Thanks for contacting manage my life about your washer model 110.26844691; sorry you are experiencing a problem, I will be glad to assist you with this issue. Based on the description you have provided I would start by testing the pressure switch or water level switch. When the washer fills the pressure switch or water level switch switches power from the fill valves to the motor. If the water is stopping at correct level but not agitation action is taking place the switch may be bad.  I have attached instruction below on testing the switch. _Always disconnect power supply before servicing the appliance and when testing live voltage be sure to wear proper safety equipment (gloves and eye protection) also be aware of sharp metals on product_

I hope this helps, if you need additional help reply with more details and I will be happy to respond.

Q:

Why is my Kenmore washer overfilling?

A:

You did not indicate if the water will shut off when you push the timer in or not. If it the water does not shut off by pushing the timer knob in the failure is the water inlet valve. If the water shuts off when you push the timer knob in the failure is likely the pressure switch or the air hose pulled off the pressure switch.

The water level is controlled by the water level pressure switch (key#2). There is an air hose connecting the water level pressure switch to the air dome. The air dome is located on the outside of the outer tub. The air dome is traps air as the water level rises which causes air pressure to be carried up through the air hose to the water level pressure switch. If the air dome has a blockage or if the air hose has a pin hole it will cause the water to overfill.

To access the water level pressure switch will require placing the console in the service position. (See images below)

To place the console in the service position:

  • First, disconnect the power cord from the power source.

  • The console (key#26) will need to be placed in the service position by removing two (2) hidden screws, one (1) screw located at the bottom of the left hand end cap (key#7) and one (1) screw located at the bottom of the right hand end cap (key#10).

  • In order to access the two (2) hidden screws under the left hand end cap trim (key#8) and under the right hand end cap trim (key#15) the two (2) end cap trim pieces will need to be removed.

  • To remove the trim (key#8&15), place you finger behind the trim at the very top and bend it up enough to clear the console and then hinge it towards the front and off.

  • Remove the hidden screw under each end cap trim. Slide the console forwards about 1/4 inch and the raise it upwards and hinge it over the rear panel.

  • You now have access to the water level pressure switch.

Reverse the procedure to re-assemble the washer.

Hello Lisa. Your front load washer probably has a bad water level pressure sensor or a leak in the air line between the bottom of the washer tub and the pressure switch.
