Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
All of my lines are clear but I am not getting water to the machine,
You will need to make a 110v power cord with spades to fit the valve.

Yes, it will fail soon. it is beat to go ahead a order a new inlet valve assembly asap. the pressure sensors that are housed in the valve assembly are failing.

1) Unplug the washer. turn off the water. remove the fill hoses.
2) remove the 2 Phillips screws in the front on either side that retain the console. On some machines, these are hidden under console end caps that must be pried off. On newer models, they’re on the back of the console and you only need to back them out about halfway. On most of the latest models there are no screws, rather there are two clips that you release by inserting a putty knife under the console from the front. apply slight force forward on clips and they'll release as you pull up on consoile lightly.
3) lift the console forward to unhook it from the cabinet top, then up and away from you. it will hang back out of the way if the washer’s away from the wall far enough. unplug the lid switch plug, it'll be the one with 3 wires, usually white, brown and green. then use a large screwdriver to pry up the 2 large clips that hold the cabinet to the washer back panel.
open the tub lid, grab the cabinet and gently pull forward and it’ll unhook from the retainers on the base. Lift the cabinet off and set it aside, you'll need lot's of room, but it is easy to work on.
4) if you now look to the right of the tub at the back wall while facing the unit you'll have access to the valve.
*NOTE, To put the cabinet back on, open the cabinet lid again, now looking down through the lid opening, hook the cabinet front under the washer frame while keeping the cabinet tilted slightly towards you.
Rest your foot at the cabinet base to hold it in place, as you tip it back down onto the base. make sure the 2 notches at the back on the bottom(frame) line up with the notched holes in the cabinet bottom.
Snap the 2 big cabinet clips back into place, If one side’s gapped, it means one of the notched holes is mis aligned. remove the clip on that side, tilt toward you slightly, and push the side down into place. Then re-install the clip.
plug the lid switch in, re-attach the console. and Bob's your uncle.
you should be back in business.
hope that helps,

you will need to take the top off, look at back of the machine toward the top and you should have 2 to 3 screws to remove. slide the top toward you .. Please Do All Steps With Power Disconected from the machine. :)
Make sure you have turned the hot and cold water off befor you take the hoses off.
Make sure you watch what wires you take off of the valve and put them back where you found them.
Remove valve and install new one.
Re install wires and lid

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for these washers.
The most likely culprits are the Water Level or Water Temperature switches.
The Service Manual has procedures for testing each of them.
See the following for how to gain access to the console.
