Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
This could be the water level switch or the small flexible plastic tube that goes from the water level switch to the side of the tub. this tube may have worked loose if the washer is vibrating too much.

I'd have a look at your water level detector to start with. Usually a narrow bore hose running from near the bottom of the drum to a pressure switch somewhere near the top of the machine. Most common problem is that the hose gets blocked with gunk. With the machine off and drained, try removing the hose and giving both it and the barb on the drum that it came from a good clean through. A.

i am a recently retired engineer of 20 years and this sounds like a blockage to start with, when you remove the lid you will find a round disc like object (pressure switch) with a thin pipe coming from it going down to the bottom end of the machine, this pipe as either come off or is blocked somewhere. drain the machine totally, clear out the pipes, make sure there are no damaged parts to the pipes, then make sure all are fitted properly, start the machine off again and watch for water level shutting off near the bottom of the door, start with the above, if this doesn't cover the fault there may be an issue with the timer or electrical fault elsewhere/? hope this helps, if so rate me please, thank you

Check your pressure hose. To check the first end, pull your washer forward and tilt it back about 45 degrees. On the right hand side towards the back you'll see a clear hose coming down and "pugging" into the tub. Make sure it's in place. To check the other end, open the console and make sure the other end is plugged in to your water level switch ( far left hand side of the console. If you took the cabinet off to replace your coupler, make sure you didn't pinch the hose against the back panel when you put the cabinet back on.

if the water was overflowing from the top of the tub it sounds like the pressure hose came loose. tilt the control panel back and you will prob see the hose that connects to the left side (where you adjust the water level) has come loose. cut about 1/4 inch off of it and re-connect it.

The problem is most likely the water level switch. This would be the case if the water is able to be turned off with the dial on the washer and not running all the time.
If it is running all the time and you have to turn it off at the water line valve, then the problem is a stuck water fill valve.
If you need more help, post a comment.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly
You will have to open the top panel for steps below
Water level control is handled by the water level pressure switch inside the top panel. It is about 3.25 inches in diameter, has 3 wires connected to it and a hose that looks like a small vacuum line.
Check that vacuum looking line for any holes, kinks or disconnects.
You will need about 3 feet of the same knid of line available from any autoparts store for this test.
Remove the machine side hose and connect the 3 ft hose you just obtained. DO NOT drop the machine hose into the machine.
Place the timer on the wash cycle and start the cycle
Result = fill
Force air into the hose orally until you hear a click.
Result = fill stop agitation begin
If it does not pass this test then the pressure switch is bad.
If water never stops flowing the water inlet valve has debris internally and will probably have to be replaced.
Don't forget to reconnect the machine side hose to the pressure switch.
Thanks for using FixYa!
Then remove the vacuum
