Question about Kenmore 22642 Top Load Washer
The level won't stop the water
Check and eventually replace the water level switch. the switch is operated either by a floating sensor or by a pressure sensor. Probably a floater in your case. The sensor must be replaced.
If the WL is Ok, then you have a jammed inlet valve or a faulty timer board.
You can find parts and diagrams for many models here.

slick, first see if the hose came off the pressure switch. Just grab the end caps on each end of the control panel and pull them off, they snap on. Remove the two consol screws, pull foward and flip the consol up. See if the hose came off. If it did, just put it back on and use a zip tie to secure it. See attached photo. Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: Filling With Water
I recently had the same problem. I checked the end of the air hose coming from the tub. It had a tear in it right at the connection. I just cut off the hose at the tear and placed the hose back on the connection.

You are right, the switch for the water seems to have gone bad and should be replace. It is located next to the timer with a adjusting screw on it.

The problem is simple and easy to fix. Your washer has a tubing which runs from the base of the tub to the water pressure switch. It might have vibrated loose from the switch, or their can be some sediment in the tub. Blow out the tubing and reattach it securely to the switch and pump out the water in the tub. Then try it again. I wrote an article about this:

If the washer won't fill you'll need to check for the water
inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly.
Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is
not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will
not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and
should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet
valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace
the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the
pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...
Please post back if you need more information.
