Question and Answers

Q:

Why does my Kenmore washer model 11028812790 keep filling and not stop to agitate?

A:

Your symptoms point to a failure in the water level pressure switch (Key 2 in the first image) or a leak in the pressure switch hose (Key 17 in the second image) that runs from the pressure switch to the bottom of the washer tub.

I recommend unplugging the washer and opening the console to access the pressure switch. To open the console, follow these steps:

  1. Unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power.
  2. Remove the plastic end cap on each side of the console.
  3. Remove the screw on each side of the console that secures it to the top panel of the washer.
  4. Pull the console forward and then up to hinge it back to the service position. It will hang across the back panel of the washer.
Check the pressure switch hose to make sure it is properly secured on the pressure switch. A disconnected or leaking hose could cause this problem.

The pressure switch could be stuck in the empty position. Sometimes, tapping on the pressure switch with the handle of a screwdriver will free up the stuck contact. Try tapping the pressure switch and then reassemble the washer and test it. This may fix your problem. If not, then you will need to replace the pressure switch unless you have a bad pressure switch hose. I recommend replacing the pressure switch first. If you still have a problem after replacing the pressure switch, then you would need to replace the hose. The part number for the pressure switch is 3366845. You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website www.searspartsdirect.com .

Q:

What are the 3 pins on the Machine Base for?

A:

Thank you for your question.

Having parts in your washer that you do not know what they are for can be a concern.

  • Neither.

  • These are the shipping pins that fall into these little cups for storage.

  • When the washer is installed they are released from holding the suspension during the installation and are stored there so you do not think something is falling off you machine.

I hope this will reassure you that this is normal.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

need ages of washer by model #s, kenmore,not found on K site or links,as: 110288002890, 11082870820,11082983120,or 11028812790

A:

The first model number appears to have an extra zero in the model number. Model 110.28802890 was likely produced around 1998. The next two models (110.82870820 and 110.82983120) we likely manufactured before 1987 but I don't have a specific year. The last one (110.28812790) was likely produced around 1997. The serial number of the washer provides the exact production date. The chart below shows the serial number format for these types of washers. The second letter (first letter before the first numerical digit) will have the year that the washer was manufactured. This should help you determine the age of the washers.
