Hello,Sounds like a problem with either the inlet valve or the pressure switch, the way to determine which is bad... while the machine is filling pull the power plug..if the water keeps filling it's the inlet valve that is going to be bad..if it stops filling it's going to be the pressure switch. The pressure switch is located in the control panel and has a small rubber pipe attached.once you have figured which it is replace it good luck.
If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again..Mike

WashMachine wont wash and wont stop filling

There is a rubber tube that goes from the outside of the outer plastic bowl up to the pressure switch in the top panel. It is on the left rear corner. It may have been pulled off the pressure switch. Look under on that corner and locate where it is attached to the plastic bowl. if that is OK then follow the tube up and check top connection.
Hope this will help you.

I have a GE model WHDRE526E1WW washmachine.The complaint was it would not spin. I checked the agitator coupler and the washmachine agitates but won't spin or fill with water. I suspect it may be the...

Try suspecting the tub end of the water level tube being plugged with " goop " so that the washer thinks it is still full of water, thus will not fill or spin. Take the front panel off by releasing the push in clips at the top of the front panel, in the seam where it meets the washer's top. Now, find the tube at the left side of the outer tub and pull it off the tub. Clean it out or cut off an inch (don't do the cutting thing more than one time) and replace after using a thin wire to clean out the tub end of the attachment. To help prevent this from re-occuering, every few months, fill the washer to the lowest setting with the hottest water, no clothes, and several cups of bleach, and run the longest cycle you have (with no clothes, of course). Make sure to rinse out the tub on a higher water level before you wash a load of clothes.

You need to first check your water inlet hoses & make sure they are not kinked or plugged.(verify by disconnecting hoses & opening to make sure water flows. If ok. Then check for cold water operation at fill valve. If no cold water after a few seconds then the problem is the water fill valve. If this doesn't help. Post findings for further troubleshooting.

Kenmore washmachine will not fill with water

If the unit is agitating with no water in it, you will need to replace the pressure switch( aka Water level switch) it is located up inside the control panel and has 3 wires and a hose on it.

Good Luck!
