Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

Kenmore 70 Series heavy duty washing machine

Machine does not fill completely on high. It has been getting a little lower each year. Manual does not show any adjustment for water level other than the normal low/med/high on from - seems there should be an adjustment screw at the back but nothing mentioned / nothing found.

    Incidentally, the cause is a VERY small wire spring inside the control body that is not really up to the task, and stretches over years.

    Its a common occurrence, and I make this repair, on callouts, no parts required, couple times a month

    OOPS, you may have to flip the switch between hi-med and back to get the water to restart filling

No adjusting the water level, doesn't sound like a common complaint, but replacing the water level switch sounds like only remedy

The electric motor my have failed or a part called a capacitor could be the problem? The capacitor is part of the starting circuit of the electric motor, if this fails the motor will not start therefore the washing machine won't spin or agitate.

Kenmore Series 70 washing machine whines and low flow on cold H2O


Yeah you need to replace the water valve. To get to it you need to remove the cabinet on the newer direct drive models, If yours has a rear access panel then you simply pop the top to get to the valve after removing the hoses. Fairly simple job. Here is a good website for direct drive coupling replacement . It shows you how to open the cabinet. http://repair2000.com/coupling.html
GVI 151 is the generic part that fix all belt drive models. Direct drive will need its own little water valve buy hay it ain't but 20 bucks.
For a better explanation post you model number in the comment box and I will research it further for you amigo.

The most likely cause for water fill temperature problems is the solenoid has burned out, usually cold first, it gets used more. Not a repairable item , easy to replace

You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and gearcase.
You can buy the part for about $10 or have someone come out and replace it for about $150-200.
If you will post the complete model number from the the washer so I can see which style cabinet you have, I will try to walk you through the repair. It isn't very complicated if you are handy with home repairs.
With the age of the machine it probably just needs a coupler, but it could also have a problem in the transmission or basket drive that has caused the failure.

I am assuming there is no noise coming from the machine, if not check the lid switch. open the lid and look for a small slot in the top of the washer. With the washer set to run, press down on the slot with a screwdriver or something (make sure everything is clear from the tub) see if there is a clicking sound when you push down. If the machine starts you need a depressor piece on the door. if there is no clicking sound you may need something else. lets start with the simplest, like the door switch and go from there.
