Water continual running piease help


The Water Inlet Valve on your washing machine is used to fill the tub with cold, warm or hot water for the wash and rinse cycles. The valve is operated by electric solenoids that are controlled by the timer or electronic control board and the water level control/water level selector switch or pressure switch. If your washer continues to fill during a cycle, the water inlet valve could be at fault. To verify that the valve is at fault, unplug the washer when the symptom occurs. If the washer continues to fill, then the water inlet valve is defective. If the washer stops filling, then the problem is related to the electrical circuit that controls the valve. The water level switch is a pressure activated switch that is used to determine the correct water level in the tub. This part is normally located behind the control panel and will have a hose or air dome tube that connects it to the tub. On washers that use an electronic control, this switch may be located at the sump area below the tub. As the water fills in the tub it will compress the air in the tube and push against a diaphragm inside the switch. The switch will control the water inlet valve and turn the valve off at the correct water level. If the tube has a leak or is plugged, not enough pressure may be created to activate the switch and the washer may overfill. If the switch is defective it may also cause the machine to overfill.
To determine if the switch is bad, you should first eliminate the air dome hose as a problem. Look for signs of cracks or worn areas on the hose. Remove the hose and submerge in water. Seal one end and blow air into the other end and look for bubbles. Check for an obstruction in the hose as well. If the air dome hose appears to be ok, then the water level pressure switch may be defective. Inspect the switch for signs of a mechanical defect or debris plugging the hole in the inlet nipple. To test the switch contacts for continuity with a multi-meter, you will need to apply the proper amount of air pressure to the air dome tube and then look for the switch to go open circuit at that level. The easiest way to do this is to start the washer and allow it to fill to the normal level and then remove the power cord. Locate the pressure switch and remove the wires from the correct terminals and then perform the continuity test. There should be infinite resistance or an "open circuit" when the water level is correct. If not, then the switch is defectiv

There should be a float switch that stops filling when the correct level is reached. Sometimnes the float switch sticks, causing a flood. The float part of the switch assembly should be removed and cleaned. If it is damaged or leaky, it should be replaced

Washing machine keeps beeping when i try to start it and it goes from the minutes on the screen to do to FL ?? ive tried turning it of and restarting it ?


Hello there: FL Flood Condition FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display. You may want to have the water level sensor replaced cause this will cause this condition if it is faulty ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards mike

Maytag top loadind washer. Won't stop filling up.


Make sure your drain hose to the drain pipe is higher than the water in the tub if not it will keep running and going out the drain.
Also try taking the hose off the level switch and blow in it to be sure it's not stoped up. If is it won't let the level sw cut off. air should go through it. Good luck
When you unpluged the power and it ddn't keep runing the water valve should be ok.

There is a pressure switch with a tube to the water drain. The switch may be faulty or needs adjustment. The tube may be blocked or disconnected.

99 passport 4x4 tranny question


There is not a dipstick for the automatic transmission on the 1999 Honda Passport. There are two plugs on the bottom of the transmission - the lowest one is the drain plug and the one located higher is the overfill plug. You should have a fluid temperature gauge as it is recommended that the temperature be between 90* F and 135* F when checking fluid level. (I believe you can order from dealer - I have also heard that running the engine for 10-15 min will put you near the proper temperature - to be certain, the temperature gauge is the right way to do it.) Run engine for a few minutes to reach optimum temperature. The vehicle must be on level ground and at idle to properly check fluid level. With proper temperature reached - and engine running at idle - set parking brake - remove the fill plug and add fluid with a syringe or small pump until it just starts to run out of the opening. Do not open the overfill screw with the engine stopped. Replace the fill plug and shift through gears - then remove and repeat one time to achieve proper level.

When washer is in super wash cycle water will not stop causingthe tub to over fill running onto the floor.


It sounds like you are trying to use the largest water level setting. If this is correct you may have a pressure switch problem.

First turn the timer to spin and get all of the water out, that start a washer cycle with the water level set to the small or low setting and see if the washer fills to this level. if it stops at the low level great Now if it continues to fill and does stop you may need a pressure switch or the hose needs to be replaced that runs from the tub to the pressure switch.

Now set at the medium level and try again. does it stop or over fill?

If it over fills you probably need a pressure switch however before you purchase this, make sure the hose is in good condition one pin hole will cause your overfill condition.

check your hose from the side of the tub all the way up to the water selector knob. if its loose or has even a pin sized hole in it, it will cause the maching not to sense it has reached the level selected.

Check to make sure your drain hose has a loop at least as high as washer top.  If the drain hose is not looped higher than tub water will continue to drain and it won't stop filling.  If it doesn'y reach the correct fill level it won't agitate.
