Hi I had just bought a used washer and as soon as I turned it on the water over flowed through the top as if the switch that tells it its full is out and the water just keeps flowing and flowing! I don't know what to do or how to fix it! will it be easy to do it myself or do I hire a professional? I am really low on funds being I live in Hawaii and everything is priced for millionares. Please help me!!!!MAHALOOOOO

Re: hi there washer GurU!
The water pressure switch hose may have fallen off. To access it REMOVE POWER, lift the console by one of three ways. 1. Look in the back of the console, in each corner there will be a screw, unscrew until the console can be pushed forward. OR 2. The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw. OR 3. insert a putty knife under each corner, push to release a latch.
The switch will be on the left (water level control) there should be a clear rubber hose connected to a nipple on the switch.

for using FixYa. Overfilling in your washer occurs mainly due to two things:
water inlet valve going bad and/or the water level switch. If the water inlet
valve has gone bad it won't be able to shut off even when the electricity has
been turned off. If the issue is with the water level switch then it won't tell
the water to shut off and the machine will overflow as this switch is to sense
the water level in the clothes tub. However, with that being said it seems that
you'll need to replace the water inlet valve. Please rate the solution if the
issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
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—
the delicates and heavy soil keys together for 3 seconds.
are in the service mode.
press wrinkle free key, cold water should start entering.
press the cotton sturdy and hot water should flow.
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
The error indicates that there is no water detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected..If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
If there is no water in the unit: 1. Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way. 2. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
3. Verify inlet valve operation
If there is water in the unit: 1. Verify Drain pump operation 2. Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch
Verify there is not a siphon problem
Verify wire harness connections to:Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
hi thanks for the question do you shut the water off with timer do you unplug to stop the water if the only to stop the water is to turn taps off replace the water valve also check the small plastic tube that goes to the water control switch it will get lint in that tube and cause the same problem remove small tube and clean thanks the appliance doc
The most common source is a problem with your pressure switch. First open the console ( where all of your dials and knobs are). This is done by removing the 2 phillips screws on the back of the console where it meets the top of the washer. Pull the botom of the console towards you and then rotate it up. The pressure switch is located behind the water level knob. Verify the clear tube is securely pushed on to it. If it is secure, you probably have a bad pressure switch. This can be ordered on line or picked up from a local appliance parts store.
We just bought a brand new washer and had the same thing just happen to us. Found out after taking the lid off that the top had pinched down on the mechanism that turns and allows the water to flow in. We were stacking out laundry baskets on top of the washer which did this. After taking the top lid off and touch it it began to move and is working properly now.
Have you tried this?
Hope it helps someone out there in the future if not you now.
