Default Kenmore 90 plus series washer
Model Number: 11028932790   Brand: Kenmore   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a Kenmore 90 plus series. This morning I started a load of laundry. When I returned more than 20 min. the washer was still filling to the point that I had water all over the floor. What I have been able to determine is that when the washer is filling up it never stops. If I manually stop the washer by pushing in the nob then turn it to the next phase after filling it will go until it starts filling up again and never go beyond that point. I read on a post somewhere that a kenmore series 70 with the sam problem they checked the preasure valve. Looking on the Kenmore parts site it doesn't look like that part exist or it is caled something else.

What part determines when to stop filling and how do I test it?

Thanks

The part that tells the water valve to shut off is called the water level switch(pressure switch). You also need to make sure nothing has happened to the hose that goes from the water level switch down to the outer tub. Sometimes they can get a hole in them and the air pressure that's required to activate the switch is never achieved. The hose could also get blocked with lint, etc.

The hose looks like it attached to the switch and the tub. I gave it a tug and it didn't come off the connection to the tub so I believe that isn't the problem. I took to the water level switch off and will replace it.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Water level switches very rarely fail, unless a hole develops in the diaphragm. As Frank stated, a clogged air hose, or a hole in the hose will cause an overfill situation. But another common cause of overfilling is a fouled water inlet valve. Debris from the water source will prevent the solenoid from completely closing. You can test for this by starting a fill, and unplugging the machine. If it continues to fill after you unplug it, replace the water valve.

I found a crack in the hose. I replaced it and it seems to be working now.


Thanks

Thanks for the idea about unlplugging the washer...however once I unplugged the washer, the water stopped. I am able to drain it, but I have to trick the washer by manually advancing the control dial. With that scenario, what do you think is the cause?
