My Kenmore series 80 washer's cold outlet doesn't work

My Kenmore series 80 washer's cold outlet won't work. Hot works OK. Cold water pressure OK through the hose up to the unit (disconnected cold water hose and tested). Believe the problem is in the unit.

Hi, It does sound like the inlet valve is bad. If the screen inside the inlet vavle is not plugged, you will most likely need to change the valve. If you will send me a model #. I can tell you how to get to the valve for replacement.

Thanks
Vic

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

the inlet valves just open and close, if you have high cold water pressure, it will override the hot water. I suggest you turn down the cold water valve, until warm is kinda warm. your cold water fills will take longer, but you will have warmer water

Kenmore 80 series washer with setting on cold/cold the water doesn't run


You might want to try cleaning the cold water inlet screen. Turn the water off where the hose connects to the faucet. Disconnect the cold water hose at the washing machine, you will see a small screen inside the cold water connector on the washing machine. Use a very small screw driver or heavy needle and work the screen out of the inlet. If the screen is not dirty or plugged, you may need to replace the water switching valve. It is the valve assembly that the hot and cold water lines attach too in the back of the washer.
Good luck.

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.

Won't complete cycle, stops at rinse. and can't get hot water.


Are you on well water? turn off the cold water to the washer and clean the screen filter out. do not leave filter out.
the machine probably has a cold only final rinse so it won't work properly.

Kenmore 90 series Water pressure turning up and down


it will switch from hot to cold and back and forth trying to regulate the temp. You probrbly have more pressure in your cold water line than your hot or vise versa. This will cause it to seem to pulse. Dave www.washermd.com

Kenmore 80 Series will not fill up with water


if your washer will agitate when set to fill but not fill, then your pressure switch is bad.
also you may want to check and see if you are getting both hot and cold to your washer.

Kenmore 80 series top loader the washer will not fill with cold water only hot water


Yes patrick you can try removing the cold hose from the washer, look inside the valve for a metal screen. If it has sediment blocking it remove screen, clean it and reinstall. If still no water replace inlet valve.
