Kenmore washer 90 series continue to fill w/water. Load size won't stop the fill... had to shut off water source. won't get to agitate phase... just want to stay at fill stage... can drain, spin,...


Sounds like the fill switch needs to be replaced. A good way to test it is to set your machine on low fill and see if it fills past 3/4. If it does, it's the fill switch.

Just got a new maytag bravos washer and it will not go past the sensing stage and as it puts water into the washer it drains as fast as it goes in


You must make sure the drain hose is above the water level and not in the water in the "P" trap of the house drain. There must be air to prevent siphoning. The drain hose should not go more than about 12" down in the drain tube.

My GE WCSR2090D top load washer has flooded our house in the past, and when looked at by a repair man he said nothing seemed wrong... so we continued to use it and it now leaks/floods only once in every...


You might have a partially clogged drain past your drain hose
(In the wall etc)
Thats overflowing behind the washer.
Watch the drain for a few washings and see if it overflows
It may be second or third or fifth load. Its hard to catch
If this was helpful please rate me.

Our washer fills and drains at the same time.


Hi, Based on the limited info I'd suspect the drain hose is lying down on the floor or is pushed down into the stand-pipe too far. If the drain hose is below the water level entering the washer it will siphon out immediately. The drain hose must be above the highest point the washer has to fill, and if it is in a stand pipe insure it isn't pushed in too far, just a few inches and then secure it without completely covering over the opening or that too will cause it to siphon. Do you hear any motor operating while this is happening ? If you answered NO, this further support's the idea of the washer siphoning out the water it is supposed to fill with. Check your drain hose. Let me know if this was indeed the case and if so please rate the solution accordingly. Thank's for coming to "fixya" and good luck. Macmarkus :)

Washer stops early cycle. In the first minute or two while it is filling with water it stops. If it gets past that stage it works fine.

Series 110 (old) Kenmore washer does not drain...


The drain pump may be clogged. I had the same problem and found a bunch of polyester fiber fill from a comforter my wife washed clogging up the water pump. Once cleared, it worked fine.

My Frigidaire GLTR1670A stops when it gets to rinse???


mchacon, start with the pump. Remove the lower panel and the pump will be on the right. Grab a pan and some towels and remove the hoses going to it. Clean out any coins, lent and whatever from the drain hose trap. Check the pumps impeller for lint, pins etc. This model has a pressure switch that will not advance the timer if it detects water in the tub. Also both fill valves must be on. You will not be able to see it under the basket. This picture is from another cat that had the same problem....Catriver..post back.
