Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Got up this morning to wash a load of clothes. turned to cold and NOTHING but humming from the machine. Hot water works fine. Disconnected hoses, checked filters and found there is NO cold water flowing through the pipe. The valve (handle) is wide open and theres nothing coming out. Almost like it has been turned off somewhere. All other faucets/toilets in house are working fine. Not sure what to do now? Could it be frozen??
It could be frozren depends the temp. of the room u have it in. if thats the case get ur blow dryer out put heat to it. my boyfriend and i have had to do this to our pipes 3xs already.my cold water in the kitchen did to, i just turned it on and waited for it to unthaw. i hope this will help.

either the valveis faulty or the dispenser box is blocked, remove the internal hose from the valve anf see if you have full pressure at that point if yes box is blocked. Regards Advisor

Yeah you need to replace the water valve. To get to it you need to remove the cabinet on the newer direct drive models, If yours has a rear access panel then you simply pop the top to get to the valve after removing the hoses. Fairly simple job. Here is a good website for direct drive coupling replacement . It shows you how to open the cabinet. http://repair2000.com/coupling.html
GVI 151 is the generic part that fix all belt drive models. Direct drive will need its own little water valve buy hay it ain't but 20 bucks.
For a better explanation post you model number in the comment box and I will research it further for you amigo.

The washer has a dual valve, Hot and cold. The cold side has failed. Valve needs to be replaced. Very common problem.
Before changing, turn off cold water supply, remove cold water hose at the machines valve, and turn on to check for proper pressure.
