110.29822800 Load Sensor Switch
According to what I have read on your questions and answers, I think my load sensor switch is bad. (Machine will not fill). I'm not for sure yet because I haven't put my meter on it. I spoke with a local tech. Who was glad to offer some free advice. He said that from his experience most likely the timer switch or the fill valve might be bad. Is this also a possibility? Is the load sensor switch the most common problem? I'm also curious as to why after having this Kenmore for only 2 years, why anything would be wrong with it? They have always been real "Die Hards". Can you please provide me with the info I need to trouble shoot the load sensor switch, fill valve and timer switch? And how to remove the knob and timer switch? I also understand there is no repair manual available for this model. Can you foresee if and when one might be available? Your input will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, James

you will be replacing the load sensor every 2 or 3 years. I am on my 3rd and expect many more purchases of replacements. Odd for Kenmore to have this problem ? Yes
