Check the water inlet valve. Unplug the machine, turn off the water, and remove the supply hoses. Check the small metal screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. (Especially the cold water side) Check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter and testing continuity. A lack of continuity will mean a bad solenoid. I'll attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

When my Kenmore machine is running on the wash cycle warm/warm no water is coming at all. I could run the machine only with cold water even on the cycle warm/cold.


Most likely the hot water hose is plugged up, or least likely, the hot/cold valve is broken or plugged up.
Find a large container, or better yet, hook up a garden hose that you might try the faucet where the hot water is hooked up and see if water will come out of it when the washer hose is not hooked up there.
If it will not, you have a plugged up hot water pipe or the water heater shut off valve is closed.
If you get good water pressure and hot water from the faucet, look at the filter screens that are inside the ends of the hot water hose and see if any are plugged up.
There may be several.
If not, perhaps the inlet water solenoid has failed. That plastic part is where the hoses attach to the washer itself.
God bless your efforts.

What is the A:09 code


Code A09 means there is a problem with the water supply. Ensure your water is turned on completely, unplug the machine for 1 minute and then plug it back in. If the code persists, you should turn off the water and remove the supply lines. There is usually a filter in one end of each hose or at the water valve hookup. Ensure that the filter is clean and replace it. If you have done this and you know that you have good water flow through the supply hoses, I would suspect the water valve solenoid(s) as being defective.

SM 8525492A whirlpool washer rinse cycle no water comes out, just hums


when the washer goes into rinse cycle it only uses cold water so clothes don't rinkle,so most likey you have a problem with your cold water,do this,shut down the water to the washer,remove the water lines from the back of washer and mark them so you know how they came off,stick the hoses into the washer if they reach or a bucket,turn on the cold water to see if water is coming out of hose,if water does come out of hose good then stick the cold water hose back on the washer and run it only on cold,if it doesn't fill then you know you have a problem with the water valve on the washer and it's not the house water valve that's bad,and usually if you have a problem with the washer water valve it will just hum and no water will enter the washer so if you hear a humming sound it will be the water valve.tried looking up the model number you sent but it doesn't come up on the parts lookup

We have hot water but no cold water. My washer for a long time spit cold water out real slow then it stoped I checked the hoses and little filter going in to washer it was clean i hear it humming but no...


Start by disconnecting the washer from the cold water hookup, and screw a garden hose to the cold water pipe, running the garden hose to the outside. Then, turn on the faucet to the cold water, and see how it flows out the hose.If it is good, your problem in inside the machine.
You will need to dismantle the washer and inspect the cold water inlet to see if it is plugged up. Sounds like it is. "Sears Parts" online will show you a parts schematic for your machine by model number. They will also show you a parts list. " e-bay" offers new and used washer parts.
Be blessed.

Water pouring out of cold water connection the hookup is only connected to the hot water because the steam hookup is suppose work for hot water.... So they say??????!!! Is there suppose to be another hose...


YES YOU NEED TO EITHER PURCHASE A SCREW ON PLUG FOR THE COLD SIDE OR HOOK UP A HOSE FROM A COLD WATER VALVE TO THE COLD SIDE OF YOUR INLET WATER VALVE ON THE WASHER (YOU SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN A HOSE WHEN YOU BOUGHT IT, IF NOT YOU CAN PURCHASE ONE AT YOUR LOCAL HARDWARE STORE OR APPLIANCE PARTS STORE , OR SEARS PARTS DIRECT. LET ME KNOW IF THIS WAS HELPFUL!

When running a cold wash the water is not coming through, only a trickle. A hot wash puts water in fine. The hose is not blocked and water comes through that fine (eg if we switch the cold hose to the hot...


Wow! Good job. Most folks don't do that much, or have that much info when they write in. I'm impressed.....really. Thanks.
Your issue sounds like either a plugged or defective solenoid, which is a pretty easy fix.
1. Plugged - Where you disconnected the water hose from the washer is the solenoid. You have one for the hot water, and one for the cold. Turn off the water and remove the hose from the solenoid valve, and look for a screen and rubber washer. If you have any plugging in the valve, you'll probably see it there. Pull the washer and screen and clean. You already know about the water that's going to spill when you disconnect the hose.....
2. Defective Solenoid Valve - If the valve is defective, you'll have to replace it. Gain access to the valve, usually by removing the back cover. Make a sketch if necessary where the wires go, what color to what terminal, etc. Take your old part, along with your make and model number of your washer to your local appliance parts supply house. The replacement cost is reasonable.

This should get you back up and running.
Best regards, --W/D--

Cold water just dribbles into GE washing machine


Unhook the cold water hose from the back of the washer. Look inside the water valve for a clogged filter screen and clean it. It the screen is not clogged, replace the water valve.

Ty for being here. I have a kenmore stack washer


Inside the machine you have a valve called inlet.

The inlet water valve will collect the cold and hot water lines, and open alternatively one or the other during cycle.

To access the inlet valve you need to take apart the machine, and that is not an easy task.
If you DIY remember to unplug power, there is high voltage running inside your appliance.

Below the inlet valve for your model:
