Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Not getting cold water at all, only steaming hot water is coming out

A few days ago my father in law installed the washer in replace of our old washer that broke. Before the old washer broke the cold water worked fine on it. Now we have this really nice washer but only steaming hot water is filling the tub thing, not cold. The washer is brand new so I don't know why it wouldn't work. Maybe he set it up wrong? I'm not really sure but we need this washer to work because we've been having to spend around 50$ a week just to do clothes at a laundrymat. Please answer asap.. Thanks :)

Look at the water knob one will say hot one will say cold . on the one that says cold there is two arrows one will say open one will say shut turn the knob closer and closer to the arrow that says open. turn it till you cannot turn it any more . now your washer is most likely to work if not look at creaters glide if still does not work cheak water pipes and coneshoins and if still does not work ask someone at the store and if STILL does not work return to store and buy a new one i hope your washer works.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: kenmore 80 series top loader the washer will not fill with cold water only hot water

Yes patrick you can try removing the cold hose from the washer, look inside the valve for a metal screen. If it has sediment blocking it remove screen, clean it and reinstall. If still no water replace inlet valve.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series model #110.26882503 fills slowly

Yes, the only other thing I would do and you may have done this is to put the hose directly over in the washer tub and turn the water on to check the flow. If that's good then replace the water valve.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Slow Cold Water Fill

There is possibly a filter screen in the hoses as well as the water valve.Check the hoses for screens.Occasionally the water valve will deteriorate inside and must be replaced.
I am on a water well and have the same problem. This weekend I installed a inline filter purchased from Lowes. It has stopped the sand and silt problem. You will have to buy one extra water hose to do this yourself.

Our little gourmet dual hot/cold faucet has just started to gurgle out hot steaming water all day without use. The complete faucet is burning hot. Unit is 4 years old and used frequently.


having hot water trickle out all day will make the whole unit hot,, to the touch,, what you need to do , is turn off both the water supplys under the sink,, then remove the handle by removing the hold down screw,, after that , remove the hot water valve,, Just remove the nut that's on the outside of the fixture, what your going to find is at the end of that valve, is a washer,, made of hard rubber,, that needs replacing,, but also, inside of the fixture is a washer seat, its either brass or stainless steel,, that takes a seat tool wrench to remove that ,, but to make sure its repaired completely, both the washer and seat need to be replaced, seat tools are pretty inexpensive at Lowes , or Home depot,, and thats where you can get the parts you need also,, be sure and compare the old parts with the new, so take them with you when you go, most hardware stores that have plumbing supplies will have what you need, the seat just unscrews , but they can be a little tough,, if you decide to get a seat tool, they have straight ones and 90 degree ones ,, the straight ones you'll need a wrench to assist turning in the removal and install,

I bought this front loader no more than 2 years ago-I dont like using hot water to wash my clothes so I always put in on the cold-now no water wants to come through the washer-it only works if my hot water...


Sounds like the water inlet valve is faulty. It the part that attaches to the hot and cold water hoses. It really easy to fix, just disconnect the hoses, pull the washer out and remove the back of the washer to get access to the valve. You can find a replacement by going to your local appliance supply house, or online such as www.repairclinic.com.

Hi I have a problem with my Kenmore washing machine,in particular I can not use hot water anymore. When I use my washing machine hot water does not stop at set water filling level (law, medium,high)...


Please post the model number for your washer. It sounds like your hot water valve has failed and is not closing. Unplug your washer's power cord and turn the hot water spigot that comes out of the wall on. If you still get water filling your washing machine, it's definitely the washer's valve and you will need to install a new set (hot and cold valves are both part of the same assembly).

Washer temp setting changes by itself


I also have a Whirlpool washer/dryer for my condo, although I don't know the model number of mine. I had the same problem -- after it was precisely a year old, suddenly one day the hot and cold started coming out reversed. I was able to fix mine by more or less temporarily fiddling with the water pressure. What I did was one time, when the rinse cycle was running and the washer was filling up with hot water (grrrr...), I completely shut off the valve supplying hot water. So at that point the water stopped filling into the washer, and then I started tinkering with the cold water, twisting the valve off and on a few times. Then BINGO, suddenly the cold water "kicked in" and for the remainder of the rinse cycle, it filled the washer with cold water. I then turned the hot water valve back on, and since then it has been running correctly.

My washer wont run in the hot water cycle


Sounds to me like your water valves in the back are going bad, just had it happen on mine the other day, I bought one online for like 15.00 that was new solinoid valves for both hot and cold water. took about an hour to install with no instructions (take the old one out, new one hooks up the same way) or call the washer repair people.

Should the washer be hot after the rinse cycle?


Try cycling a cold/cold wash and see how that comes out.. if it comes out hot then your water inlet valve is letting hot water in when it shouldn't.. conversely, try cycling a hot/hot wash and see that it does indeed come out hot... ( quick tests to verify performance)..hope this helps.

Water/steam coming out of top right side.


where you see the steam use electrical tape over that area and see if it stops.it does sound like a seal problem but another thing to check is to make sure the unit is level.
