The hot/cold water fill solenoid might be stuck open.  Try banging on it lightly with a hammer and if that doesn't loosen it, replace it.

Kenmore Washer only leaking from one area

Ive never worked on a Kenmore but it may just be the overflow outlet. All washing machines have an overflow which will dump water out from the top of the tub if it overfills but sometimes on high fill water level, clothes can splash around and cause a "wave" of water to splash out over the overflow outlet. Check to see if the leak only occurs when you have selected high level fill.

Kenmore washing maching overflow after washing

The pressure switch, also called the water level switch, is what control the amount of water goes in the machine, If your machine is constantly filling to the overflow point, then that is your problem. Now, if water is going in and the level is staying the same then your machine drain line is lower than the pump and your siphoning out the water as it goes in. Pull the drain up a little a that should fix the problem.

Water wont cut off

Does the water run if you push the timer dial in to stop the cycle or does it run even if you unplug the washer?

Water dose not stop runing and go into wash mode

Does your washer constantly attempt to fill and never does? Or, does the washer continue to fill and overflow?

If the washer is constantly trying to fill, but your water level does not change, you may have a condition known as siphoning. Siphoning occurs when you don't have a proper air gap on the drain line and the washer will actually drain as it attempts to fill. The following link explains:

If your washer fills, won't shut off and then overflows, this is caused by either a pressure switch malfuction, or a water inlet valve that won't shut off. The following link explains how to diagnose the problem:

I know the link is for a problem where the washer continues to fill even when it is not in use, but this problem occurs while the washer is running as well. The method of determing the cause is the same. In many cases, an overflow problem is caused by the air hose slipping off the pressure switch. Without the air hose, the pressure switch never detects the pressure differntial from the wash tub as it fills and won't shut off.

Read through the links provided and let me know if you have any questions. If the conditions I have described do not match your symptoms, please post back and elaborate a bit more so I can help you determine the source of the problem. Please include your complete MODEL NUMBER. I hope you find this information helpful.

Top loading kenmore washing machine frozen water loaded

Could it be that it has overheated? My mom's washing machine isn't a kenmore, but it has a mechanism that causes it to stall when it is overheated from constant use. After about 15 minutes it cools off and starts again.

Washer water wont stop running and switch to wash. It overflowed

sounds like a bad water valve. Try disconnecting for a few minutes. If problem continues, the solenoid on the water valve is staying open which means the circuit is not opening. Replace valve.

Water was overflowing over the top and flooding the laundry room

If it was left in the reset position then it could absolutely pushed the diaphragm in the air switch to a point that the contactor couldn't reach it. Set it on a large load, let it fill and watch it. If it starts to overflow, pull the plug out, if it continues filling, you need a new water valve on the washing machine and if it stops then you need a new level switch

Hope this helps ...... F09 is a Overflow Condition If the Overflow contact on the pressure switch is Closed for more than 60 seconds an Overflow condition will occur. In an Overflow condition, the Door will remain locked, and the Drain Pump will run constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the Display is cleared. Unplug the unit to service. Potential Causes ? Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked ? Check Wire Harness connections to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU) ? Check/ Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects ? Check for Drain Pump Failure ? Check the Inlet Valve for proper shut off ? Check the Pressure switch for proper operation PLEASE rate my solution
