Re: Kenmore 80 series 110.26822692
I get plenty of hot water, and just dribbles of cold water. I've checked the following:
1. the cold water pressure is good.
2. the cold water hose is not blocked.
3. the cold water wire filter- between hose and washer is clean.

Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. The solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
If you check the warm water flow you'll likely find it is HOT...and not warm. Check the faucet end of hose to see if screen is clogged. Should be screened washer with the dome portion of the screen facing out at you. Remove it and clean with brush to remove grit or scale from screen. If you find nothing there you need to replace the water fill valve located at the other end of the hoses. Good Luck
Hi, It does sound like the inlet valve is bad. If the screen inside the inlet vavle is not plugged, you will most likely need to change the valve. If you will send me a model #. I can tell you how to get to the valve for replacement.
it sounds like the hot water supply hose on the back inlet water valve is not opening up,to check it switch the hoses,cold on hot,and hot on cold,put the washer on fill cold,if hot water comes out you know it's the water valve-mike
Try disconnecting the hoses from the rear of the machine and see if the screen filters are clogged up and also make sure that their is plenty of preasure and volume of water when you turn on the hoses unhooked directed into ther drain. This is likely your problem as it is unlikely both the hot and cold fill valves went or bad out at the same time.
Yes patrick you can try removing the cold hose from the washer, look inside the valve for a metal screen. If it has sediment blocking it remove screen, clean it and reinstall. If still no water replace inlet valve.
