Kenmore Series 80 heavy duty has a water flow problem

My Kenmore Series 80 heavy duty from abut 1985 has a water flow problem. It started out just being the cold water now it is both. The water just dribbles out. The cold I can get to flow by turning the main water valve off and back on. if the hose is disconnected the water flow is fine, so it has to be in the washer. The fact that if I turn the valve off and back on makes me think it is something other than a clog.

Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. The solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

I have kenmore 80 series heavy duty/ super capacity plus washer that after it fills with water,hot or cold and it starts the wash cycle, I noticed that the agitator only moves once in awhile and stops


hum either a bad timer sticking the point contacts close. have u tried this in all cycles? and possibly a motor with bad windings not enough power to run agitation? try running in mild or gentle and see what happens? I was tempted to say the cam dogs in agitator but they dont work then stop then work, when they go out they go out.

The hot water was a trickle, so I removed the hot water hose and cleaned the screen filter. I turned it back on and the flow was great for about 5 seconds and now barely flows at all. Worse is that the hot...


Hi,
Take the hose back off more rust and dirt came through because od the volume of water going throgh the pipe and hose. When you take it off this time run some water at full volume in a bucket to flush everything out.
Reclean the screen and you will be fine...
