Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Kenmore Elite top loading washer keeps filling with water even though I switch it to the next cycle. It spins and drains fine during spin cycle, but keeps on filling with water. Also, the spinner/agitator starts as soon as the lid is closed for the wash cycle even though the water has not filled up. Once the water does fill up to the correct level, it stops filling, but then restarts when the water drains out even though it may be a spin cycle.

Its suppose to start with lid down,the draining may be a faulty water level switch so this needs replaced.

    I dont think its supposed to start agitating even if the water has not filled up (dry clothes). Also, the wter stops filling when it reaches the required level, so the water level switch mmay be working fine. But it starts refilling when the water is drained, and fills even during the spin cycle when its not supposed to take in water.

Water drains during spin cycle, but tub does not spin and appears to have dropped down. Machine does aggitate.


If you can move the tub by hand laterally - the rear main bearing has likely failed - or the drum rollers are worn.

The pressure switch is mis-reporting the water level to the ECU.

Test/replace the pressure switch.

Brand new kenmore HE2 front load washer - keeps filling


Either your pressure switch is bad, or the air line that connects to the presuure switch has come loose. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side rear of the washer with the top cover removed. It is a brown colored, disk shaped, device with an electrical connection and an air hose connection. Sometimes this hose comes loose in shipping, or the electrical connection may be loose. Without it, the washer will continue to fill and will NOT shut off. Now...if you just purchased this unit, DO NOT do anything that will void the manufacturer's warranty. It may be an inconvenience, but I would recommend you get the appliance repairman to come in and take a look at it. That way...you won't be held liable if something were to break. This is, however, usually a simple problem and not considered major. I hope this reassures you some. Post back with comments if you have any further questions/concerns.
