My Kenmore Washer fills great.....the problem is during the rinse, the water trickle out. there is no water pressure at all during the rinse cycle. But agian, during the fill up, it's has great pressure, and fills up quickly. Is this an issue with the washing machine? It just started. the washer is 8 yrs old....

If so, this is what I suspect. The filters in the inlet hoses on the back of the washer need cleaning. Remove the garden hose connectors, remove filter, clean, replace.
When filling with hot only you get a lot of pressure thru one hose. When you rinse, the best you can do pressure-wise is cold rinse -- but the cold water filter is going to be more clogged than the hot so it delivers less water.
When you use warm rinse, you get mediium pressure thru both lines, again less water than al hot on filling the machine.
1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses. 2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused) 3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside where you just removed the hose. 4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes. 5. Replace the inlet screens. 6. Re-fit the hose to the machine. 7. Turn on water supply valves. 8. re-try.

SOME OF THESE MACHINES HAVE TWO PRESSURE SWITCHES IN THEM, ONE FOR THE MAIN WASH WATER LEVEL AND ONE FOR THE RINSE WATER LEVEL. CHECK FOR A PLUGGED AIR PRESSURE HOSE FIRST AND THEN CHECK THE PRESSURE SWITCHES.
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.
HI thanks for your question. the cold water valve either has a clogged screen or a faulty water valve. remove the cold water hose and clean out the screen, try again. could be all you have to do. if its acting the same. replace the water valve. thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks.
It's not a solution, but the water on our washer here 'trickles down', too...I guess that is normal...But if you have the same brand, you should know those three gray...things...with the black balls in them? They have holes, forming a wavelike pattern...I don't know if that's supposed to Spray, or Drain....Mehh....I stink at solutions...The water level...hmm...just like..a little bit touching the end? :)
