You either have a water inlet valve that is leaking by and filling the tub slowly overnight. Or, you may have a siphoning issue that is causing water to be back fed from the drain line. Here's how to determine:

Shut your water taps off when not in use and monitor for several days. If the tub remains dry, then you know you have a water SOURCE problem. If the water fills the tub with the water taps turned off, you have a DRAIN problem.

If you need to replace the water inlet valve, follow these steps:

1. Turn off the water taps and UNPLUG the washer.
2. Remove the water inlet hoses from the back of the washer.
3. Remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off.
4. The water inlet valve is located in the left rear of the washer (as viewed from the front). Remove the dispenser hoses from the inlet valve and the electrical connections.
5. Remove the mounting screws that hold the valve in place and it will come out of the machine.
6. Reinstall new valve in the reverse order of the steps I provided to you.

If you believe you may have a siphoning problem, the following link explains what siphoning is and how to correct it:

You should be able to select a soak cycle without having to turn off the water supply, but it may time out eventually and drain the tub. This p[events oversoaking the clothes

The washer will not fill all the wayto the top.yourmachine is functioning properly.when you have an empty tub and put it on super load and fill it up there should be 12 to 14 inches of water in the tub. that is the normal operating settings for your washer.

Set it going, fills up ok, goes through washing cycle but after spinning and then filling up for next cycle it overflows


Rather hard to understand your problem from the wording in the question but what I understand to be the case is that your tub fills up with water and overflows after the cycle is finished. Perhaps overnight water slowly fills the tub. This is due to the water inlet valve not shutting off all the way. The Inlet valve assembly needs to be replaced.

I have a Sears Kenmoore Series 70 model 100 washing maching. It's 14 years old. The problem is it will not dran water into the machine when I start my laundry. It goes directly into agitation. No water...


The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

Washing Machine Keeps Filling with Water through Detergent dispen


This machine has a water valve that works on vaccuum from the tub. You will see a small clear hose that runs from the side of the tub up to this valve. This valve is adjustable to change the water level in the tub to desired setting on some machines, but if it goes bad, it will not shut off, thus overflowing the tub. Find this valve and replace it if adjustment does not work.

Portable washer is getting water but the tub isnt filling up


Sorry to tell you this but this machine probably has a hole in the tub (the plastic part). The basket (the part you refer to) is fine, but to replace the tub, it isn't economical. You will probably have to get another machine.
