This is caused by a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm-like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain point it activates the switch to shut off the water. Make sure that the plastic tube is not damaged or obstructed in any way and the switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking continuity. A lack of continuity will mean a faulty switch. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Kenmore 80 series model # 110.82382110 fills, agitates and drains but won't spin


Based on the information you provided, you need to replace the wig wag on the unit. No joke, that is what the part is called. Here is a link to the part to order.

Kenmore washer 90 series continue to fill w/water. Load size won't stop the fill... had to shut off water source. won't get to agitate phase... just want to stay at fill stage... can drain, spin,...


Sounds like the fill switch needs to be replaced. A good way to test it is to set your machine on low fill and see if it fills past 3/4. If it does, it's the fill switch.

Kenmore 80 series washer model # 110.92283100 that fills up with water then makes a horrible sound when agitating like the gears are stipped. Then it stops spinning and won't turn on for hours/


You might have a sock in the pump.
It might also be a broken coupler or a combo of the 2. The motor is overheating and shutting down on overload.. Could be a coin or something in that pump.

Kenmore 80 series washing machine - won't stop filling with water on rinse cycle - never moves to next cycle - if I stop machine and manually move to spin, the machine does spin and the water drains


Your air pressure tube going to the water level switch is pinched or stopped up,OR, the water level switch is going bad.
Use this manual to access these parts and diagnose which is bad.

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!
