Hi, if the dishwaser was off and the water kept filling, you need to replace the water inlet valve located behind the lower kick plate. Please let me know if I can assist further. The part is available on my web site www.whirlpoolpartssurplus.com

The water inlet valve has gone bad. Depending on what the water was either hot or cold I would be safe and just replace both of them. You can get them at your local appliance store or at repairclinic.com. They are located behind the back panel of the washing machine right where the hoses connect to the unit

I have a kenmore ultra fabric care 80 series washing machine.. it will not stop filling up with water.. I have to turn off the water or it will over flow. it is very used machine... Please Help...


most likely a problem with the diaphragm of the water shutoff solenoid
diaphragms are available or get a complete unit
if it has hot and cold solenoids ( hot and cold water hoses ) and you are not using the hot just swap the hoses over and only use the hot water settings
that way the cold water comes in through the hot water solenoid

I have an kenmore elite "ultra wash" model 665. not sure the rest.. about 7/8 years old, making loud buzzing sound during wash cycles,starts about 5 minutes into the normal wash cycle. i removed the inlet...


I have the same problem as those who stated their dishes are not getting clean. If you listen to the wash cycle you should hear water sloshing around inside. If you hear just a humming sound the washer has no water. I have this problem. I had a tech come and he told me the water is syphoning out my drain and I need to change my plumbing, then he charged me $65. I have lived in this house for ten years. 6 with the washer that came with house and 4 with this Kenmore Elite. This problem started about 6 months ago. So what I have been doing is opening the door, after the humming starts and the sloshing stops, and adding about 2 L of water. It seems to wash just fine after that.

Will stop agitating, unless it is on low water


1. Sounds like your problem comes from a drain hose not having enough air flow at the stand pipe - this causes water from your washer to drain ahead of time and washer stops.
2. Your pressure switch is defective and needs to be replaced.
Pressure swiches control your water levels.

Washing Machine stops and leaks


A Clothes Washer with the complaint "Leaks in Front" (on floor) can be;

Defective Water-Pump (Very common of non-belt models) - Many water-pumps become defective due to the constant wear and misc. items becoming lodged (coins, necklaces, shoe laces, screws, etc.) or breaking the plastic housing or connections. The water pump is fairly simply to replace and is located on the inside front of the machine.

The water pump is typically a white or off white plastic and will have (2) black drain hoses connected; one coming from the tub and the other going to the drain out the back/rear of the machine. Electric pumps with typically of 2 wires going to and connected to the pump. ** Note: When disconnecting and removing the water-pump, becareful of water remaining in tub that may come shooting/flowing out.

Dishwasher not draining


The drain system is pretty easy to understand and the checks you can do will identify how to fix it..
First off, check the screen filter in the bottom of the dishwasher.. all water must exit thru that filter before it can be pumped out..if that is clean..check the drain hose itself is not kinked or pinched off.. ( depending on your set up..you will find it attached to a drain trap or directly to a stub off the side of your garbage disposer..if you have one..).. make sure that the path the drain water travels is free and not restrictive.. ( meaning: that your drain hose goes into your house drain system and that it is not restricting the water flow thru it).. Lastly.. and as a check.. your pump, the hoses leading to and from it may be bound up ... as a check...you can detach the drain hose and route it into a large bucket or pail under the sink then try cycling the dishwasher.. when it gets to the cycle where it drains.. you should get a very good flow into that bucket.. be careful with this test because if it is working right.. the flow should be fairly high..If it is , then stop the dishwasher and reattatch it to the drain system and monitor its performance there.. If it doesn't pump the water very well..then you may have a restrictive drain system in your house.. Hope this helps..

Kenmore Ultra Wash III Dishwasher will not drain properly


From the sound of things, your dishwasher drains faster than your sink drain ( via the garbage disposal) can drain it off.. You may have a problem with the way your sink drain/trap is vented and there is too much back pressure to drain down quickly.. When you run water from your sink, does it take a long time to drain down or if you fill your sink up and drain it, does it drain slowly ? That may be your problem.. Hope that helps.

After the complete wash cycle is finished, the clothes are still soaking wet sometimes. This is not an every load problem.

Kenmore quietpak2 no longer rinse, drain, spin


Sounds like the pump, eighter blocked or needs new pump.Place outlet hose in to bucket to drain, if no water comes out its blocked, if water flows freely possible needs new pump.
