I recently had my machine serviced and the tub was sitting crooked and noisy as hell after it was put back together. I opened up the machine and looked at the bottom of the tub and the part where the springs are attached. The triangular tray in between the tub and the frame shifted while the machine was on its side. The tray is meant to center the tub on the frame and has some plastic bushings on the three corners. Tilt the machine back a bit, put something under the frame of the machine so it doesn't come down on you. If you know how, take off the agitator and have someone lift up on the tub an inch or two while you reposition the tray. The tray will fit only one way, but it can come loose while the tub is lifted up a bit and properly aligned. Look for some bushings or plastic spaces on the corners of the tray. Once I centered the tray and stood the machine back up straight, the tub was centered properly and runs like a champ.

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 Kenmore series 80 washer does not fill up all the way with water even when it is on full load.

on most top load washer the level of water should be no more tha 13 inches of water on a empty tub.the rule of thumb is there should be between two to three holes visible above the water line

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!

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:
