    Hi thanks for that, the fill valve is staying energised so it isn't receiving a signal to shut of, will check out the level switch. Regards Paul.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. I have seen this problem many times. You have a bad water level switch. This switch controls the level of the water going into the washer. Change the switch and your problem will be gone. Best regards. Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi, there are two reasons why your washer does not stop filling.......
Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

My defy front loader filled up with water at 2am last night while not in use...flooding my kitchen. the machine tap is always left open, but is active only when the machine has been switched on???


the water inlet valve is faulty and is not closing fully when powered off causing a small but constant stream of water coming into the machine until it floods out the front, you will need to replace the water inlet valve, in the meantime turn the taps off when your not using it

My washing machine keeps FLOODING THE HOUSE :(


Was the machine level when it was rocking? If so there's possibly an issue with the suspension tip machine back and look underneath and make sure the 2 rods connected to either side of the plastic drum housing are connected to the base of machine(they are on an angle running to the machine frame) if there ok and don't look damaged tip it back upright. Then Take off the top panel there's screws at the back and slide it back to get off. There should be 2 big springs connected from top to the drum check they are ok, also check the big weights on the front & back of drun housing aren't broken or loose. Its most likely the water level pressure settings have faulted from the bad shaking, there's hose ( usually cream colored thin rubber) hose connected to a round switch with wires come out of its connected to machine frame. Make sure there's no water in machine then take off hose and pou back on again and check its also attached to machine drum housing(hose runs down inside machine) once this is reset it will probably fix problem. Turn on machine and fill the wates should stop well before half way up the glass window if not there's still problems and it will overflow when clothes are put in

My front loader does not get no water in it


Hello - Washer not filling with water can be caused by many reasons. Most common cause is a faulty switch that doesn't allow the value inside turn or a kinked fill hose. Other possibilities can be water valve faults, faulty control board, pressure switch or wiring failure. Are the house valves turn on fully? Contact a professional to move forward accurately?

Front load washer filling up with water when off


if it's off or unpluged and still filling up you have a bad water valve,mark the hoses if they're not marked already so you know where the hot and cold fill hoses go after you change out the water valve on the washer,usually sediment gets stuck in the valve stopping it from closing and the water will keep filling into the washer,i've seen houses flooded from this,shut down the house valve that feeds the washer until you get the new washer valve.hope this helps and good luck,next time send the brand name and model number.

I have the kenmore HE2 front loader. when you turn it on now water comes pouring out of the detergent filling compartment and flooded the house... any ideas


there is a water inlet on the right side of the detergent filling cup to flush out the dry detergent. take out the fill and it is midway back on the right(little rubber hose) once you locate that take the top panel off and follow the hose, should lead to a silinoid. this is most likely sticking open, or the line is broken and dumping water into the washer cavity instead of in the detergent cup. hope that gets you started in the right direction.

GE profile top loader washer will not fill with water at all!!


do you hear any humming when it asks for water? do you have flood stop hoses? if you have flood stop hoses take them off this could be your problem. sounds like the unit thinks its full of water if it only washes and spins sounds like you have a bad pressure switch. this should be a covered repair if the unit is brand new. let me know if you have any other questions

The grey sludge may be due to incorrect soap powder (use only front loader) or excessive powder use. Minimise the powder use and insure you do a very hot wash once every 4 weeks to break down powder that may be building up.
