Hi just read your posting.1st turn off the taps to the machine and remove the 2 inlet hoses at the machine end.Now put these ends of the hoses into a bucket and turn the taps on a little bit to see if you are getting any water out of them.Make sure you note where the hot and cold hoses go back.Check the little filters where the hoses connected to the machine to see if they are blocked.If you have water coming out of the hoses and the filters are clear then refit your hoses to the machine and turn the taps on.Now try a hot fill then a cold fill.Now reply back and tell me how it went.Then I can help you rectify this fault on your machine.Looking forward to your reply.

My samsung top loader washing machine sw65v9w won't stop filling with water

If the water stops when you stop the cycle, then the pressure sensor is at fault. If you need to turn the water supply off to stop it, then the water inlet valve is at fault.

Hot water will not enter machine. Screen filter is clean. Cold is OK.

There's no hot water Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally. If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests: Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on. Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct. Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace it.

Top loader washing machine does not fill up

very simple, your drain hose is below 4 ft, your drain hose should go in the hole between the hot and cold water, if you dont see a hole then it is covered, you need to knock out the hole...

Water does not switch off automatically when full. It overflows. The machine will not run when the water is turned off at the tap.

If this a front loader machine, the water entry is a timed event. If a top loader, there is a water level switch located on the top of a tube which comes up from the bottom of the outer tub and is near the machine top. The switch is really a pressure switch, which requires no air leakage from the tube or switch to function (the rising water level in the tube generates the needed pressure). Open the machine top to watch what occurs when filling and manually check the operation of the switch.

Tub overflow

Remove the hose from the water level switch and blow air through it.
The water level switch air hose has a clog in it.

it may be a bad water valve or just a clogged screen. take off the cold water connection from the back of the washer and clean out the screen you see inside the plastic piece the hose fits on. do not take it out, clean it while it is still inside.
