Question about Whirlpool LSR6232J Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Not filling up properly

Very strange...
On "small" the water level fills just fine and I can do a load of laundry but, on med or high, it only gets to a certan lavel and then it starts to drain. If I turn the machine off, all of the water simply drains out of the drain hose. It is as if there is a valve stuck open but, I don't know where to begin to look...

    If it helps, the drain hose was kinked and that did stop the water from draining properly just before this happened...

    That worked!!!!

    I would have felt pretty stupid calling a repair guy....

I think the water is syphoning. if drain hose is pushed into a stand pipe, then you have it pushed too far down. otherwise, take the drain hose up in a swan neck at least to the level of the worktop

Why would a washing machine fill to proper level and then stop. no action after filling.


Power was never the issue or it wouldn't have filled at all. Also the pressure switch that detects water level must be okay since it stopped filling at the proper level. That leaves the control board or a relay that the control board uses to start the drum motor.

No matter what setting I put it on,like small load or med washer fills up with water and will not shut off. What could the promblem be.i


If you have to shut the water off at the tap and the washer agitates then you need a new fill valve . If it shuts the water off when you push the stop button or unplug the washer then the level switch is bad or the hose from the tub to the level switch is obstructed,

Washing Machine wont recoginze the load amount to fill with water, ex..small, med, it justs keep filling up to the brim??


Sounds like your problem is one of three things. Most common is that you have to "reset" the water level. This is done by turning the water level knob passed the large load size, and then down to small. Any time you want to go to a smaller sized load, you have to do this. Another possibility is that the pressure switch is bad, this is an easy fix (although not as easy as the reset) The switch can be purchased thru a local parts supply house. And the last thing could be a bad water valve. This will leak and continue to fill the washer after it is already full, this however is usually followed with water all over the floor. If it is not the reset, write me back and I'll walk you thru the other repairs. Hope this helps!

Maytag FAV6800AWW - Major overflow right after starting machine


Hi, If you turn the water source valve on and water starts filling the machine even tho the machine is off, change the inlet valve.
If you have to start the machine so water will fill but, the water does not shut off at the desired level, there is a problem with the water level switch.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Vic.
