Is this a new development or has it always done it slowly? Before jumping to parts changing, make sure it isn't something simple like a kinked or obstructed hose or even something like someone nearly closed the supply valve!

Testimonial: "Hose water flow is fine.The water flow is same with or w/o screen. It has been a gradual slow down after a few months. Hot water flow is close to 2x's as much. This is why I need to know how to replace the cold water solenoid. Thanks, Gary"

My GE washer rmodel GTWN 2800D2WW WILL NOT FILL WITH HOT WATER,IT WILL ON THE COLD CYCLE need answers asap

Unplug machine
Close both hot and cold water valves at the wall
Get a 5 gallon bucket, disconnect the hot water hose at the machine and place the end of the hose in the bucket
Slowly open the hot water valve to see that hot water flows through the hose
If no water flows from the hose:
close the valve, remove the hose from the valve and slowly open the valve to see that water comes out, if yes, check the hose for screens at both ends and clean or replace them, if no water came out of the valve, get a plumber
If water flows from the hose:
Check to see that it gets hot
If not hot get a plumber
If hot, close valve and check for a screen in the male port on the machine where the hose goes, clean or replace it..
If any screens were replaced or cleaned during this test, remove the cold water hose and do all the same to it, cleaning and or replacing them also, and then reconnect both hoses, open both valves, plug the machine in, and retest to see if you have hot water now
If still no hot, you may call a repair specialist or acquire a repair manual pdf online and test the water inlet solenoid, the water temp switch, and the timer
Note if it is the timer, placing it in a different cycle usually produces different results, so try that, if the solenoid you'll need the proper tools and the skill to disassemble and reassemble your machine, so you may want to call a repair tech

My washer initial had a rinse cycle problem where no rinsing occur after washing, now it spreads to the wash cycle where it is pausing at the this cycle, need urgent advice

The problem is you are not getting cold water fill. (rinse is all cold water fill) Check to see if the inlet screen is plugged by turning valve off that supplies cold to the hose attached to the machine, then removing the hose at the machine and checking the filter inside the water valve where the hose was just removed from. If screen is not blocked, replace water valve.

Kenmore washing machine 110.20922990 cold water filling slowly

Good day,
As far as cleaning the screen, you can pry it out and toss it. It may serve you for a while. The option, is to remove the valve completly, and clean it under running water with something like a stiff toothbrush.

Note: If the hot side is filling decently, then the cold water side of the valve is swelling internally, and the valve needs replaced.
In this area, the parts houses sell a GE universal water valve that is very good, and might be cheaper than the original. It's all I use.

Cold water enters washer very slowly

First - check the water inlet hose screen for calcium or rust build-up.


If cold water is filling slowly, take these steps:
  1. Unplug the washer.
  2. Turn off the cold water supply faucet.
  3. Remove the fill hose connected to the back of the washer.
  4. Checkthe fill screen on the cold water inlet valve for debris or depositsthat can restrict the water flow. If necessary, you can carefully pullthe screen out and clean it. Flush the inlet thoroughly and replace thescreen. NOTE: If debris makes it past this screen, it can cause thevalve to leak and cause a flood in your laundry room. Monitor thewasher for this type of problem is you pull the screen out and clean it.
  5. Placethe end of the hose in a bucket and briefly turn on the faucet to checkfor proper pressure and flow from the cold water hose. If waterpressure from the cold inlet water hose is bad, check the hose forclogs. If the hose is okay, then I recommend calling a plumber to checkthe water supply to your washer cold water faucet.
  6. If the above checks do not help you resolve the fill problem, you will likely need to replace the inlet fill valve.

Your cold water fill valve (mixer valve) solenoid has failed if after cleaning - the condition remains.

Kenmore 80 series model #110.26882503 fills slowly

For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Kenmore 80 series model #110.26882503 fills slowly

Yes, the only other thing I would do and you may have done this is to put the hose directly over in the washer tub and turn the water on to check the flow. If that's good then replace the water valve.

Water very slowly fills Whirlpool washer

Check the screens inside the water valve. They get plugged sometimes. Also check both ends of your hoses. When installed most companies put screens or screen (1) in the cold water line at the valve.
