Re: kenmore washing machine
It looks like you have a water filler valve problem, with your washer emptied turn the water faucets back on and turn on the washer, if it starts filling turn your timer knob around several times, like you were hunting a cycle you wanted to use. This may make something dislodge from the valve.if blocked If not try the same thing with your water control knob. turning it from hot to cold and then to hot again......I hope these work.....check equally the hose and if that is your problem you may need a new water valve.

Try unplugging the machine and turn the dial all the way around once back to where you would normally start your wash do not pull out the nob to start the cycle until you have plugged the machine back in, this will sometimes reset the main controller (the control nob you turn) if this does not work chances are you need a new controll switch or timer as some people call it, hope this helps.
This can be one of the more difficult error codes to diagnose because there are so many potential causes. Read through the information provided and try to eliminate the easy (and obvious) things first. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this help you.
HINT: One obvious symptom that helps narrow down a potential cause is the fact that the washer does not stop filling with water even when unplugged. More than likely, you have a defective water inlet valve that is causing this.
If the water continues to fill even if unplugged the water valve is sticking and needs replaced. if removing power turns the water off the water level pressure switch is bad or there is something plugging the sensor tube somewhere. Eric
Hello,Sounds like a problem with either the inlet valve or the pressure switch, way to determine which on is while it is filling pull the plug..if water keeps filling it's the inlet valve..if it stops filling it's the pressure switch..If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again..good luck!!

We've now had this happen three times and the exact same thing caused it all three times.
If the water level selector knob hasn't "clicked" into one of the given load levels on the control panel(i.e. the knob is in between levels) it will continue to fill until you discover water everywhere and turn the knob until it "clicks" into a level.
As far as I know, it has nothing to do with loose hoses or bad switches, it's bad design. There seems to be no safety mechanism to turn off the water if you over- or under-shoot the desired water level.
if the water was overflowing from the top of the tub it sounds like the pressure hose came loose. tilt the control panel back and you will prob see the hose that connects to the left side (where you adjust the water level) has come loose. cut about 1/4 inch off of it and re-connect it.
I'd have a look at your water level detector to start with.
Usually a narrow bore hose running from near the bottom of the drum to a pressure switch somewhere near the top of the machine.
Most common problem is that the hose gets blocked with gunk.
With the machine off and drained, try removing the hose and giving both it and the barb on the drum that it came from a good clean through.
