A machine that overfills or underfills can often have a faulty water level/pressure 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 level, it activates the switch to shut off the water. Make sure there is no damage to or obstruction in the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad switch. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Kenmore Quietguard 2 dishwasher not filling.


There is a solenoid that keeps the water in the washer. It is either faulty or there is something preventing it from closing completely. If there is no power applied to the washer, does it then hold water?

My Kenmore top loading washing machine is leaking from the bottom. The water is dripping from the bottom of the front panel. What needs to be fixed and how do I do it?


This symptom usually indicates that you have a failed inlet solenoid water valve assembly. Completely unplug the washer from the electrical supply and see if the water stops filling. If it does, then you likely have a control board failure. This is rare but possible. If the water continues to fill with the washer unplugged from electricity, I recommend shutting off the hot and cold water supply faucets behind the washer. It is likely that the water will stop filling the washer. This would indicate that you have a failed water valve assembly.
