Chosen Solution

Water Inlet Valve

How it Works:

Try shutting off power to the washer. If the washer still overflows even when it is not getting power, this indicates that the water inlet valve is defective. If the water inlet valve is defective, replace it.

Pressure Switch

How it Works:

The pressure switch shuts off power to the water inlet valve when the proper water level is reached. If the pressure switch fails, the water inlet valve will continue to fill the washer tub with water, causing the washer to overflow. Before replacing the pressure switch, check the air tube to the pressure switch to ensure that it is clear of debris and is not leaking.
