Question about Kenmore 22642 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore washing machine will not stop filling

Once I start my laundry the water will not stop filling. Does not matter what load type, it just keeps filling until I stop it and then it will start, but when it goes to the rinse cycle, it does the same thing. I have to open the lid in the rinse cycle and then fiddle with the timer to get it to kick in to drain.

There is a water level sensor in the tube and it might be plugged. IT could also be the load selector or the control module.

SOURCE: kenmore stack washer and dryer

gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.

SOURCE: machine fills and agitates, but won't drain

It sounds like you pump is clogged. If there is something stuck in your pump the motor can't spin it to drain the water. If that is the problem then it's easy to fix. Simply clear the pump and put it back on, just make sure to clamp off the hoses to the pump with hose clamps or you will have water every where. If that is not the problem though then it means that your timer is bad and that is a little more expensive. Try the pump first though and hope that that is all it is. If not, like I said, you will need a new timer but most likely your pump is just clogged with something that is causing the pump motor to not spin. It could be a coin or a hair pin or even a sock or something. Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.

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!

Why would a washing machine fill to proper level and then stop. no action after filling.


Power was never the issue or it wouldn't have filled at all. Also the pressure switch that detects water level must be okay since it stopped filling at the proper level. That leaves the control board or a relay that the control board uses to start the drum motor.

My laundry room flooded when I ran a load of clothes in my kenmore he2 plus washing machine


Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.



If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Keeps stopping after 10 seconds of operation


Motor is bad and needs to be replaced. It is drawing too many amps and tripping its overload. Once cool it will run again only to stop. About $100 for the motor.
