Slow water into machine

I have a Kenmore 80 series washer. The water pressure is fine from the wall, and I think we need to replace the water inlet valve. How do we replace the water inlet valve?

First try the washer on cold only,then hot only,if one is slow and the other is not replace the valve,you must remove the 2 head screws one on each side(you might have to pop the plastic covers on each side to get to the screws,after removeing the screws flip up the head,you will see 2 spring clips one on each side,take a screw driver and pop them out,unplug the wire jack on the middle of the washer(that is the lid switch jack,now you can pull the back out just enough to get to the valve,the valve has 1 or 2 screws holding it on,you remove then on the outside,there are 4 wires on the inside to remove plus the fill hose,you can get a valve from your local appliance part store for around$10,or one on line at sears.com-parts,or repair clinic .com,the model number for your washer is inside the washer lid,let me know how you do-mike

My kenmore 80 series washing machine makes a horrible noise and cold side fills about half speed when filling with water. What should I check?


For the slow water issue, you will need to replace the water inlet valve. Here is a link to the part.
Could you describe the noise and where it is coming from?

I have the Kenmore Oasis Elite Top Loader and I am almost always getting a LF reading on the washer. It never completes a full load. What does LF mean?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

LF = Long Fill

This is caused by either low water pressure or dirty inlet water valve screens. Turn off the water at the wall connection and remove the water hoses at the washer connection. (NOTE hot and cold installed positions) Use a thin knife blade on the outside of the inlet screens and lift them out of the water valve. Wash them under slow running water by rubbing your fingers on both sides of the screen. Once the screens are clean reinstall them in the inlet water valve. Re-connect the washer fill hoses. Just for grins... check the wall connection of the water hoses to make sure there are not HOSE screens at the wall end of the hoses.

(As a retailer of home laundry equipment we always installed fill hose water screens at the wall connections due to the local water supply having bouts of micro debris.)
You can clean the washer screens but if the installer also added at the wall connection hose screens you may still have the problem of a slow fill. Just check.

If after doing the above and you know you have good water pressure you may have a problem with the inlet water valve itself in that debris has got past the inlet screens and blocked the diaphragm passage. IF this has happened the only fix it to replace then inlet water valve.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Kenmore 80 series Model 110.28812790 - water leak inside tub


It's quite possible. First see the Sears parts list for your washer with diagrams of all major parts.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=+110.28812790&pathTaken=partSearch

Then see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for these washers and check the troubleshooting section.

80 Series Top Load\ Water Feed


There may be a screen in the inlet pipe where it joins the back of the machine. Also check that the inlet pipe is clear and running water correctly before connecting it back on the machine. If this is OK you may have an issue with the inlet valve not opening fully. This is quite a common issue and will need the inlet valve repalcing.

Kenmore Series 80 heavy duty has a water flow problem


Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. The solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

My Kenmore series 80 washer's cold outlet doesn't work


Hi, It does sound like the inlet valve is bad. If the screen inside the inlet vavle is not plugged, you will most likely need to change the valve. If you will send me a model #. I can tell you how to get to the valve for replacement.

Thanks

Sporatically slow cold water fill (Kenmore Series 80)


Could be you have trapped the hose at the rear of the m/c.
If this is not the case, then I suspect you will need a new cold inlet valve fitting..
Please leave feedback.

Your transmission is not engaging thats why the speed changes your making will sometimes get it to work.Honestly any machine after the 10 year age mark is not worth the cost of replacing the transmission.
