Water fill is not accurate sounds like water level switch. Would this also cause the rinse cycle to not fill?

Yes, the water level switch is likely faulty and not calling for water when it needs to. Replace the water level switch and blow backwards through the hose to be sure it is clear.

Roper washing machine does not fill for rinse cycle. Goes directly to rinse agitate without water.


Without Model number I am only guessing but I suspect you have a blocked sensing tube that travels from the Level selector switch to the side of the tub somewhere. It is possible for this plastic tube to become partially clogged and not allow trapped air to vent when tub is drained of water. Usually this problem manifests itself as an overflow of the tub. Check the full length of this clear hose and see if the end nearest the tub looks like it may have debris or dirty detergent clogging it.

This hose is pushed onto a nipple mounted to a reservoir on the side of the tub. Push a thin copper wire 4-5 inches into the those after removing from nipple and also down into the nipple an inch or two before reinstalling the hose to the nipple. You MIGHT even blow into the hose while you have it off and you SHOULD hear a clicking sound coming from the level selector switch body.

Good Luck. Come back with Model number under lid if that doesn't help.

Hi John,

This sounds like a misadjusted water level sensor. This is a commercial dishwasher but the principles are the same. I would check the water level sensor to make sure that there is no debris under it or a leveling sensor bent causing the machine to think it is at the proper water level to begin washing when it is not. This may be a mechanical lever float type switch or an actual electronic sensor that will detect where the water level is. Most household DW's will have the mechanical float switch that will float with the water level and shut off the fill solenoid when the proper level is reached. You are having to defeat this process by holding the button in to override either a faulty sensor (replace it) or a misadjusted float switch. These would be the too most likely causes of this problem. I hope this helps!

Hotpoint hswp1000m washer cycle fills with water for large capacity but when it goes to rinse it won't fill anymore than low capacity of water?


It can be due to a faulty water level sensor which evidently is a pressure switch. If the diaphragm is damaged it will require a larger water level to achieve the said pressure to shut the inlet valve in all the cycles.

Doesn't fill


Possible that the water level sensor is faulty as it tends to indicate before the level has reached thereby starting the rinse cycle.
Usually this can be due to faulty level settings or fault in the pressure switch as it can be acting too fast. It will be best to clean the inlet valve and check the flow , test the water level sensor and see if this works by blowing into the diaphragm.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

There is a water level pressure switch inside the top panel that has 3 wires on it and a vacuum line. That pressure switch controls the water inlet valve functions via the timer.
If by chance the pressure sensing line is getting hydraulically locked with water due to some form of obstruction it can cause the symptom you describe.

This pressure switch also controls the start of the spin once the water level has dropped (prevents the wash tub from being a water brake and damaging the motor clutch)

If the water level pressure switch is working normally then the only thing left is the timer.

You can do your own testing of the water level presure switch with an external vacuum hose (3 feet in length) connected in place of the machine hose. (DO NOT drop the machine hose when you disconnect it!)

1. place timer on wash and start filling. LID CLOSED
a. Force air orally into the external line
1) Result fill stops agitation begins

2. place timer in spin LID CLOSED and force air into external line until the pressure switch clicks.
a. START SPIN CYCLE NOW and listen for water pump out
b. release pressure on external air line
1) result tub starts spinning

If it passes the above tests your looking at a timer problem causing your no rinse situation.

Thanks for using FixYa!

This sounds like a defective water level switch. You don't say what model, but if you changed the water valves yourself, make sure the rubber hose going to the water level switch is not pinched. That can do the same thing you describe. If this helps, please rate my answer. Thank you.

Kenmore top load washer will not fill on rinse cycle


Hi, It does sound like the contacts in the water level switch are sticking. This switch is activated by presure not vaccum. You can try and bow into the hose leading to the level switch and see if it has any restriction but, it is more likely the level switch is going bad.
Do you have any problem on the initial starting of you wash cycle?
Let me know if this helps at all or I can answer any more questions.

Thanks

Kenmore washer overflows during rinse cycle.


SOME OF THESE MACHINES HAVE TWO PRESSURE SWITCHES IN THEM, ONE FOR THE MAIN WASH WATER LEVEL AND ONE FOR THE RINSE WATER LEVEL. CHECK FOR A PLUGGED AIR PRESSURE HOSE FIRST AND THEN CHECK THE PRESSURE SWITCHES.
