May I get your units Model number to better assist you? If you open the door in will be on the face frame of the unit.
*******Can you give me the model number like this 123 . 123456With out the (.) space the server thinks it is your personal info and blocks it with all XXX`s
ok rather hard for me to assist you if I do not know what model you have .
Several differant manufactures make appliances for Kenmore /Sears
Is this a front loading washer ,or a top loading washer?
THe only thing that is running the entire time it washes is the timer or control depending what model it is .
If it was the water valve it would only be during the fill cycle .
If it was the pump or the motor it would only be during agitate ,drain and spin ,not during fill .
It would be the timer /or control .
