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.

SOURCE: Washer water overflow.

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.

SOURCE: Kenmore washer won't stop filling w/ water

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.

You can find information on the parts at partselect.com.

You can buy parts from them or find them locally if you want.

Thanks,

Tim

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 80 series washer doesn't stop filling up with water


Almost went and bought a switch until I widened by search for "kenmore washer 80 series overflow" and came up with this:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1206464-kenmore_80_series_overflow

Turns out that a couple weeks ago, I had a really unbalanced load that probably shook off the tubing. Anyhow, saved me a trip to the supply store AND cost. Thanks to the original poster!

This problem is generally caused by a pressure switch failure. The pressure switch controls when to shut the water inlet valve off at the appropriate level and is located behind the load level or water level selector knob on the operator console. Before assuming, however, that you have a defective switch, read the following link first:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r762094-washer_overflows

In the majority of the problems I have experienced with an overflow condition on a washer, it has been caused by the air hose coming off the pressure switch. Hopefully, this will be the case with your washer and will not require parts. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.
