This is caused by a bad mixer valve. ( it is stuck in a open position ).
to fix this problem you will need to undue the hoses from the machine and remove the back panel of the washer, remove and replace the mixer valve. ( mixer valve is held in place by one small screw -- take note to what wires go to the hot side and what wires go to the cold side ).

My LG TROMM Hot water continually fills even after machine is turned off and unplugged. I have to shut off water supply to stop it.


Unplug the washer removing all electrical power from the machine. Turn the water back on and confirm that water is still entering the machine.

If the condition is true no power to washer and water enters machine it is very likely that the fill solenoid has failed.

this part is not that difficult to replace.

Water continues to flush through dispenser tray even when machine is unplugged & water valve off. Washer fills but I continually put it through drain cycle to avoid leaking.


You have a faulty water control valve that is not closing all the way. You can go on line and research the part with the model and serial numbers.

How to fix amana w10240534c washer wont fill?


check your water inlet valve. Check it for continuity with a multi meter it should show Ohms or a closed circuit. To test it when water is overflowing unplug the unit and see if it still overflows or continues to fill. no fill If it stops when unplugged. Then it is not a water inlet problem but an electrical signal problem going to ur water inlet valve. Possibly from the panel or board.

My washing machine is a hotpoint WF240. It started to overflow with water and spilling onto floor. We pulled it out from wall and found outgoing pump had fallen down, we put it back where it was supposed...


The machine will fill with it connected to the Electrical supply then stop if unplugged providing the fill valves/ water is okay....If it keeps on filling after unpluged then sounds like faulty fill valve,if on the other hand it fills without stopping when plugged in then its your air hose or Pressure switch at fault,Good luck

Help! My fisher paykel washing machine won't stop filling up!


If the water continues to fill even if unplugged the water valve is sticking and needs replaced. if removing power turns the water off the water level pressure switch is bad or there is something plugging the sensor tube somewhere.

Washer won't stop filling


if you can turn the washer off while it is still filling. and the water continues to enter the machine you have a bad inlet valve.
Do me a favor turn the washer to fill, with the washer still running unplug from the wall. If the water is still entering the unit you have a bad inlet valve

Nespresso D300 says "Fill Water" even after I have filled container.


Even if you fill the tank with water, the machine will display this message when it is empty inside (the pipes, heating element, etc.) You need to prime it: run some water through it by running the steamer/hot water wand.  That should take care of it.
