There are filter screens where the supply hoses connect to the washer. On some brands there is a screen where the hose connects to the water valve at the wall. The screen is probably full of sediment.

SOURCE: kenmore 70 series want fill with cold water

You may have gotten some sediment in the water inlet valve which is clogging or restricting the cold water solenoid. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, this is common problem. The valve has electric solenoids controlling the water flow and sediment screens. One for hot, and one for cold. If you turn off the water supply and remove the hoses from the back of the washer, you can see the sediment screens on the valve. You try cleaning them while the valve is installed to see if this will correct some of your flow problem. Also, check the fill hoses. Some hoses have restrictor screens in them which can also become clogged.

If that doesn't work, you may also attempt to clean the valve by removing it and placing it in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and water. Allow it to soak for about a 30 minutes. Mix a solution in a container and submerge the valve portion only, leaving the electrical contacts dry. After 30 minutes flush with warm water. Sometimes this works, sometimes the valve needs replaced. You may want to replace the valve altogether if you're going to go the route of removing the it. This will eliminate the guess work and save yourself from having to repeat these steps twice. The following link explains how:

The water fills very slowly on rinse


You probably have a cold inlet valve with restricted flow, either because the filter on the inlet valve is clogged or because the cold valve is failing......If you wash on "warm" you have both hot and cold water mixed. On rinse there is probably only cold water used....Check water flow for HOT and COLD settings and you'll probably see the difference...Good luck...Nomess

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..

Cold water trickles, hot water fills fast as normal


where your water lines connect there is a sc reen inside and if it is clogged with rust lime and or mineral deposit. it needs cleaned out. you can pull it out with a ice pick or something pointy. Check your screen first and if that doesn't fix ya then yes replace the unit.

Kenmore 70 series washer won't fill during rinse cycle


It appears your timer/main controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

The cold water does not run it trickles, hot water runs very fast


If both solenoid coils check the same, you probably have a clogged supply hose. Check that the filter screens inside the hose (if present) and the fill valve inlet are clear of mineral buildup. Try switching the hot and cold supply lines to see if the trouble moves from cold to hot. If the cold still only trickles in, replace the fill valve.

The most likely cause for water fill temperature problems is the solenoid has burned out, usually cold first, it gets used more. Not a repairable item , easy to replace
