I had the same problem with a 90 series and there is a small hose connected to the water level knob that had slipped off.

I have seen both bad water level switches and pinched or clogged hoses connected to the level switch. The top of the washer may have to be removed if it is not accessible from the back.

How do I check and replace the water level sensor on my Kenmore 80 Series Hvy Dty Washer?

Try 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,

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 top loader washer overflows

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.

    Kenmore 80 series overflow

    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:
