Kenmore Washer will not stop filling
« on: July 29, 2009, 12:45:13 PM »
At any level setting washer keeps filling and will not stop.  Is it the fill switch?

Sand and trash will get into base of the tub and it will block the water level switch pressure tube. All you need to do is remove the hose from the switch and blow through it. USE THEM LUNGS! Once all the stuff is blowed out you go ahead and replace the hose tightly so the air pressure inside will push against the there switch and shut it down at the propah time. Here is a diagram
