    After working on it last night I lifted the control panel. I immediately saw that the vacuum hose from the Water Fill Level was disconnected. I connected that and the problem was solved.

It will not be a sensor,,,it will be what is called a "Ball **** valve" and they are pretty cheap to replace.
This same valve is in your toilet tank.

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.

My Sears series 80 washer fills till it is overflowing and doesnt shut off water flow, it was overflowing onto floor this morning, it is full to the rim now, and wont drain or do anything when it is turned...


The usual arrangement is there are 2 electrical water inlet valves, one for Hot and 1 for Cold. These valves are turned on by the timer, and remain on until the water level switch turns them on, and allows the washer to then run. It sounds like this water level switch is bad. This switch should be in the panel above the top of the washer, and has a rubber/plastic tube that goes toward the washer drum. It is also possible that the rubber tube is off or blocked. (if the water inlet valve is stuck open, turning the washer off will NOT stop the water).

Good Luck,
Bill

Kenmore 80 series won't agitate


You will need to check you water level switch. Sound like it is bad or has something clogging it. You can test it like this. Find the tube that runs from the back of the level switch down to the outer tub. Unplug it from the tub. Now turn machine on so that it will start to fill. Now blow pressure into the tube. If it does not cut the water off, you have a bad switch. I would think it's bad. I see them about 5 ir 6 times a week.
Please rate solution if helpful.

Kenmore 80 series washer doesn't stop filling up with water


Almost went and bought a switch until I widened by search for "kenmore washer 80 series overflow" and came up with this:

Turns out that a couple weeks ago, I had a really unbalanced load that probably shook off the tubing. Anyhow, saved me a trip to the supply store AND cost. Thanks to the original poster!

Kenmore 80 Series will not fill up with water


if your washer will agitate when set to fill but not fill, then your pressure switch is bad.
also you may want to check and see if you are getting both hot and cold to your washer.

Ok, it sounds either your hose from the water level pressure switch has come off or broke, or the pressure switch itself is bad.

Check the pressure switch hose first.

My tubing came loose and I just duct taped it back on and it works perfectly.

You would need to open your console as shown here:

Pull forward and up on the console and you can hinge it open and hanging from the hinges.

Here is your water level pressure switch:
