    Hi, my kenmore 2.1 cu. ft compact top loader washer will not stop filling! I open the top inside panel and noticed the round tube (goes down to the basket on outside) is loose from the panel. I am not sure if the loose tube causes problem....

Kenmore pressure switches are generally adjustable, the spring inside stretches over time, there is an adjustment screw or nut, clockwise raise, anticlockwise lower, water level.

  • test of the pressure switch outside of operation is difficult and indecisive,
  • switch will still throw when you blow in it,
  • a foot of water height difference is only 0.4psi so a fractional misadjustment of the switch out of the box, or the internal spring stretching just a little, and the water runs over.
Not a solution sorry, something to check for

    yes that is most likely the problem, (100% likely), when you reinstall the hose add a twist tie to keep it in place, the hose works loose with vibrations and movement of the drum during operation

Kenmore won't fill with water


Make sure your water valves are turned on. Check for blockages in the rubber hose and especially where the water enters the washer. Sometimes the chack valve of a washer can collase and restrict the flow of water entering the washer. It is usually located just beyond where the hose connects to the washer. Metal screens can clog and stop water flow. Check and replace as necessary.

The electronics of the washer may also not be advancing to the point where it allows water to enter, The main dial may be faulty. Check and verify all washer settings also

I have a Kenmore washer model 110.98762792 and im having a problem with the cold water. When the water temperature switch is set to the cold/cold position the washer does not fill with cold water. W


Since U get warm water that tells you that the cold and hot water solenoids are both operating. Ergo the anomaly has to be with the device that controls temperature.

Won't stop filling up. Water continues to flow without stopping for cycles


Hello,

Their are 2 possibilites causing it to overflow

1) the water inlet valve that the hoses from the house plumbing attach to is sticking open,when it sticks it will stick open regardless if thier is power to the machine or not,so to determine if that is the problem,start the washer and quickly unplug it,if the water continues to fill, that valve is sticking

2) the water level switch is defective,do the same as far as starting it,if the fill stops when power disconected it's the water level switch that is in need of replacement

Good luck, i hope this helps.

Kenmore washer 90 series continue to fill w/water. Load size won't stop the fill... had to shut off water source. won't get to agitate phase... just want to stay at fill stage... can drain, spin,...


Sounds like the fill switch needs to be replaced. A good way to test it is to set your machine on low fill and see if it fills past 3/4. If it does, it's the fill switch.

Hi I have a problem with my Kenmore washing machine,in particular I can not use hot water anymore. When I use my washing machine hot water does not stop at set water filling level (law, medium,high)...


Please post the model number for your washer. It sounds like your hot water valve has failed and is not closing. Unplug your washer's power cord and turn the hot water spigot that comes out of the wall on. If you still get water filling your washing machine, it's definitely the washer's valve and you will need to install a new set (hot and cold valves are both part of the same assembly).

My kenmore 22442100 top load washer will not stop filling I have to watch it and manually stop water and advance timer past fill cycle please help advise.


your load select switch, has a hose connected to it, it goes to the bottom of tub. This tells water to shut off when it reaches desired water level for load size you selected. This hose gets clogged with soap, you have to open area where switch is, take hose off of switch and blow it out. This should solve your problem. If it does not, then load selector switch should be replaced. I am going with first solution, more common. Thanks

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!
