SOURCE: water runs into tub but does not fill?

be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.

SOURCE: my kenmore 800 washer stops mid fill. i push in

sounds like the timer has a bad spot in it probaby a factory thin spot in the dial
it's where the coil or filiment has a gap even a micro gap or wear spot can cause this

SOURCE: water doesn't stop filling tub and tub overflows

Hello,Sounds like a problem with either the inlet valve or the pressure switch, way to determine which on is while it is filling pull the plug..if water keeps filling it's the inlet valve..if it stops filling it's the pressure switch..If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again..good luck!!

SOURCE: Washing Machine Keeps Filling with Water through Detergent dispen

This machine has a water valve that works on vaccuum from the tub. You will see a small clear hose that runs from the side of the tub up to this valve. This valve is adjustable to change the water level in the tub to desired setting on some machines, but if it goes bad, it will not shut off, thus overflowing the tub. Find this valve and replace it if adjustment does not work.

Hi. I have a Kenmore Elite top-loading washer and in every wash load there are flakes of brown stuff, not rust but more like leaves. There does not seem to be anything wrong with the outflow. Thanks!


Run a few washes of rags or towels with plenty of BLEACH & VINEGAR (two quarts of white) a couple of times to remove most bacterial debris from your machine. There is no part of the machine that "creates" brown flakes, so it is either in the water inflow (check the water) and the way to see what is coming into the machine is to do a "load" without any clothes! Just have the tub fill and look at what fills.....Sounds like something under the tubs upper lip that's coming-off and into your tub during the wash and agitation cycles.

Tub won't fill with water


You have a bad inlet valve. The valve is behind the hoses, you cant get to it one of two ways. Either through the top by removing the knobs and screws and face plate. or by removing the panel behind the hose
