Assuming that it's clean water (rather than dirty water siphoning back out of the drain), I think you need a new inlet valve.

If your machine has both hot and cold water feeds, you'll need to find out which one is still feeding (easiest done by turning the supplies off one at a time while listening whether it makes any difference). If it only has a single feed hose, you're spared that bit of faultfinding.

Look at where the feed hose attaches to the washing machine. The threaded inlet is actually part of the body of the inlet valve. Remove whichever cover gives you best access to this component (on front loaders, access to this bit is usually best from the top) and replace the valve with a new one. They're not normally outrageously expensive.

It sounds like you have a bad timer. If you change the position of the timer and it does not change what is going on the the timer has to be bad. However I am not certain what you mean by the agitator turns all the time. Is it agitating while spinning and draining?

Tub fills with water......that's it.

This is probably a bad timer motor.

Two screws on right/left of head, flip head back. You will see a small motor on the timer that operates when the timer is set. If this isn't running, then you need to replace that or the entire timer. Probably easier to change just the motor.

Best luck in your repair

Kenmore W/D #110.88762793 keeps filling w/ timer in any position

If the washer does not shut off when filling, the pressure switch is usually the culprit. The following link explains:

In many cases, the only problem is the air hose comes loose from the switch, or is cracked or punctured somewhere. If the air hose is intact, and the electrical connections are good (no broken, loose, or corroded wires), then I would recommend replacing the switch. The part is available at Just go to the website and type in the model number you have provided and go to the "Washer/Dryer Control Panel" heading for itme number 13 (part #3952465). I hope this helps you. Please let me know if you require additional assistance.

Agitator always moving

The inner tub on some machines does rotate very slowly while filling to assist with the even distibution of the load. If the agitator is turning back & forth while in fill mode, you could have a timer or transmission problem. You need a tech.
