Water won't stop filling basin on Kenmore Model 110 (80 series) washer

Help!

ANSWERS:

"Hi @steves2020,

If your Kenmore 110 Series Washing Machine is not draining after a wash cycle, see the Kenmore 110 Series Washing Machine Won’t Drain problem page for possible causes and solutions.

What is the full model number of the washer?

You could prove which water inlet valve may have been the problem by connecting both the hot and cold hoses to the machine and then turning the water off on one at a time to see if the water stopped leaking into tub.

If it did stop when one of the supply taps was closed then at least you know which one to look at and maybe to change.

If you go to partselect.com and search for the full model number then usually in there when you get the parts for that machine and find the water inlet valve part and click on it there is sometimes a video that shows how to install it which should help you.

Another thing to check if the valve is faulty is if the mesh filters located in the end of the supply hoses that connect to the machine are OK and not damaged or broken. If they are, it allows any grit that may be in the water supply (it happens) to enter the machine and to possibly get lodged in the valve seat preventing it from fully closing. Unfortunately water inlet valves cannot be repaired, they have to be replaced."
