SOURCE: Kenmore Series 80 also won't fill

the pressure switch is inside the console with the timer on top of washer, it is the round thing with a rubber hose stuck onto it ,,, if you have a know that you can set for water level that is it, some models dont have the knob but all has the pressure switch ,,, take the 2 screws out of the console and pull forward at bottom and swing up to get to all the controls, be sure to have your washer unplugged when doing this / larry

SOURCE: kenmore he3 series washer keeps filling with water when not in use

Remove the 3 screws at the back of the machine that hold the top on. pull back on the top and lift the top off. Remove the hose from the inlet valve and remove the screw that holds the inlet valve.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series model #110.26882503 fills slowly

Yes, the only other thing I would do and you may have done this is to put the hose directly over in the washer tub and turn the water on to check the flow. If that's good then replace the water valve.

SOURCE: kenmore 300 won't start spinning after water fills

If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385250-replacing_motor_coupling_kenmore_top

The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.

Now...a washer that fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

Take note of your symptoms:

1. Washer fills, may or may not agitate, will not advance to the rinse cycle, and will NOT drain - lid switch.

2. Washer fills, does NOT agitate or spin, but WILL drain - motor coupling.

If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Water not filling up kenmore washer model number11024642300


The most common thing that causes the washer not to fill up with water is the water inlet valve. If this valve has power to it when it's supposed to be filling with water, and you have adequate water supply to the washer, then the washer should be filling with water. The part number for the replacement valve is 285805.

My Kenmore washer will not shut off the hot water at the end of the fill cycle


Water valves work on a hydraulic principle, the surface area of the valve where the water comes to the valve is more than the opening that it passes into the machine.. The pressure of the water shuts off the valve. The electric solenoid opens the valve when power is applied to fill the machine.
'
If you unplug the washing machine while it is filling and it keeps filling you have a bad water valve.

If you unplug the machine while filling and it stops filling you have a electrical problem or a bad pressure switch.

Kenmore by Whirlpool sxs water in the door. Ice maker 106.565424


The water control valve for the ice maker side is your most likely reason. If filling ice maker with tap water and allowing to freeze. If it dumps then the water control should fill. if not the valve is not working. Sea Breeze

Kenmore washer 90 series will not fill up with water


You can shut off the water, then remove the hoses to see if the screens on the fill valve are gunked up. This is much easier to do than to replace the valve. I think you'll have sucess on that route :)

Kenmore 90 Series Washer : cold water fills at just a trickle:


your hot water goes through the water heater so contaminates settle in the heater. the cold does not, there is a screen inside the fill valve where the hose hooks to the valve on the machine. if this in not plugged then the fill valve will have to be replaced. because of the build up of contaminates..

Ont stop filling with cold water


Hi. the pressure sensors in the water valve assembly appear to be damaged. you will need to replace the inlet water valve assembly in this case asap.

This is solenoid failuer. (basic water valve failure this case)
