Washing Maching - The water will fill the tub, agitation will begin, but the water continues to run and will not stop unless the water is turned off at the shut off valve. Would this be the water inlet valve?

Kenmore 80 series,CH2874165. Continues to fill with water and never starts to agitation. Will spin and drain no problem


In order for the filling to stop and the wash programme to begin, the brain needs to know there is enough water in the tub. There are a variety of methods of detecting the tub water level - pressure switch, float switch or electronic moisture detector.
These things tend to be placed outside the tub and connected by narrow hoses that sometimes perish and leak or become blocked with residue. Sometimes the switch itself fails...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. This sounds like a problem with the water level switch in the washer. It controls the amount of water entering the tub. It is probably defective. You may want tomake sure the switch is getting power first by testing the wires with a voltage meter.

The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
