From your description, it sounds like there may be a problem with the inlet water solenoid valve(s). They can stick after several years of use. The se valves are located in the machine, just inside where you connect the water hoses.
it's syphoning caused by the drain hose in the stand pipe (wall) too far.
pull the drain hose out and stick in 6 inches only and secure to one of the fill hoses so it does not go back down too far. This will solve your problem
Make sure your drain hose to the drain pipe is higher than the water in the tub if not it will keep running and going out the drain.
Also try taking the hose off the level switch and blow in it to be sure it's not stoped up. If is it won't let the level sw cut off. air should go through it. Good luck
When you unpluged the power and it ddn't keep runing the water valve should be ok.
I had the same problem too on one of my washers (not kenmore) it didn't complete cycle because someone turned off the hot water valve. soo i turned on the hot water and it worked fine. keep in mind that mine wasn't a kenmore. hope this helps some...
the main drain hose may be stuck to far down inside the drain tube.if the machine is not over flowing and flooding your plaace.then pull the drain hose up to the level of the control head.with the machine off,you should here water running out once that has stopped restart your washer put keep the hose up and it should stop filling when it gets full.
When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it. Good luck!
the water is draining back to the ocean. The drain hose was not emptied properly from its last use. Put the machine in spin cycle (about 5 minutes) only to spin out the water from the outer tub completely and retry washer. If still problem, then visual check drain hose that it still has a "rising" section higher in altitude than the water level of inner tub (when working properly) before it makes a U-turn downward to send back to the ocean. You can also test the drain hose by putting machine in fill mode and crimping off the hose (fold hose over) to simulate a good drain hose. At this test, you should not "feel" water running through the hose if successfully crimped.
