Your water level switch is stuck.
Probably due to soap scum in the air dome line.
Remove the control console screws to access the water level switch.
Remove the small plastic hose from the water level switch and blow through it to dislodge the blockage.
If it is difficult to blow through,remove the front panel and take the hose off at the air dome on the side of the tub.
Push a small wire into the air dome to clear the clog.
Replace the hose on both ends.
Set the timer for SPIN and run a spin cycle.
Then retry the water level fill.
If it does not fill correctly,replace the water level switch.

Whirlpool Washer model # LSN1000KQ0 overfilling


did you plug the hose back into the water level switch, double check to see if it is plugged, if it is your water level switch might be defective. trouble shoot by taking the front panel off... turn on the washer by using the timer, set water level to small...on the bottom of the tub housing there should be a nipple where the clear hose connects onto.....follow the clear hose from the switch down to the bottom of the tub.........disconnect the clear hose on the bottom of the tub.....plugg the nipple with your finger.........gently blow into the hose with your mouth.......but make sure the water level in the tub is at least at half way full...and the washer is on and filling up with water ...after you blow into the hose the washer should agitate.......if it does agitate your water level switch is defective...connect hose back........get your model number and source for the switch.........

Will not stop filling with water and does not agitate


If you can unplug the washer and the washer keeps filling with water, then the control valve assembly is shot and needs to be replaced (not hard, just takes a bit of time).

If you unplug the washer and water stop filling, then there is a problem with the timer switch and / or water level sensor. Timer switch is not big deal to replace either (easier than valve assembly, but costs more). Level sensor hard to replace since located near the top of the basket inside the washer.

If washer doesn't fill with water until you start a cycle, and then won't stop filling, then it is level sensor, or possible timer issue.

You can probably get replacement parts from local appliance shop, as well as some pointers on how to change the parts based on above testing.

GE SpaceMaker washing machine does not stop filling.


try replacing your water selenoid coming in. remember it isnt a mechanical timer it is a computerized timer, so if the selenoid isnt the problem, it might be the computerized timer. computers are very finicky, pain in the a- -!

Pt, as long as you verified the lid switch is good, do this simple test. Get a piece of hose the same size as the one going to the pressure switch, connect it and blow into it. See if it starts agitating. If it does, there's your problem..Catriver post back.
