Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

Cold water into tub of wash machine

Ty for being here. I have a kenmore stack washer dryer. Washer is a model 417.94802 301. The hot water feed work fine comming into the machine. However the cold feed only comes in at a trickle. I disconted the cold hose from back of machine. Turned on the cold water valve. Thier is plenty of hot water comming to the machine. Checked the wire filter inside the the feed where the cold water hose attaches to machine. it was clean, no plugs. I tried to take out the adapter where the hot and cold go into the machine. no luck without takeing the back off the machine. Is it possible somewhere inside my machine from where the cold water feeds in and where it dumps into the wash machine tub i have a plug? How can I check this? Got a plug somewhere.

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 wher 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.

you particularly handy, or do you usually have someone do this sort of thing.

Inside the machine you have a valve called inlet.

The inlet water valve will collect the cold and hot water lines, and open alternatively one or the other during cycle.

To access the inlet valve you need to take apart the machine, and that is not an easy task.
If you DIY remember to unplug power, there is high voltage running inside your appliance.

Below the inlet valve for your model:

Cold water pours in during final spin


No - the timer is the likely suspect.

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.

No rinse


Make sure that you have both, hot and cold water connected and turned on. Some models will not advance through rinse if one of the hot or cold is off. See if this solves the problem, Catriver.
