Question about Kenmore 23822 Top Load Washer
When you first turn it on to start washing, the water does not stop filling up and it will not start to cycle. It spins and drains, but the water will not shut off and begin washing, any tips? (Kenmore 80 series mod 23822100)
Does the washer leak water into the tub even when it is not on. If so, your fill valve is leaking or sticking.
I would also check the following components for problems:
-Air pressure switch. This is usually located inside the control area and likely is attached to the water level control. Try attaching a small piece of tubing to the pressure switch and gently blow into it. If it turns off, the problem likely lies elsewhere.
-Air tube. This clear tube can get crimped or worn from the vibration of the washer's normal operation. Any holes, cracks or crimps will prevent the air pressure created by the water in the tub from getting to the pressure switch.
-Soap residue in the air dome. The airdome is the piece attached to the side of the washtub that allows water in the tub to exert air pressure into the tube and the pressure switch. Soap residue can create an obstruction that prevents the pressure from being transmitted up the tube. Try cleaning with vinegar or ammonia. (Remember: Clean the tub and tubing thoroughly with water after cleaning. Ammonia and Vinegar are both corrosive to electrical parts.)
Hope this helps!
