Question about Washing Machines
I have the model # 110.28922790 and no matter what size load we have it on the water will not stop running, it just overflows. We have to manually turn the knob to stop the water flow. How do we fix this problem??
This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Click on the Control Panel category and see the "Switch, Water Level", Item # 2.
AND / OR Click on the Rear Panel category and see the "Water Inlet Valve" #26
See the following PDF on how Whirlpool / Kenmore top load direct drive washers work and testing procedures for the components.

Check for a faulty water level/pressure switch. This is 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 rises, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain leve it activates the switch to shut off the water. Make sure there is no obstruction in the tube and that it is not damaged in any way. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking continuity. A lack of continuity will mean a bad switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
