Question about Kenmore 15864/15862 Top Load Washer
From other solutions it seems like the fill switch. Is there any specific instructions on how to access that? ie how to I remove the top cover? Also if I need to replace is there a part number?
pull off fill knob
remove plastic trims from front face ends of control panel exposing screws
remove phillips head screws from bottom
slide control panel forward & up ~1inch then flip over backwards on top hinges
to remove fill switch
depress lock tab right side where switch body touches back of control plate
rotate counter clockwishe 45-90 deg
withdraw fill switch
remove plastic tube from switch body
Blow any water out, should be empty when washer is empty messes up pressure sensing
refit plastic tube
adjustment screw is 1/8" hex head bolt next to knob shaft
clockwise raise water level
counter clockwise lower water level
can be operated in this open position to check operation, may have to move switch between fill positions to restart fill operation

Do you have the owner's manuals? The "Repair Parts List" shows the part numbers. On my series 80 it's 3366847. As far as being able to access it - good luck - if you take off the back you'll never get it back on right. There must be a way to get to it from the front panel.

The problem is the pressure switch has failed or the hose is plugged up, has a hole in it. These are usually inexpensive and are very easy to replace. Here is a video this will walk you thru testing and replacing a pressure switch. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.
