Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

Slow filling of elite h3t

First burst is fine, but cold and/or hor/warm filling is slow, with background buzzing


If solenoids or screens were problem, I would not get the first burst in the ordinary programmed 3-4 seconds, prior to the control moving it to the specified wash cycle

ideas?

Kenmore 70 series washer


If you can see a constant water pressure from the hot and cold, chances are the water solenoid valves are ok.

I would look towards resetting to factory and checking the main control unit.

Cold water slow to fill


It buzzes because 120 volt AC is within the hearing range and means electricity is trying to open the solenoid plunger.Make sure the faucet the hose is connected to is turned on. swap hot and cold hoses and see if the Hot water is now a trickle. The solenoid asm that the hoses connect to can be removed and dissambled. It's a no brainer. the parts are mirrors of each otherBe sure to unplug the washer first. Remove the hoses at the solenoid assembely the valve asm has wires coming to it that just push on. A loose connector MIGHT cause this problem. Draw a picture of the wire connections, noting the color of each connection.Now the fill solenoid asm can be removed. It's probably held to the cabinet with one screw. now there are some screws holding the coils to the plungers. disassemble the valve and clean it up. Don't lose the springs that push the plunger to the closed position. At this point you could even swap the plungers on the asm. Just clean the obvious lime and **** upp using a tooth brush and water.DON'T LOSE THE SPRINGS,DON'T EVEN WASH THEM. Assembly is just reversed.you should not have to buy any parts, but don't lose the springs.

On our Model LAT9635AAE washing machine when cycle is on cold/cold the water fills at a very slow flow. If (while water flowing on cold) the water temp switch is switched to warm and back to cold the cold...


You have a bad fill (mix) solenoid valve. The valve in the solenoid is hanging up and by switching it back and fourth between hot and cold its just working its way to the proper position..You were on the right track.....

Cold water fill is very slow and makes strange sound


check with the plumbing work if that is fine then better take it to the dealer to change the inlet valve. attempting to change by yourself can cause other complications.

Buzzing sound


does it ever give an error code? a common problem on whirlpool made machines is the dispenser arm getting caught when changing positions. This part is in rear of detergent dispenser housing and uses a motor and a arm to select detergent/ softner/ bleach/ and fill. you can remove top (screws on back) to watch this.

No cold water, only hot


The cold water inlet line is either clogged (it has a filter screen in it) or the cold-water solenoid valve is malfunctioning.

Remove cold water line, check for obstruction -- if no success, inspect electrical connections on solenoid valve (where the cold water line attaches to the back of the machine). If valve is getting current, take it apart and clean it. If that doesn't work, replace the solenoid valve.

Amana washer has no hot water - cold works fine


There is a solenoid control valve on all washing machines, located where the water hoses enter the machine. If you have a rubber mallet, you can whack the machine gently with the mallet. If the problem is resolved, it was just a stuck valve. If not, then you likely will need to replace the whole solenoid valve control. Typically there are controls for each water supply.
