Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washer not filling up with water at beginning of cycle.

I have a Kenmore 80 Series washer and dryer and when it rains it pours. I recently encountered a problem with the water level switch, I would set the switch for a large load and it would disburse enough water for a small load, after awhile when I went to set the cycle for the load instead of filling up with water at the start it would instantly go into agitating stage. I would have to figit with the water level switch to get the water started at the beginning of the cycle. Do I need to replace just the water level switch or both switches? I am now at the point where I can not get the water to start at all. Can you help us out? Thanks.

Don't replace anything. You will need to clean out the tube which connects the water level switch to the tub. (or replace that tube)

    I'd suggest to do this: Unplug machine. Open backsplash and remove end of hose from water level switch. Use a turkey baster with a short hose on it to connect to the hose on the washer and force hot bleach water through the hose. Re-attach hose to water level switch, close up backsplash, plug machine in, test, and re-rate free solution to a Fix-Ya.

I have a Kenmore 80 series washer it will not stop filling with water so it wont go into agitate cycle, help


Has your drain for your washer backed up recently? Or is the drain hose from the washer sealed into the drain pipe, meaning that you can't just lift the hose out anymore? There needs to be air around the drain hose or it will cause the washer to allow water to be siphened threw the drain by not closing the filling valve. This can also happen if your drain is backed up. Rooter the drain out and make sure that the drain hose is not sealed up to the drain pipe and see if that fixes your problem.

Does not fill


Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid.
Hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore 80 Series top loading washer--will not stop filling with water at the beginning of the wash cycle and for the rinse cyle. Is there an easy fix or should I purchase a new washer? How much can I


The pressure switch is failed - remove the tube from inside the top console area and blow it out. If you're lucky it will again work - with no charge.
