Washer leaks after installing new lid switch

I recently replaced the lid switch on my Kenmore 90 series washer, as the washer was not draining or spinning. The new switch fixed my problem; however, I think I made a mistake in putting the washer back together. My washer now leaks when it fills and agitates. Also looks like it is filling up with too much water. Any help or tricks as to what I can check to see if I put it back together correctly?

    Disregard. Went back over everything and I had forgot to re-connect the hose for the water level switch back to the console.

My Kenmore washer is not draining or rinsing

Check the lid down safety switch. On the lid there is a small spike that goes through a hole when the lid is down.
Under the hole is a switch that allows the timer to advance and the washer to spin only when the lid is down. Two screws hold the switch in place and the plastic switch will sometimes break and be hanging by the wires.

In other words, it is the timer. That is stopping the advance. You may have to replace the timer.

it mounts to the metal where the lid closes, not on the drum... there's usually two holes where the screws go through... and a third hole where the actuator(plastic post) on the lid goes through to activate the lid switch...

Leaking Washing machine

I would recommend you inspect the washer with the exterior cover removed, so you can actually see where the leak may be coming from. The following link explains how to replace a drain pump on a Kenmore. I submit this to you, because it not only explains how to remove the exterior case of the washer, but in the event that the pump is leaking, it gives you the necessary steps required to install a new one. The pumps are sealed units and not servicebale. If they leak, they need to be replaced:

When you remove the exterior case, the washer will not operate without the lid switch by-passed. You will need to do this in order to fill the wash tub to see where the leak may be coming from. To by-pass the switch, you will need to unplug the washer and jumper the two black wires together at the lid switch connector on the timer. Use aligator clips on the connector pins to do this. With the lid switch by-passed, you can plug the washer back in and start a cycle.

Look for signs of leaking around the drain pump (located in the front under the wash tub) and all hoses. Also inspect the entire perimeter of the wash tub for any possible leaks. Generally, if you have a leak in the front of the washer, its a drain pump or drain hose connection. If you have a leak under the tub you may have a worn tub seal or cracked tub.

I hope you find this information helpful. Hopefully, you will not need any repair parts. If you have any questions, please let me know.

PS Use caution when operating the washer with the case removed. There are exposed electrical components and moving parts.
