Question about Washing Machines
Hi, my Kenmore 70 series model 11082870120 washing machine won't stop filling water. I tried all levels, and did not work, so I changed de water level switch and also the temperature control switch, but still keeps on overflowing. what else could be wrong. I turned on the timer and it works, because it controls the on and of , and the last spin cycle till it stops.
Remove the pressure switch hose and blow into it. Is it hard to blow through?
In the bottom right rear of the outer tub there is an air dome where the other end of the pressure switch hose is connected. The air dome can become clogged and prevent the pressure switch from working properly.
Also inspect the hose for any cracks splits or pin holes.
To access the air dome remove the cabinet shell as follows:
I will skip console removal as is seems you already know how...
With the console lifted;
1. You will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.
2. There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.
3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.
In the bottom right rear of the outer tub you will find the air dome.
If I can assist you further, please let me know
