Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore #11092573200 Washer not filling hot water.

When I put the washer on Hot wash/cold rinse, all I hear is a low hum. If I turn the rinse the cold water works. Where do I start to figure out the problem?

    Where do I find the regulator? Do I have to take the control panel apart? How do I do that? I am a complete novice when it comes to fixing appliances. Please help.

  • geoanna Feb 07, 2009

    I only had 2 screws at the bottom of the control panel (ancoring it to the washer and 2 screws at the top back of the control panel. Please make sure we are talking about the same washer. Somehow I posted under the 22422 top load washer, but I don't think that is what my washer is. On the operating instructions it says stock no 25731 series and the model is 11092573200. Anyway, when I took off the control panel I found a bunch of wires connecting the switches with main switch to turn on the machine. No valves. What does the regulator look like?

    Check the regulator which is behind the knobs to turn on the washer, it is either green or red coloring in it, If one of those is bad can have this problem

Ok perfect. There are 2 screws up top and there is 4 to 6 screws on the back of the control panel all those need to be removed and lift the cover off. Down near the bottom you will see to valves one red and one green

I pull the knob to do a regular wash and nothing happens, no water no agitation. However, when I turn the knob to rinse it that works. This suddenly happened, was working before. Is it the knob?


Rinse on most washers is cold water your wash cycles can be cold hot and even warm. Problem You may have is a bad water feed valve Or Timer and possible bad wire harness at motor to timer
check water valve Turn washer to regular wash cycle pull knob on will washer fill ?
if water starts to fill then change washer temp if washer has this.
if water comes out on all settings water valve is fine.
Check the water both hot and cold that it is turned on;at faucet.
Your Kenmore Most likely has a bad water valve check for hot water side clog or not working.

Water wont go in washer when on cold /cold or warm cold but will fill on hot cycle. Only cold water is connected. i dont even have hot hose connected---has worked fine for a year on cold/cold. Now has a...


The inlet valve on the cold water inlet is clogged, dirty or jammed. You need to remove the inlet valve and clean the valve and filter. use back flushing with brushing to clean the filter.
the hum you hear is of the coil working but is not opening to allow water into the system.
Also you can switch the inlet valve from the hot line if needed .
check this link for removing the inlet valve:

I believe the water temp switch is bad. It will start filling on warm then stop if I put it on hot it will fill with cold water. I have cut the hot water off to achieve this but when it reaches rinse it...


it sounds to me that the hoses are connected to the machine incorrectly. Typically if the plumber ran the water lines behind washer correctly the hot pipe is on the left and the cold pipe is on the right sometimes thats backward and be determined by touching hoses while filling on warm setting and see which hose feels hot. On the back of washer they where they connect hot goes on the bottom and cold on top

THE TUB OF THE WASHER GETS REALLY LOW WHEN IS FILLED WITH WATER. NOW, ALSO THE WATER DOSENT COME IN WHEN I TURN IT ON


All top suspend tub washers drop down when they fill with water. And they rise again when they have pumped the water out. This is normal.
What is not normal is water not coming in.'

check following:
Water is turned on
Remove inlet hose and run water to see if it is blocked.
Clean the inlet filters.
If you hear a buzz but no water goes in the inlet valve needs replacing.
If yu use only cold water try swapping the cold hose onto the Hot inlet. Then select Warm Wash.
Then only turn on the Cold Tap.
This will allow you to fill the machine and do a wash.
Watch out though when it comes to the Rinse position......some machines only do a cold rinse, and because you have swapped the hose over to hot it will not fill to rinse the clothes. Until you can get a Tech to do the repair you can just use either a bucket to add cold water for the rinse or use the garden hose to fill the tub with cold water for the rinse.
Have yu got all that?

But will start with hot.kenmore 70 wont start with the cold water


Hi, First thing you want to do is start the cold sysle and listen for a faint hum. If there is a hum,turn supply valve off and remove fill hose.
Look inside the valve on the washer and see if something is plugging the screen. If the screen is plugged flush it out (do not remove the screen.
If the screen is not plugged, and there was no hum when washer was trying to fill with cold water, you will need to change the inlet mixer valve.
Please let me know if this has helped or if I can assisst you further.

Thanks
Vic

Won't complete cycle, stops at rinse. and can't get hot water.


Are you on well water? turn off the cold water to the washer and clean the screen filter out. do not leave filter out.
the machine probably has a cold only final rinse so it won't work properly.

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!

Washer is using hot water on the cold/cold was


Unless your hoses are reversed the machine control is bad and needs to be replaced. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

Washer won't fill with hot water


If you hear a humming, the coil on the water valve is probably OK. On warm, you are getting cold fill only. (hot + cold = warm) Take the hot water supply hose off the machine and look inside where the hose attached to the washer. There should be a screen inside. Remove it and clean it out. Also, check both ends of the supply hose, as sometimes you will find a screened washer in there too.
