It's not going to be a fuse. The person that has the same problem is on the right track. There are two solenoids on the water inlets, one for hot and one for cold. Check and see if it works on one but not the other. Then take off the hose to the one or one's that aren't working and try cleaning the screens first. There are small little screens inside of the inlets and if you have hard water or anything it will build up on those screen making it so the solenoids don't turn on the water. A simple cleaning of the screens may fix it. If not you may need a new inlet solenoid. Those can be picked up at your local appliance repair shop. Just give them the make and model of your washer. I hope this helps and if you have any other questions let me know. Good luck.

Is there a fuse for the 70 series washers? Mine wont spin the water out...

No user-servicable fuse that I'm aware of -- I sell Kenmore appliances. If it won't spin out water, it's probably a bad pump. Does the motor run? Can you manually advance the timer? If so, you may have a bad timer.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Some problems that can occur with your top-loading washing machine are:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
It won't drain
It doesn't spin
It doesn't agitate
It's noisy
It leaks
It's off balance
There's no hot water
There's no cold water
It's slow to fill
There's no water at all
The clothes are wet after spinning
The cycle doesn't advance
There's no delicate or regular spin or agitate
It's overfilling
It's underfilling
The water temperature is incorrect

Hope this may help;

Kenmore 70 series won't turn on

Sounds like the fuse may be gone. If your front panel comes off it may be in there.
