Yes your inlet water valve is the problem. you have to remove the outer cabinet first by taking the control panel loose and "flipping it back, then remove the 2 hold down clips, kindof a wierd "s" shaped thing in each upper corner, then the cabinet will "hinge" forward allowing you to get into where the valve is at. the rest should be easy, a single mounting screw and the 2 hoses, make sure to put the wiring plugs back on in the correct place on the new valve.

Kenmore washer model #110.28882790 is very slow to fill with water. We've checked and cleaned the hose filters. Is there some kind of water sensor? Or hidden filters?

Remove the water line from the INLET valve and start the machine , if there is no proper flow of water then the inlet vavle is not working to open , the filter on the vavle is clogged or the inlet filter is blocked. Also check the voltage on the inlet valve to make sure that the controller unit is outputting correct voltage.
If not replace filter , valve to ensure that the drum get best flow for filling.

My Whirlpool washer won't go into the rinse cycle. The water inlet screens are clean and I replaced the timer but obviously wasn't the fix as I still have the problem.

Hi, When the water is suppose to be filling, Can you hear the inlet valve humming? You might need to remove the inlet vavle and check voltage to it. When the water is to be filling, you should get 120V to the valve. Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

When the washer is off, even if the door is left open, the tub will fill with water and leak onto the floor.

sounds as if you have a bad inlet water vavle, it doenst complety shut off after use, and waer will trickle in( adding up to quite a bit in a day) youll need to replace the water inlet valve(directly behind themachine where the hoses hook into). in the meantime turn off water inbetween uses
