Remove the hose to the sensor switch at the tub end and check for obstruction. The small container on the side of the tub may be clogged. Clean with a small drill or piece of wire.

SOURCE: Washing machine wont stop filling up

check hose to water level switch, if it has had an out of balance situation it can loosen or detach hose. replace hose firmly back on switch or replace hose if that doesn't work.

SOURCE: Filling With Water

Set the water level selector to a lower level. The sensor will always work if the water level is much higher than the trigger level. However, the "much higher" condition is never reached if the water is about to overflow.

SOURCE: Hotpoint Washing Machine Model # VBXR1060T4WB Filling Problem

problem could be the pressure stat which is a switch which detects water level or the pipe leading up to this switch or the air chamber the pipe goes to.
take top off. locate the pressure switch - has a small diameter pipe going to it. remove pipe and fit a similiar one. put on fill and pressurise this pipe by mouth and water fill should stop. if it doesn't, then switch is faulty.
if this is ok, examine carefully the small diameter pipe for splits and blockage. also check the air chamber for build up of gunge

Hotpoint aq7L149i washing machine flashing lights ?


Hi Jason.
The most likely reason for your problem is that the water inlet valve is faulty. This is why the machine won't fill.
It is a simple fix for a serviceman.
Good luck.

Water keeps filling up the drum and inlet light flashes


either the inlet water valve is bad and needs to be replaced or the controller for it is not cutting off the electricty to it, If you are going to replace something, replace the water inlet solenoid valve.

Machine fills w/water quits flashes lb? lz?


There is a water pressure switch that operates when the required water fills in the tub. this pressure switch in your machine is possibly faulty. In ur case the water keeps filling then it detects an error and stops that's when the lights start flashing. the pressure switch fails to detect the amount of water in the drum and so the machine doesn't move on to the next cycle
