Ty for being here. I have a kenmore stack washer

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.

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:

My stacking kenmore washer dryer will only run hot water.


That would be a problem with your water inlet valve. Before checking that make sure the screens in the hose is clear and when you disconnect it from the washer there is a screen inside the valve. Here is a video on checking the water inlet valve. Different unit but procedure is the same. www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html

I have a Kenmore washer model no.4174102000 that has broken and was advised it cannot be fixed. I have a Kenmore stackable dryer model no.41781042000 and am being told by Sears that I have to buy a new...


a stack unit is a very risky investment, altho it's understandable if you have limited space. if the hold downs on the washer are rusted out or broken thru you need to have someone weld them for you. That's how we used to do it where I worked but stacks are not usually easily worked on. I'm afraid you will probably have to get an entirely new unit or maybe a used one from a reputable used appl. dealer in your area. Check around, you might get lucky and find one relatively inexpensive

Kenmore Washer/Dryer Stack -- Need to replace Washer


first of all. comming from a Sears Technician.. (don't yell) -- the delivery drivers only know about delivering stuff. they dont know too much,
if the two are the same size they can be stacked.
sometimes have to rig something up
and yes, for that model the top is removed, clips go on the rear and screwed at the front.
in some areas it is sold seperatly as a stacking kit

    Dryer door


    I would try to run the dryer again. If that doesn't work, it's time to call the repairman.

    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.
