One of the main common reasons why a washing machine will continue to fill with water when it is turned off is due to a failed water inlet valve and the water inlet value needs to be replaced. This valve controls the flow of water into your washing machine that's required for both the rinse and wash cycles.

SOURCE: water flowing out of the machine

i woulds assume that the air line responsible for monitoring water level has disconnected form the side of tub. with a screwdriver you can pry the main top up. approx, 3-4 inches in from either side of the front panel( where teh top meets the front panel, youll find a spring type clip that with some pressure will release0 and allow you to flip the ,main top backwards. afet that yo can look down the left rrear side of drum and see the 1/4 plastic tubing( i would assume dangling there) reconnect to the side of drum adn all should be good.

When i turn on the washer it won't start& water keeps flowing into washing machine. does the water flows or not suppose to flow into the washing machine from the inlet valve?


water into a washing machine is controlled by a tube in the side of the bowl up to a pressure switch
as the water level rises in the bowl, pressure in the switch is built up until it overcomes the setting that you have made for a water level on the wash size selection switch
at this point it turns off the inlet solenoid switch and starts the wash cycle
If the water solenoid is burnt out then water will continue to come in and over flow the bowl but it should be washing as well
If the water is not stopping then check for a disconnected hose to the switch or ma hose full of water
failing all that get a washing machine mechanic in

WASHER DOES NOT AGITATE OR CYCLE AFTER WATER FILL


If your Top Load Washer is Over Flowing Check the Following it is possible that the Water Inlet Valve is faulty.
First check to see if water is entering the machine when it is shut off if it is,replace water inlet valve. If no water enters the machine when it is shut off the water inlet valve is not the problem.

Pressure Switch
The pressure switch controls the level of water in your washing machine. This does this by a small chamber on the side of the tub, this chamber fills with water wich in turns creates pressure in the chamber. There is a hose connected to this chamber that runs up to the switch. When the right amount of pressure is applied to the switch it stops the water flow. If the hose becomes clogged up, gets punctured or cracks and leaks the hose will need to be cleaned or replaced. If the hose looks good and has no holes check the pressure switch by checking it for continuity when blowing on the end of the hose. This will close the switch and simulate pressure. If you have no continuity when the switch is closed replace the pressure switch, this video will walk you thru replacing and testing.

I put in a load. The machine filled up but did not stop filling. The dial did not proceede to next step, it stayed at the 10. Overflowing EVERYWHERE. When we moved the dial manually to spin, it drained...


your fill switch is either bad or "gllitched" and the timer cannot move until this switch senses the right amount of water for the load unless its an electronically sensed water/load capacity filled machine,when it starts,the water fills the unit and the pressure switch shuts the water fill off when at selected water level and powers the timer to continue the wash cycle,it works off a "bellows" on air pressure to change a switch by air pressure to operate the machine when full of water

Does not stop filling


Your float relay needs to be replaced. When your water level gets to a certain level it will "float" to a switch and activate it - and it will in turn, turn off the flow of water. If that switch it bad, your water will continue to flow.

Water dose ot stop when washer is full. It continues to run.


If you disconnected power and water still flowed, replace the water valve. If water stopped flowing when power was disconnected, clean out tube from tub to water level switch.

Bosch continues to fill when rinsing even when the machine is off


The inlet valve is stuck open most commonly , you can check this by taking the wires off the valve and then turn everything back on , if the water is still flowing replace the inlet valve.

Water is not flowing into the machine


There are a couple of possibilities:
  1. Are the hot and cold valves open?
  2. If there are filter screens in the lines, are they clogged?
  3. If set to warm, does any water flow at all?
  4. If there is no water flow, first check the water level switch to see if it is working...this is located on the bottom of the machine...it is generally round and has a tube running to the tub and two or more wires.  It should have closed contacts to let the water valve work.
  5. If there is some water flow, the valve is likely bad or the supply is clogged.
  6. If the switch is continuous, the problem may be the timer.
  7. Is the water temp switch good?...unlikely.

You either have a defective pressure switch or water inlet valve. Start to fill the machine with warm water so that both solenoids on the water inlet valve (hot and cold) are activated. After about 30-60 seconds, push the timer knob in to stop water flow. If the water continues to flow, replace the water inlet valve. If this is the case, it may take a few times of starting and stopping water flow to allow solenoid to heat up and become symptomatic. If water flow stops abruptly each time knob is pushed in, you most likely have a defective pressure switch (water level switch).

Maytag washer PAV2300 water over flow


I had the same problem and went out to a website for Maytag washers. That website advised that the problem could be mechanical or electrical. In my case, the problem was a clogged tube and it took only ten or fifteen minutes to fix.
0. Unplug the machine.
1. Open up the front of the washer. Along the left hand side is a long transparent tube. The tube connects to a wallet size container on the side and near the bottom of the tub.
2. Inspect the transparent tube. It may be clogged where the tube meets the wallet sided container.
Note: When the tub is full, it creates pressure in that wallet size compartment which sends air up that tube to a pressure switch located within the panel at the top of the washer. The pressure switch flips and tells the machine - stop filling the tub with water. My machine had a visible clog in the bottom of the tube that carries the air from the bottom of the tub up to the pressure switch.
3. Disconnect the tube and clean. I used a pipecleaner to get most of the mold out. To completely clear the tube, remove the top panel and disconnect the tube from the pressure switch in the top panel and blow air down the tube.
4. Reconnect, test - and you should be good to go. If not, your pressure switch may be dead.

Maytag washer PAV2300 water over flow


tidalwave If the water continues to flow even when the washer timer and the power to the washer are off then you are right and the water inlet valve has to be replaced. If it does it only when the washer is on then it could be different problems. In that case the first thing you have to check is the water level switch. This is the device which controls the water level. Remove the power first.Open the control panel and you will see the switch on the left side. There is the clear plastic hose connected to the switch. Make sure the hose is not loose. This is one of the most common cause of overflow. If it got loose, drain out all water from the washer before you reconnect the hose. If this is not the issue then you have to check the continuity across the water level switch therminals. When there is no water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 12 (gray and orange wires). Whet the tub has filled up with water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 14 (gray and light blue wires). If the continuity is wrong replace the water level switch. If you are going to do it, make sure there is no water in the tub before you will remove the clear plastic hose from the old switch. Good luck. Gendos. post back...
