The water does NOT cut off when it reaches the required water level and the water has to be turned off manually.

Would also like to find a Manual for this machine.

Thanks and have a GREAT Day!!!

There is a vacuum hose hooked to your water level adjuster. If that hose falls off, which it sometimes does because there is no hose clamp, the washing machine will not know how high the water is and will continue to fill. I found this out after starting my wash before bed and waking up at 6:00 to ankle deep puddles all over my house.
the fix: open the gauge panel by taking off the plastic covers on each side and unscrewing the bolts under the covers (one per side) then the gauge panel will rotate up and allow you access to the hose and other gauges
if the hose is still clamped on check for holes in it and if no holes then you may want to replace the leveler guage

Where is the reset button for a kenmore 80 washer wont stop filling water level


If this is a top loader then the vacuum line has come off of the dashpot or the water level switch is broken. UNPLUG the power-Standing in front of the washer, pry off the plastic trim strips on the left and right of the dash (control panel) Now you'll see a screw at the bottom where the strips mounted, remove ans KEEP the screws, now the dash will lift up and fold back, giving access to the parts.

Try eserviceinfo.com/index as per your 80 series. There are various downloads there that may help access the water level sensor which is most likely the problem.

Have a kenmore 80 series washer that does not cut off water after tub has reach it's level and overflows


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.


It sounds like a defective Water level Switch:

See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

Also see the following for how to access the console.

Water not cutting off at full level and leaking-Kenmore washer 80


The water lever sensor/switch is not working and needs to be replaced. IT has a air tube that senses the water lever by pressure. It the tube is clear then the switch needs replaciing,, If they is a clog, clear it and retry before replacing it.

The washer is filling with water but not stopping @ it's right cycle. It overflowed last night. If you could help it would be greatly appreciated. Kenmore 80 series


Check the water level switch. This diaphragm like device has a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level rises, so does the pressure on the air in the tube, and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to turn off the water and signals the timer to start the appropriate cycle. Look for any damage to the tube and make sure it has no obstructions in it. The switch can be tested for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity indicates a bad switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore 80 Series - water wont fill to full load


remove edge decore trims from left and right side front of control panel8b608f8.jpg
remove phillips screws from bottom corners of contol panel
remove knob from water level selector
raise control panel ~1 inch then flip over backwords on pivots
depress lock tab on right/underside of water level control body where it touches metal mount plate
rotate water level control body 45deg anti clockwise
pull body off
top side of body next to knob shaft is 1/8 hex head bolt
turn clockwise to rais water level
anticlockwise to lower water level
machine can be operated with this part not fitted so can check level. fill, adjust screw, fill will start again, adjust screw, until water level is correct
reinstall in reverse order
Incidentally, the cause is a VERY small wire spring inside the control body that is not really up to the task, and stretches over years.
Its a common occurrence, and I make this repair, on callouts, no parts required, couple times a month you may have to flip the switch to reset to get the water to restart filling
