SOURCE: THE COLD WATER DOES NOT SHUT OFF WHEN FULL

It sounds like the water inlet valve needs to be replaced. The solenoid which opens and closes allowing water to flow or not flow, seems like it's stuck open. What brand washer? & Model? I could help you find the correct part. They aren't usually too expensive & if you love your washer, it's not worth buying a new one. :-)

SOURCE: Kenmore 90 Series Washer : cold water fills at just a trickle:

your hot water goes through the water heater so contaminates settle in the heater. the cold does not, there is a screen inside the fill valve where the hose hooks to the valve on the machine. if this in not plugged then the fill valve will have to be replaced. because of the build up of contaminates..

SOURCE: My Kenmore 110 92587210 Washer is slowly letting water in

The solenoid for the cold water valve has failed in the open position and needs to be replaced. The valve unit is for both hot and cold. It is the item that the water hoses are connected to.

Kenmore eco cycle front load washer. error E70 displays and stops washer. What does E70 mean?


You should check the model number of the washer. If the model number starts 417, then the washer was made by Frigidaire. In that case, the E70 error indicates that cold water is not being detected at the washer inlet sensor.

In some cases, this could be due to connecting the hot water line to the cold water inlet (and the cold water to the hot water inlet). Make sure that the cold water shut-off valve is open. Try swapping the water hoses (close the shut-off valves first). Try new hoses; some anti-flood hoses will restrict the water flow if they detect damage. Thus you won't have sufficient water coming into the washer. (You can check this yourself. Turn off the shut-off valves. Disconnect the hoses from the washer and put the ends into a bucket. Then open the shut-off valves and check the water flow.) While you have the hoses off, check for debris in the inlet filters.

If the hoses are fine, you probably have a problem with the washer's inlet valve or the reed switch that measures incoming water. The inlet valve should be replaced if you find that only hot water enters the washer.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of your washer for more information. It will be on the inside of the door opening (probably at the top).

The cold water line now takes a long time to fill for a rinse. Yes, I checked the hose to its wall outlet.


FYI, Only 3 potential issues would typically cause this problem.... in order of simplicity to correct:
1. Clogged screen in the water connector(s). Remove the cold water line going to the washer - both ends. Inspect and clean the screen(s) and blow through the hose to varify that it is clear.
2. Solenoid that allows water into the washer is failing. Reverse the cold and hot hoses. Does the problem move to the hot side? If so, the problem is the solenoid-replace it.
3. If number 2 does follow the hose transfer, the faucet washer has broken and is blocking the water flow. SHUT off the water supply to the house, open another faucet to relieve the water pressure, replace the washer in the cold water shut off valve at the wall.

from what you said it sounds like you have a problem with cold water coming into the machine,shut off the house water valve,remove the water lines off the back of the washer and mark them so you'll know where the connect when you put them back onto the washer,stick them in a backet or in the tub of the washer,turn the water on,if the water comes out strong then you have a problem with the water valve on the washer,see if you can pull out the screens out of the valve and clean them but most likely you'll need to replace the valve.if the water doesn't come out strong then you have a problem with the house water

My Kenmore washer will run only on cold


Your cold water valve is likely turned off or glogged with rust. If valave is on, turn off and clean out sceen at the end of hose. if that does not work, cold water solenoid needs to be replaced.

Kenmore 400 washer on warm cycle begins to fill with warm water and then it turns cold. Repairman can't seem to figure what is wrong. This is a brand new washer.


When the water turns cold, check the other hot water outlets in the house. Possibly the water heater is simply running out of hot water.

If that's not it, I'd have the repairman replace the water valve and while he's got the hoses off, check to be sure the filter screens are not stopped up. There's really not much to the water temp control so there's not much else I can think of that might cause this problem.

Kenmore washer 90 series will not fill up with water


You can shut off the water, then remove the hoses to see if the screens on the fill valve are gunked up. This is much easier to do than to replace the valve. I think you'll have sucess on that route :)

Kenmore HE 3.8 washer has only hot water even with cold settings


If the washer fills very slowly when you have it on a cold setting the cold water may be shut off behind you washer or possibly the hot and cold are switched. if that is not the problem then you have a relay problem with the machines electrical system.

Cold water good for a few minutes then slows to a trickle. Shut off for a few hours and cold water good again for a few minutes. Inlets are clear. Is this normal behaviour for a dying valve?


Yes, it will fail soon. it is beat to go ahead a order a new inlet valve assembly asap. the pressure sensors that are housed in the valve assembly are failing.

Kenmore Elite washing machine


This code means its not getting a sufficient water supply. I was doing a cold wash and noticed it was sucking down some hot water, so shut off the hot. MISTAKE, after a little bit the HF code came up. Apprently it likes to decide for itself just how cold is cold. Darned Computers.

To make a short story long, when I shut off the hot, it apparently shredded the washer and sent the remnants down to the little filter thingy at the washer itself, whereupon they reassembled themselves into a clog, once again giving me the HF code.

(Check your user manual Troubleshooting section. I think it says to press Pause/Cancel twice)
