Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3t Front Load Washer
Kenmore Elite HE3 washing machine about 4 years old will sometimes fill with water after end of cyle and machine has turned off. Sometimes water does not continue to flow into the washer but when it does, it just keeps running and will overflow. Sometimes it is just a drip or sometimes its a steady flow. We are on a private well and the pressure is set at low-50 & high-70. According to the manual pressure range can be between 20-100 so this should not be causing the problem. We thought at first it might be sand getting stuck somewhere in the machine but we had a sand filter installed 6 months ago which did not solve the problem. Does anyone know if there is a pressure switch/valve that shuts off the water flow inside the machine which could be broken?
Carmel, I've seen this a number of times on the HE3, you are going to have to replace the water inlet valve. Since it's filling after the end of the wash the pressure switch is not going to detect the fill. The valve is not closing properly. If you post the model number I can give you the part number. It's an easy fix, remove the top and the valve is right there. If you need any assistance in changing it you can email me at email@example.com Catriver..post back.
