My washer will fill with water, stop, drain some, stop, drain more, stop.... it is not running in a continous matter. For one load it is now taking it 7 hours and is still on rinsing cycle. What is the problem?

Re: Will not run continuously!
Either you have a faulty module or timer switch the dial used to set the wash program. If for any reason it ha been turned in the wrong direction your machie can behave exactly as you describe. Hope this helps.

Hello dko 1227 - If your washer will not stop filling up with water it could possibly have one of the following issues: a defective water inlet valve, air leak, holes or defective pressure switch. Does the water stop coming in? If no, then replace the water inlet valve. However if it does, then there are either holes or air leaks in the air bell or pressure switch hose, meaning tighten or replace the defective part or pressure switch will need replacing. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
Assuming the motor isn't running during fill the water is siphoning out and can be caused by a few things. · The drainpipe to your house may be too low and you either need to extend the pipe up above the top of the tub or run the drain hose from your washer up high. · Someone may have taped the drain hose from the washer to the drainpipe to your house to stop the water from backing up. To fix this either clean out the drainpipe to your house and remove the tape or install a siphon break. · If the drain hose from your washer is pushed down the drainpipe too far, this will also cause the same problem. To fix it just pull it out to within about 6 inches of the end of the drainpipe.
Check for a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm-like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the tube and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to start the appropriate cycle. Check for any obstructions in or damage to the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Hello Friend, You either have a bad water level/pressure switch or your water inlet valve is bad. If you unplug the washer from the wall and the water stops filling the washer then it's not the water inlet valve. If it only continues to fill when wash cycle is started then you will need to replace the water level/pressure switch behind control panel. This should solve your problem. Happy to help, Tim.
fill valve bad foreign matter (sand ,rust )has gotten through filter screen and settled in fill valve not allowing it to shut off completely..(hope i get this right) to acess remove screws on rear of console and lift console forward and up valve mounts underneath console may need to lift top up to acess lower fill hose connection ..remove plug on front corners of top remove phillips screw underneath top lifts up and tilts back
the hose may still be filled from last cycle.
try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.
