Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Cold water flow is sporatic.

The cold water flow into the washer (Kenmore Ultra Fabric Care, Model 110, 92282100, Serial # CC1485298) is sporatic,; sometimes cutting toa trickle, other times full force. Is this something I can fix. The hot water flow is fine. Is it possible to just switch the hoses. I have no problem just washing with cold water. Thank you for any help.

For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside where you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

I have a kenmore ultra fabric care 80 series washing machine.. it will not stop filling up with water.. I have to turn off the water or it will over flow. it is very used machine... Please Help...


most likely a problem with the diaphragm of the water shutoff solenoid
diaphragms are available or get a complete unit
if it has hot and cold solenoids ( hot and cold water hoses ) and you are not using the hot just swap the hoses over and only use the hot water settings
that way the cold water comes in through the hot water solenoid

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.

I have a kenmore ultra fabric care washer heavy duty 80 series with electronic temperature control and I can only get hot water not cold.


If it used to work and now does not, either the valve that controls the water inlet to the hot is bad or the temp sensor in the machine is bad. What is the whole model number?

I was given a kenmore, Lady kenmore ultra fabric care washer by my girlfriends mother. It worked fine, we oved it, all hookups seem to be correct, hot water is hot, cold is cold, I was able to do one load...


I had this same problem. I hired a repairman, which I highly recommend you do too. He found that the tub's base was corroded. The agitator wouldn't properly spin, and that had something to do with it ability to drain properly. My clothes were coming out sopping wet. He replaced the tub (at a cost of about $450), and then washer was as good as new. He said that washers and dryers that are made now aren't made nearly as well as these oldies. He said it should be in good working order now for the next 30 years.

Sporatically slow cold water fill (Kenmore Series 80)


Could be you have trapped the hose at the rear of the m/c.
If this is not the case, then I suspect you will need a new cold inlet valve fitting..
Please leave feedback.

Fabric Softener Won't Dispense


The fabric softener dispenser is notorious for clogging. Liquid fabric softener is essentially a liquid form of wax. After a period of time it begins to gunk up the inside of the fabric softener dispenser. If you remove the dispenser drawer and look into the cavity, there should be a series of holes in the upper part of the compartment where water sprays into all the dispenser trays. These holes get gunked up and clogged and water will not dispense properly. As a result, the washer goes through a complete cycle, but the dispenser stays full. If this is the case, you can take some cotton swabs and/or toothpicks and clean these holes real good. It may be a bit meticulous, but it should take care of the problem. Post back and let me know if this helps.

My Kenmore Ultra Fabric care II, 80 series


Hello Friend, The problem is the motor coupler has broke. Replacement is easy, it's installed between the motor and transmission. Almost anyone could replace that part themselves.
