Kenmore washer model 1102781269 over fills

My kenmore top loading washer is over filling on every size load. The water level switch has been replaced, but it is still over filling. What could be the cause of the washer over filling especially when it worked perfectly in the same wash cycle?

Possible that the settings of the water level sensor is too high, you need to short the switch and see if the inlet flow stops. if not there are issues with the main controller unit.

Check out this you tube. Had the same problem today. Tipped washer on its side and replaced coupler between motor and gearbox. Parts are about $15
This is a good diagnosis video.

SOURCE: kenmore washer...the water just runs it never fills up.

I have seen this problem numerous times on service calls. It sounds like you have a siphoning problem. The key symptom is the wash tub that continously attempts to fill, but cannot achieve the proper water level. This is often caused by not having an air gap on your drain line, improper placement of the drain hose, or a standpipe that is too small in diameter. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

If you place the drain hose in the standpipe too far, or seal the top of the standpipe, this can cause a vacuum which will cause the symptoms you describe. A tell-tale sign will be a sucking noise as you pull the drain hose from the standpipe. Read through the link I provided. If this does not correct your problem please post back and let me know before you rate this solution. This way I can try to assist you further. I hope this corrects your problem.

SOURCE: Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

SOURCE: top load Kenmore 800 washer will not fill with water

OK - I have a solution to my problem with this washing machine. Nothing would work except for one of the spin cycles. I thought it was the main switch - the cycle selection and start switch - but I was wrong. The service tech replaced the switch behind the fabric softener. It's the switch that controls the water levels. Part # W10292584. Our government is forcing the manufacturers to put controls on the washing machine to save water. It's a bad idea and is causing lots of problems. Tech says he's replacing them on a regular basis. Less than $100 if you do it yourself. Hope this helps.

FILLS WITH WATER THEN NOTHING


There is a water level sensor switch inside the washer. This sensor
needs replacing. It tells the washer to start running when the level
of water reaches the correct amount for you load size.
You will need to call a service repair man to change the sensor.

The problem is quiet obvious and it is the water level pressure switch behind and connected to the load size switch knob. The pressure switch is stuck in the full position that's why the machine doesn't fill and it goes directly to agitate. Holding the load size switch in between load sizes releases the contacts from full position and allow the machine to fill as long as the switch is held on.

Disconnect power then release the console from the top of the cabinet depending on the model of your machine then pull forward and up on the console and lay it back on the hinges.

My kenmore 22442100 top load washer will not stop filling I have to watch it and manually stop water and advance timer past fill cycle please help advise.


your load select switch, has a hose connected to it, it goes to the bottom of tub. This tells water to shut off when it reaches desired water level for load size you selected. This hose gets clogged with soap, you have to open area where switch is, take hose off of switch and blow it out. This should solve your problem. If it does not, then load selector switch should be replaced. I am going with first solution, more common. Thanks

The first thing seems to be the timer,or the water level switch. Try filling the washer with water by hand, if it starts to agitate after being filled its the timer, if not it is the water level switch, let me know if you need further assistance.

Kenmore washer only will fill to a small load water level


This is Joyce
This is your water sensor, it is going off before it lets the machine fill up, if not this then the control on your machine that determines the size load you selected. go to kenmore.com download your manuel. see what you can find out about the machine.
let me know if you need any other assistance
thanks

Kenmore 80 Series - water wont fill to full load


remove edge decore trims from left and right side front of control panel8b608f8.jpg
remove phillips screws from bottom corners of contol panel
remove knob from water level selector
raise control panel ~1 inch then flip over backwords on pivots
depress lock tab on right/underside of water level control body where it touches metal mount plate
rotate water level control body 45deg anti clockwise
pull body off
top side of body next to knob shaft is 1/8 hex head bolt
turn clockwise to rais water level
anticlockwise to lower water level
machine can be operated with this part not fitted so can check level. fill, adjust screw, fill will start again, adjust screw, until water level is correct
reinstall in reverse order
Incidentally, the cause is a VERY small wire spring inside the control body that is not really up to the task, and stretches over years.
Its a common occurrence, and I make this repair, on callouts, no parts required, couple times a month you may have to flip the switch to reset to get the water to restart filling

Washer will not fill


I had a problem almost like yours. The hose attached to the load size switch had a clog in it, and the washer wouldn't fill with water or spin. Will need to take the front panal off to check the whole line.
