My kenmore elite HE3 washer keeps filling up with water


This problem is commonly attributed to a water inlet valve leaking by or a pressure switch malfunction. The following link explains how to diagnose the problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3753262-front_load_washer_fills_when_not_in_use

If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, the water inlet valve can clog with sediment, rust, or calcified deposits over time causing the valve not to close properly. This can cause leak by when not in use.

The pressure switch has a small air hose attached that, if it has any holes in it, will cause the pressure switch to malfunction. This can also result in a washer that fills when not in use, but will also cause the washer to overfill in most cases.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you need further assistance. I have included parts resources and procedures on how to replace each part in the link. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
