I do not know about a Kenmore but all the washing machines I have taken apart have a pressure switch located near the top just under the lid. as the water fills the machine it also fills a plastic pipe which is connected to the pressure switch.

the drain pipe in the wall needs to be as tall as the cabnet of the washer. if it is the see how much hose is going into the drain pipe. should only be about 9 to 12 inches into the pipe. any more than that will cause a syphon and suck the water out as it fills

The following link explains how to replace one:

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

If the switch DOES require replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All three sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all three for the best price. If you still need assistance, please contact me and let me know. If my diagnosis is not correct, please post back and elaborate a bit more so I can assist you further. If your washer is not configured this way, or if you still have questions, please let me know.

SOURCE: Kenmore series 70 washer will only fill with water.

I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.

You need a new timer. The clicking sound is the timer knob going and your washer not "agitating" is the result of the timer knob not sending the signal to the rest of the machine.

SOURCE: Kenmore Washer 80 Series - Water cut off

there is a vacuum hose hooked to your water level adjuster. If that hose falls off, which it sometimes does because there is no hose clamp, the washing machine will not know how high the water is and will continue to fill. I found this out after starting my wash before bed and waking up at 6:00 to ankle deep puddles all over my house.
the fix: open the gauge panel by taking off the plastic covers on each side and unscrewing the bolts under the covers (one per side) then the gauge panel will rotate up and allow you access to the hose and other gauges
if the hose is still clamped on check for holes in it and if no holes then you may want to replace the leveler guage

Water-level switch shorting out


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers.

It has a section on testing components including the water level switch:

See the following for how to release the console and cabinet.

Washer wont stop filling


There is probably a plastic tube running from the tub to a pressure switch which controls the water level cutoff on control panel. One can locate this by taking the backcover off and looking at the water level switch and following the tube to the connection on the tub. Tube must fit on level switch tightly for it to work properly.

Kenmore 80 series washer doesn't stop filling up with water


Almost went and bought a switch until I widened by search for "kenmore washer 80 series overflow" and came up with this:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1206464-kenmore_80_series_overflow

Turns out that a couple weeks ago, I had a really unbalanced load that probably shook off the tubing. Anyhow, saved me a trip to the supply store AND cost. Thanks to the original poster!
