Kenmore washer water not filling


there is a inline mesh filter at the tap end of the hose but it is more that likely that the tap washer need replacing
it is possible that the inlet solenoid valve is not operating properly
if you have separate hot and cold water hoses and taps then either tap should produce a full flow when set if no taps get a full slow when selected , indicates a problem power board

I have a Kenmore dishwasher, not sure of the model or year (less than 10 years old) but water constantly flows into the dishwasher. So much so that it leaked all over the floor because the bottom filled up...


Hello.
If it's filling all the time when dishwasher is not even running? The water inlet valve that the house water supply connects to at the dishwasher,is sticking open and needs to be replaced..what you can do now to stop it from constantlu filling is turn off water supply to the d/w from under the kitchen sink.

Typically the model number is on a label on the egde of the door inside or on the rim of the tub..it would be needed to order a water valve

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
