Kenmore Washer/Dryer Combo Model # 11088752792

Occasionally, when I begin to load the washer with clothes, there is already about an inch of water in the tub.
The tub was empty - no water - at the completion of the wash just before these incidents.
I do not hear water running. I do not know where this water comes from.
Would appreciate your help.

The problem is usually attrbuted to leak-by on your Water Inlet Valve (also known as a "Mixing Valve" on some models). The valve can become clogged or corroded with rust and sediment over time and not seal completely when shut off. This is especially true if you live in areas where you have hard water, or use well water. If the diaphragm inside the valve does not seat correctly, this will cause leak by. It may be very minute, but will become noticeable over a period of time. The washer does not have to be turned on for this to occur. You can try to remove the valve and clean it thoroughly to see if this will help, but if you are going to to go the route of removing the valve, it would make better sense to simply replace it instead of having to possibly go through the process twice. A replacement valve can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Washer Cabinet" heading for item number 5 (part #285805). This is a fairly simple repair that is also inexpensive. To replace:

1. UNPLUG the appliance and shut off the water at the water taps.
2. Disconnect the fill hoses from the back of the washer.
3. Remove the panel directly above the washer top.
4. Remove the washer top panel.
5. The fill valve will be located in the left rear (as viewed from the front) behind the wash tub.
6. Remove the dispenser hose and electrical connectors from the water inlet valve.
7. Remove the mounting screws that hold the valve to the rear panel.
8. Reinstall new valve using the above steps in reverse order.

The repair is pretty straight forward. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS In the interim, to keep the tub from filling up with water, shut of the taps when not in use. This may buy you some time until you are able to replace the valve.

Whirlpool model 110.88752792 dryer runs but does not heat


Concerning the Kenmore 11088752792 model where the dryer spins but does not heat. I had that problem a few years ago with the same model.

I replaced the fuse (part No. 3399849 about $10.00) and the thermostat (part no 3398128 about $25.00). Dryer worked fine the first try.

FYI. Today, I'm searching for what makes the dryer squeak when I came across your issue (though 6 months since you posted, but I figure there are other Kenmore stack-able owners out there searching for a fix). I haven't taken the dryer apart yet but have ordered the dryer belt, rollers, pulley (a package deal with RepairClinic) and the felt bearing/seal. May as well do a full replacement of the likely components that are causing the squeaks and not spend any more time going through trial and error repairs.

If you haven't already, the dogs on your agitator are probably due for replacement as well. RepairClinic has an agitator package deal with replacement dogs and seals.

looks to me that you have eather coins, yes,coins traped in the electric water pump mostly a quarter blocking the inlet of pump or a piece or clothing from the hose that comes from the bottom of the OUTER TUB to the PUMP. if not you may have a faulty pump.

good luck to you.

My Kenmore 22642 washer is leaving lint all over the clothes. If i run them through the dryer, that will remove the lint... but some of my clothes don't go through the dryer. I can't seem to determine if...


Wash clothes separately whites and light colors together. Darks with liquid detergent. No lint filter on the machine. I have found some powder detergents do not dissolve completely.

Water not filling on washer


the inlet filter is probably clogged restricted and/or inhibited flow of water into your machine.
These things happen, and cleaning out the filter is a good first step to finding the problem.

Cold water pours in during final spin


No - the timer is the likely suspect.
