Possibly a leak in the tap that the supply hose is attached to. Check for leaks by detaching the hose from the tap. You will need a bucket!

Make sure the tap can by turned both fully on and fully off. If it leaks water when it is off, you will probably need to call a plumber.

Water large amounts on floor of shut off machine


To sufficiently inspect your washer to determine where to leak may be coming from, please review the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

If there is a huge gush of water coming from the washer as soon as you begin the fill cycle, this is commonly caused by a small air hose on the side of the washer drum that connects to the pressure switch. If this air hose comes loose,the water will pour from the wash tub as it begins to fill. This is an easy fix, if that is the only problem.

Another cause, can be a water inlet valve that is leaking by, or a pressure switch that does not keep the water supply shut off when not in use. This will cause the tub to fill up and spill over. The following link explains how to check for this as well:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3753262-front_load_washer_fills_when_not_in_use


Read through the information provided and let me know if you are having problems determining the cause of your problem. Please post back with your MODEL NUMBER so that I may be able to accurately determine how your washer is configured. I hope you find this information helpful.

I have a Frig. Gallery washer and it will fill up and drain but not spin. What could be wrong and how can I fix it??


All content © 2000 © 2009 Washerhelp
> Home / Repairs DIY washing machine advice (part 8) Washing machine sticks or stops mid-cycle repairs-sm.gif A very common fault on washing machines is when the program timer fails to complete the cycle and stops part way through. Many people blame the program timer for this but although it is a possible cause, there are many more likely causes for this fault. The program will stick if the heater isn't working, if the thermostat fails, if it can't fill up with cold water for the rinses, if it can't empty the water etc. There are too many possible causes of this fault to be able to give anything other than rudimentary advice. However, the common causes of a washing machine sticking that can easily be fixed are filling and emptying problems.
Check that the cold water supply is available to the washing machine, which is a common cause for sticking on rinses. If the washing machine appears to stop mid-cycle and isn't filling with water on rinses then see Washing machine won't fill with water (or no water goes into washing machine) before calling an engineer. If the washing machine can't drain the water out then it will stick on the rinses, or it will abort with an error code. If you can see water still inside the washing machine then check the following advice Washing machine won't empty water

What is the likely cause of the cold water continuing to fill up during a wash cycle (it doesn't shut off unless turned off at the source)?


there is a sensor at the back of the washing machine drum that senses the water level and stops filling when water reaches it sounds like it needs to be replaced i would consult a local professionial the sensor itself should'nt be too expensive either .Hope this is helpful

Fisher and Paykel washing machine fills and won't stop filling...


If the water stops when you shut if off at the wall you have a bad cold inlet valve, or the valve is getting a constant "open" command from the controller and thus the controller is faulty.

Will not wash it syphons water in the wash mode


The mixing water valve isn't shutting of letting it come in slowly. Replace valve. If not filling up may be caused , drain hos emaybe to low to ground. Should be at least two thirds up the washer.side.
