This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

I'd also see the following PDF on Whirlpool / Kenmore top load direct drive washers. It has a description of how they work and troubleshooting sections.

The problem sounds like one of the water control valves or switches, (assuming that you've verified that the hoses to the washer are turned on.

Kenmore HD Series 80 - hot water trickles in.


Pull the two screws at the bottom corners of the control panel. Pivot the panel up. Lever the two metal keepers underneath forward and up to remove them. Tilt the housing forward and pull it toward you to remove it. Make sure you unhook the lid switch wiring plug before you remove the housing.

Water inlet valve should all be one piece for hot and cold.

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.

Cold water trickles, hot water fills fast as normal


where your water lines connect there is a sc reen inside and if it is clogged with rust lime and or mineral deposit. it needs cleaned out. you can pull it out with a ice pick or something pointy. Check your screen first and if that doesn't fix ya then yes replace the unit.

Cold water trickle hot water runs good


turn off water valves at wall, disconnect the supply hoses from the washer. where the hoses connect to the washer, there is usually a stainless steel screen/strainer inline on both the hot and cold inlet. corrosion on the cold side is pretty common. Menards, Lowes Home Depot stores sell the replacment screeens.

Cold water filling


There are filter screens where the supply hoses connect to the washer. On some brands there is a screen where the hose connects to the water valve at the wall. The screen is probably full of sediment.

Kenmore series 70 top load washer - cold water fill very slowly.


The screens in the line are clogged. There is usually a screen in the washer hose at the point where it is connected to the faucet as well as one by the water inlet valve. NEVER REMOVE THE SCREEN BY THE WATER VALVE. As for the one in the cold water fill hose, that can be cleaned or replaced.
