Kenmore 90 series does not stop filling

I removed the control panel, and the pressure hose is still attached. Do I have to remove the back of the machine to make sure it's still attached to the tub or is there an easier way?

You need to remove the washer exterior casing to access the wash tub where the air hose is attached to the air dome. Before you do that however, if the air hose had come off the air dome, the washer would leak as it tries to fill. This isn't a small leak either. More like a gush of water. Furthermore, you can check the air hose by adding some water to the wash tub, shutting off the washer and disconnect the air hose from the pressure switch. If you blow through the hose and can get air bubbles in the wash tub, the hose is not leaking. If you can't blow air through the hose, you may want to inspect the air hose to ensure it is not cracked or split somewhere. Just follow these steps:

1. Unplug washing machine.

2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.

a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer. The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer. There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.

b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up. There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.

3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.

4. Under the console will be two large brass colored clips. Take a large flat blade screwdriver and place it in the groove of the clip on the washer top. With the screwdriver firmly in the groove, push away from you towards the back of the washer. This will release the clips.

5. Disconnect the lid switch connector plug. This is the white colored plug on the washer top under the console.

6. Remove the washer casing. Open the lid of the washer. Using one hand, grip under the front rim of the washer opening. Do not grab the wash tub, just the casing. Tilt the washer case from the back first towards you, slide forward slightly, and then lift up. The entire case comes off exposing the wash tub and components.

To reinstall the washer casing, follow these steps to ensure you get the case correctly placed and secure on the frame:

1. Re-install washer case. With the lid of the washer open, grasp case under front rim and place it on the washer frame. While looking down through the washer lid opening, make sure the front lip of the case is placed UNDER the washer frame and rocked back onto the frame to ensure that the small cleats on the frame fit into the slotted grooves on the washer case base. If you do not get the case seated correctly it will rattle and vibrate while the washer is in operation.

2. Make sure the back of the washer fits into the washer casing on each side by leaning over the front of the washer and grasping the back panel and pull towards you. Reinsert the brass clips by placing the clips into the slot on the back of the washer first, and then forcefully push then down into the opening on top of the washer.

3. REINSTALL LID SWITCH CONNECTOR. It is easy to forget. If you do not reconnect it, the washer will not work correctly.

4. Reinstall console.


Make sure you check the electrical connections on the pressure switch to make sure they are not corroded and are making good contact. If all these preliminary measures do not work, replace the pressure switch.

Let me know if you need any further assistance. I hope this helps you.

THE WATER IS NOT STOPPING, JUST KEEPS PUTTING WATER INTO THE WASHER KENMORE 90 SERIES


There are two possible causes of the water not stopping. First is the water inlet valves stuck in the open position and second is the pressure switch not tripping when the correct water level is reached. Turn off or unplug the machine while it is filling and if the water doesn't stop, the water inlet valve/s is/are indeed stuck in the open position. Replacing the water inlet valve assembly should solve the problem.

But if the water stops, the problem is the pressure switch stuck in the empty position. Disconnect power then raise the console up and hinge it at the rear of the machine to access the pressure switch. It is the part with the small clear hose attached to it. Detach the hose and blow air down into it including the pressure switch itself. Replace the pressure switch if the problem persists.

Kenmore series 90 washer keeps filling with water and won't stop during to move on to next cycle


If overfills onto the floor , then the waterlevel switch hose came off the switch behind the control panel . You have to remove the 2 side screws and tilt panel to see the hose and switch . If the water keeps filling , but doesn't go on the floor , then you have a syphon problem at your drain . As it fills , water is being sucked out by your drain due to no air able to get in around the drainhose and drainpipe . Pull drain hose out of drain and only insert about 4-5 inches into drain . If hose is tightly in drain , a parts house or home depot should have a syphon break in stock .

Kenmore 90 series won't stop filling with water


A common cause to the constant fill problem is the air dome hose coming loose from the pressure switch. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r762094-washer_overflows

It is common for the hose to come loose and fall off the pressure switch from vibration and from becoming stretched. Without this hose attached, the pressure switch cannot detect the change in pressure from the wash tub as the washer fills. The result is a washer that continues to fill to the point of overflowing. If the hose IS attached, check the entire length of the hose for leaks. Also, double check the electrical connections to the pressure switch to ensure good contact. All these steps will assist you in determining if you have a bad pressure switch, or a problem that requires no parts. Please read through the rest of the link and let me know if you still require assistance. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore serie 80.does not stop filling water in and does not star


Yeah I've seen that happen a many of times. Take the back of the control panel off and where your load size selector is you'll find a little hose that's suppoed to be attached to the side of it. just reattach it and you'll be back up and running.

Almost all washing machines use a pressure tube that tells the washer when to stop filling with water. If the tube comes off for some reason the washer will never stop filling and that's an instant flood if you don't notice it quick enough. Also a hole or puncture of any kind can be causing ti to never stop filling as well.

Hope this helps

Water keeps flowing non-stop with my old Kenmore washer


Check the pressure switch and the pressure switch hose.
Remove the end caps on the console and remove the 2 screws that hold it down. Pull slightly from the bottom of the console and flip it up. On the left side you should see the pressure switch (water level switch) with a few wires and a small hose connected to it. The hose should be connected between the pressure switch and the tub. In most cases the pressure switch hose sometimes falls off over time due to vibration.
Replace the hose if it is damaged. If there are no visible holes or cracks in the hose, try trimming 1/4" off each end of the hose (pressure switch side and tub side) and reconnect them making sure to push hose ends securely onto connections. This is done because the hose sometimes stretches at the connection points and you will lose air pressure inside the switch, therefore the water will never shut off.
Alternatively you can use small clamps on each end.
If this doesn't work, check the function of the pressure switch by attaching a small hose to it and blowing lightly into the pressure switch while the machine is filling. You should hear a click and the inlet water valve should turn off. If it doesn't turn off you may need to replace the pressure switch or if the machine fills even when it's in the off position replace the inlet water valve.
Good luck!

Check your pressure switch.

First of all, unplug your washer. You will need to remove the console in order to get to the pressure switch. The washer may have release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up. If not equipped with this type of console, you may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. And, still there are some of the older models that have screws holding the console in place from the back. Once you have the console loosened, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place.

The pressure switch will be located behind the load level selector knob. Make sure the air hose is still attached. Often, this hose comes loose and falls off. This will prevent the lid switch from sensing the pressure from the wash tub as the water fills. The result: washer fills continuously until it overflows. Looks like a major problem, when its not. Reattach the hose. To keep the hose form sliding off again, you can take a small zip-tie and place it snugly around the hose where it connects to the pressure switch. This will create enough resistance to prevent the hose from falling off in the future. CAUTION: DO NOT over-tighten the zip tie as you can crack or damage the pressure switch. Just enough to make it snug.

If the air hose is still attached, check the electrical connections to ensure the connector plug is making contact and/or not corroded. If everything checks out, replace the pressure switch. If need further assistance, please post back and let me know.

I hope this helps you.

Washer won't stop filling with water.


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.
