I wouldn't imagine it being a computer problem, computers don't make mistakes like that. I would start with the inlet valve http://www.partselect.com/xq/aspx/Inventory.391478/qx/PartDetail.htm?SourceCode=7&ModelNum=110.44832202 and maybe the inlet valve wiring harness http://www.partselect.com/xq/aspx/Inventory.391563/qx/PartDetail.htm?SourceCode=7&ModelNum=110.44832202 for good measure. Both parts together will run you less than $100 and shouldn't be that difficult to replace. I'm am no Washing Machine expert, I just go by my common sense and Google. The computer http://www.partselect.com/xq/aspx/Inventory.971890/qx/PartDetail.htm?SourceCode=7&ModelNum=110.44832202 is $250+ and like I said I don't think the computer would cause the valve to open slowly and stay open, sounds like the vavle is sticking. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Hot water just trickles in both of my Kenmore top loader washers

Try reversing hot for cold hoses and see what happens. That will test your valves, hot water pressure, etc. As far as I know, the valve screens are right where the hoses hook up.

SOURCE: washer keeps filling up with hot water

Hi

If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's 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. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Kenmore elite sm 9711174, keeps overflowing


the water level sensor is clogged-it should be a small tube connected to the tub that is connected to the control that sets the water level makes sure that is clear-take it off and try to blow through it-compressed air would work nicely or run a wire through it-cheers Denny

My Sears series 80 washer fills till it is overflowing and doesnt shut off water flow, it was overflowing onto floor this morning, it is full to the rim now, and wont drain or do anything when it is turned...


The usual arrangement is there are 2 electrical water inlet valves, one for Hot and 1 for Cold. These valves are turned on by the timer, and remain on until the water level switch turns them on, and allows the washer to then run. It sounds like this water level switch is bad. This switch should be in the panel above the top of the washer, and has a rubber/plastic tube that goes toward the washer drum. It is also possible that the rubber tube is off or blocked. (if the water inlet valve is stuck open, turning the washer off will NOT stop the water).

Good Luck,
Bill

Oe error code


"OE" Drain error. Cause: not fully drained within 10 minutes Check there isn't a kink in your drain hose, ensure the filter is clean, the drain hose can become clogged with sludge, sometimes a hot wash with 1/2 a cup of vinegar will remove this sludgeOR "OE"
- Water overflow error Water supply does not stop after sensing an overflow condition. Turn off household water supply to washer and unplug power cord.
· Check wiring harness
· Check water inlet valve
· Check pressure sensor switch
· Check circuit board
