I have a Sears Kenmore series 80 model 110.28822790 which over fills.  From reading general washing machine repair manuals out of the library it sounds like an overfill switch problem.  Well I've tried every way I can think of to remove the cabinet to get at the workings and have had no luck.  Anyone replaced an overfill switch before?  If so any help would be great.  Even how to get the cabinet off would be great.  Thanks.

Hi Mr Dave; First unplug your machine from the outlet.
It looks like on your model there would be two end caps. One on the left and one on the right of the comsole. Snap those off. Under each one you will see a phillips head screw. Remove those two screws. They are the ones that are a bit of an angle, they are in the front pointing down. Now tilt the console back on its own hinges. And there is access to the rear of all the controls. To remove the water level switch (aka: presure switch) you will see three wires and a clear plastic tube that attaches to switch. Remove those. Mkae a note which wire goes back where if they are single wires. Pull the knob off the front of the console. In the rear remove the 1'4 inch head screws that hold the switch in place.
Let me know.
Unless specifically asked otherwise, remember to test with the unit unplugged, or breaker off.

GLC,

  Thanks!  I couldn't figure out how to get into the control panel and you where right on the money.  In fact once I rotated the control panel up I saw the clear tube had come off of the switch.  I pushed it back on and reconnected the water and drain hoses and tried it out.  It works like a charm!!!  Thanks!

Some advise for you, reopen that consule and cut about 1" off the pressure tube so as you get a good tight fit that won't fall off again.
