    Already checked these and still doing this. It now just clicks continuously when power switched on. It's a Fisher and Paykel product and been most reliable.

    My washer is less than 3 yrs old. It has worked great till today. It did not fill all the way before it started agitating. I turned it off and reset the cycle and it would not fill at all. If I leave it on it will click back and forth from trying to fill to agitating. I unplugged from power then plugged back in and now it will not do anything at all.

    My washing machine also has the problem of not working at all. I started it, and when it was filled with water is completely stopped. The power light isn't even on. Anything I can do without expert help?

Check the filters on both sides of the inlet water line. Let me know with your results for further assistance if will be needed. Good luck!

    check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)).
    If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!
    Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace it for a new one.
    Good luck

How do I get hot washter

The problem with getting hot water to today's modern washers is really an old problem. In the days of the old top loader that used 20-25 gallons per load, hot water washing was fine. Today's washers only use 4-8 gallons of water. And they bring the water in not in one spurt, but often in short, cyclic bursts while tumbling the clothes to get them uniformly wet. The problem is in the water lines themselves. Water lines are typically uninsulated, and the water between the hot water heater and the washer will cool rapidly when sitting still, especially if the water lines run in a concrete slab or in a crawl space under a house. If may take 2-3 gallons of water before the water gets really hot. Add to that the fact that we have been conditioned to turn our water heaters down to 120F or less and you'll find that HOT water in the washer is barely tepid. Use of a tankless hot water heater at the washer is the best solution, but can be costly to install.

Kenmore 80 series washer doesn't stop filling up with water

Almost went and bought a switch until I widened by search for "kenmore washer 80 series overflow" and came up with this:

Turns out that a couple weeks ago, I had a really unbalanced load that probably shook off the tubing. Anyhow, saved me a trip to the supply store AND cost. Thanks to the original poster!

Washer continues to fill until it overflows

I had same problem today. It was just a tube disconnected from the water level sensor. Raise the top of the washer and look on the left side of the tub. There should be a plastic tube running from the water level sensor to the control panel. Make sure it is connected. If not simple reconnect the tube and you should be good to go.
