You probably have a bad water valve that the fill hoses attach too at the back of the washer, if the solenoid is stuck open the water won't stop unless you shut it off at the wall.

Haier xqg65-11su Keeps filling with water


I don\'t know this particular model but on many machines there is a diaphragm switch operated by a tube.As the water level rises in the machine the water also rises in the tube and the resulting pressure in the trapped air pushes on the diaphragm.If yours is like this look for a clear plastic tube running from the front or rear of the outer drum to a circular switch about 10cm diameter towards the top of the machine.If the pipe is blocked with soap powder or scum or the pipe has rubbed allowing the trapped air to escape the machine will continue to fill.If this is not the case by removing the pipe at the bottom and blowing into it you should hear the diaphragm click on and off as you release the pressure.Also check if the point where the pipe comes out of the drum is clear by pushing a piece of wire through the outlet.Don\'t forget the usual safety measures and unplug the machine before you start.

Drum fill with water


If your machine outlet pipe is connected to the sink trap (many are these days) it could simply be that water from the sink is draining into the washer if it is connected like this ensure that where the outlet pipe leaves the the trap it goes up and does not run level or down if the water in the is dirty this is the problem failing this water vavles are passing water when the machine is off

My clothes are sopping wet when the wash has finished and there is water at the bottom of the drum. I can sort it by taking clothes out, bailing out the water and then re-spinning the clothes twice to get...


Sounds like a blocked outlet pipe. It may be possible that a small item of clothing i.e. sock or baby item may be stuck between the drums and occasionally moves over the outlet from the drum causing the blockage, hence only happens once in a blue moon. To see if you can see if there is something between the drums use a flashlight to help you look through the holes in the inner drum to see if there's a stray sock or something that can be moving around between the drums and covering the outlet. If there is then you will have to remove the outlet pipe from the bottom of the drum to try and remove the item that is causing the blockage, check all the way around the drum as it may be stuck to the inner drum at the time. If no item is found between drums then the blockage may be in the outlet pipes (both sides of the pump) or in the pump. Check these also as it may even be a small button or coin creating a blockage if it is moving around.

We moved the washing machine , then issues popped up. connection?


Possibly the belt was a bit loose in the first place and the move helped it move a bit closer to the edge causing it to slip off when machine was run.
The second part may have come to light only when machine was moved but would have eventually reared itself. There may have been a sock or something stuck between the drums and the movement has caused it to shift to the outlet pipe of the outer drum. This has probably now caused a blockage to the outlet and now not letting all the water out of the machine on any emptying cycle which will cause it to still have some soapy water left inside and keeping clothes wet. Check for a blockage in the outlet pipes.

Drum is filling with water after each wash


There is only 2 possibilities for the drum to fill with water after it has finished.
Firstly, if the empty pipe is connected to the sink outlet pipe, the water can syphon back into the washer if the pipe is too low, thereby slowly filling the washer when not in use.
Solution is to lift the outlet pipe higher.than the bottom of the sink.
The other reason is the inlet valve is not shutting off properly.
To prove if this is the case, turn the water off at the valve, if it is hot and cold fill, then turn the hot off only, and wait and see if water comes in over a period of time, if it does not then you need to replace the hot valve.
If water stills comes in with hot turned off, then you need to replace the cold valve.
If cold fill only , turn off cold and wait to see if any water comes in, if it does not, then replace cold valve.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint ultima washer dryer


ok lay the machine on its side the side with the soap draw under you will find the outlet pipe runing to the pump then another hose going from the pump to the bottom of the drum. if you disconnect the hose from the bottom of the drum you will find the filter remove this hose from the other end and clean the filter and hose with hot water once replaced check the hose in tight it may be tricky to replace stand up the machine and test using water only and an empty drum.

Water will not shut off


Usually there is a thin pipe from the bottom of the drum to a pressure switch at the top of the machine. As the machine fills the water goes up the pipe from the drum and increases the air pressure in the pipe to a point where it's enough to switch the switch inside. If the pipe gets blocked with washing powder it will not switch off and the machine will keep filling. The pipe is connected to a sort of flat round box with a few wires on it. If you can take the top or back off the machine you should see it and be able to clean the pipe out yourself.

Ariston margherita wont drain and selector knob keeps turning


Plug off the wall first. The spin normally does not work when the outlet filter is clogged; be prepared for a flood of water. If the filter is clean you should then check your pipe coming out from under the tub. Last check your outlet pump, could be blocked with something. Refit carefully, you might need a nice pair of pliers to get the grip clip on and off the pipes.
You can also drain water from the tub thru the rear hose in the wall. Keep bucket handy. The outlet pipe into the wall stands at a particular height, refit exactly to this height, about 3 feet from ground. Do not push the pipe too much down the stand pipe.
