Water is collects in drum after a few hours after cycle is complete

Kenmore Washer Model #110-44832-201
Water is collecting inside the drum after sitting overnight. The washer drains completely after the end of wash cycle, but after a few hours, about 3/4" of water will be standing toward the back of the drum. Is there some type of check valve on the water inlet that may be leaking?

Water collecting in wash drum when not operating


You are correct. One of the solenoids on the water valve is not shutting completely and will need to be replaced before it sticks wide open and cause a flood. Here is the part to order. To replace the valve, remove the screws on the top panel, slide it back and lift it off. There you will have access to the valve replacement.

Washing machine is not completing spin cycle at high speeds. Only goes slow speed tumble for a few times and then stops.


Below is for Whirlpool/Kenmore, u might find it helpful. Some machines have a small trap door on left front bottom, coin trap.

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too, comes after the filter.

On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.

Pressure switch is likely clogged/full of sediment.

Change it.

Next run your washer with 2 cups of bleach, hot water. After it starts agitating stop the washer & let it remain for 2 hours. Then continue the wash.

Kenmore 110 Top Load Washer-cold water fills extremely slowly


No it is probably the screen that is either in the end of the hose that attaches to the machine, and/or the screen is placed so that the cone is toward the machine instead of pointing away from the machine.
If the cone is pointing towards the machine any debris in the lines would collect and eventually fill the screen cone and slow or shut off water flow.

Ty for being here. I have a kenmore stack washer


Inside the machine you have a valve called inlet.

The inlet water valve will collect the cold and hot water lines, and open alternatively one or the other during cycle.

To access the inlet valve you need to take apart the machine, and that is not an easy task.
If you DIY remember to unplug power, there is high voltage running inside your appliance.

Below the inlet valve for your model:

Water stays in drum after cycle is complete and odor


I think from what you have said, that you have a pump problem. The water pump on most washers collect all sorts of bits and pieces including small coins. You may be able to clean out the pump if it is not a sealed unit.
