Question about Kenmore 94812 Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer
The machine doesn't fill - water just keeps flowing
It sounds like you have a siphoning problem. Double check to make sure you don't have the drain hose shoved down in the standpipe too far. 4 to 6 inches is sufficient enough when placing your drain hose into the standpipe. There needs to be an air gap in order for the washer to drain properly and to prevent the water from continually siphoning from the wash tub. DO NOT seal the top of the standpipe, either. Some people will do this thinking that it will help prevent overflows and/or get rid of any drain odors. It can actually cause problems. The standpipe should also be 2 inches in diameter, be a minimum of 34” from the floor, and should not exceed 72 inches in height. Post back if this is not the case and I will try to lead you in the right direction. I do hope this solves your problem.

SOURCE: Filling With Water
This is probably a control board failure, which should be replaced by someone familiar with them.
If you are handy, you can do it yourself.
If you need assistance, let me know.

for your model you have a water level control switch which does have a tube and it operates on air pressure from the weight of the water in the tub. when the air pressure in that tube reaches it's limit whether it be small med large load the switch tells your water valves to shut off. yours is not doing this. By removing the back you can see this tube. follow it up into the control panel and replace it or maybe it even needs adjusted. Either way the problem you have is with this switch.

Hi, Will the water shut off if you turn the timer off or unplug the washer?
If it shuts off when power is turned off to the washer, you need to look into the water level switch. If turning off power to the washer will not stop the water, you need to change the inlet valve.
Please let me know so I can assist you further.

This problem is commonly attributed to a water inlet valve that has become clogged with sediment or calcium deposits over time. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, this is a common problem. You can remove the valve and attempt to clean it by soaking it in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and water, or you can simply replace it all together. If you're going to go the route of removing the valve, it makes better sense to replace it, rather possibly having to repeat the steps again if cleaning the valve doesn't work. The following link explains how to access and replace one:
Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following web sites:
I have found these sites to be reputable and provide great service. Prices differ between them, so shop and compare. If you do not wish to order parts on line, look up the part numbers on the Sears site and check with your nearest appliance parts retailer. These is a common part that may be commonly found in their in-store inventory. The average cost is about $30 - $35.
If you DO wish to attempt to clean the valve to save some money, submerge the valve in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and hot water for about 30 minutes and flush with clean water. DO NOT submerge the electrical connections.
You may also try any number of calcium, lime and scale removers on the market. CLR comes to mind as a good product, but use in a well ventilated area. It has some very strong fumes.
If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.
