Re: kenmore washing machine
Please rate my solution this is a great one...
the drain hose is either
a)not routed higher than the tub of the washer b)it is clamped tight to a drain hose of various materials
c)too much excess drain tube is pushed into drain hose and extends all the way to botton of drain pvc.
See the installation instructions under drain requirements www3.sears.com

IF YOU ARE SURE THE WATER SUPPLY IS ON. SHUT OFF WATER TO MACHINE AND REMOVE HOSES ON BACK OF MACHINE AND CK SCREEN ON VALVE THEY CAN BECOME PLUGED AND WILL BLOCK WATER FLOW. PUT THE HOSES IN A BUCKET AND TURN ON JUST TO BE SURE IT IS NOT ANOTHER PLUMBING PROBLEM.
the water pressure/level switch contacts are welded together,usually the load selector switch for the amount of water lets it fill to a determined water level and the water level creates pressure in a tube from the tub to this switch and stops water fill and starts the wash agitation cycle,replace this switch inside the control panel
NF = No Fill the control board receives signaling for the washer during the water fill cycle. With most cycles the depth of water is around 3.5 inches in the wash basket. I know a Bulky Wash cycle selection will fill the wash tub to a high fill which is about 7.5 inches of water in the wash basket.
Is the washer filling the machine with any water? Do you hear water entering the machine? If you are doing a cold water fill and there is no or very little water in the wash basket with the NF error code. Try a Warm or Hot fill and see if the machine will fill and start the wash cycle.
Assuming you are doing cold water wash loads. You could have a water line block at the inlet screen or a failed cold water inlet valve which will not open. Try the above and let me know the results..........Rich
Hi, It does sound like the contacts in the water level switch are sticking. This switch is activated by presure not vaccum. You can try and bow into the hose leading to the level switch and see if it has any restriction but, it is more likely the level switch is going bad.
Do you have any problem on the initial starting of you wash cycle?
Let me know if this helps at all or I can answer any more questions.
Can you hear the pump running if not the machine may be syphoning out, if the outlet is into the down pipe too far this can cause it to syphon. The outlet should only be into it by about 6". The machine will fill with more water on the rince than the wash cycle that will cause the problem. If you can hear the pump running the machine mite be over filling there may a blockage in the presure system if you take the lid off (making sure the powers turned off) you will find a round switch with a thin hose comming off it tace the hose and you should find a small bottle this may be blocked. Hope this helps you.
Having the same problem. Any ideas at all? It's really frustrating.
