Question about Kenmore 3.5 cu. ft. King Size Capacity Top Load Washer

Water Just Keeps Filling!

If I turn off the washer it just keeps filling and filling, the only way to get it to stop is to turn off the water supply to the machine. Even flipping the cycle to spin won't stop it, it just keeps filling with water and overflowing.

Any ideas?

SOURCE: Filling With Water

I recently had the same problem. I checked the end of the air hose coming from the tub. It had a tear in it right at the connection. I just cut off the hose at the tear and placed the hose back on the connection.

Washer won't stop filling


Does the water stop filling if machine is unplugged? If yes, bad water valve inside washer.

If water stops when unplugged, may be a faulty pressure switch or airdome hose came loose from switch - located in control panel - water level switch.

If water keeps filling and never overflows onto floor - likely that water is siphoning out drain hose. Raise drain hose higher or allow an air break at the drain hose exit.

Keeps filling up with water even on spin


Close the water supply valve and allow the machine to completely drain the water from the tub. Turn off the machine and disconnect it from the power outlet. Open the water supply valve. Replace the water inlet valve if water drips into the tub when the machine is off.

Start a new cycle if the machine stops filling when it is off. The control board or the water level switch is malfunctioning if it keeps filling even during the spin cycle. Indicate the model number for proper troubleshooting and repair assistance.

Keeps filling with water when turned on


A lot of wahing machines use a bunch of micro-switches to turn the various solenoids on and off. If your washer has that type of switch, it could be sticking, subsequently sending an "on" signal to the fill solenoid.

Wont stop filling


If when you press pause while filling and it keeps filling then you have a faulty valve. If the filling stops then valve is ok.
If you filling keeps going until overfilling the machine which is what i understand is your problem, then most likely that you have a small pinhole in your pressure tube.

Washer constantly fills with hot water even when turned off.


Sounds like a bad mixing valve. To verify that it is the valve you need to turn off the washer when it is filling. If water keeps running, replace the valve, Cost is under $50. for most washers.
