Thw washer will fill with water but won't stop. I have to stop and manually turn the knob to the next cycle. It continues on through each cycle but when it fills with water each time (twice) it won't stop until I stop it.

Re: Washer water overflow.
I am a recently retired engineer of 20 years and this sounds like a blockage to start with,
when you remove the lid you will find a round disc like object (pressure switch) with a thin pipe coming from it going down to the bottom end of the machine, this pipe as either come off or is blocked somewhere.
drain the machine totally, clear out the pipes, make sure there are no damaged parts to the pipes, then make sure all are fitted properly, start the machine off again and watch for water level shutting off near the bottom of the door,
start with the above, if this doesn't cover the fault there may be an issue with the timer or electrical fault elsewhere/?
hope this helps, if so rate me please, thank you

1) the water inlet valve that the hoses from the houseplumbing attach to is sticking open,when it sticks it will stick open regardless if thier is power to the machine or not,so to determine if that is the problem,start the washer and quickly unplug it,if the water continues to fill, that valve is sticking
2) the water level switch is defective,do the same as far as starting it,if the fill stops when power disconected it's the water level switch that is in need of replacement
Hello,Sounds like a problem with either the inlet valve or the pressure switch, way to determine which on is while it is filling pull the plug..if water keeps filling it's the inlet valve..if it stops filling it's the pressure switch..If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again..good luck!!

if not running over ck to be sure drain is proper height and end of washer drain hose is not too tight in standpipe sound like siphoning after 1st wash and not filling to advance to rinse also be sure washer dring hose is not more than 6-8 in into standpipe
There could be several causes for this, but probably a bad timer. One test for this...when it stops...is to turn it off...and turn the timer slightly clockwise...to the middle of the rinse cycle...and turn it back on. Does it run then?? Try advancing it to the spin cycle after the rinse. If it runs okay after you manually advance the knob...the timer is probably defective.
