Hi ,

I do appreciate your response to my dilemma. I used a process of elimination. I prayed and then eliminated all thoughts of not being able to solve the problem.
I then read as many blogs that i could get my hands on and started with what seemed to be the simplest task first. After taking the lid switch out of the machine I noticed that it was in three separate pieces and the spring fell out- viola, viola!!!
I also noticed that the plastic casing which was used to hold everything together had a few broken teats on it. So i put it all back together as best i could and taped it up with some brown packaging tape and a few garbage ties and there you have it. It works like a champ.

Thanxs for everything especially the inspiration.

PS:Necessity is still the mother of all inventions. When all else fails Prayer still Prevails.

How do I check and replace the water level sensor on my Kenmore 80 Series Hvy Dty Washer?


Try eserviceinfo.com/index as per your 80 series. There are various downloads there that may help access the water level sensor which is most likely the problem.

Kenmore 80 series washer will not fill. replaced


You will have to have an electrical test done. If it's not filling, that means there's no current getting to the fill valve. Have a qualified technician do an electrical test. But also, have him test the timer, too!

Kenmore serie 80.does not stop filling water in and does not star


Yeah I've seen that happen a many of times. Take the back of the control panel off and where your load size selector is you'll find a little hose that's suppoed to be attached to the side of it. just reattach it and you'll be back up and running.

Almost all washing machines use a pressure tube that tells the washer when to stop filling with water. If the tube comes off for some reason the washer will never stop filling and that's an instant flood if you don't notice it quick enough. Also a hole or puncture of any kind can be causing ti to never stop filling as well.

Hope this helps

I replaced the lidswitch on a Kenmore 80 series washer. Nothing


Possible bad pressure switch. Turn unit on and jump out 2 wires at a time (3 wires go to it). See if any of your combinations get unit running (one of them will cause water valve to open); if so then that is your problem. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.

Kenmore 80 Series will not fill up with water


if your washer will agitate when set to fill but not fill, then your pressure switch is bad.
also you may want to check and see if you are getting both hot and cold to your washer.

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

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:

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.
