The clear plastic tube runs from the pressure switch to the air dome on the lower right-hand side of the wash tub. If the air dome end of the hose were loose, water would begin to spill out of the bottom of the washer when the level in the tub reaches only a few inches.

If the washer is filling the tub completely, but your pressure switch is not shutting the water off, you will need to confirm you have a good electrical connection, and that you do not have a small hole in the air hose somewhere. It is possible for the air hose to develop leaks where it contacts the washer casing and begins to chafe. If your electrical connections to the pressure switch are secure, trace the wires back to the timer and make sure you have good continuity. There should be a wiring diagram located under the operator console. Please refer to the following link for instructions on how to access the inside of your washing machine:

I know the instructions are for replacing a motor coupling, but the steps are still the same for opening the console and removing the outside washer casing. Please let me know, if you require further assistance. If you don't get anywhere with this advice, please post back with your complete model number. It may help me further with diagnosing your problem. I hope this provides you with a solution.

PS I apologize for taking so long getting back to you.

Kenmore Elite Oasis topload washer overfills. I have replace the pressure switch hose but it did not solve the problem.

If you have gotten that far, you've done good.! I'd say to look at the painted screw on the pressure switch.. Needs to be turned. In clockwise direction to make sure diapham closes.. Or it's possible the circuit board is gone out..

I have a Kenmore model 70 washer, I changed the mixing valve, and now the washer is overfilling, and will continue to flow water. causing the washer to overflow,

Check the small air hose on the pressure switch inside the operator console. The following link explains:

The hose can sometimes come loose when doing maintenance, or from years of vibration. If the air hose is intact, check for any splits, cracks or holes in the air hose. If the air hose is not air tight, the pressure switch will never detect the water pressure differential from the wash tub as it fills. If it never detects the pressure, it will not shut off the water inlet valves.

If you have any questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate under the wash tub rim under the lid) and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Fl code on kenmore calypso cannot clear

this is the fl code on a whirlpool calypso which is probably the same since kenmore is just a name,, whirlpool built the machine if u didnt know kenmore doesnt build anything they just put their name on things... (FL is a flood conditon.) FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Kenmore 80 series model# 110.28803890

Hello. Yes there is a fill level pressure switch. It is pressure activated by the pressure of water rising in a tube as the water rises in the tub.It's easy to find and easy to replace. Look for the tube and follow it to the switch. Parts for Kenmore are available at 1-800-516-9625 or at http:\
Good luck.
