    If the water inlet valve is bad you can verify this by switching the wires on the solenoids, if you only have cold water after switching, you know the solenoid is bad if not then the timer is bad. Only thing possible is bad or disconnected wire, stopped up screen, bad solenoid or bad timer.

The water inlet valve solenoid is probably faulty. You can check it using a multimeter or ohm meter for continuity to see if it is faulty. The solenoid is most likely faulty on the cold water side. Here is a picture of the inlet valve solenoid assembly. Hope this helped and best wishes.

I have a Kenmore washer model 110.98762792 and im having a problem with the cold water. When the water temperature switch is set to the cold/cold position the washer does not fill with cold water. W


Since U get warm water that tells you that the cold and hot water solenoids are both operating. Ergo the anomaly has to be with the device that controls temperature.

Hi I have a problem with my Kenmore washing machine,in particular I can not use hot water anymore. When I use my washing machine hot water does not stop at set water filling level (law, medium,high)...


Please post the model number for your washer. It sounds like your hot water valve has failed and is not closing. Unplug your washer's power cord and turn the hot water spigot that comes out of the wall on. If you still get water filling your washing machine, it's definitely the washer's valve and you will need to install a new set (hot and cold valves are both part of the same assembly).

Cold and hot water are mixed up.


I just purchased the same model and have the same problem. Call Sears and have a repairmen sent while still under warranty. The water temperature sensors needed to be replaced in my washer.

Kenmore 90 Series Washer : cold water fills at just a trickle:

Kenmore HE 3.8 washer has only hot water even with cold settings


If the washer fills very slowly when you have it on a cold setting the cold water may be shut off behind you washer or possibly the hot and cold are switched. if that is not the problem then you have a relay problem with the machines electrical system.

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.

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.
