Hi got an kenmore 80 series washer that will overflow. when it adds water
it doesn't stop at the set small/medium/full loads, its just keeps filling
full of water until it overflows. I bought a new water level switch and it
nver fixed the problem what else could it be the problem?
When you say it overflows, you mean over the top of the tub and on the floor
or down the drain. If it's the drain, if the drain pipe is below the level
of the tub, it will never shut off but just continue to run the overflow
water down the drain. If not this, isn't there a plastic tube that runs
from the tub to the overflow switch. If this develops a hole in it, air
pressure is not applied to the switch to shut it off.
I followed your advice and inspected the plastic tube. At first I couldn't
see anything wrong so I took it off and placed it in a bucket of water and
used compressed air through it, Sure enough there were bubbles. I didn't
have an replacement hose handie so I used some ski-doo gasline hose until I
get a replacement. Thanks.
