Start checking the water supply connected to the machine, if water is regularly coming to the machine, the problem is either a faulty inlet valve, a defective membrane water level switch, or a faulty timer control (the first two are more likely).

Call a local technician and have the appliance fixed.

Put the temp select switch on HOT, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. If there is water flow switch to COLD, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount should be approximately equal or slightly more than flow on HOT. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. Move selector to WARM, start machine. Now there should be twice the flow of water than there was with HOT and COLD temps. I suspect it is the HOT side of inlet water valve that has failed because machines usually rinse with COLD water.

Low water level kenmore elite front loader i have cleaned the hose strainer,water pressure 55 psi can i adjust


Whats tthe model number on the washer? I wana check if that model has a "water flow meter". Does the washer fill then give you an error code about the water pressure? Is this the HEt front load washer? If so, open the top panel. 2 screws are located on the back upper corners. one on each side. slide the panel back and lift up. Now you will see the inside from the top view. Now if it does have a "water forw meter" it should be inline with the water inlet caomming in. Its looks like a plastic like tube that is in the middel in the inlet water coming in..i would check that out.

No cold rinse, only hot


Either the wires have come loose on the water valve or you have a defective water valve.Open the lid and look at the water valve. Are all wires connected?
If yes, replace the water valve.

Washing machine has low flow and stops in middle of cycle


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 where 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.

Water in my washing machine


it sounds like you have a leaking water valve, you will have to replace the mixing valve, For now turn the water off at the wall suppling water to the machine. When you want to use the washer turn on water, when its done with the cycle turn the water off.

Note: unplugging the machine will not stop the water from running
