Kenmore Elite filling w/ Water when not running

I have a kenmore elite washer that is filling with water when the washer is not in operation. When it is actually on and washing clothes it drains properly. I will take the clothes out - no water. Come back a couple of days later and there is water sitting in the drum. Not sure what the problem might be?

Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is leaking. It needs replacing.

Kenmore elite smartwash quiet pak 9 he4t the washer starts filing water when the washer is turned off.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- not closing fully- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

Kenmore Elite HE3 washer


set the washer to fill. open the lid and depress the lid switch. might be in the rear of the cover or on the side. watch to see where the water level comes to. once the tub is filled, the water height switch operates the timer motor for the different cycles.
