Kenmore 2.1 cu. ft Washer water won't stop filing, cycle doesn't start...

I have the washer for almost two years until now water won't stop filling till it spills out. Is it something wrong?

    My Kenmore 2.1 cu. washer has been working for 3 years until now. Water keeps filling till it spills. I checked the air hose it's loose on the pressure switch end, so I reattached it. I tested the washer, it works but on one load only, water wont' stop filling on the second load. The pressure switch seems in good condition. I tried find the level selector as describe but not able to locate it. Any help is appreciated. Thank You.

Most likely cause
kenmore pressure sensors work off a tube that runs from the bottom of the drum to the sensor, either the tube has come off the sensor body inside the control panel

  • open control panel reattach tube, wrap wiretie or twisttie to keep in plpace
or less likely cause
kenmore level sensors fail
there is a spring inside that stretches over time and mis reads, it is adjustable
  • control panel is still open from previous check
  • remove level selector from control panel, usually an unlock latch on the right side, rotate 45deg counter clockwise withdraw.
  • there is a 1/8 inch bolt head, turn right raise water level, turl left lower water level

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.

Are you happy with the Kenmore 800 4.0 cu.ft. top load washer?


For large capacity, a front loader would be your best bet. An HE2 by Kenmore should be sufficient. If a toploader is overloaded, it's more likely to do damage. Also a Whirlpool Duet would work. Whirlpool makes Kenmore, so shop for the best price, (they are the same inside)
