Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

Kenmore 80 series overflow

I purchased a Kenmore 80 Series in December 2005.  Six months later while we were away for 48 hours, the washer started filling itself, overflowed the tub and flooded the entire house.  I 'chalked' it up to a freak accident.  Recently, the same thing happened again flooding the house again.  
Are there any known problems with this series of Kenmore washers?
model # 110.26852502 serial # cs3306909
The unit still works properly, and runs through its cycle with out any problems. What could possibly be the problem (electronics, valves, regulators, pressure surges, power surges, paranormal activity, etc.).
Please Help!  Thanks.

    I am having the same type of problem...my kenmore washer overflowed in 2006 and the Sears repairman came and couldn't find a problem and told me the machine was safe to use. Then in October 2008 the machine overflowed again, causing substantial damage to my home. Now the Sears repairman say they can't locate the problem...they can't find anything wrong with the machine, and it isn't overflowing. HELP! I can't afford another $5000 worth of damage!

Ok, it sounds either your hose from the water level pressure switch has come off or broke, or the pressure switch itself is bad.

Check the pressure switch hose first.

My tubing came loose and I just duct taped it back on and it works perfectly.

You would need to open your console as shown here:

Pull forward and up on the console and you can hinge it open and hanging from the hinges.

Here is your water level pressure switch:

Faulty valve would let water in.(never shut completly), and trickle in water very slowly.best way to avoid flood until problem is found is to shut water suppply between uses( not a bad habit to get into)

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:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1206464-kenmore_80_series_overflow

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!

Kenmore 80 Series top loader washer overflows


It will not be a sensor,,,it will be what is called a "Ball **** valve" and they are pretty cheap to replace.
This same valve is in your toilet tank.

Kenmore 80 series overflowed!!!


The most common cause for this is the water mixing valve plunger sticking. the fix is to replace the mixing valve. Not so common is a defective water level pressure switch. Same fix, replace the switch. Really rare is a small leak in the tube from the tub to the pressure switch.
