Replace the valve, or if new, have them do it. You are sure it is the valve and not where the hot warter hose attaches? Confirm by hooking up hot water under preasure to see if that seals itself.

When my Kenmore machine is running on the wash cycle warm/warm no water is coming at all. I could run the machine only with cold water even on the cycle warm/cold.


Most likely the hot water hose is plugged up, or least likely, the hot/cold valve is broken or plugged up.
Find a large container, or better yet, hook up a garden hose that you might try the faucet where the hot water is hooked up and see if water will come out of it when the washer hose is not hooked up there.
If it will not, you have a plugged up hot water pipe or the water heater shut off valve is closed.
If you get good water pressure and hot water from the faucet, look at the filter screens that are inside the ends of the hot water hose and see if any are plugged up.
There may be several.
If not, perhaps the inlet water solenoid has failed. That plastic part is where the hoses attach to the washer itself.
God bless your efforts.

Leaking washer, increases when using cold, less when using hot. May be at drain?


Stop the washer and clean up the water. Confirm that the water is not leaking when the washer is off. The leak can occur before the electric valves either where the hose connects or from the electric solenoid valves just inside the washer. The situation is more likely true if the hoses are stressed by being bent to one side.

If dry then confirm if it is the hot or cold by running the machine with the cold service valve open and hot closed.

It sounds like the water inlet solenoid valve at the rear of the washer where the hose hooks up is leaking, more than likely the cold water valve.

I dont know what the piece is called but it goes on the back of my front load washer and it seperates the hot water from the cold water and its cracked


Are you referring to the water valve assembly? If so, you can purchase a new assembly. Check with a parts distributor. You will need the brand and model number.

Unplug the washer. Turn off the water supply (hot and cold) to the washer and disconnect the hoses at the washer (there is no need to disconnect the hoses at the wall). Make certain that you replace the hoses correctly on the new water valve with corresponding hot and cold hoses coming from the wall. Disconnect the wire harnesses to each temperature (hot and cold) on the water valve. The harnesses should be color-coded. Replace them correctly on the new valve. Turn the water supply back on and plug in the washer. Run a small water level while testing different temperatures (hot, cold and warm). Check for water leaks and proper temperature.

My Kenmore 110 92587210 Washer is slowly letting water in


The solenoid for the cold water valve has failed in the open position and needs to be replaced. The valve unit is for both hot and cold. It is the item that the water hoses are connected to.

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..

Hot water just trickles in both of my Kenmore top loader washers


Try reversing hot for cold hoses and see what happens. That will test your valves, hot water pressure, etc. As far as I know, the valve screens are right where the hoses hook up.
