The problem may be attributed to either a leaking water inlet valve, or the associated internal hoses that run from the valve to the dispenser. The following link explains how to access the inside of the washer and/or replace the valve (if required):

Hot water (only) leaks somewhere in Washer

The water system in washers is simple. There's a valve assembly with electro-mechanical valves. There's a solenoid (electro-magnet) for hot and another one for cold. The hose connections typically run directly to the valve with no intermediate connection. Water from each is mixed together and runs through a short tube to the tub. The problem has to be a leaky valve, since the problem does not occur with cold-only cycles.

Type the model number, LAT9420AAE, into Google and you will get several appliance parts dealers. Look at the second (cabinet) drawing, and you will see that the water valve assembly is item 7. (The filter screen is also number 7, don't be confused.) A lot of the parts suppliers apply their own part numbers for this to make it hard to compare prices, but the common part number seems to be 22002360. The parts houses want $51-65$ for this part.

Now, type that number, 22002360, into Google. You will see the part you need for $15.90 at Amazon or a third-party equivalent for $10.99.

That's still too expensive. Type 22002360 into eBay and you will see new parts for $7.95 with free shipping. You can buy that and have a nice dinner out with the money you've saved.

Replacing this part is trivial assuming you know which end of a screwdriver is which. You will not need exotic tools.
Turn off the hot and cold water.
Unplug the washer.
Remove both hoses.
Lift the top cover--no need to disconnect wires. (Usually you do this as follows. There are clips at the front, near the corners. Insert a putty knife. When you find the clip, push in on it and lift the top at the front corner. Same at the second corner. Now you can pivot the top up.)
Remove the outlet hose from the valve--short hose that goes to the tub. Pinch the clip legs with pliers and slide it up the hose. Then pull the hose off the old valve.
Transfer the wires, one at a time, to the new valve.
Unscrew the old valve from the machine and remove it.
Screw the new valve in place.
Reconnect inside hose.
Close top.
Reconnect outside hoses.
Plug in machine.

Wster is warm when cold is chosen

Hot water solenoid not closing completely.

Right inside the washer housing, where the hoses connect, the part that the hoses connect to is usually the hot/cold solenoid valve.

I would recommend your first step be to purchase and replace that solenoid valve assembly. In most machines it's not that hard once you figure out how to open the machine. The first thing that I would try is to stick a large flat head screwdriver under the front of the top assembly near each corner and see if the top pops up when you apply steady downward pressure.

I got an error message flashing F H during the rinse cycle the water, both hot and cold are turned on all the way.

"FH" stands for "fill hose" and means there is a problem related to water getting into the washer. Disconnect both water hoses and check for junk in the filter screens built into the water valve. You'll see them when you disconnect the hoses. Also make completely sure that both the hot and cold water is turned on. The problem could also be with the flow meter. The flow meter is an electronic device in the water supply area that lets the control board know how much water is flowing into the tub from the water valve. It's possible there is a problem with that. It's flat and about 2 inches round. It's in the top left rear corner of the washer near the water valve.

Cold water will not fill, yes my hoses are right, yes the screens are clean. I switched the hoses and it will fill with cold if the cold hose is on the hot side

The solenoid valve for the cold water has failed. Even though they operate separately, the cold and hot solenoids are usually in the same unit so the entire part that the hoses connect to will have to be replaced.

Water leaking onto the floor


hat leak may not be in the machine. It may be one of the hoses going into it. Look to find out where the water is actually coming from. If it is a hose from the faucet behind the machine, the hose can easily be replaced at a low cost. If it is only leaking with hot water, check the water inlet valve at the rear of machine where the hoses connect, top left rear facing it. If it is leaking and running down the left side, it is the wrong side for the pump unless it running across the floor and out the left side. If it were the hose, it would leak all the time. It sounds like the hot side has gone bad on the inlet valve. You can save several dollars by fixing this yourself.

Tilt it back and look for two screws, near each corner on the bottom front. Remove these screws and pull the bottom toward you. It should lift off the clips on top. Run the machine carefully, moving parts and see if the leak is actually coming from the left rear and from somewhere up high. First try cold water, then hot. If it leaks on one and not the other, then it is the valve. Be sure to unplug the machine if you decide to change this part. Also you might want to mark where the wires go back to be sure you do not reverse the hot and cold water, as well as fittings and connections. The water leakage evidence should be visible. If not, wash a load and watch for where water leakage occurs. Just look. Do not touch since there will be electrical current supplied.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My Kenmore 110 92587210 Washer is slowly letting water in

The solenoid for the cold water valve has failed in the open position and needs to be replaced. The valve unit is for both hot and cold. It is the item that the water hoses are connected to.

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.

Kenmore 110.92274100 Rear Panel Access - Cold Water Problem

the top panel comes off via 2 screws that hold control panel on
once this done yuo can lift the whole hob and front and side panel to expose the workings
the cold water valve has a filter inside the water entry so to check this just take off the hose to the machine and look inside hole
if this is ok then you may need to replace water inlet valves
i presume you have high pressure water if not buy valve that is for low water pressure

Have model 88675 with slow hot water fill

I once had this problem. The solution was to remove the hot water hose connection to the washer and look at the filter/screen inserted into the end of the hose connection on the washer machine. This screen protects the washer components from foreign particles entering. You may find a badly-clogged screen, so clean it. I have seen a cold water screen clean, while the hot water screen was clogged...something to do with hot water and minerals or iron in water.
