Machine will not stop filling with water.
Answer Hello Vicki. If you can stop the water from entering the machine by turning off the timer or unplugging the unit, you will need to look for a bad pressure hose or replace the pressure switch. If the only way to shut off the water is at the shut off for the water hoses, you will need to replace the water valve in the unit.
When I press button to start, water runs good. Pressure good but it still fill and not stop it cause overflow, unplug power it stop filling water or if i close the faucet water stop so any idea to fix it.
You will want to check the pressure hose and the air dome to ensure that they are properly connected with no holes or being clogged or kinked. If these check ok then you will need to replace the pressure switch W10335056.
My water won't stop filling up, so I pulled the water level selector out, but how do I check to see if it works? I blew into the switch but air does not go through it.
Answer Hello Scott,
You are supposed to blow through the hose back towards the tub. This clears any lint and soap build-up that could clog the hose to the pressure switch. If you blew very hard, I would be very reluctant to trust it as too much pressure will damage the water level switch.
Now to troubleshoot your issue, reassemble the unit and start it filling with water. While it's filling, unplug the unit from the wall receptacle. If the water doesn't stop until you turn off the faucet, the water inlet valve is bad. If it turns the water off when you unplug it from the wall receptacle and the unit is full, you have a bad pressure switch.
