Beko WMB714422W - keeps filling with water but stops when turned off

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My washing machine keeps filling with water when on any program including spin and drain. On a wash cycle it will fill up and then drain and end the cycle early without going through the washing cycle.

On spin and drain it will keeps filling water via the drawer but does spin and drain. I can stop at the end and remove the clothes fine but if left it continues to fill up again and drain etc.

If I turn the machine off then it stops. From my research this is likely to be an issue with the water inlet valve or a problem with the pressure system.

I have checked the hose on the pressure sensor and this seems fine. I have also blown down it into the pressure chamber and can hear the water bubbling.

Do you think I need to replace the pressure sensor or do you think it is more likely a problem with the water inlet valve and this needs replacing instead?

Or any other idea?

thanks in advance

Andy

Hello Andy. I don't see how it could be the pressure system if the washing machine is filling on spin. The pressure system is only involved when the washing machine wants to fill up with water. Then it dictates the amount of water that goes into the machine. On the spin cycle the pressure system only monitors and notifies when all of water has gone. If a fault occurs they are then the washing machine won't spin because it thinks it is still full of water. This is completely opposite to the fault you have got.

If the water stops going in when the washing machine is turned off then that rules out a faulty water valve. If it starts to fill with water as soon as the washing machine is powered up but before a cycle is started it would seem to imply that the water valve in question has got a live and neutral supply when it shouldn't have. I know the earth faults and low installation faults can cause some strange behaviour.

If the water valve only started taking water once a cycle has been selected and started then it seems like for some reason the valve is being switched on when it shouldn't. This isn't the kind of fault that is likely to be easy to solve. I would recommend getting an engineer.
