You may have a problem with your pressure switch. Before assuming you have a pressure switch failure, however, please read the following link:

The majority of the cases I've experienced with a washer overflow problem has been a simple problem of the air hose coming loose. This is a very simple problem that any do-it-yourselfer can check themselves. Plus, it may save you an expensive service call. If you follow the instructions provided and still have a problem, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I HAVE A GE WASHER THAT FILLS WITH WATER AND OVERFLOWS. DOESN'T MATTER WHAT SIZE LOAD, IT CONTINUES TO FILL WITH WATER AND OVERFLOWS. IT STOPS WHEN I HIT THE STOP/PAUSE BUTTON.


There is a pressure sensor that needs to be looked into. USUALLY, there is a chamber, on the outside of the washer tub, and out of the top of it is a small plastic hose. This hose runs up to an electrical switch.
Too much soap, over time, can plug up this system, so the machine has no idea how much water is going in...and keeps filling..... Sometimes the hose comes loose, but this makes a fairly immediate water leak, so I suspect something is plugged.

Wont stop filling with water


You need to replace the fill switch its not sensing or stopping the w ater. It is fairly simple. Remove the plastic molding on the ends. Remove two screws holding down the control panel. The fill switch is over to the left, and has a clear tube attached to it. Remove tube and wires, lift tab keeping it from turning, turn 45 degrees and remove switch. Replace and test in all positions. Good luck whirlpool is a good brand.

Washer fills w/ water, but will not stop filling. Therefore it never goes into the agitation cycle. Any help greatly appreciated!


Level control valve is bad or line came off it or a hole in line. But it's likely the valve. It could be that you can adjust it and it will work at one level only. it has a screw where you can do that. Just take the panel off and you will see what I mean.

Water will not stop on cycle


If you turn the timer off and the water still runs you have a bad water valve. If it stops when the timer is off, You have a bad pressure switch.

Washer continues to fill after full, then spills all over floor until manual shut off


This is an indication of a pressure switch malfunction. Post back with your washer brand name and model number and I can tell you how to check it.

Washer constantly fills with hot water even when turned off.


Sounds like a bad mixing valve. To verify that it is the valve you need to turn off the washer when it is filling. If water keeps running, replace the valve, Cost is under $50. for most washers.

Nf pops up on the screen & the washer stops


The "nf" code is a "no-fill" fault. This indicates that your washing is not getting water supplied to it, or the pressure isn't substantial enough to complete a fill. You need to, first, make sure the water supply is turned on. Second, if the water IS turned on, and you're still not getting anything to your washer, you may have a fill valve problem. The fill valve is what both your hoses connect to on the back of the machine. It can become clogged with sediment over time (especially, if you have hard water or well water). Turn the water supply off and remove both hoses from the back of the washer. Check both these hose connections for clogs in the filter screens. If they are clear, then more than likely the fill valve has gone bad. I hope this helps you.
