Dirt in your solenoids may be a problem. But other than that it could be bad solenoids in general. It could also very well be that the unit that senses the water level has a part broken. On the inside there is a tube that connects to the tub. When you add water it increases the pressure in the tube and signals the shutoff. Sometimes the connections on this tube go bad.. or the tube itself gets a hole.

Easy way to tell. Start the unit with the on/off switch. Wait a few seconds then turn it off again. If the water flow doesn't stop you're most likely looking at a solenoid problem. If the water flow stops when you turn the switch off then you're most likely looking at a problem with the water level sensor.

Kenmore won't fill with water


Make sure your water valves are turned on. Check for blockages in the rubber hose and especially where the water enters the washer. Sometimes the chack valve of a washer can collase and restrict the flow of water entering the washer. It is usually located just beyond where the hose connects to the washer. Metal screens can clog and stop water flow. Check and replace as necessary.

The electronics of the washer may also not be advancing to the point where it allows water to enter, The main dial may be faulty. Check and verify all washer settings also

I have a flashing H and F on my washer screen


The machine must take on 10 and 1/2 gallons of water in 8 minutes or less when filling.
If not it could be low water pressure,bad water fill valve,bad water flow meter or bad CCU(central control unit).

In reference to the LF error code on your Kenmore Washer

When your washer displays error LF , it is due to low water pressure, slow or continuous fill.All washers are designed to operate with a water supply pressure of 20-100 PSI. When the pressure drops below 20 PSI the washer can have the following problems;

* Slow Fill- low water pressure reduces the speed at which water flows into the machine.
o Verify the pressure at all other water sources in the house (i.e. sinks, showers, etc..). If you find other places where the pressure is low, the problem is not with the machine but with the water supply.
* Continuous Fill- The valve may not fully seat under 20 PSI which would allow for a constant flow even when the machine isn't supposed to be filling.
o Contact the water company to verify the pressure being supplied to the house
* Error Codes- LF for long fill or FH for no water detected.
o A plumber may need to be consulted if the pressure is found to be too low.

Kenmore Elite washing machine will not fill as fast as usual.


You will need to get behind the washer, turn the water off, disconnect the hose from the washer, look for a screen inside the water valve, hopefully there is one that you can clean if necessary. I always put the hose over in the washer and turn the water on to check the flow.

If the screens on both hot and cold are clear, water flow is good on both hot and cold, connect the water back to the washer. If the flow is still slow then the problem is inside the valve. The valve will have to be replaced.

Kenmore HE4T Washer Leak


there are 2 possible causes.
either
inlet valve leaking - turn water off and if water fill stops, it indicates valve leaking
valve being powered when machine off. this is very unlikely but to check, disconnect washer and see if problem stops
also, if drain is plumbed into a spigot on the sink trap, every time you empty the sink, some of the water will flow into the machine. to cure this, take the drain hose as high as possible under the sink in a swan neck
