Tip

Water stops flowing while washer is filling


The hot water on my washing machine abruptly stopped flowing within the first couple of seconds. After a bit of checking I found that the fill hoses behind the washer are of the sort that automatically stop the water flow if it exceeds a certain rate. They are several years old and apparently the valve on the hot water hose has started to malfunction -- it stops the water at a lower pressure than it should.<br /><br />Temporary workaround: If you absolutely MUST wash a few loads, you might be able to get it working by reversing the hose. Disconnect it from both the washer and the valve, then turn the hose around and connect it back again. The valve should not interfere with water flowing in the other direction.<br /><br />Permanent fix: Replace the fill hose as soon as possible to help prevent flooding accidents. These hoses can't prevent flooding in all situations, but as they say... better safe than soggy. (Sorry, couldn't resist!)<br /><br />Something else just occurred to me as I was writing this. Reversing the flow through the hose for a few cycles of the machine might actually help to unclog the flow-stopping valve. Before plunking down the cash to replace the hose, try reinstalling the hose in the correct direction and test to see if the water flows normally. I will try this and post a follow-up as soon as I can.

Kenmore series 90 bypassing water. doesn't fill instead water flows out the drain tube once it reaches a level just below small load.


raise the drain hose up till the arch is about level with the back control panel. Once you here the water stop draing restart your machine and it should return to normal operation

Myn washer always overflowes as it filling it wont


This is usually the pressure switch. Also you could check the water inlet valve if water is still flowing in the machine after it stops. There are free videos on testing these components at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html
You can also punch in your model # for diagrams

Kenmore 90 Series fills with water but would not agitate or spin


You have a problem with the motor coupling. Top-load washers use what's called a direct-drive system, meaning it does not use a belt but what's called a "motor coupling". I probably replace 5 a week because these little guys break because of 2 reasons that i've found.
1) The break mechanism is too dry and causing the basket to stop at a holt, which puts a lot of strain on the coupler.

2) They break because of over-loading. I don't think you're over-loading though because it was find for 5 straight years.

Good luck to you. The repair is kind of hard to do on your own for the first time, so I would call an authorized technician. It will run you anywhere between $90 to $120 at most.

Best of luck!

Kenmore 90 Series Washer : cold water fills at just a trickle:


your hot water goes through the water heater so contaminates settle in the heater. the cold does not, there is a screen inside the fill valve where the hose hooks to the valve on the machine. if this in not plugged then the fill valve will have to be replaced. because of the build up of contaminates..

Kenmore HE4T Washer Leak


there are 2 possible causes.
either
inlet valve leaking - turn water off and if water fill stops, it indicates valve leaking
valve being powered when machine off. this is very unlikely but to check, disconnect washer and see if problem stops
also, if drain is plumbed into a spigot on the sink trap, every time you empty the sink, some of the water will flow into the machine. to cure this, take the drain hose as high as possible under the sink in a swan neck

Just a trickle of water during rinse cycle


HI thanks for your question. the cold water valve either has a clogged screen or a faulty water valve. remove the cold water hose and clean out the screen, try again. could be all you have to do. if its acting the same. replace the water valve. thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks.
