Yes, I think that rubber tube measures water level. But I've never changed one. Good luck.

SOURCE: Kenmore washer only will fill to a small load water level

This is Joyce
This is your water sensor, it is going off before it lets the machine fill up, if not this then the control on your machine that determines the size load you selected. go to kenmore.com download your manuel. see what you can find out about the machine.
let me know if you need any other assistance
thanks

Have you tried cleaning out in and around the inlet on the washer (where the cold hooks into the washer)? We had the same problem. When I removed the cold water hose, I cleaned out the end of it and the inlet on the washer-there should be a small screen on the washer side. It does it on cold because with the hot, a hot water heater filters most of the debris out of the water before it comes out and the cold water is not filtered. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Washer is over filling.

AV,

Yup! I know what's going on (the tip off was when you said, "The water does stop when I push the timer off"). See? the timer, as I'm sure you know, supplies or "directs" power to each component in the washer... kinda like a conductor does an orchestra. When you push the timer knob to "Off", you shut down the symphony thereby removing power from all of the components. Make sense?

When you set the water level and pull the knob, the level switch tells the timer that the tub is empty and request water. The timer complies and sends power to the water valve. When the water level is "satisfied", the level switch tells the timer to remove power from the valve and start the "agitation" cycle.

Here's what's happening, the level switch isn't talking to the timer. I think the part number is 22002705, but I'm not sure because I don't have the full model number. Call you local appliance retailer and provide them with the full model number to be sure, OK? Since you already have the machine apart, it'll be easy to replace...

Oh yeah, here's a picture of it... see if this one matches the one on you machine. This might confirm the part number.

And another thing, now that you've experienced a washer flood (ain't it fun?), you might want to consider getting yourself one of these. They're super easy to install and it'll provide that extra bit of insurance against this happening to you again.

Hoover 705 , overfills and fllods laundry can it be fixed


On my hoover 200m (top loader) I had a similar problem. I turned off the machine & unplugged it. Closed water taps both hot & cold. Manually emptied machine with large cup. Undid bottom outlet hose by unclipping.The residual water will come out! I undid the 3 screws on the control panel. Tilted the control panel forward. The water level is manual control using a diagaphram pressure control to set water level. This had a hose. I disconnected both ends and used a bicycle pump to blow air thorough it. Underneath I disconnected where the hose goes into machine (clips) and also blew air from the top to check it was clear. After reconnecting everything the machine now does not stop filling and does not overflow anymore. Hope this helps.

Hoover Elite 920 top loading washing machine will not fill. I can manually fill the machine and it will run through a cycle until fill is required for rinse cycle and then I have to manually fill again I...


first check the water is switched on to the machine. If it is then you most likely have a faulty water valve. Switch all power off and remove the top panel should be 4 screws or so. If it has 1 valve then replace it.

HI We have a Hoover 700LD washing machine that wont fill or wash. Will drain and spin. Any ideas? thanks


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to check your water inlet valve and make sure it is not defective. Check your water pump and make sure it is working right. The pump pumps the water into the washer.

My washer will not fill with water or do any functions when i turn the dial


My Hoover 7700l ...on "fill" cycle, the water dribbles in. Takes hours to fill so we use buckets to reach the required level.

Tried: Swapping cold and hot water inlet hoses, making sure that dial is in "hot". This solved the problem for filling, BUT when "rinse cycle appoars, it's back to the dribble again.

any ideas?

Top loader 600MB fills water but wont wash or spin.Water fills to right level and timer turns o.k.


Check the lid switch for proper operation. If the switch is bad or not being actuated by the lowered lid, it will block operation of the machine.

Kenmore 80 Series - water wont fill to full load


remove edge decore trims from left and right side front of control panel8b608f8.jpg
remove phillips screws from bottom corners of contol panel
remove knob from water level selector
raise control panel ~1 inch then flip over backwords on pivots
depress lock tab on right/underside of water level control body where it touches metal mount plate
rotate water level control body 45deg anti clockwise
pull body off
top side of body next to knob shaft is 1/8 hex head bolt
turn clockwise to rais water level
anticlockwise to lower water level
machine can be operated with this part not fitted so can check level. fill, adjust screw, fill will start again, adjust screw, until water level is correct
reinstall in reverse order
Incidentally, the cause is a VERY small wire spring inside the control body that is not really up to the task, and stretches over years.
Its a common occurrence, and I make this repair, on callouts, no parts required, couple times a month you may have to flip the switch to reset to get the water to restart filling
