Washer does not fill with enough water.


The water level is controlled by a pressure switch connected to a long rubber hose that goes inside the tub. If the switch is defective or if the pressure hose is blocked the machine may under-fill.

Check also inlet hose and water pressure from the house.

No matter what setting I put it on,like small load or med washer fills up with water and will not shut off. What could the promblem be.i


If you have to shut the water off at the tap and the washer agitates then you need a new fill valve . If it shuts the water off when you push the stop button or unplug the washer then the level switch is bad or the hose from the tub to the level switch is obstructed,

WATER FILLS WONT SHUT OFF


The pressure swith (load size) is what controls that chang that. A small hose runs from the bottom of your tub and as the water fills a measerd amount of water fills that tube and pressure build up in their operates that switch and activates the timer to stop filling and start agitating.

My washer keeps filling no matter the size I have


This sounds like a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm-like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to start appropriate cycle. Make sure there is no damage to or obstructions in the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Kenmore Series 90 top loading washing does not fill with water


Well you eliminated the fill valve when you said it does fill with water. More than likely its a bad connection on the control board. I wouldn't betmy paycheck on it but thats where I'd start. Take the cover off the control board and while machine is on being really careful wiggle each wire until the water starts in the tub and you have found the problem.

Washing machine overfills


Grab the tube off the water level switch that comes from the bottom of the tub and blow it out so that the sand in the bottom won't be blocking the operation,pump out the water, secure the tube tightly to the pressure switch and retry.aff8f03.jpg

Kenmore washer only will fill to a small load water level


This is Joyce
This is your water sensor, it is going off before it lets the machine fill up, if not this then the control on your machine that determines the size load you selected. go to kenmore.com download your manuel. see what you can find out about the machine.
let me know if you need any other assistance
thanks

Flooding everywhere


You are right. Sounds like the washer is not being told to shut off. If the washer will stop filling when the power is shut off to it: Open the front panel by using a putty knife to push in on the clips about two inches in from each side at the seam of the front panel and the washer top. Tilt washer front panel forward and lift off bottom pegs. Pull the tube off the outer tub at the left side, cut off and inch and a half, poke a thin wire into the hole on the tub end and remove, then put the tube back on. (do this with the tub empty) You can only do this one or two times before the tube starts to get too short, so from now on, every two or three months, fill the machine to the lowest water level with hot water and several cups of bleach and run a cycle, including rinses, to help prevent the goop from reforming in the tube area again.
If machine still fills when power is off, replace water valve.

Maytag washer will not stop filling when wash cycle is first selected. Doesn't matter if I choose small, medium, or large load.


How do you get it stop filling? If it stops filling by just shutting the timer off you may have a bad pressure/water level switch, if you have too shut the water off too the machine at the wall then you have a bad inlet water valve.
