Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
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:
