Remove the water hose at the washer there is a gorse filter just inside the washer it could be blocked, if that is ok check the fill sensor .

SOURCE: Will not start washing process.

Potential problems:
1. Your vacuum tube has simply come off. 2. There is a hole in your vacuum tube, 3. Or you have a bad pressure switch.
To check,
1. Pop the top open on the unit and raise it up (for specifically how to do this, I'll need need the make and model number). You may need to disconnect wires from lid switch, noting where they go to put them back. 2. Locate a clear rubber-like tube come from under the control panel and going down the the bottom of the tub where it is connected to a small nipple. If it is not connected there, reconnect making sure it fits snug. You're problem is solved. 3. If it is connected, disconnect it and gently pull the end of the tube to you. Inspect if for holes or cracks or cuts. If it looks good, put the end of the tube (you may want to clean it if it's dirty) and blow air in it, keeping the pressure up and listen for a click under the console panel. Try again. If you hear the click, listen for air escaping from tube, maybe a pin hole or more. 4. If you do not hear the click when air pressure is applied, you have a bad pressure switch and it must be replaced, assuming the tube is actually connected to the pressure switch under the control panel. 5. Replace tube onto nipple near the bottom of the tub and replace the top. Reconnect lid switch. 6. Take control panel off and insure vacuum tube is connected to pressure switch. If it is, remove tube and blow pressure directly into pressure switch. If you hear no click, the pressure switch is bad.
To help you further or help you find the part, I will need the make and model number.
Good luck, this problem is more simple than it sounds.

Mashine fills with water

check the program dial or settings. Put the machine off. then the water slot should close. If it does not close it is defect and you should ask a tech to replace it, or buy a new machine.

We had to turn off our water a couple of times this week and now the kenmore washing machine keeps filling with water when it is not in use. We also have a kenmore water softener don't know if this...

if the machine is filling on it's own you have to replace the water valve located on the back of the washer.when you shut off the water and turn it back on sediment in the pipes can get disturbed and flow into the valve,when the valve goes to fully close it can't because sediment is inside the valve and stopping it from fully closing,the only way to fix this is to replace the valve,you don't want to come home to a flooded out home because of the valve.whenever you write about your appliances send the model number so i can look up your model and give you the part number,when you go to your parts store,give them the model number off of the machine and they will sell you the correct part.

I have a wd62 washer/dryer. my machine will not fill with water but will wash and spin, can you please tell me what i could try. thank you.

In practice the washer should not wash without water in, if it does wash without water, then it could be a faulty or sticking water level switch.
The other possibility is the water inlet hose is frozen, turn the water off to the washer, remove the inlet hose, and lower it into a bowl or bucket, then turn water back on, and see if it comes through o/k.
If it does, then problem is in the washer.

Cycle won't start just makes a humming noise

if you have just installed this machine or it has been moved out make sure that the water supply taps are on as the humming sound could be the water selanoids (electronic water vales that allow water to flow) if there is no water in the machine it will not advance, check water selanoid, check to see if another prrogram give the same fault, put your ear close to the machine to see if you can lacalise the sound (never remove the the caseings without turning power off 1st very real chance of electric shock)

No water coming into washer, but washer starts agitating at start

Your water level switch is defective.  It is generally located below the tub.  It is jammed closed and the machine thinks it has water in it when it does not.
