Got this problem with the washer: I'll start a normal wash cycle and it appears to progress normally. With about 4 minutes left in the wash cycle it starts to fill again. It will continue to fill during the drain, spin,rinse, etc., cycles until we physically turn off the water supply.

 

Is there any solution other than replacing the timer?

 

Thanks!

Is it siphoning? Simple test:

fill the tub with water no clothes in it. Dosent have to be maximum water level, just half full or so.

Now just advance timer to spin mode and start it draining for about 20 seconds or so.

Now push the timer knob in to stop the drain pump there should still be some water in the tub.

Now go outside and have a cigarette or whatever In Colorado you can twist up a fatty.

When you have returned, is there still water in the tub or has it all drained out??.

A great  number of seasoned technicians have been fooled by this. Myself included.

Be sure to rule it out before you go ordering parts.Good luck.

  While siphoning can cause washer to begin filling during wash cycle, IF water level has dropped to the point that the water level switch resets to empty position, it cannot cause this during drain or spin as timer fill contacts are open during this period except for the brief spray at beginning of first spin. If it's filling during drain and/or spin, as stated, the timer is defective.
