Washing machine stuck in fill cycle

From reading the other posts I think I may have to check my water level switch, but I'll ask anyway. My washing machine (randomly, it doesn't do it every time) will sometimes seem to get stuck filling. The water empties as it should (it doesn't over flow), but it won't move on to the next cycle. The water just runs and runs and runs. I can manually turn the knob to the next setting, but that means I have to remember to check it all the time and who has time for that? Any ideas on what might be going on?

It certainly sounds like the water level switch acting up. Do a couple of other checks first. Make sure you are not siphoning on the initial fill. Check your drain hose and make sure there is an air gap to the drain pipe. If you don't have a gap sometimes it will fill and siphon right out. Next would be to examine the level switch hose that runs to the tub. You want to make sure that there is no pin hole leaks in it causing this problem. Once you are satisfied the drain and tubing is ok, get another piece of tubing the same size and blow into the level switch when the machine is acting up. If the water stops, you can be almost certain it is the switch. Part number...3366847. It's important to do these checks because I have seen timers on this model mimic the water level switch.

I want to say that I read this about 10 minutes ago and I went and checked my drain hose and it was full of water. I pulled the drain house out of it's socket and the slug of water that was in there came out. I started a wash cycle and it has now gone onto the agitation part of the cycle, so problem fixed!!!. I was having the siphoning effect issue. Thanks for the accurate and easy fix.

LG Turbodrum DD 8.5kg WT-R852 washing machine, will not completely fill with water to water, to initiate the wash cycle, wash process stops there.

THE WASHER IS OBVIOUSLY HAVING A PROBLEM DETECTING THE WATER LEVEL? IT DETECTS AS FULL WHEN ITS NOT AND THEN GOES INTO DRAIN CYCLE? THE FILLS AGAIN? I would suspect the water pressure switch but if it was detecting a full cycle it would sent it into wash cycle? the water inlet valve only allows the amount of water it is told to send in and does not control the amount or drain cycle. Im not sure here but Im thinking maybe the water level switch may be flawed, the one that has low-medium and high? all these can be checked with a multimeter

My whirlpool washing machine wont stop filling with water after the wash cycle

your post is vauge

does it over flow
you mean it wont stop the rinse cycle


did you check it for a reset
do a factory reset

the machine will fill with water until the flow sensor and level has filled

so check and clean the machine

i find a couple of dishwasher cleaner tabs thru it first will clean all the flows and pipes and use a 60 deg long wash for whites
i think all the electro is aok so must be dirt

Make sure your washing machine is on level ground, if the machine is off balance it will stop.

Hi

You'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly. Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

No water is coming in the dishwasher. I can hear the water running, but the water is not coming into the dishwasher

If you can hear the water running - but it's not filling, you most likely have a drain problem, which is being stuck open. Usually the motor kicks in and either pumps the water through the wash arms (during wash cycle) or through the drain (during drain cycle) the switch that/or flap could be stuck on the drain and it is pumping it out the drain all the time instead of the wash arms.

We have a whirlpool LSR7233EZO. When I set the dial where it should fill with water no water runs in but the agitator runs. This happens on any of the load choices. From what I've been able to find out I...

Your problem sounds like a faulty water level switch,not your fill valve. With the machine empty at the beginning of your cycles, the switch should internally be in the "empty" position to energize your fill valve solenoid(s), then when the machine completes the filling to the level selected on your water level knob, the level switch repositions to the "full" position to energize your timer to advance the cycle. If the switch is stuck in the "full" position all the time, as soon as you pull your timer knob out to start any cycle, the machine already thinks it has filled to the desired level, and immediately energizes your timer to advance to the wash step and begin agitation, even though the tub is dry. I will refer you to the following link for a video showing you the fill/switch replacement procedure: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIs9gX0YjxI&feature=related

I hope I've addressed your problem as described

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.

Washer wont stop filling

There is probably a plastic tube running from the tub to a pressure switch which controls the water level cutoff on control panel. One can locate this by taking the backcover off and looking at the water level switch and following the tube to the connection on the tub. Tube must fit on level switch tightly for it to work properly.

Hotpoint WT540 1400 spin Washing Machine stuck on cycle

Could be a sticking water level switch, which controls the water level, or a blockage in the hose to the switch, or a trapped or split hose to the switch. the hose in question is about 6mm in diam,and goes from the sump hose to the pressure switch,if u remove the hose from the preesure switch chamber, check for a blockage there, and blow down the hose to see if it is clear, u should hear the switch click if it is clear, if no click and hose is clear, then I wud say the switch is faulty.
Plz rate my comments.
Thanks
