Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
The wash cycle seems to work properly, the tub fills with warm water when the wash setting is warm and it agitates normally. When it is time for the rinse cycle very little water enters the tub. I have tried the rinse temp settings with and without the auto temp control and warm or cold rinse and the same condition applies. I note that if I adjust the rinse temp dial to an intermediate position in the ATC side then hot water enters. It seems that the solenoid value for the cold water is engaged when it should not be. Since water enters during the fill portion of the cycle just prior to the wash cycle beginning I'm guessing the solenoid is working properly. Since no cold water enters when the rinse setting is on either the normal or the ATC setting I'm guessing the temp sensor or the ATC control board are not at fault. Seems that the only thing left is the motorized controller.
I was partially wrong on my diagnosis. No cold water enters on either the wash or the rinse cycles. I also heard odd noises from the inlet valves. I realized the cold water valve was not opening. I've ordered the mixing valve and plan to replace it as soon as it comes in.
