Then you will need to shut off the water and disconnect the water inlet line and check the filter screen for the water in , if that has rust deposit build up then this will cause problems like that , but if this doesn't seem to help then there is most likely something wrong with the way the water is let in , and it will need to be looked at to find out what is not working correctly or what is stopping the water from comming in
please give a fixya rating as everthing but a fixya will just hurt our rating which then makes us just not to want to help anymore, sorry but that is fixya doing this scoring ,but i will be happy to assist you if you further need it , thanks

    ok , thank you! ,and if that don't do it then the solenoid that holds the water valve open durring the fill cycle is probably failing and will need to be replaced, so further damage is not caused by the strain of the circuit

    if you still need help , i'll be back and answer any other question that you might have

    again thanks!

My Kenmore Elite Oasis He Washer model #110.2706 will not fill with water. I have checked for blockage in the water lines and they are clean and clear. The washer is only two years old. It will hum like it...


Your fill valve needs replacing. Not too expensive to change. This is all based on the fact that you have checked both feeds to the washer hook up and that the shut off lever is fully open.

Kenmore Elite washer will not stop filling


Dirt in your solenoids may be a problem. But other than that it could be bad solenoids in general. It could also very well be that the unit that senses the water level has a part broken. On the inside there is a tube that connects to the tub. When you add water it increases the pressure in the tube and signals the shutoff. Sometimes the connections on this tube go bad.. or the tube itself gets a hole.

Easy way to tell. Start the unit with the on/off switch. Wait a few seconds then turn it off again. If the water flow doesn't stop you're most likely looking at a solenoid problem. If the water flow stops when you turn the switch off then you're most likely looking at a problem with the water level sensor.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!
