As the tub fills with water, the water level switch detects the pressure of the air trapped in the tube. When the pressure reaches a certain point, it turns off the water and starts the wash cycle. As long as the tube that connects to the water level switch does not leak any air, it should be fine.

Water overflows no matter what size load is chosen


Check behind water level switch for a clear plastic vacuum line that attaches to level switch It attaches to the bottom of tub on the other end. As the tub fills , pressure fills the tube up to the level switch and turns off the water at the desired level
If this tube comes off it won't cut off at any level (overfills)

Water will overfill, will not over fill if turned off


You probably have a bad inlet valve (or its solenoid), Load selector switch, or a block in the hose leading from the selector switch to the inlet valve. But also, have a technician check the pressure switch on the selector switch. If this is bad, it will either not cut-off the current from the selector to the inlet valve.

My kenmore washer does not fill completly with water


A machine that overfills or underfills can often have a faulty water level/pressure switch. It's a diaphragm like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to shut off the water. Make sure there is no damage to or obstruction in the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad switch. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Fill switch not working


Chec the water level switch. This is a diaphragm like device that has a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so doe the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to begin appropriate cycle. Make sure the plastic tube is not damaged or obstructed in any way and that there isn't anything in the tube. The switch can be tested for using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Machine randomly overfilled for no reason leaking water out the door. all electronics and water valve are suspect. machine cannot be repaired per the repair man. Solution?


You can check out the water level switch. It could be an intermittent problem with the switch. It is 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 increases, so does the pressure on the air in the tube, and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to begin the appropriate cycle. There is usually a bracket that routes the tube against the tub. Make sure that it is secure. It has been known for the tube to come loose from the bracket and be dangling loose and getting a small hole in it from rubbing something. Make sure that there is no obstruction in the tube and clean out if necessary. The switch can be tested for continuity using a multimeter. If the switch is faulty it must be replaced. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore 80 series overflow


The water level switch senses the water level in the wash tub. It does this through a plastic tube which runs from the switch in the control console down to the side of the outer tub, near the bottom . The tube is filled with air. As water enters the tub it also enters the tube. As water climbs inside the tube, it pushes on the air trapped inside and increases the air pressure. When the air pressure reaches a certain level, it triggers the switch. Inspect the air tube for kinks, breaks or damage. The tube should also be free of water. The tubing should be securely connected to the bottom of the outer tub and to the bottom of the water level switch. If the Tube is full of any water, remove it from the switch and replace it with a new one. Make sure that the new is correctly fitted to the switch.

The switch routes current from the timer control to the temperature switch and the water inlet valve when the tub needs to be filled. Once full, the pressure switch cuts the current and reroutes it to the motor on the timer control to continue the cycle. If the tube replacement dose not improve the fill performance, and it continues to overfill, replace the timer.

Water all in laundry room floor


Did the washer overfill or do did it leak the water out from somewhere? Typically, if the washer is overfilling it is caused by a faulty water level switch. This is 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, pressure increases on the air in the tube and when it reaches a certain point, it activates the switch to turn off the water and signals the timer to agitate. Look for any obstructions in the tube and the switch can be tested for continuity with a multimeter. No continuity means the switch is defective. Hope this helped and best wishes.

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.
