Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Height of exit hose (behind machine) should be approx 3 feet from ground level when you are re-fitting.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

This problem is commonly attributed to a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug.

A replacement lid switch can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $25. The part number is 3949238. Just use the "Search by Model Number" feature when you go to the site. If you do not wish to order on line, take the part number provided to your nearest appliance parts retailer. This is a very common part that they should have in their inventory. For instructions on how to replace a lid switch, you can refer to this link: http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch If you still need assistance, please contact me and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 Series will not fill up with water

if your washer will agitate when set to fill but not fill, then your pressure switch is bad.
also you may want to check and see if you are getting both hot and cold to your washer.

SOURCE: kenmore washer...the water just runs it never fills up.

I have seen this problem numerous times on service calls. It sounds like you have a siphoning problem. The key symptom is the wash tub that continously attempts to fill, but cannot achieve the proper water level. This is often caused by not having an air gap on your drain line, improper placement of the drain hose, or a standpipe that is too small in diameter. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

If you place the drain hose in the standpipe too far, or seal the top of the standpipe, this can cause a vacuum which will cause the symptoms you describe. A tell-tale sign will be a sucking noise as you pull the drain hose from the standpipe. Read through the link I provided. If this does not correct your problem please post back and let me know before you rate this solution. This way I can try to assist you further. I hope this corrects your problem.

SOURCE: Kenmore series 70 washer will only fill with water.

I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.

Fills with water and then nothing kenmore washer model 23822100 type 111


Top load machines will fill with water while the lid is open. Your problem starts when you close your lid. NOTHING happens. I believe this to be your LID SWITCH . Replace or have replaced and you should be OK. GOOD LUCK.

Cold and hot water are mixed up.


I just purchased the same model and have the same problem. Call Sears and have a repairmen sent while still under warranty. The water temperature sensors needed to be replaced in my washer.

Washer does not fill


Firstly, check to see that your water temperature is selected properly. Next, check to confirm water supply to the washer is adequate, both HOT and COLD. If confirmed, try replacing the fill valve.
