I am writing about my kenmore 80 series washer, model # 110.29852991. A few days ago it would not stop filling with water, so I replaced the water level control switch. Now I tried to wash my first load of clothes and NO WATER. So thinking it was just stuck in between cycles because of my trying to fill it several times a few days ago to see if the water level switch was working (which it worked perfectly a few days ago~~~But I never tried to actually wash a load!), so I filled it by hand with water and when it got to the rinse cycle again NO WATER!!!!!

I am thinking water inlet valve? Any other thoughts anyone??

By the way it does everything else~~it spins, agitates, it just thinks it has water when there is none!

When it would'nt stop filling with water you didn't turn the water off and perhaps forget to turn it back on?

I'm thinking you mis-wired the pressure switch, easy to do.

I am a little confused (which is not hard to do for me,) but there was only one way to wire the switch, so how could I have miswired it? Also I tested the small and medium size water level out by running water and getting it to agitate right after I put the switch on a few days ago, but only today did I try to run a load, and there is no water unlike a couple of days ago when there was water after I had put the switch on.

By the way this washer is the pits!!! I have replaced the lid switch, motor coupler, and the water level switch all in the last 2 yrs, and it is only 5 years old to begin with!

Yours must have the plug on it that only lets you connect ikt one way.

Ok, make sure the air hose is one the pressure switch tightly. Also, when you changed the switch and put the air hose on the new switch, was there any water in the tub?
