This is usually caused by either a defective water inlet valve or defective pressure switch. An easy test to determine which one is causing the problem is to unplug the washer, but leave the water taps on. If the water continues to fill, the water inlet valve is bad. If the water stops, replace the pressure switch.

If you determine the water inlet valve is defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

If you determine the pressure switch to be bad, simply remove the console. The switch is round in shape and will be located behind the load size/level selector knob. It has an electrical connection and an air hose attached to it. The instructions for removing the console are included in the link I provided.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

There are two solonoid operated valves that turn on/off the water (controlled by the cycle switch) .. one valve is for the hot water the other for cold .. one of yours is bad .. they are usually paired .. that is, one unit contains both solonoids ... you can usually find them very close or at where the water hooks up to the washer .. you can purchase a new set of valves and install them yourself if you are handy .. just make sure the unit is unplugged and water turned off .. the electrical connections just plug in .. its a good idea to replace the hoses at this time as well .. or at least put in new rubber washers ..

The water inlet valve is not shutting completely off. It keep leaking. It's at the back where the hoses go into the washer. Probably needs replace although you may can try flushing and cleaning it.

SOURCE: kenmore 70 series, 110 washer leaks water when

Hi, You will need to change the inlet mixer valve. It is sticking open just enough to allow water to drip through it. This should be chandes asap so that it doesn't get bad enough to over flow the washer.
Here are directions on how to remove the cabinet so you can get to the inlet valve.
Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can set it aside.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

I have a Kenmore 70 series Washing machine top load model 110 serial number 82870120 . where is the lint trap located and how to take out to clean? clothes have a lot of lint after being washed.


It is likely that a tissue or paper product was included with the wash load. The series 70 does not have a lint trap. At the hose connection to the house drain lint has been known to build up restricting the emptying. This buildup would not introduce lint into the washer.

If the water temperature is very very cold and you use powder detergent it will not dissolve completely into the water and will leave a white residue on the fabrics.

Try running a short load in the washer allowing for ample water to rinse out the machine before the next wash load.

Kenmore series 70 top load washer - cold water fill very slowly.


The screens in the line are clogged. There is usually a screen in the washer hose at the point where it is connected to the faucet as well as one by the water inlet valve. NEVER REMOVE THE SCREEN BY THE WATER VALVE. As for the one in the cold water fill hose, that can be cleaned or replaced.
