Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
My Elite Washer all of a sudden after two years will not fill with water. I put the lid down and the aggitator starts to go with no water in the tub
You have a bad inlet valve. The valve is behind the hoses, you cant get to it one of two ways. Either through the top by removing the knobs and screws and face plate. or by removing the panel behind the hose

The most likely failure is the water level pressure switch or a failed lid switch. If the washer will drain and spin then it's not a failed lid switch. If it will not drain and spin the likely failure is the lid switch.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has 3 wires attached to it, V (violet), P (Pink) and a T (tan) wire. When the tub is empty of water, contact V&P are closed to allow the tub to fill with water. Once the water level reaches the desired setting, contact V&P opens and then contact V&T closes to start the motor agitating. So, with this said if you were to unplug the washer and remove the wires from the water level pressure switch and test to see if terminals V&T is closing by using an ohm meter would indicate if the contact is closed or not.
