Next time send the model number so i can look up you machine,i can give you the part number and price.if it's a top load washer set the timer on spin,open the lid and with a screw driver push down on the lid switch,you'll see a hole in the top of the frame and a strike on the lid the strike pushes down on the lid switch and sends power to the washer,the factory doesn't want the washer to run if the lid is opened,if it starts to spin then you have a bad lid switch,the switch could be totally broken so if it doesn't run the easiest way to check the switch is to push down and the up on the switch if it makes a clicking sound the switch is good,no clicking the switch is bad.this is a common problem,let me know if this is it.if it isn't the problem send the model number.thanks.

SOURCE: Filling With Water

I recently had the same problem. I checked the end of the air hose coming from the tub. It had a tear in it right at the connection. I just cut off the hose at the tear and placed the hose back on the connection.

SOURCE: Fisher paykel gwl10us wont fill

Both of you most likely are getting a "RPS Sensor Fault"
On a GWL10, when the motor rotor position sensor fails, it will act exactly like you describe. Many techs incorrectly replace the machine control or the water inlet valve(s). The RPS sensor is much cheaper. If you consult the tech sheet located under the control panel, you will see the fault code for RPS failure and I would bet the farm that the sequence of LEDs displayed when your washer faults out matches exactly with the RPS fault code.

The RPS sensor for GWL10 and GWL11 models is a part # 420296P and canbe purchased direct from Fisher Paykel Parts:

The procedure to replace it is a little involved but a handy person can do it. It would be best to consult the factory service manual and again, that can be purchased from Fisher Paykel Parts direct here:

SOURCE: Maytag washer, model: LAT8415AAE top loader. Washer fills with water but will not start agitating,spin or drain.

Check lid switch. Most will not run with lid open and the switch may not be pressed down when door is closed

SOURCE: Water will not stop filling the washer

I just fixed this problem on my GE washer that overflowed earlier into my hallway and living room. The fix required removing the tube from its connection at the outer tub and cleaning out some residue that was preventing air from moving to the sensor at the top of the machine at the control panel. No tools were needed other than a large steak knife to undo the clips to remove the front panel of the machine and a small flat head screw driver that I used to clean out the plastic pressure hose.

The good news is that even if this had not worked and the sensor/switch needed to be replaced, the part is available for replacement at the local hardware superstore and a few online outlets for around thirty dollars. Replacement of the switch looks to be relatively simple by disconnecting the existing wiring housing and replacing with a new part.

There are several detailed diagrams available online by doing a search for your product/ model number.

Be sure to check the hose before replacing the pressure sensor/switch- this will save time and money.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Frigidaire washer starts to fill with water then stops

Check motor brushes, may be worn so motor will not turn under load, if not that could be more serious, faulty PCB or timer,
Will it spin on spin setting? call for approved engineer if unsure

Kenmore serie 80.does not stop filling water in and does not star


Yeah I've seen that happen a many of times. Take the back of the control panel off and where your load size selector is you'll find a little hose that's suppoed to be attached to the side of it. just reattach it and you'll be back up and running.

Almost all washing machines use a pressure tube that tells the washer when to stop filling with water. If the tube comes off for some reason the washer will never stop filling and that's an instant flood if you don't notice it quick enough. Also a hole or puncture of any kind can be causing ti to never stop filling as well.

Hope this helps

Water will not stop filling washer


cut power to washer ..does it stop filling? suspect water level control or small hose to it is off ..keeps running in? shut off water to washer and change fill valve where hoses attach..just won't fill to top and start? raise level of drain hose up and be sure it is not too tight in drain pipe to prevent siphoning

If your washer does not stop filling, you have a problem with your inlet water valve at the rear top of the machine. You simply have to replace this.
