Most Frequent Causes for Washer overflowing

Cause 1Water Inlet Valve

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.

Water Inlet Valve - Part # 1862767 Mfg Part # W10364988

Cause 2Low Water Pressure from House Supply

The water pressure to the water inlet valve might be too low. The water inlet valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to shut off properly. If the water inlet valve does not get enough pressure, the valve may not close fully after the power is shut off. As a result, water can leak into the washer and cause it to overflow. Check the water pressure to determine if it is sufficient.
