I need to replace the inlet valve due to trickling cold water. Good pressure to the valve and the screens inside the valve are clean. Is this something a lay person can do or is this too hard to attempt. Thx annaramzi

Only a trickle of cold water coming into washing machine


If there is no other restriction, the water should flow freely from the hose into a bucket as a test. If good, then it must be a restriction in the solenoid valve. Some can be disassembled and cleaned but the valve assembly is not expensive to replace.

Kenmore front loader washing machine very long wash cycle


You need to replace your cold water, inlet valve.

Unplug the machine from the power source. Disconnect cold water hose. remove the top cover of the machine. You will see the cold inlet valve/solenoide where the hose fits.

Take note of where the wiring goes. You can get the part from your appliance parts outlet.

Refit, and you should be right to go.

Good Luck.

Cold water just trickles in. Water flow up to the


Hello, this is going to be a problem with your inlet valve, First thing to do is remove the inlet hoses from the valve and check the filter screen on both the hot and cold for debris blocking the water coming into the machine. If this is clear then your going to have a blockage inside the valve. Since these valves are factory sealed your not going to be able to clear the blockage, you should replace the valve. Hope this helps...Thanks for using fixya!!! Good Luck!! Mike

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..

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.

Cold water trickle hot water runs good


turn off water valves at wall, disconnect the supply hoses from the washer. where the hoses connect to the washer, there is usually a stainless steel screen/strainer inline on both the hot and cold inlet. corrosion on the cold side is pretty common. Menards, Lowes Home Depot stores sell the replacment screeens.

CHeck to see if the screens in the water valve are plugged. If not the hot water side of the valve went out. Replace the water valve and it will fix both the hot and cold problem.
