Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
My kenmore elite HE3 keeps filling up with water by itself, with out operation. I then open the door and the water spills out. I wanted to know if this is common? If so is there anything I can do to stop it from doing filling up by itself? thanks.
This problem is commonly attributed to a water inlet valve leaking by or a pressure switch malfunction. The following link explains how to diagnose the problem:
If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, the water inlet valve can clog with sediment, rust, or calcified deposits over time causing the valve not to close properly. This can cause leak by when not in use.
The pressure switch has a small air hose attached that, if it has any holes in it, will cause the pressure switch to malfunction. This can also result in a washer that fills when not in use, but will also cause the washer to overfill in most cases.
Read through the link provided and let me know if you need further assistance. I have included parts resources and procedures on how to replace each part in the link. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
