It sounds like it's the timer.

A lot of KNOBS or TIMERS just get to much gunk in the circuits in them!

With the OLD TIMERS you could open it up and spray it with a can of electrical cleaner (same as they sell for computers) and a lot of the time it would fix the problem!
This should also work on your circuit boards in a new appliance just be sure to read and follow the directions carefully!
Open up & expose the timer control knob circuits, brush off as much dust and lint as possible by hand then spray with ELECTRICAL CLEANER as directed ON THE CAN and try running it again!

I always try this first as the cost is low and it often works!

I recommend Radio Shack for advice & purchase!
Cost about $10.

Good Luck!

The water level switch shuts the water off when it gets to the desired amount. Also change the water level to low and see if it stops at different level.

Kenmore 80 series washing machine - won't stop filling with water on rinse cycle - never moves to next cycle - if I stop machine and manually move to spin, the machine does spin and the water drains


Your air pressure tube going to the water level switch is pinched or stopped up,OR, the water level switch is going bad.
Use this manual to access these parts and diagnose which is bad.

Stops in the middle of wash cycle


Hi!

If the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Doesnot stop filling water


To javed_iqb904, does the drum actually fill or does it seem like that water is draining out as it's filling?


To neonllama19, if it fills with the tap on and the machine off, it sounds like a defective water valve. If it never stopped filling it sounds like a defective pressure switch or hose to the pressure switch is loose or diconnected.
