My Kenmore Washer 110.92597200 will not stop filling which causes water to overflow drum onto floor. It does not seem to respond to Water Level setting.


top loader machines have a small tube running up to the sensor that fills with water and affects the level settings
check that it is not a problem with the inlet solenoid not shutting of the water
call a service technician

Kenmore washer model #110.28882790 is very slow to fill with water. We've checked and cleaned the hose filters. Is there some kind of water sensor? Or hidden filters?


Remove the water line from the INLET valve and start the machine , if there is no proper flow of water then the inlet vavle is not working to open , the filter on the vavle is clogged or the inlet filter is blocked. Also check the voltage on the inlet valve to make sure that the controller unit is outputting correct voltage.
If not replace filter , valve to ensure that the drum get best flow for filling.

I have a Kenmore front loading washer. I normally leave the front door open when not in use. I came home the other night to water dripping from my dining room ceiling (Washing machine is on second floor...


The water solenoid could be defective. A solenoid is an electrical switch that pulls a shaft out of the water line to let the water flow in. The timer controls this along with water level sensors. That solenoid is a big electric magnet that operates when the power is applied to the electric coil and it snaps the shaft out of the water line allowing water to flow. It also compresses a spring around the shaft and when the power is removed from the coil, the spring snaps the shaft(valve) back into the seat of the water line. If the spring is weak or broken or blocked by debris from hard water, it does not close all the way and allows water to leak. Very similar to a leaky faucet.i expect that the solenoid will have to be replaced.

Water large amounts on floor of shut off machine


To sufficiently inspect your washer to determine where to leak may be coming from, please review the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

If there is a huge gush of water coming from the washer as soon as you begin the fill cycle, this is commonly caused by a small air hose on the side of the washer drum that connects to the pressure switch. If this air hose comes loose,the water will pour from the wash tub as it begins to fill. This is an easy fix, if that is the only problem.

Another cause, can be a water inlet valve that is leaking by, or a pressure switch that does not keep the water supply shut off when not in use. This will cause the tub to fill up and spill over. The following link explains how to check for this as well:

Read through the information provided and let me know if you are having problems determining the cause of your problem. Please post back with your MODEL NUMBER so that I may be able to accurately determine how your washer is configured. I hope you find this information helpful.

Tip the washer onto the front and you will be able to see through the bottom to look for leaks.

Water leaks


I had similar issue. Fill tube running from the bottom of detergent tray to the washer drum was plugged.... (by a sock!!!). How did it get there? I'll tell you. You see the drum seal (around the inside of the door) is not a tight seal. You can actually reach up behind it from where it meets the top of the drum. Anyway in my case, a sock made it's way through that seal and outside the drum and into the drum containment vessel. So when the drum spun (to dry the clothes and empty the water) it made a terrible noise. The sock became lodged at the base of the fill tube opening and plugged it thus not allowing any water into the drum. Instead, when filling, the water just flowed out from the bottom of the detergent tray and onto the floor. I hope this helps.
