If your Top Load Washer is Over Flowing Check the Following it is possible that the Water Inlet Valve is faulty. First check to see if water is entering the machine when it is shut off if it is,replace water inlet valve. If no water enters the machine when it is shut off the water inlet valve is not the problem.
Pressure Switch The pressure switch controls the level of water in your washing machine. This does this by a small chamber on the side of the tub, this chamber fills with water wich in turns creates pressure in the chamber. There is a hose connected to this chamber that runs up to the switch. When the right amount of pressure is applied to the switch it stops the water flow. If the hose becomes clogged up, gets punctured or cracks and leaks the hose will need to be cleaned or replaced. If the hose looks good and has no holes check the pressure switch by checking it for continuity when blowing on the end of the hose. This will close the switch and simulate pressure. If you have no continuity when the switch is closed replace the pressure switch, this video will walk you thru replacing and testing.
Never reach inside the washing machine with it connected to the mains. The door interlock is always live.
There are several reasons why a Hotpoint door could be jammed shut.
•A broken door catch or door frame where the door catch screws in (they are rubbish on many Hotpoints - always breaking) you can sometimes get the door open if you push the door firmly in as you open it
•If there is water still inside the washing machine, then the door wont open either on these Hotpoint washing machines (not on some others though) If this is the case, when you try to open the door the ****** won't try to move down at all. You can open the door usually if you drain the machine. (only applicable with door interlocks that have a rubber pressure hose attached to them)
•A faulty door interlock
•The pressure chamber can be blocked on some earlier Hotpoint washing machines which gives the same effect as having water in the machine. Basically the washer "thinks" there is water in when there isn't. This would require the washing machine being stripped down to remove and clean the pressure chamber bottle. This cause is only applicable to washing machines where a small rubber hose is connected to the door interlock. This hose allows the door mechanism to be locked and unlocked by air pressure activated by water rising inside the pressure chamber bottle attached at the other end on the tub. Gunge can block the very small aperture where the pressure hose fits to the pressure chamber bottle.

hotpoint wma turn off the power and you are looking for the presure w
switch and chamber , the switch is at the back of the soap draw by the valves on the left hand side there should be a hose going into it take it off and blow through it if nothing happens pull the machine out and at the bottom of the back there is a white plastic cover take it off look for the sump hose and on the side of it there is a whit plastic tube this is the presure chamber clean it out might be blocked
If the water continues to come in without the washer being on, then you have faulty inlet valve, replace.
If it stops when you turn m/c off, then you probably have a sticking water level switch, or a blocked pressure chamber and /or pressure hose.
the pressure chamber and hose are located at the rear right side of the m/c .
Remove lower rear panel, and remove the hose with the long thin hose attached to it this is the pressure chamber and hose, thoroughly clean and fit back.Test it for leaks.
This should solve the problem.
While in the back I would suggest you remove large black hose and clean the filter located in there as this could also be a factor in it overfilling.
Plz rate my solution.
Sounds like a faulty or sticking water level switch.
Could be a blockage in the pressure chamber to the switch.
Remove the hose to the pressure switch and see if it is clear by blowing down it, you should hear air or bubbles at the other end, if not then it is blocked..
If clear then check switch.
problem could be the pressure stat which is a switch which detects water level or the pipe leading up to this switch or the air chamber the pipe goes to.
take top off. locate the pressure switch - has a small diameter pipe going to it. remove pipe and fit a similiar one. put on fill and pressurise this pipe by mouth and water fill should stop. if it doesn't, then switch is faulty.
if this is ok, examine carefully the small diameter pipe for splits and blockage. also check the air chamber for build up of gunge
it will be to do with the pressure switch it may be faulty, but more often than not there is a blockage in the pressure chamber which is located at the bottom of the outer drum, check the chamber and the tube that goes up to the pressure switch to see if they are blocked if they are clear of obstruction then test the pressure switch,to do this unclip the pressure switch from the side of the machine but dont take the wires off once off pull the tube off that goes down to the pressure chamber once off blow in to the nossle on the pressure switch, you should hear it click and then when you release it should click again, if it doet click twice then that is your problem, hope that helps.
Its most likely the pressure switch. Either the pressure switch is faulty or the small clear tubing connecting it to the drum has come off.. Thirdly there could be a blockage in the tubing..
The way it works is as the machine fill's with water the air that was in the drum forces up the tube, the pressure of the tube causes the switch to break therefore stopping any more water comming in.. ONCE this switch is BROKEN the the timer will move forwards.... YOu can access the pressure switch by removing the top panel (3 screws at the back) and the front panel (4 screws located near the soap draw ) then you have to remove the front panel with the door. then you can assess and resolve the situation.. The pressure switch is whitish you will see it has the clear tube attached and some wires...
