Help! My Washing Machine is Overflowing!

Although this isn’t technically a maintenance issue, I thought we should address this common problem.  Your washing machine fills up with water but instead of starting the agitator cycle it just keeps filling right?  Leaving you feeling like Noah without the Ark!  Unfortunately, this is usually caused by a defective water level control switch and we recommend that you have a qualified washing machine repair technician replace it with a working model, thankfully it just so happens that we are experts at this particular problem.  =)

Of course, we do want to give you a tip since this is the tips section so we will point out that you can now purchase and install a flood stop system for your washer that will prevent a flood from happening if something goes wrong with your water level switch.

Here are a couple of links you might find useful:

And if you don’t want to install it yourself just give us a call at (480) 983-7675 and we will be happy to install it for you.
