Kenmore elite top loader

On the cold/cold cycle the water just trickels out. On the warm it comes out normal. The valves are open and connections are good. The washer works fine but it takes a while to fill up. Any suggestions? Thanks, Jody
The unit is a Kenmore elite 110.15962401

First of all check to be sure the cold water vavle is opened all the way, then checked for a kinked hose. if both of those is ok there is a screen in the valve that catches trash in the water. remove the hose from the machine (and possibly from the supply valve )and check to make sure there are no obstructions.

if all that checks okyou have a bad water fill valve. you can order the valve from sears and it is very easy to replace.

good luck..

Kenmore front loader washing machine very long wash cycle

You need to replace your cold water, inlet valve.

Unplug the machine from the power source. Disconnect cold water hose. remove the top cover of the machine. You will see the cold inlet valve/solenoide where the hose fits.

Take note of where the wiring goes. You can get the part from your appliance parts outlet.

Refit, and you should be right to go.

Good Luck.

No cold rinse, only hot

Either the wires have come loose on the water valve or you have a defective water valve.Open the lid and look at the water valve. Are all wires connected?
If yes, replace the water valve.

No water enters on rinse cycle

I was partially wrong on my diagnosis. No cold water enters on either the wash or the rinse cycles. I also heard odd noises from the inlet valves. I realized the cold water valve was not opening. I've ordered the mixing valve and plan to replace it as soon as it comes in.

Cold water rinse just trickles on my whirlpool heavy duty top loader

There is a screen inside the inlet valve that is most likely plugged. Turn off the water and remove the cold hose from the washer inlet valve. You can see the screen just inside the valve. If the particles are a light brown color, it may be water softener resin, requiring a softener repair. Foreign matter can also include sand or other particulates in the water supply.

Water barely trickles out for rinse cycle


It sounds like you have some buildup in the cold water valve screen. Where the hose connects to the washer there should be a screen inside the valve. Remove the cold water hose from the washer and clear any debri on the valve screen.

If this doesn't fix the slow cold water flow then you will have to replace the whole water valve assembly. The water valve is the piece that the hoses connect too and supply water to the washer.

If you have anymore questions about this please ask. I will be more than happy to help you out.

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

Lg washing machine wft855a top loader

Following up my comment from yesterday, I took the machine apart and discovered that the black rubber cover on the valve that releases the cold water had perished and cracked, and wasn't opening properly.
I tested the hot and cold solenoids and everything checked out ok. Was just the cold valve sticking.
The wash cycle was working because I was using hot/warm water. As the rinse cycle needs cold water to get started, it was not working and the rinse and spin cycles wouldn't complete.
I have swapped the valves over for now (put the working hot one on the cold side and am using cold water only). It's working while I order a replacement...
