Kenmore 90 Searis
« on: September 24, 2014, 02:42:03 PM »

I have a Kenmore 90 Series Model 110.26912690. I bought it at a auction about 6 months ago and the only problem that it had was that once it reached the rinse cycle it would just sit their and rinse and not advance to spin. I would manually move it to spin and it would finish the load. That wasn't a big issue but something else has seemed to go wrong. Last night I put a full load in and set to normal cycle. I came back about 45 min. later and the washer was still trying to fill the tank. I have an open drain and could see that the water was just going right through the tank and down the drain. It actually emptied my hot water heater and the knob was still at the beginning of the cycle. So does anybody have any thoughts how what to look at on fixing this.

Thanks

Shawn

  It's siphoning, probably because the drain hose is too low or too far down into the drain pipe or the connection between drain hose and drain pipe is sealed. There must be an air break there.

I basically have it lying on the ground and the end siting in the drain. Their is a box in the floor that leads to a drain. So if I understand I need to have the drain hose up high like in a normal house. Also the line is no sealed.

Thanks for the quick reply

must have hose lifted roughly to the top of tub. not really siphoning, just letting out any water that enters ???

  Yes, the drain hose should come up to around 39" before going back down to your floor drain but you must install a siphon break at the top or it's going to siphon the water out of the washer.
