Kenmore 70 Series washer
« on: March 30, 2011, 04:29:56 PM »
Yeah, my Kenmore 110.20702991 washer overflowed yesterday, it looks like the washer is staying in the 'fill' mode, I think it's the agitator but not sure.  Is there a way to verify this?

Open the control panel and fold it to the rear of the cabinet.
At the top of the washer you will see the wires and the water level plastic tube coming from underneath to the control panel.
The plastic tub is probably pinched causing the water level switch to fail.
Re-position the plastic tub and try your fill again.
If it still does not work,the water level switch may need replacing.

Also blow through the tubing to dislodge any sediment that may be blocking the airflow. Re- secure the tubing to the water level switch and pump out the water so the pressure can build again in the tubing and allow for wash mode.
