Kenmore series washer- losing water pressure

I have a Kenmore series washer. When the water is filling, the pressure will suddenly decrease and start sounding like water hammering. I have unhooked and checked the hoses for blockages, found none. Could it be the water inlet valve?

It does sound like you have a inlet valve going bad.
i assume this happens on both the hot and cold water sides. if not try and switch hose and see what happens if the water pressure drops then replace the water valve.

The washer stopped all of the sudden. It was full of water, but even when I unplugged the washer and recycled the machine, it would not fill up. It makes a humming noise when I try to start the machine,...


If it fills and drains then I would suspect the motor coupler is bad, if it's a direct-drive washing machine. Most of them are, kenmore 80 or 90 series.

Kenmore 70 series washer model 82870120 will not stop filling


you need to replace the water valve. This is a common problem and a very easy fix. You can order the part at sears.com via model number and also see a breakdown of the machine and how to put it in.

Water keeps flowing non-stop with my old Kenmore washer


Check the pressure switch and the pressure switch hose.
Remove the end caps on the console and remove the 2 screws that hold it down. Pull slightly from the bottom of the console and flip it up. On the left side you should see the pressure switch (water level switch) with a few wires and a small hose connected to it. The hose should be connected between the pressure switch and the tub. In most cases the pressure switch hose sometimes falls off over time due to vibration.
Replace the hose if it is damaged. If there are no visible holes or cracks in the hose, try trimming 1/4" off each end of the hose (pressure switch side and tub side) and reconnect them making sure to push hose ends securely onto connections. This is done because the hose sometimes stretches at the connection points and you will lose air pressure inside the switch, therefore the water will never shut off.
Alternatively you can use small clamps on each end.
If this doesn't work, check the function of the pressure switch by attaching a small hose to it and blowing lightly into the pressure switch while the machine is filling. You should hear a click and the inlet water valve should turn off. If it doesn't turn off you may need to replace the pressure switch or if the machine fills even when it's in the off position replace the inlet water valve.
Good luck!

Kenmore 90 series Water pressure turning up and down


it will switch from hot to cold and back and forth trying to regulate the temp. You probrbly have more pressure in your cold water line than your hot or vise versa. This will cause it to seem to pulse. Dave www.washermd.com

Kenmore Series 80 also won't fill


the pressure switch is inside the console with the timer on top of washer, it is the round thing with a rubber hose stuck onto it ,,, if you have a know that you can set for water level that is it, some models dont have the knob but all has the pressure switch ,,, take the 2 screws out of the console and pull forward at bottom and swing up to get to all the controls, be sure to have your washer unplugged when doing this / larry

Kenmore 80 Series will not fill up with water


if your washer will agitate when set to fill but not fill, then your pressure switch is bad.
also you may want to check and see if you are getting both hot and cold to your washer.

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:

there are filters in the fill hose which could be blocked but usually the fault is low water pressure
