Kenmore Elite 110.22974100 usually over fills no matter what the water level setting is

    Likely the water level sensor. I assume there is a valve for hot and a separate valve for cold. If neither shuts off, must be the sensor? Can I find this part by searching for "water level sensor" at Sears parts direct?

There is a water level sensor in these machines that can go bad and let the machine overfill. Another possible cause could be the water valves are not shutting off completely. This could be due to a stuck valve or the water level sensor.

Kenmore elite oasis washer will fill with water and skip the wash cycle. It will spin and empty then turn off. we have seen the code UL what can be done to fix this?


UL=Ultra Level of water?
usually its just foam in sensor tube,as prior using too much or wrong type of detergent(for hand wash,or else). Do few cycles with just and only water,or open machine and blow tubes to level "sensor".

I have a Kenmore Elite Total Care System Top Load washer, and for the past two days, the water level will not fill past the medium level even if the setting is on Large level.


The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

No matter what the temp setting is at it only has very hot water


Your water temp is determined by 2 things. First the hook up to your water supply. If you are able to turn off the hot water valve that feeds the unit and then select a cold water only wash, do you get cold water?? If not then someone hooked up the hoses to 2 hot water feeds. If hot and cold feeds are installed right, the second thing is your computer which monitors the incoming temp through the boards atc control and a thermister. If you select cold, and only get a hum and the cold water valve is on, you may have to clean the screens in the valve of any sediment. If no hum, and no cold, dead solenoid on valve, but that would throw an error code usually. All fills are monitored by the board and usually begin with a hot/wrm mix and then changeover to a monitored cold temp , about 70 degrees.

Water level won't fill past the lowest setting.


you may need to replace the level selector switch itself... if it has a reset option ( usually near the large side of the button, w/it plugged in, turn the switch all the way to reset, unplug the machine and then plug it back in. ) this has been known to work on occasion....hope this helps

My Kenmore 70 is also overfilling...


Sounds like it could be a faulty water level switch. A defect or an obstruction can mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. This switch raises the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level rises, the pressure increases on the air in the plastic tube. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch and turns off the water. It also signals the washer to begin the wash cycle. Clean out any obstruction in the plastic tube or replace the water level switch. Hope this helped.

Kenmore 80 series model# 110.28803890


Hello. Yes there is a fill level pressure switch. It is pressure activated by the pressure of water rising in a tube as the water rises in the tub.It's easy to find and easy to replace. Look for the tube and follow it to the switch. Parts for Kenmore are available at 1-800-516-9625 or at http:\www.sears.com.
Good luck.

Kenmore Elite HE3 washer


set the washer to fill. open the lid and depress the lid switch. might be in the rear of the cover or on the side. watch to see where the water level comes to. once the tub is filled, the water height switch operates the timer motor for the different cycles.
