If you find that your cloth washing machine is overfilling, the problem may be related to faulty water-inlet valve or water-level switch. If you follow the steps given below, we believe that you will be able to resolve your cloth washer problem with little to no money.

  1. 1 Repair it free: Find if you have warranty for your washing machine. If you bought your cloth washer within one year, it is most likely that you have warranty. Most appliance manufacturers provide one year free warranty. If you have warranty, call the company and get your washing machine fixed. If you do not have warranty and do not want to spend too much money, you will have to spend some time to identity and possibly fix the problem. The steps below will guide you through the process of identifying and fixing the problem.
  2. 2 Water-inlet valve: At the end of the water filling cycle, the power to the water-inlet valve is shut off. If the water-inlet valve does not shut off completely when the electricity is cut off, the valve will often cause water to seep into the tub. This will lead to substantial water accumulation. In this case, the water-inlet valve needs to be replaced. Call a qualified appliance repair technician to replace it.
  3. 3 Water-level switch: The water-level switch monitors the water level during filling cycle and signals the water to turn off when it is fully filled. If the water-level switch is defective or obstructed by something, it can not send signal to stop filling. This results in overflow. In general, the water-level switch is a diaphragm device with a clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the outer tub. The air pressure in the tube increases with the rise in water level in the inner tub. The water level in the tub and the air pressure are proportional if there is no obstruction in the tube. If there is any obstruction in the tube, the pressure build up in the tube slows down. So, when the tub is fully filled, the air pressure in the tube remains lower than the expected correct pressure. This leads to continuous water filling because there is no signal to shut off water. Depending on the defect, you may need to clear the obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch. Call a qualified appliance service technician to clear the tube or replace the water-level switch.
