Greetings.. This kenmore is less than two years old. We never really thought it worked right from the start, (clothes at times wet after spin) The latest issue is the instant agitation while washer begins it's fill at a start of a wash. Though it will go through the wash cycle - after final spin, for about 10 seconds, water is dumped on the spun clothes. So they are left wet after the cycle ends. I then use the spin cycle on the "Hand wash" mode to fully spin the water out of the clothes. It is only in this cycle that water isn't dumped on the clothes.

After enough research, it looks to be the auto load sensing switch

With a superceeded part number of W10292584, my guess is this is a modification of a problematic device.

I am going to give that a try, but your sage thoughts on this is appreciated. I am aware also of the hose that goes back to the control circutry. A bit of explanation on how that works, is also helpful.

ok the hose is there because the water level switch is built into the main board, that is what tells the machine that is is at the desired water level, and to start washing. yes the redesign on the load sensing switch is because it is a problimatic part.

Insert smart ass remark here____

you can futher test by removing the 2 connectors from the load sensing switch
and turn the machine on in the fill or wash cycle....no agitation = bad load sensing switch.

If the machine still immediately agitates with the wires disconnected from the load sensing
switch the you have a bad timer....also another problematic part with this washer.

If your feeling really lucky..I've had 2 cases when both parts are bad.....

I picked up the new autoload sensing switch.. turns out that the part number W10292584 is not correct for this model. It is a smaller unit with a two position switch. The one needed is W10248240, which is the larger unit as part of the water temperature switch. Oddly, after reinstalling the switch, the washer ran through it's cycles normally. I will take this one back in the hopes I can exchange for the correct item. I did all the internet searches to confirm this part number, using the model number as the search term.. Should have actually taken it out in the first place to look at it.

Nice!. That's the one. I will do that. Thank you. Incidently, the washer ran through two loads on the old part, so this clearly is an intermittant, or I wonder about some pressure that might have built up in the hose..I hadn't checked it on the lower end of the washer.

no harm in checking the hose...blow through it hard. You still need to get the new switch.

How to test the auto load sensing switch in a Whirlpool/Kenmore 800 top loading washer

If you have the misfortune of owning one of these machines that takes away your ability to control water level (because supposedly it figures it out for you) then you need to know that you're not in Kansas...
