Washer fills extremely slow. Hoses are fine water


Hi, check to see if there's good water volume coming through the hoses attached to the washing machine. If there is, check to see if the screens inside the water-inlet valve are clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve.

Cold water supply very very slow


This is a result of a restriction in any one of several places. Start with the washer off / unplugged from the outlet and shut off the water supply that feeds the washer's water supply hoses. The hot a cold water valves (those that are turned off independently of each other) should require the same number of turns to shut off. If not - one is open more than the other and could be a cause for the slow fill. Unscrew the hot AND cold water hose connectors from the washer. Inspect the inside of the connector to ensure there is nothing obstructing the hose itself. Make sure the rubber washer is seated properly, too. Check the entire length of both hoses to be sure there are no kinks or evidence of crushing. Also look for stretched circumference hose that indicate it could breakat any time. Damaged hoses should be replaced promptly to minimize chances of flooding should a hose burst. Hold the ends of the hoses inside the wash machine in such a way that splashing is reduced. Open the water supply and determine if the flow of water is the same or different for the hot and cold water. If the same, the problem is at / in the washer. If unequal flows are detected (with both valves opened the same amount) , the issue is probably with cold water supply or shut off valve. You'll probably have to call a plumber if the difference in flow bothers you that much.

If the flow is the same, it could be a problem with the water inlet or water supply solenoid inside the washer itself. Many washers have a strainer or filter inside the water supply connections. Check yours for foreign objects, debris or build up and clear any found.

Reassemble and and make sure connections are tight (do not use a wrench to tighten) enough to prevent leaking and turn of water supply. Operate the washer and compare cold and hot water flow while filling the tub. If still unequal, you'll have to either call for repair or look further for a restriction in the solenoid valve or deeper inside the machine if it bothers you that much or is painfully slow to fill.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

I have a whirlpool washer model #LSQ9549LWO i have very little "cold water" flow but i have great "warm and hot " water flow . What could be causing this ? thank you for any and all...


remove the cold water hose to check the cold water faucet and make sure you have good flow there,, if you have good flow then the problem is the hot/cold water mixer -- this is the plastic mixer that is conected to the washer and both hoses connect to it,, it is held in place by one screw and has two sets of wires going to it. remove the hoses and then remove the rear panel, remove the screw and disconect the wires ( lable to remember what wires go to hot and to cold ) -- you should be able to take this mixer valve to your main hardware store and buy new -- and if they don't have it then go to your local appliance/repair shop and they should have plenty in stock, ( these mixers go out quite often do to internal corrosion ).

Very little cold water flowing into washing machine - have already replaced water valve. plenty of hot water.


turn your water off and unscrew cold water hose from washer put it inside the drum and turn on the cold water if it runs at full force the problem is in the new valve if not it is in the water shut off. Also check your water valve screen where the hose screws on and make sure it did not get plugged by scale in the water hose.

Very slow cold water flow at the beginning of wash and rinse cycl


There might be some debris in the cold water valve screen. Remove cold water hose and check the valve screen, clean as necessary. BTW some hoses have screen inserts too, so check the hose as well.

Good luck,

COLD WATER IS RUNNING SLOW INTO WASHER. THERE IS PLENTY OF FLOW IN THE HOSE AND NO KINKS AND THE SCREEN IS CLEAN. HOT WATER FLOW IS FINE. WASHING MACHINE MAKES A GROANING NOISE WHEN COLD WATER IS ENTERING.


Based on your description, the selenoid is bad.
The same device feeds both cold and hot water - so locate your machine model number and year.. and look up the replacement incoming water selenoid part number. You will need to purchase it and replace it.

If your machine is under warranty, call their Customer Service line and report the water flow/noise problem.

Please let us know your findings...

Very slow cold water fill, why?


First make sure that you have adequate water flow from the hose bib coming from the wall. You can do this by turning off your cold water connection at the wall, then disconnect the cold water hose. Then turn the faucet on and make sure the water flows freely. The most common reason for your problem is a clogged screen where the cold water hose connects to the back of the washer. To check this, disconnect the cold hose from the back of the washer and clean the small screen inside the cold water inlet on the washer.

Kenmore 110 Top Load Washer-cold water fills extremely slowly


No it is probably the screen that is either in the end of the hose that attaches to the machine, and/or the screen is placed so that the cone is toward the machine instead of pointing away from the machine.
If the cone is pointing towards the machine any debris in the lines would collect and eventually fill the screen cone and slow or shut off water flow.
