How do I stop the front loader (washer/dryer from flooding my rv?


If the washer is overflowing the pressure switch might be defective. The pressure switch is attached to a small tube which is attached to the outer wash tub. As the water level rises the air pressure in the tube increases, once the set water level is reached the pressure switch turns off power to the water inlet valve. Check to be sure the air tube to the pressure switch is clear before replacing the switch.
If the pressure switch is fine, check the water inlet valve for continuity on the solenoid coil by removing the top cover of the machine.

My top load washer takes very long to fill with good water pressure


Hi Miguel, I am happy to assist you!

I understand your washing machine is taking a long time to fill. Is the incoming water flow normal? If it is, does the fill water continue to enter your washer? If yes, disconnect power from your appliance. Did the water fill stop? If so, a service technician may need to check the pressure sensor or switch to determine if it needs replacement.

If your water flow is abnormal, double-check water faucets to ensure they are in the "on" position. If on, your incoming water pressure may be above 30 PSI and could need adjusting. Check for any kinked or blocked water hoses or clogged water screens. If you've cleared the water screen and/or unblocked any kinked water hoses, and the problem still persists, it could possibly be a water inlet valve assembly.

If you have checked all of the above, your washer may need a main control board replacement. I would recommend contacting a qualified service technician to further assist you in diagnosing this issue.

Good Morning Kellee - Based on the symptoms you are describing, here are a few troubleshooting tips that may help you get to the root cause:

· Is the incoming water flow normal? If it is, does the fill water continue to enter the washer? If yes, disconnect power from the unit. Did the water fill stop? If so, a service technician may need to check the pressure sensor or switch to determine if it needs replacement.

· If your water flow is abnormal, double-check water faucets to ensure they are in the "on" position. If on, your incoming water pressure may be above 30 PSI and could need adjusting. Check for any kinked or blocked water hoses or clogged water screens. If you've cleared the water screen and/or unblocked any kinked water hoses, and the problem still persists, it could possibly be a water inlet valve assembly.

· If you have checked all of the above, the unit may need a main control board replacement. I would recommend contacting a qualified service technician to further assist you in diagnosing this issue.

My Maytag Centennial Washer is a top loader. It washes fine, but will not spin out after the rinse cycle.


If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

The cold water pressure is very poor into our LG top loader washing machine. There are no blckages and the water comes out of the tap fine. The hot water is ok.


remove the hose from the water machine. there is a iron mesh that traps foreign objects from the water tap. Perhaps it is quite dirty.

Water fills drum (top loader) even when off


Your problem is a jammed water solenoid, If you take the top off the machine it is possible to remove and either strip it down to see if it is dirty or replace it. your washer hose usually connects directly to it.

You either have a defective pressure switch or water inlet valve. Start to fill the machine with warm water so that both solenoids on the water inlet valve (hot and cold) are activated. After about 30-60 seconds, push the timer knob in to stop water flow. If the water continues to flow, replace the water inlet valve. If this is the case, it may take a few times of starting and stopping water flow to allow solenoid to heat up and become symptomatic. If water flow stops abruptly each time knob is pushed in, you most likely have a defective pressure switch (water level switch).
