THE PROBLEM MOST LIKELY WILL BE WITH THE FILL CHAMBER, CHECK TO MAKE SURE THATS ITS NOT RESTRICTED,SOME TIME THEY REDUCE WITH LIME SCALE, GIVING A FALES READING THAT THE MACHINE IS FULL,THEN RESTARTS THE FILL PROGRAME AGAIN ONCE THE AIR PRESSURE REDUCES, THEREFORE OVER FILLING THE UNIT

Whirlpool thin twin lt7100xvn0 wont complete the fill cycle


sounds like a bad water pressure switch not to difficult to do and not to costly. if its defective it will continue to fill and overflow never going into wash cycle. ( u can check it by having it set to wash and removing the long clear plastic tube hose from the tub not the switch, and blow into it, or u can use another small tube and insert it into the pressure switch & blow into it. if it starts the wash cycle the diaphram in the switch is ok if it doesnt the switch is bad) and u may want to check ur inlet water valve as u may have a bad water inlet valve. which can also keep water flowing no matter what u do even when unplugged from wall. Have u ever noticed water in the tub for no reason like the next day? these can be checked with a multimeter.

Whirlpool dishwasher just keeps filling? help please


check on the floor of the dishwasher on front left side. There should be a round float that is the overflow cut off. \make sure that it will go up and down. This is what shuts off the water.

Dishwasher not filling


The water float switch, located on the inside bottom of the machine, may be stuck in the up(off) position keeping the water valve from functioning. This is a safety device that turns the water valve off when the machine fills in order to keep it from overflowing.

The water inlet solenoid mounted on the inlet valve under the bottom front may also be malfunctioning not allowing the water valve to open and fill the machine. If electricity is present at the solenoid terminals when the machine is in fill cycle, then check the solenoid coil to see if it is open(no continuity). Also, the timer may not be calling for water/ sending voltage to the inlet valve solenoid.

I would start by manually operating the water float valve a few time to see if that helps. You should hear a microswitch click each time the valve stem is moved up or down by the float. If not, check to see if voltage is getting to the float switch and the water inlet valve solenoid.

Most(if not all) machines have a safety cutoff switch which activates when the door is opened. That switch could also be malfunctioning not allowing voltage to the water inlet valve solenoid in fill cycle.

Washer keep filling with water and will not kick over to next cycle mode for wash or spinning cycle on cold water?


Hello, Assuming the washer doesn't keep filling to the point it is overflowing the tub, it sounds like you have a bad lid switch. If it is overflowing then you may need a pressure switch or more likely the pressure switch tube (surgical tube) is just clogged where it connects to the outer tub. You can go to - http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action - Type in your model number then select model search. You can get part breakdown and buy parts for most brands. Good Luck.

If by turning the wall switch off, and only then it stops comming in, it means the board is faulty. There is a leak in the electronic system allowing to solonoid to stay partially open. Strangs that it doesnt flow onto the floor.

Machine keeps overflowing during wash cycle


Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.

Water inlet valve

If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

MDB7600AW water level


I'm not sure if it is suppose to fill above the heating element. The heating element may just be there to dry the dishes instead of heating the water. Try using a pitcher to fill the unit manually to above the heating element. If water drips out from below the kick plate then you know the water is not suppose to go that high.

Let’s say the unit is indeed under filling.

Check for a deformed shaft on the water level float. Remove the kick plate and look for where the shaft of the float touches a micro switch. Often the shaft is bent sideways and only engaging the micro switch indirectly. Straighten by hand for a temporary fix or reinforce the shaft with aluminum tape and sewing needle. Keep the retrofit light weight to avoid problems with water overflow.

Indesit dishwasher overfilling


There are two ways that dishwashers generally fill. One is a float inside the tub, the second is a tube which fills with water, loops and goes to a pressure switch below the machine. That switch is usually about 1.5 inches in diameter, two wires and a small hose going to it. The float witch is found below the float in the motor area. With the float, sometimes they jam with too much old detergent or food goo. Clean out. Both can have the switch weld closed. Change the switch in either case. Since the unit is not filling with the power off, I'm going to guess the water solenoid is okay.
