:yikes: DO NOT REMOVE THE REAR PANEL!!!!!! Post a model number (should be 110. followed by 8 digits) so we can see what you actually have, the process varies depending on which vintage of Kenmore you have.

Mastah,

 

I am but a grasshoppah, learning the ways of Applinatology. 

During the fill cycle the tub over flows into the washer drip pan/tray.  (the washer is on the third floor).  Troubleshooting has resulted in buying a new water mixing vlave.  Is this the right course?

Should I have considered:

1   Water vlave
2   Water level switch
3   Rubber hose going to water level switch

2 and 3 are your first ports of call. The hose can get pinched, I have even seen some of these where the hose runs through a little retainer on the side of the tub - the hose rubs on this and eventually wears through.

Changed out the water mixing valve cause I had it. 

Checked out the pressure tube.  Looked ok. 

Ran one test cycle-checked good.

If problem persists I'll change the tube and water switch.

Thanks.  Good info.  Good times!
