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:

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!

Kenmore 80 Series top loader washer overflows

It will not be a sensor,,,it will be what is called a "Ball **** valve" and they are pretty cheap to replace.
This same valve is in your toilet tank.

Kenmore washer 80 series 110 model not spinning.

unless your washer is over 20 years old, then it wont have a belt. the temperature of the water wont have anything to do with it spinning or not.
need to know if it agitates or drains and just wont spin.
if it agitates but no spin or drain, then you have a bad lid switch.
if it wont agitate or spin, but will drain, then you have a broken drive coupling.

Started a new load of wash and water never shut off flooding room

you can check for a broken/cracked/ dettached plastic hose leading from the back left side of tub to the pressure switch under the main console. usuall problem is it dry rots and cracks, or comes loose after shaking/vibrating,

Kenmore 80 series overflow

Ok, it sounds either your hose from the water level pressure switch has come off or broke, or the pressure switch itself is bad.

Check the pressure switch hose first.


My tubing came loose and I just duct taped it back on and it works perfectly.

You would need to open your console as shown here:
Pull forward and up on the console and you can hinge it open and hanging from the hinges.

Here is your water level pressure switch:

Kenmore 80 series overflowed!!!

The most common cause for this is the water mixing valve plunger sticking. the fix is to replace the mixing valve. Not so common is a defective water level pressure switch. Same fix, replace the switch. Really rare is a small leak in the tube from the tub to the pressure switch.
