My Kenmore Washer 110.92597200 will not stop filling which causes water to overflow drum onto floor. It does not seem to respond to Water Level setting.

top loader machines have a small tube running up to the sensor that fills with water and affects the level settings
check that it is not a problem with the inlet solenoid not shutting of the water
call a service technician

How do I stop my ice maker water filler hose from freezing - which stops water from filling the tray?

This problem is caused by a defective water control valve that does not stop leaking water like a dripping faucet. This causes water to freeze in the water fill tube thus blocking fill of ice tray. Replace water control valve.

My ge top load washer will not stop filling up with water

The water level switch shuts the water off when it gets to the desired amount. Also change the water level to low and see if it stops at different level.

Water level

Probable causes:
Faulty water inlet valve - unplug washer, if water continues to fill
replace the valve.
Water level switch, hose or dome faulty - service the assembly.
Timer faulty - unplug washer, if water stops filling test timer.

Model # 110.26832692 does not stop filling up with water when the load selector size is set will overflow if I don't stop it!


Their are 2 possibilites causing it to overflow

1) the water inlet valve that the hoses from the house plumbing attach to is sticking open,when it sticks it will stick open regardless if thier is power to the machine or not,so to determine if that is the problem,start the washer and quickly unplug it,if the water continues to fill, that valve is sticking

2) the water level switch is defective,do the same as far as starting it,if the fill stops when power disconected it's the water level switch that is in need of replacement

Good luck, i hope this helps to figure out what is wrong with your washer,

I have a kenmore model 110.28922790. It will not stop filling with water. What would be the likely cause?

the water pressure/level fill switch under the control panel is defective,it uses water level/pressure per you setting on the control panel for wash load size to fill it to the set level,then start the washing cycle after it fills

Washing machine wont stop filling

The fill cycle on your washer is controlled by the pressure switch. That's the component inside the console that has a (either rubber, or clear vinyl) hose attached to it. Its function is to respond to the air pressure associated with water filling the tub, by closing a set of electrical contacts and allowing the machine to go into the wash mode. If the air hose becomes clogged with debris or lint, the signal won't reach the timer, and the machine can overfill.

To determine whether this is the cause of your problem, set your machine on the smallest load setting and watch the fill. As the water exceeds the level you're accustomed to, unplug, or turn off the machine. If it stops filling, the problem is probably a clogged air hose. Disconnect it from the switch and blow through it until you can hear air going through (make sure you drain the machine, first). If it continues to fill after the power is disconnected, the problem is not with the level switch, or the air hose; instead, it's fouled water valve.

The water works by opening and closing by solenoids (one solenoid for each water temperature). When sediment from the cod water accumulates in the valve's inlet, it can foul the valve seat, and it will stop closing all the way. If it gets bad enough, it can cause a flood.

There's really no good way to clean a fouled water valve. It will have to be replaced.

When washer is in super wash cycle water will not stop causingthe tub to over fill running onto the floor.

It sounds like you are trying to use the largest water level setting. If this is correct you may have a pressure switch problem.

First turn the timer to spin and get all of the water out, that start a washer cycle with the water level set to the small or low setting and see if the washer fills to this level. if it stops at the low level great Now if it continues to fill and does stop you may need a pressure switch or the hose needs to be replaced that runs from the tub to the pressure switch.

Now set at the medium level and try again. does it stop or over fill?

If it over fills you probably need a pressure switch however before you purchase this, make sure the hose is in good condition one pin hole will cause your overfill condition.
