Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

The washer stopped all of the sudden. It was full of water, but even when I unplugged the washer and recycled the machine, it would not fill up. It makes a humming noise when I try to start the machine, like the pump or motor is bad.

If it fills and drains then I would suspect the motor coupler is bad, if it's a direct-drive washing machine. Most of them are, kenmore 80 or 90 series.

My LG TROMM Hot water continually fills even after machine is turned off and unplugged. I have to shut off water supply to stop it.


Unplug the washer removing all electrical power from the machine. Turn the water back on and confirm that water is still entering the machine.

If the condition is true no power to washer and water enters machine it is very likely that the fill solenoid has failed.

this part is not that difficult to replace.

Washer seems to cycle fine but the water will over fill


Hello, fill the washing machine with water and when the water is about 1/2 full of water,unplug the washers power cord from the wall outlet.if the water keeps flowing into the washing machine with the power cord pulled the "fill valve"(where the hot and cold hoses are attached to the washer) has mechanically stuck open and will have to be replaced. if the water shuts off when you remove it's power cord from the wall outlet,try plugging the washer in and out a couple more times and if the water stops each time the fill valve indicates as being good.

Thanks

My GE washer wont stop filling in any cycle. Even if you pull out the plug. Leaks everywhere. I blew into water level switch hose and it clicks. Model number WBXR1060T. Thank you


If water continues to fill and you have unplugged the washer from the wall then your fill valve is stuck open and needs to be replaced. Turning off the water at the wall faucet should stop the water. The fill valve is what the hoses are attached to at the washer.

Water fills washer even when it is unplugged


Replace fill valve. It is located where the water hooks up to washer. Easy to change. The valve gets plugged with sediment and needs to be replaced.
