Washer will not fill with water

We have a Kenmore 80 Series washer that we've had for about 9 years now. I have never had any problems with it until now. It will spin, wash and go through all of the steps, but with one problem, it will not fill with water. I get no water at all. Can't get through to Kenmore. Any Ideas? Thanks!

    Washer spins, solenoid screens are clean, lid switch works, no water or even a humming noise from the pump trying to work.

Stick, first check to see if the inlet valve screens are clogged with sand or debris. If this is clear you will have to do a voltage check at the valve to see if it's getting 120V when calling for water. If you are getting voltage there and no water, replace the valve (3979347). If you are not getting voltage there it's probably a timer issue. back.

How do I check and replace the water level sensor on my Kenmore 80 Series Hvy Dty Washer?

Try as per your 80 series. There are various downloads there that may help access the water level sensor which is most likely the problem.

Kenmore 80 series washer will not fill. replaced

You will have to have an electrical test done. If it's not filling, that means there's no current getting to the fill valve. Have a qualified technician do an electrical test. But also, have him test the timer, too!

Kenmore 80 Series will not fill up with water

if your washer will agitate when set to fill but not fill, then your pressure switch is bad.
also you may want to check and see if you are getting both hot and cold to your washer.

Kenmore 80 Series - water wont fill to full load

remove edge decore trims from left and right side front of control panel8b608f8.jpg
remove phillips screws from bottom corners of contol panel
remove knob from water level selector
raise control panel ~1 inch then flip over backwords on pivots
depress lock tab on right/underside of water level control body where it touches metal mount plate
rotate water level control body 45deg anti clockwise
pull body off
top side of body next to knob shaft is 1/8 hex head bolt
turn clockwise to rais water level
anticlockwise to lower water level
machine can be operated with this part not fitted so can check level. fill, adjust screw, fill will start again, adjust screw, until water level is correct
reinstall in reverse order
Incidentally, the cause is a VERY small wire spring inside the control body that is not really up to the task, and stretches over years.
Its a common occurrence, and I make this repair, on callouts, no parts required, couple times a month you may have to flip the switch to reset to get the water to restart filling

Broken Washer

it could be the direct drive coupling that connects the motor to the transmission. fill it up with water and see if it will agitate, if it will NOT agitate then it is a good chance that this is the problem. 0404472.jpg

worse case scenario is the transmission is bad, but this is unlikely.
