There are two possible causes of the water not stopping. First is the water inlet valves stuck in the open position and second is the pressure switch not tripping when the correct water level is reached. Turn off or unplug the machine while it is filling and if the water doesn't stop, the water inlet valve/s is/are indeed stuck in the open position. Replacing the water inlet valve assembly should solve the problem.

But if the water stops, the problem is the pressure switch stuck in the empty position. Disconnect power then raise the console up and hinge it at the rear of the machine to access the pressure switch. It is the part with the small clear hose attached to it. Detach the hose and blow air down into it including the pressure switch itself. Replace the pressure switch if the problem persists.

Aside from complete disassembly & cleaning it, try a hot wash on full with nothing in it except a bunch of bleach.

SOURCE: 90 Series Kenmore Washer Not going to spin cycle not draining water

If the unit is still agitating as it is supposed to, this is usually due to a faulty lid switch.

SOURCE: Kenmore 90 series washer is leaking water from the pump. How do I remove the pump to repair or replace? Thanks!

Hi, You can change the pump by disconnecting power, water fill hoses, & take drain hose out od drain. Lay the washer on its back (use some padding under machine so that you do not damage threads on inlet valve. The pump is located on motor and has two clamps holding it. Just remove those clamps and the two drain hoses from the pump. The pump should release from the motor shaft. If the motor shaft is rusty, the pump might not want to come off ease and the shaft will need to be cleaned with sand paper or emery cloth so the new pump will go on easy. Failure to get the pump on all the way will cause the new pump to leak also.
Put your hoses back on the pump and everything should be ok.

I hope this helps you some.
Vic

Kenmore 90 Plus Series washer washer takes forever


is the cold water all the way on?

if so, the first thing to do would be to check the screens in the cold water fill hose and the screen in the cold side of the water valve on the back of the machine. if that is not the problem then replace the water valve.

(turn the water off before taking the hose loose)

Kenmore 90 Series fills with water but would not agitate or spin


You have a problem with the motor coupling. Top-load washers use what's called a direct-drive system, meaning it does not use a belt but what's called a "motor coupling". I probably replace 5 a week because these little guys break because of 2 reasons that i've found.
1) The break mechanism is too dry and causing the basket to stop at a holt, which puts a lot of strain on the coupler.

2) They break because of over-loading. I don't think you're over-loading though because it was find for 5 straight years.

Good luck to you. The repair is kind of hard to do on your own for the first time, so I would call an authorized technician. It will run you anywhere between $90 to $120 at most.

Best of luck!

Kenmore 90 series Water pressure turning up and down


it will switch from hot to cold and back and forth trying to regulate the temp. You probrbly have more pressure in your cold water line than your hot or vise versa. This will cause it to seem to pulse. Dave www.washermd.com
