appears to work properly. Water fills pipe leading to fill solenoid but does n


I am almost certain that your problem is the fill solenoid.

If it does not work, there will be no water entering your machine.

I would either remove it and test it or just replace it at this point.

Overfilling ice tray with water


Does the water eventually stop flowing? If not, your solenoid valve is sticking open and defective. If you also have ice and water through the door, this is a dual solenoid valve. If it does eventually stop, your ice maker could be sticking in fill mode. Either way this could be a potential for a flood. I would recommend replacing both.

When washer is in super wash cycle water will not stop causingthe tub to over fill running onto the floor.


It sounds like you are trying to use the largest water level setting. If this is correct you may have a pressure switch problem.

First turn the timer to spin and get all of the water out, that start a washer cycle with the water level set to the small or low setting and see if the washer fills to this level. if it stops at the low level great Now if it continues to fill and does stop you may need a pressure switch or the hose needs to be replaced that runs from the tub to the pressure switch.

Now set at the medium level and try again. does it stop or over fill?

If it over fills you probably need a pressure switch however before you purchase this, make sure the hose is in good condition one pin hole will cause your overfill condition.

Either you have a faulty water valve, which would either need to be fixed or cleaned, or you have constant power to the valve caused by a problem in the controller which does not allow the cycle to advance. If, as you say, it does not overfill, then apparently your water level control pressure switch is operating and causing the pump to turn on and drain as fast as it fills.
