Take the fill hoses off the machine and clean out the filter inside, right where the hose attached to the machine. Also, check to make sure there are no filter washers in either end of the supply hoses. Sounds like you only have to check the cold water side in this case.

SOURCE: just a trickle of water during rinse cycle

You write that the water flows fine during the wash cycle; if you mean while the machine is washing, then it is the pump  making the water flow. You need to watch the water flow while filling for any cycle since it could be slow filling and not running.
Since the same valve(s) control the water intake during washing and rinsing, what you describe doesn't make sense. I suggest your remove both ends of both hoses and inspect them and the mating connectors on the machine for clogged screens.
If these are clear of any sediment, then the flow control valve is failing. This is located on the rear of the machine and the screw connections for your hoses are part of the valve body. This assembly is pretty easy to remove and replace, is a common and not very expensive failure.
If you are in the US, check to see if you have a Johnstone Supply in your area. They sell mostly wholesale to tradesmen but have never turned a private sale away and are far less expensive than dealers with pricing ranging from 30-50% of dealer price.

SOURCE: Hot Water runs in fine but the cold only trickles into Washer,

The problem is your cold water screen filter is cluged up.
To fix it:
1. Shut off cold water to the washer.
2. Take off cold water fill hose from machine side and faucet side.
3. Inspect the screen filters on the hose and inside water valve.
4. If necessary to clean them remove from hose and valve with pick or small screwdriver.
5. You can clean them with old toothbrush under water stream.

SOURCE: water barely trickles out for rinse cycle

Hello,

It sounds like you have some buildup in the cold water valve screen. Where the hose connects to the washer there should be a screen inside the valve. Remove the cold water hose from the washer and clear any debri on the valve screen.

If this doesn't fix the slow cold water flow then you will have to replace the whole water valve assembly. The water valve is the piece that the hoses connect too and supply water to the washer.

If you have anymore questions about this please ask. I will be more than happy to help you out.

Thanks

SOURCE: Kenmore washer. At rinse cycle only, water fills very slowly.

For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

My washer will fill with water during the wash cycle just fine, but during the rinse cycle the water just trickles in. The water lines seem to be fine. What else could be causing my problem?


usually the wash is a mix of hot and cold and the rinse is just cold, that said, it is most likely a problem with the cold water supply. check to make sure the cold water valve is all the way open and the hose isn't kinked. If those are ok turn the water supply off and remove the supply lines on the machine side, you will see a screen inside the washer that may be clogged with sediment. If so, just clean it out and put it back together. You may also want to run a wash cycle on cold only to see if it fills slowly for the wash cycle. If it does fill slowly on cold you have low pressure on the cold side.

Rinse cycle water flows out to a trickle- regular wash cycle flows normal- water valve?


Flows out where , drain or into machine ? If into machine , Most washers have a cold rinse into machine . If your using hot fill and you get a trickle , then problem is a clogged screen at the valve or a bad water valve .

Won't complete cycle, stops at rinse. and can't get hot water.


Are you on well water? turn off the cold water to the washer and clean the screen filter out. do not leave filter out.
the machine probably has a cold only final rinse so it won't work properly.

70 series Kenmore washer


POWERUP, YOUR WASHER COULD BE THE LID SWITCH OR THE COLD WATER VALVE. AT THE END OF THE WASH CYCLE, THE MOTOR WILL SPIN OUT THE WATER, BUT ONLY IF THE LID SWITCH IS ACTUATED. IF THE SWITCH IS BAD, IT WILL NOT SPIN OUT THE WATER AND THE TIMER WILL NOT ADVANCE FROM THAT POINT.
IF THE WASHER SPINS, THE NEXT STEP IS TO FILL WITH WATER FOR THE RINSE CYCLE. MOST WASHERS USE COLD WATER FOR RINSES. IF THE COLD WATER VALVE IS RESTRICTED OR FAULTY, THE WASHER WON'T FILL. IF THE WASHER WON'T FILL, THE WATER LEVEL SWITCH WON'T ACTIVATE AND THE TIMER WON'T ADVANCE TO THE NEXT STEP.
