Question about Kenmore 15864/15862 Top Load Washer
On cold water settings, water often does not flow into the machine, sometimes with repeated attempts it will work, but then when it gets to the rinse cycle, the cold water will not flow in. Hot water works fine. Hose and water valve are OK, filter is not clogged.
Filter not clogged.....
I'm not sure about that. Go to your kitchen sink and to the bathrooms and remove the filter on the aerator. Take a look and see what the "clog" index of each filter is.
If some or all of those aerators are partially clogged, then that is a clear indication of a potential clog in your cold water circuit to the washer. It would just be that the washer was the first to show an indication outside of the direct examination you just did to the kitchen, et al..
I recently had that exact problem with a house I bought. Kitchen was clogged at the aerator -- but that was only the first symptom.
The rest -- toilet, bathrooms had a similar problem, but the problem had not yet advanced to e obvious to all valves (although one toilet filled slowly).
Check again -- I think that you'll find restricted (not yet clogged) water lines.
My solution was to clean all aerators, replace all toilet valves, and cycle the dishwasher several times.
Always look for the most obvious solution -- generally that is the problem.
Occam's Razor -- look it up on the internet.
