If cleaning the sediment screens did not correct the problem, more than likely the hot water solenoid is clogged inside the water inlet valve, or the solenoid is going bad. I would recommend replacing the water inlet valve. The following link explains how:

Kenmore series 80 newer won't fill spin or agitate just hums on cycles and makes no noise on spin cycle

Are you sure the water is on and water is getting to the machine.
If there is no water the water valve will open & hum & nothing else will work till the tub is full.Check the little screens on the water valve behind the hot & cold hoses where they hook up the the machine they get clogged
up sometimes just pull them out and clean them. Hope this helps you

Kenmore 80 series washing machine - cannot get

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. This sounds like either the hose or the water inlet valve screen is clogged. Possibly the pinhole inthe diaphram itself of the water valve. Here is what you can do.

1. Get a bucket
2. Turn off BOTH water valves at the wall.
3. Remove the HOT water connection at the water valve. Then check the inlet screen for debris. You can remove the screen from the water valve by using a knife blade on the very outside edge of the screen tugging outward. Hold the screen up to the light check it for debris. If it is dirty wash it under a light flow of water in the sink. DO NOT reinstall just screen just yet.
4. Use a measuring cup or something similar to catch water at the water valve HOT connection. Select a WARM wash cycle and start the wash cycle. Let the water flow into what ever it is you use to catch the water exiting the HOT water connection.
Tap on the cold water hose connection to try and free the debris inside the water valve as the water is flowing. Do this a few times until you have let water back flow through the water valve for about 20 seconds.

Machine timer off.

5. Reinstall the inlet screen in the water valve and reconnect the hose. Place the HOT water hose in the bucket and start the WARM fill cycle again. This will flush the hose.

Machine timer off.

6. Reconnect the hose at the wall connection and turn on the water at the wall.

7. Select HOT wash and test water flow. It should by now be (fingers crossed) flowing.

You can repeat the above for the cold water side if you need to.

Thanks for using FixYa,

The hot water was a trickle, so I removed the hot water hose and cleaned the screen filter. I turned it back on and the flow was great for about 5 seconds and now barely flows at all. Worse is that the hot...

Take the hose back off more rust and dirt came through because od the volume of water going throgh the pipe and hose. When you take it off this time run some water at full volume in a bucket to flush everything out.
Reclean the screen and you will be fine...

My kenmore 70 series is only filling with cold water. The hot water is wide open threw the hose but, it is barely dripping in the tub. Does anyone know what might be causing this and how i would go about...

Check the strainer on the hot valve for debris. If you do not find trash in the strainer you will need a water valve. Less than $12 most of the time

No cold water going into tub, valve is open

make sure the hoses are not kinked and check the screens inside the valve inlet and make sure they are not clogged

Hot water just trickles in both of my Kenmore top loader washers

Try reversing hot for cold hoses and see what happens. That will test your valves, hot water pressure, etc. As far as I know, the valve screens are right where the hoses hook up.

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.

Kenmore series 80 12 years old

hey thats eazy.your washer has a water fill valve.the two black hoses go to it in the back.inside the valve where the hoses attach their are screens that keep minerals from going into the water valve.also some have screens on the other side off hose too,and after cleaning run the water thru the hose into the drain/sink because minerals may be backed up in house line or hose.If dosent improve after this its in your water valve and theres nothing you can do but replace the water valve they dont come apart for cleaning,or could take apart but looking for trouble because wont then seal and will over flow on to can do it .God bless ,tom

I have a 110 series washer.Why can't I get hot water?

i would like to help, but need more info please, is your hotwater turned on at the washer? if so, then i would look at 2 things.the first is the water fill valve, it sometimes becomes clogged at the screen. Take your hoses off at the washer and look into the valve to see if the screen is clogged, or the valve may just be bad and need replaced
