Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Height of exit hose (behind machine) should be approx 3 feet from ground level when you are re-fitting.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

SOURCE: water runs into tub but does not fill?

be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.

SOURCE: kenmore washer...the water just runs it never fills up.

I have seen this problem numerous times on service calls. It sounds like you have a siphoning problem. The key symptom is the wash tub that continously attempts to fill, but cannot achieve the proper water level. This is often caused by not having an air gap on your drain line, improper placement of the drain hose, or a standpipe that is too small in diameter. The following link explains:

If you place the drain hose in the standpipe too far, or seal the top of the standpipe, this can cause a vacuum which will cause the symptoms you describe. A tell-tale sign will be a sucking noise as you pull the drain hose from the standpipe. Read through the link I provided. If this does not correct your problem please post back and let me know before you rate this solution. This way I can try to assist you further. I hope this corrects your problem.

If it has the little oval off/on button, it sounds like the control box or off/on button is bad. If you have access to the pump assembly, follow the pump power cord to the little black box (zip tied to a tube up high), this black box has a small cable that goes to the off/on button. unplug the pump from the box and plug the pump into the power outlet. it should run continuously. If it runs, you need a new control box or /offon button. Buy the off/on button first, as this button is prone to water getting into it, and costs less than the control box.

SOURCE: Washing Machine Keeps Filling with Water through Detergent dispen

This machine has a water valve that works on vaccuum from the tub. You will see a small clear hose that runs from the side of the tub up to this valve. This valve is adjustable to change the water level in the tub to desired setting on some machines, but if it goes bad, it will not shut off, thus overflowing the tub. Find this valve and replace it if adjustment does not work.

We have a Frigidaire top load washer model FFTW1001PW and wash light blinks and it starts but stops right away. We have checked lock and hoses and fuses and screens and it still isn't working. Any ideas?


This sounds like a similar fault I repaired on a Fisher Paykell top loader smart drive. It would fill up, start it's wash cycle (you'd hear the engine turn back and forth ) and a second later stop. It turned out that a position sensor on the motor had failed due to a small water leak. I'm unable to find the motor for your model of Frigidaire to see if there is a similar sensor or pick up module though.

On my Electrolux Washer EIFLW55HIWO the water will not shut off. It keeps filling the tub. Thanks


It's possible that your pressure switch is bad. For that model it's Frigidaire OEM Part #134762010. It's about $40 on line.
This manufacturer-approved water level pressure switch (part number 134762010) is for washers.

Water level pressure switch 134762010 senses and controls the water level in the washer.

Unplug the washer and shut off the water supply before installing this part. Wear work gloves to protect your hands.

Lf keeps coming up and it says to add garment , i keep adding and have wet unwashed clothes


Hi there,

Well this problem seems in the pressure switch, if the water fill time exceeds ten minutes, the water valves are turned off and LF is flashed.

The water level switch, is responsible for regulating the water fill level. It does this through a plastic tube which runs from the switch in the control console down to the side of the outer tub, near the bottom . The tube is filled with air. As water enters the tub it also enters the tube. As water climbs inside the tube, it pushes on the air trapped inside and increases the air pressure. When the air pressure reaches a certain level, it triggers the switch. So you can check the air tube for kinks, breaks or damage. The tube should also be free of water. The tubing should be securely connected to the bottom of the outer tub and to the bottom of the water level switch. If there is water present, the switch must be replaced.

The water level switch has three connectors. You need a ohms meter to check the switch.
Please post comments if you need more help or information......

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Washer overflowing from the tub


There's an air tube connected to the back of the water level switch, If that is kinked/pinched/crimped/disconnected or has a hole in it... the pressure switch will "think" there's no water in the tub and thus continue to fill it. Access your control panel and verify your air tube connection @ the level switch.
