Tips for a great answer:
Hi Greg Meigs - If your washer will not stop filling up with water and overflows the tub, check for one of these problems:
1) Turn off the electricity to the washer. If the water *stopped* filling when power was disconnected, the problem would usually be in the control system of the machine. If the water still continues, then the plunger in the water valve is either stuck open or slow to close. Try turning the water faucets off and on a few times. This small joltmight unstick the water valve. If not, it will need replacing.
2) There could be a problem with the water level switch. Call in a professional.
3) There is a pressure switch hose that is attached to an air dome. This switch tells the washer that there is water in the tub and allows the agitator to start.
- Remove the control panel and you will notice a small hose. See if it popped off of the air dome. If it did, secure it with a zip tie.
If water flow continues, but drains out immediately, then raise the drain hose above the highest water level line of the tub. Do not seal the drain hose to the discharge pipe. This could cause a siphoning action.
The top load washer utilizes a pressure switch attached to a clear plastic hose. If the water fills the tub but will not stop filling you will need to remove the top panel and inspect the hose for obstructions. You may need to disconnect the tube flush it clean and make sure no foreign debris are in the connector on the pressure switch. If the tub will over fill, you may need to replace the pressure switch. If the water will not fill the tub and the water continues to run you need to check the drain pump. Is water exiting through the drain hose? If so the drain pump could be the problem.
