SOURCE: water keeps draining

You may be experiencing what is known as "siphoning".  If you have your drain hose shoved too far down in the drain standpipe, or if you have the top of the standpipe opening sealed off, sometimes it creates a vacuum and will cause the washer to drain constantly drain.  You need an air gap in order to prevent this.  Double check your drain hoses for the following:

1. Make sure the hose is only placed in the standpipe about 3 to 4 inches.  If it is sitting so far down in the pipe that it is resting in the trap where all the water is it will siphon.

2. Check the opening around the top of the standpipe where the hose rests.  Makes sure there is still an air gap around the hose.  That is, make sure the hose isn't seated so tight that it seals off the standpipe completely.  This will cause siphoning.

3. Make sure you haven't placed anything around the standpipe opening.  Many people will wrap old towels or wash cloths around the opening in order to prevent overflows and odors coming back up through the pipe.  In doing so, they often inadvertently seal off the standpipe and cause a siphoning problem.

Last of all, the standpipe should be about 36 inches from the floor.  If your drain line is sitting too low it can also cause siphoning issues.

I know I'm keying in on this drain line issue quite a bit here.  There are some other things that can cause water levels in a washer to drop, but you mentioned nothing about any leaks and this is the most common problem.  You will know for sure if you pull the drain hose out of the standpipe and suddenly hear a sucking noise.  This is air being reintroduced through the drain line.  I hope you find this information helpful.

SOURCE: Kenmore 90 series top loader washer water level.

There are easy checks before you replace the level selector body

remove the trim plates at both ends of the control panel to expose Phillips head screws 1 at each end. remove the screws
lift and swing the control panel up and over the back, it is hinged at the top.
The washer can be operated in this condition for testing

1 Rremove the air hose, and blow it out.
often water remains in the tube after changing levels, the water is not compressible so a small change in water level in the tank, makes too much difference in the sensor.
reconnect the tube and try a cycle ~1/3 chance of fixing it

If fail,
2 The spring inside Kenmore water level sensors that reacts to air pressure in the tube is not up to the job and stretches, not noticeable till changing water level settings moves the anchor point of the spring.
pull off water level knob from control panel front, from control panel back depress lock tab at right of level selector body rotate counter clockwise 45 deg and remove
adjacent to selector knob shaft is 1/8inch nut, turn clockwise to raise water level counter-clockwise to lower water level, test, adjust, test adjust ~1/2chance of fixing it

If fail
replace level selector body

SOURCE: kenmore washer 3.5 super capacity. Machine spins

It sounds like your tub bearing is bad or going bad. It could be the adjustment on your spin cycle. Does your unit allow you to adjust this. Also are you overloading. Can you send me the brand and model of your unit and I help you more.

    What does the code nd mean on an apartment size front loading stackable kenmore washing machine mean


    ND, I would suggest means no drain. If the machine is full of water, it wont let you open the door. Put the drain hose into a bucket to drain the water out and turn off the machine, after a few minutes, the door should unlock. Check the pump or the pump inlet hose for blockages.
