Water does not stop filling with water


The possibility is faulty water inlet valve.The valve lets the water to enter the machine.But if this valve is got weak/faulty then it will not stop the water from entering.If the water fill vale is checked ok then other possibility is faulty water fill valve switch.The switch detects the required water in the washing machine and shuts the fill valve off,but if the switch is faulty then it will not shut the water fill valve off and this will not stop the water from filling and this overfills the water.So most cases the water fill valve is faulty and it has to be replaced.But if the fill valve is checked ok then other possibility is faulty water fill valve switch. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. To get required parts ,you can get it from www.repairclinic.com . Keep updated if any more queries.Thanks.

My kemore 80 series washer will not fill up


Check to see if there's good water volume coming through the hoses attached to the washing machine. If there is, check to see if the screens inside the water-inlet valve are clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve.
------------------------
The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

Washing maching not filling with water


The problem is most likely the water fill sensor switch. If it is telling the machine that it is full, it will go right to agitate.

A couple of tips from readers (Thankx!! ):
~ If you have a loose hose on the water level control or tank end, use a plastic wire tie to help hold the hose tighter and make a tight fit.
~ The water level tube (tube that runs from the square box), access panel on the outer drum where the bleach tube also ends) from the pressure sensor switch (front panel) can become clogged.  Or the two holes from the outer tub into this square box panel on the outside of the outer tub can become clogged. Either clog, I am told by my help repair guy can cause the sensor to think that there is still too much water in the tub and so will not allow motor to activate spin.
~ If the water level control contact is bad, it may also stop the filling ok, but not tell the washer to start agitating.
