Hi,

This is probably due to a pressure sensor fault, control board fault, or maybe as simple as a pipe come off.

The pressure sensor operates by air pressure building up in a sealed tube, and shuts off the water supply valve when the water presure reaches a limit.

Turn off machine, and drain the drum by placing the outlet pipe in a low bowl.

Remove the plug before opening machine.

Unscrew the screws along the top rear of the machine, and slide the lid back to take off.

Inspect the small hoses around the drawer area for wear, damage and if they are still attached. Order replacements if they are damaged.

The pressure switch will be connected to the end of one of them. It can be tested by simply removing it’s supply pipe and blowing hard down it. With a test meter, it can be tested for correct functioning.

If this is not the problem, it is likely the control board is faulty, or very rarely the valve may need replacing if it never turns the water off, and is constantly stuck.

If this leads to you solving the problem, please take a moment to rate as Fixya! so others may follow this advice. Thanks.

I have a kenmore ultra fabric care 80 series washing machine.. it will not stop filling up with water.. I have to turn off the water or it will over flow. it is very used machine... Please Help...


most likely a problem with the diaphragm of the water shutoff solenoid
diaphragms are available or get a complete unit
if it has hot and cold solenoids ( hot and cold water hoses ) and you are not using the hot just swap the hoses over and only use the hot water settings
that way the cold water comes in through the hot water solenoid

Kenmore 44832 hot water won't stop.


If your washer is overfilling, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Water-level switch
Water-inlet valve Adefect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able toshut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. Ifthis occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. Intime, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you needto replace the valve.

Water-level switch Adefect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that itcan't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switchsenses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragmdevice with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and thebottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tubincreases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When thepressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts offthe water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You caneither clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-levelswitch.

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).

Took water intake valve assembly out to replace - confirming white wire connectors go on the cold and the black on the hot ?


Try it the way you said if it that doesn't work reverse connections. No damage can be done. You'll get cold water if asking for hot and vice versa.

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!

1)right wont be a water surge if the water is coming from underneath washer when it is switched of could be that you have a leak and what it is doing is water is collect around the bottom and then spilling over so tip washer back fill it up and see were its coming from, 2)your hot water valve could be sticking on which in that case needs replacing take your lid off and when washer is off try and listen for water flowing through pipe
