    ...it cut off the rest of my response but here's the rest: ...appropriate height is reached in the tub, the cycle will start washing. There is a buzzing sound that comes on when I first engage the washer to start filling up with water and sometimes out of nowhere it will begin dispensing water, but only for a couple of minutes. The rinse cycle has the same results to where I have to manually add water to the tub in order for it to start that part of the cycle. Any ideas as to what could be causing this?

You will need to replace the "water inlet valve". Se if you can get a part number off the valve. I will need that number or the complete model number to point you to the correct part.

    One has the part number 64163 and the other has the number 64164 on it. I would assume I'd have to replace both considering neither the hot or the cold is working at the moment.

    Here is the valve that comes up for that part number but I don't think it is correct. Take a look at it.http://bit.ly/WXc7yj

    Yeah, it's the substitution that Sears is showing as well.

SOURCE: kenmore washing machine 80 series

check for kinks in the pipe or restrictions to the flow in the pipes before it gets to the washer, if all is ok then check the filter on the outside of the water connector on the machine for dirt

if you confirm all is clear and the flow of water is not the problem before the machine, replace the cold water solenoid

Either the cylenoid to let the water in is bad.
Or the hose from the dispenser to the drum is clogged.
Most common with powder detergents.
Some really hot water poured into the dispenser may
solve the problem.

Washing Machine Keeps Filling with Water through Detergent dispen


This machine has a water valve that works on vaccuum from the tub. You will see a small clear hose that runs from the side of the tub up to this valve. This valve is adjustable to change the water level in the tub to desired setting on some machines, but if it goes bad, it will not shut off, thus overflowing the tub. Find this valve and replace it if adjustment does not work.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Strange smell coming out of Maytag Neptune MAH8700AWW


This is joyce
I am assuming that the smell is mold that is what happens in these units, the door gets closed and they capture the moisture inside and it molds around the door and in the dispenser, you have to run about 1 cup of bleach a month in them to keep them clean and in the dispenser you have to spray them with pure bleach with a spray bottle and take tooth brush and scrub the top to remove mold or it will take over. make sure their are no clothes in waher whenn you run this cycle.
this should solve this problem,
please let me know if this works, it did on mine
thanks

Kenmore Series 70 has musty smell and sounds like water inside


The water will always be in there. It is in between the basket and the drum. That is normal. However if you want to get rid of the musty smell there is a good tip that I have. You can find this on my profile too. Just take about a cup of white vinegar and put it in the drum and wash on hot heavy load. This will clean the tub and all hoses as well. You can do this every few months or even every month if you do a lot of laundry. Put some vinegar into the bleach dispenser too and the fabric softener area as well. This way you will clean everything. It is much cheaper then going out and buying that expensive cleaner made for washing machines. Let me know if you have any other questions and if this was helpful. Good luck and have a great weekend.

Detergent not being washed out of dispenser


This suggestion is not too good. If your dispenser opens at the initial stages of the cycle, just a little - pour some water into the dispenser to wash down the detergent. (For my machine i can pull out the dispenser anytime during the wash, except when water comes into the dispenser, but even then i think the water enters the tub.) For this you dont have to hang around the machine for long for it is in the initial stages of the cycle. Later you hv to check the flow of water into the dispenser. Hv no idea how to do it; but i gave you a quick solution.
