Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I checked hoses for flow when changing valve. Both were good. Any thoughts. Do you think I my have gotten a bad new valve? Replaced valve with a new 285805 valve. Any help would be appreciated.

switch off power remove top switch off water and remove hose. remove inside pipe from valve - usually held by just a spring clip remove electrical terminals valve is just held with a couple of screws usually - remove these and valve will come away. put back in same order

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.

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..

You can shut off the water, then remove the hoses to see if the screens on the fill valve are gunked up. This is much easier to do than to replace the valve. I think you'll have sucess on that route :)
