the water level switch (the knob that say low med. extra lg. ect) controls the water level, it probably isnt the trouble, but i suspect that the water valve (where the hoses attach)is sticking open to determine this,when it does flood unplug the machine if it continues to fill while unplugged the valve indeed is sticking
Hi just read your posting.Now are you using the auto filling mode or the traditional water level mode eg-- low med or high?Has your machine got an led screen?If so go to the options section and you can select water level, traditional wash,and water temp.Please reply on how you got on or for further assistance. Looking forward to your reply.
Are you putting clothes in first or as you fill the machine??? This is a normal capacity washer, so you need to be sure to fill with clothes first, I believe this will cure it. If that isn't your trouble, you may have a level switch that isn't working correctly. That would be easy enough to fix. Check on High, Med and Low levels and see how much water goes in, if it looks high on any of them, you can use that leveling screw on the level switch itself to regulate how high or low it goes. UNPLUG the machine when inside, so you don't shock yourself, Make your adjustment, then replug and try before you reassemble the machine. Unplug for that too, just to be safe. :) let me know how it works out for you
Sounds like your drain is laying on the floor, or your stand pipe is too low, or the drain hose is too far down in the stand pipe. The drain must be at least as hi as your water level in the machine at it's fullest level, otherwise it will just siphons out almost as quickly as it fills.
Hi, If you turn the water source valve on and water starts filling the machine even tho the machine is off, change the inlet valve. If you have to start the machine so water will fill but, the water does not shut off at the desired level, there is a problem with the water level switch. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
i assume washer never starts running if not suspect water level switch or connection hose also be sure small hose to switch is not plugged or mashed flat even a small hole in hose may cause it not to get pressure to tell switch drum is full ..if washer does start running suspect bad water valve may not be shutting off
there is a tube that connects to the water level switch (small med large ) load level, it connects to the outside tub of the washer, inspect it to makes sure that it does not have a hole or crack in it
are you gettting water into the machine woth the power cord unplugged then you have a water valve that is bad , if no water comes into the machine with it unplugged the water valve is ok
if the above two tests are negative then the water pressure switch is bad.
the water is draining back to the ocean. The drain hose was not emptied properly from its last use. Put the machine in spin cycle (about 5 minutes) only to spin out the water from the outer tub completely and retry washer. If still problem, then visual check drain hose that it still has a "rising" section higher in altitude than the water level of inner tub (when working properly) before it makes a U-turn downward to send back to the ocean. You can also test the drain hose by putting machine in fill mode and crimping off the hose (fold hose over) to simulate a good drain hose. At this test, you should not "feel" water running through the hose if successfully crimped.
