There is a thin tube that plugs to the side of the tub then runs up to whats called a water level pressure switch.the tube may be old & cracked or has come off at one end.Alternitavely the inlet valve may be faulty.this can easily be tested by letting the machine fill & pull the plug out of the wall,if the water stops coming in then the valve is ok.

The problem is the pressure switch has failed or the hose is plugged up, has a hole in it. These are usually inexpensive and are very easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/toppressureswitchvideo.html this will walk you thru the inspection and replacement of this part. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

Washing machine dose not aditate anymore


pull up the agitator, you may need to get a belt wrap it underneath and yank it up, please be careful that it doesnt hit your eye and under the agitator is a coupler or bell that needs to be replaced, it is stripped, loosen the bolt and replace

Machine fills up with water then when its suppose to agitate it just stops working will turn timer & push knob in & out & reset then it will work


How long do you let it sit after the water fills up, somtimes the timer will take a little extra time to get to the point that starts the agitation cycle.
When it dose this, without pulling the knob out, turn the disk on the timer clockwise 1 click and see if it starts up agitating, if it dose dont worry about it it is normal

Kenmore 90 Series fills with water but would not agitate or spin


You have a problem with the motor coupling. Top-load washers use what's called a direct-drive system, meaning it does not use a belt but what's called a "motor coupling". I probably replace 5 a week because these little guys break because of 2 reasons that i've found.
1) The break mechanism is too dry and causing the basket to stop at a holt, which puts a lot of strain on the coupler.

2) They break because of over-loading. I don't think you're over-loading though because it was find for 5 straight years.

Good luck to you. The repair is kind of hard to do on your own for the first time, so I would call an authorized technician. It will run you anywhere between $90 to $120 at most.

Best of luck!

My Kenmore 70 series is 18 years old. It will not


Hello. Since your machine is 18 years old and the agitation/spin is costly to repair I would definitely recommend a replacement washer.

Water dose ot stop when washer is full. It continues to run.


If you disconnected power and water still flowed, replace the water valve. If water stopped flowing when power was disconnected, clean out tube from tub to water level switch.

Kenmore stack washer and dryer


gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.
