The water won't shut off in my Neptune

I saw water flowing from the laundry room into the kithchen. the problem was the washer was running through it's cycle but the water didn't stop filling and the tub was over flowing.
I wanted to see if anyone ran into this before and where the problem might be before I call some one out.

Davedun: Take a look at the [water load or water level] switch from the inside & u may see a rubber tube coming out and going to the bottom of the washer tub.The rubber tube should be connected to a VACUUM switch.This switch works by pressure from the weight of the tub when it is being filled up with water.When u set the water level switch on a "lite load" ,as the tub is being filled the diaphragm is pushed down causing a vacuum to pull down another switch which causes the water to stop, causing your machine to start washing, rinsing, etc. This vacuum switch could be of many configurations\shapes\sizes & will almost always be at the bottom of the tub to measure the weight of water going in.
The key is a rubber (clear-see through, or black) coming from the top of the control panel going to the switch.
2nd. electronics sensors on the side of the inner tub ( that catches the water ) to measure water weight. Hard to find, because they could look like anything. Even I have trouble finding them!!
P.S. TURN THE POWER OFF AND UNPLUG !!!!
P.S.S. get back to me if u need some more help.

Error code NF? what does that mean?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error NF means No Fill. The washer has tried to fill but was unsuccessful. NF indicates No Flow. There is something that is interrupting the inbound flow of water to the washer, either hot or cold. Sometimes this happens when water service in the area is interrupted, creating an air pocket that causing the water valve not to sense water.

Try running the diagnostic test by—
  • Press the delicates and heavy soil keys together for 3 seconds.
  • You are in the service mode.
  • Now, press wrinkle free key, cold water should start entering.
  • Then, press the cotton sturdy and hot water should flow.
  • To exit the test mode, either unplug the machine or press the delicate and heavy soil again for 3 seconds.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

I am trying to hook my washer up to a laundry room valve, but it keeps leaking and giving a "NF" code... Is the valve faulty or does my washer need a new hose to hook up to a brand new home's valve?

Won't shut off machine turns off after a few seconds


You may have a burnt motor. This is usually caused by a clog in the pump. Sometimes small items such as socks find its way to the pump. It could also be the timer itself. If there is a burning smell when that happend it is probably the motor.

Water not shutting off to begin wash cycle flooded room


Probably one of the water cut off solenoids not shutting off.
Do you use both hot AND cold water?
Try using only cold water first. If that works, maybe hot water solenoid is faulty.
Next, connect cold water to the HOT inlet, and try it again. This means you have now tried each of the solenoids, and maybe identified which one is faulty (assuming thats the problem!). If water wont cut off after trying this, the problem will be with whatever level sensing device it has, but I am not familiar with the model you have, so cant help there. Good luck.
