Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
We repaired the lid switch today and now tried to run a load. The lid switch works but for some reason the tub is over-filling. There seems to be no difference in Small-Medium-Large loads...any suggestions?
Did you tip the unit on its side or its back to change the switch? If so, then read on and I may have an idea for you: The water level is controlled by a small pipe that goes into the drum somewhere low down and leads up to a little bellows device (It looks like a spinning top, about 4 inches or so in diameter with a (usually clear plastic) pipe about the thickness of a pencil connected to it and 2 wires. The other end of the pipe is immersed in the water in the tub and as the water rises, so it slightly compresses the air in the pipe, operating the bellows device and throwing a power switch to isolate the water inlet valve. If you have tipped the unit on its side or back, a little water may have got into this pipe. With the water in the pipe, more water is required in the tub before the air in the pipe is compressed enough to operate the bellows. Find the unit, find the pipe, clear out any water in it and the chances are that you fix your problem.
