Question about Kenmore 23822 Top Load Washer
This washer is 18 years old and has never had a problem now it will fill but when the washer starts washing it will not stop filling. I can fill it manually with a hose and the washer works just fine everywhere else just will not stop filling by itself. any suggestions?
You need to replace the water valve. This is a common problem and a very easy fix. You can order the part at sears.com via model number and also see a breakdown of the machine and how to put it in.

Check the pressure switch and the pressure switch hose.
Remove the 2 screws that hold down the console. Pull slightly from the bottom of the console and flip it up. On the left side you should see the pressure switch (water level switch) with a few wires and a small hose connected to it. The hose should be connected between the pressure switch and the tub. In most cases the pressure switch hose sometimes falls off over time due to vibration.
Check the function of the pressure switch by attaching a small hose to it and blowing lightly into the pressure switch while the machine is filling. You should hear a click and the inlet water valve should turn off. If you don't hear a click or the water doesn't shut off, replace the pressure switch. Replace the pressure switch hose if it is damaged. If there are no visible holes or cracks in the hose, try trimming 1/4" off each end of the hose (pressure switch side and tub side) and reconnect them making sure to push hose ends securely onto connections. This is done because the hose sometimes stretches at the connection points and you will lose air pressure inside the switch, therefore the water will never shut off.
Alternatively you can use small clamps on each end.
If the machine fills even when it's in the off position replace the inlet water valve.
