SOURCE: Have model 88675 with slow hot water fill

I once had this problem. The solution was to remove the hot water hose connection to the washer and look at the filter/screen inserted into the end of the hose connection on the washer machine. This screen protects the washer components from foreign particles entering. You may find a badly-clogged screen, so clean it. I have seen a cold water screen clean, while the hot water screen was clogged...something to do with hot water and minerals or iron in water.

Yes patrick you can try removing the cold hose from the washer, look inside the valve for a metal screen. If it has sediment blocking it remove screen, clean it and reinstall. If still no water replace inlet valve.

SOURCE: Hot water is filling up washer very slow

There is a screen in the valve where the hose hooks on. It could be getting plugged up. turn off the water and pull off the hose to see if it's full of particles. I can sometimes clean it out by putting a bucket under the water inlet and spaying a little water from the hose into the opening. If not you may need a new valve.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Top Loader leaks

It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time

During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. 


Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. 



During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 


All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. 


Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. 


Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

SOURCE: kenmore 70 series want fill with cold water

You may have gotten some sediment in the water inlet valve which is clogging or restricting the cold water solenoid. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, this is common problem. The valve has electric solenoids controlling the water flow and sediment screens. One for hot, and one for cold. If you turn off the water supply and remove the hoses from the back of the washer, you can see the sediment screens on the valve. You try cleaning them while the valve is installed to see if this will correct some of your flow problem. Also, check the fill hoses. Some hoses have restrictor screens in them which can also become clogged.

If that doesn't work, you may also attempt to clean the valve by removing it and placing it in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and water. Allow it to soak for about a 30 minutes. Mix a solution in a container and submerge the valve portion only, leaving the electrical contacts dry. After 30 minutes flush with warm water. Sometimes this works, sometimes the valve needs replaced. You may want to replace the valve altogether if you're going to go the route of removing the it. This will eliminate the guess work and save yourself from having to repeat these steps twice. The following link explains how:

No hot water coming into the washer.


This problem is commonly attributed to a defective hot water solenoid on the water inlet valve (also known as a "mixing valve"). This is a fairly simple repair that can easily be accomplished without the assistance of a repairman. Depending upon whether the washer is a TOP LOADER or a FRONT LOADER, the replacement procedures differ slightly. The following link explains how to replace the valve on a TOP LOADER:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575881-replacing_water_inlet_valve_on_whirlpool



To replace the water inlet valve on a FRONT LOADER, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.

2. Turn off the water source and disconnect the fill hoses from the back of the washer.

3. With the top panel removed, disconnect the dispenser hose(s) and electrical connections to the valve.

4. Remove any mounting screws holding the valve in place and reinstall with a replacement valve.


Replacement parts can be purchased on line at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list also include helpful exploded view diagrams of your washer to help with locating and properly identifying the parts you need.

If you have questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

My Kenmore front loader sometimes fills with warm water on cold setting.


Most washer today use automatic temp. control fill valves. If water is too cold the control might mix in some hot to bring up to a preset temp. The same is true when control set for hot. For energy savings cold water will be mixed in to maintain a semi hot temp. Check with manufacture just to be sure.

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.
