Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
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.
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:

Here is the pressure switch hose:

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)
