Kenmore model 80 fill problem

All of a sudden our washer over filled on startup. I drained the tub and cleaned up the mess only to try again. It apeared that the timer was not advancing, so I bought a new timer and installed only to have the same issue. I removed the clear vinal hose to the water fill switch and blew through it to make sure it was clear, and reatached it to the control. The timer is moving but still over fills.

Hi there,

this problem is the water level switch is not sensing the water and that is the reason for the overfill. i would recommend replacing the switch.

Keeps filling with water, but draining at the same time!


be sure your drain is nearly to the top of the washer if it is you may need to try a siphon break

Kenmore 80 series washer doesn't stop filling up with water


Almost went and bought a switch until I widened by search for "kenmore washer 80 series overflow" and came up with this:

Turns out that a couple weeks ago, I had a really unbalanced load that probably shook off the tubing. Anyhow, saved me a trip to the supply store AND cost. Thanks to the original poster!

GOES TO SPIN CYCLE THEN STOPS SUDDENLY AND REFILLS WATER IN TUB


Are you sure you don't have a second rinse button that is selected.

    Kenmore 80 series leaking


    well you can try filling the outer tub separately.with what you mentioned, the problem is certainly not with the drain hose or the pump. fill the tub separately with some water and if the leak is seen then the problem is certainly with the outer tub corrosion or crack on it.
