Slow Cold Water Fill

I have a Kenmore series 70 washer, aside from the cold water filling oh so slowly, it works fine. I have cleaned the screen on the cold water supply side of the hose several times. The hot water supply fills fine. Is there another filter that I should be cleaning?

There is possibly a filter screen in the hoses as well as the water valve.Check the hoses for screens.Occasionally the water valve will deteriorate inside and must be replaced.
I am on a water well and have the same problem. This weekend I installed a inline filter purchased from Lowes. It has stopped the sand and silt problem. You will have to buy one extra water hose to do this yourself.

I have a Kenmore Heavy Duty 70 series washer older model. It will not alow cold water to fill washer. Tried warm and hot water only fills the tank. Hot water will fill fine with no problem.


shut the house water valve off,take off the cold water line on the back of the washer and stick it in the tub of the washer,have someone hold the hose and turn on the cold water valve,if water comes out then you need to change out the water valve on the washer,if no water comes out then you have a problem with the house water valve.there are screens in the valves see if you canpop out the screen and clean it out and put it back into the valve,you can try that but sediment could have went through the screen and damaged the valve,if so change it out.next time send the model number and i can give you part numbers,let me know what you find

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..

No cold water, only hot


The cold water inlet line is either clogged (it has a filter screen in it) or the cold-water solenoid valve is malfunctioning.

Remove cold water line, check for obstruction -- if no success, inspect electrical connections on solenoid valve (where the cold water line attaches to the back of the machine). If valve is getting current, take it apart and clean it. If that doesn't work, replace the solenoid valve.

Kenmore series 70 top load washer - cold water fill very slowly.


The screens in the line are clogged. There is usually a screen in the washer hose at the point where it is connected to the faucet as well as one by the water inlet valve. NEVER REMOVE THE SCREEN BY THE WATER VALVE. As for the one in the cold water fill hose, that can be cleaned or replaced.

Sporatically slow cold water fill (Kenmore Series 80)


Could be you have trapped the hose at the rear of the m/c.
If this is not the case, then I suspect you will need a new cold inlet valve fitting..
Please leave feedback.

70 series wont fill w/water


CHECK SCREENS IN WATER VALVES FIRST. CHANGE TEMPERATURE SELECTOR TO COLD ONLY, SEE IF IT WILL FILL. IF IT DOES FILL AND SCREENS ARE CLEAN YOU MOST LIKELY NEED A WATER SELONOID.

Have model 88675 with slow hot water fill


I once had this problem. The solution was to remove the hot water hose connection to the washer and look at the filter/screen inserted into the end of the hose connection on the washer machine. This screen protects the washer components from foreign particles entering. You may find a badly-clogged screen, so clean it. I have seen a cold water screen clean, while the hot water screen was clogged...something to do with hot water and minerals or iron in water.
