Not filling with water. service light is on


HI. First you will need to check the water fill faucets to make sure that they are turned all the way on.If the faucets are on, then move on to the hoses. Check the hoses for kinks. Make sure the hoses are straight, and not curved. If all checks out Ok here, i would advise to move on to the filter screens.

The hot and cold water from your home is connect to the water inlet valve on the back of the washer. In each end of the water supply hoses there may be a filter screen to catch debris and prevent it from damaging the washer. The water inlet valve also has filter screens. If the filter screens become clogged, the result is low water pressure, no water or the wrong water temperature,as well. The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connecting to it at the back of the washer. Start by turning off the water supply at the valves on the wall. Disconnect both hoses from the back of the washer. Place the hoses into a bucket and turn them on to confirm that you are getting adequate water pressure and to clear any debris from the line.

Inspect the filter screens on both of the hoses and the inlet valve for debris build up. If you find any debris, clean it out. The screens in the inlet valve are not removable so use caution to avoid damaging them.

If you are getting good water pressure and you find no build up of debris, then the inlet valve itself may be faulty.

TESTING PROCEDURE FOR THE WATER VALVE ASSEMBLY

There are two wires connected to each solenoid on the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals ( Be sure to not pull the wires). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. Test the second one in the same way as the first

Water will not spin out but you can the moter running



  1. Unplug the Kenmore washer power cord from the wall outlet. Pull the washer 2 feet away from the rear wall. Locate the screws that fasten the control console to the top of the washer. Remove the screws with a Phillips-head screwdriver and raise the control console to the rear of the washer. The console has two hinges on the back that it will rest on while in this position.

  2. Locate the wiring harness connector that connects to the door switch plug. The connector is white, and is toward the top rear of the washer. Grab the sides of the connector with your fingers and pull it away from the door switch plug.

  3. Unhook the washer cabinet from the rear panel. There are two clips on the top of the washer that secure the cabinet to the rear panel. Place a flathead screwdriver into each clip, and pry the clip off the washer cabinet. Grab the sides of the washer cabinet and pull the cabinet away from the washer.

  4. Find the water pump below the washer tub. The pump attaches to the top of the motor and has two hoses attached to it as well. Place a small container under the hose connections to the water pump. Grab the ears on the compression clamp securing the upper hose to the pump with a pair of Channellock pliers. Squeeze the ears together with the pliers and slide the clamp down the hose. Pull the hose off the pump and set the end in the container.

  5. Grab the ears on the compression clamp holding the lower hose to the water pump with the Channellock pliers. Squeeze the ears together and slide the clamp down the hose. Pull the hose away from the water pump. Locate the two large black clips that secure the pump to the motor. Pry the clips off with a flathead screwdriver. Pull the pump away from the motor.

  6. Position the new pump over the motor and secure the pump with the two retaining clips. Connect the upper hose to the upper port on the water pump. This is the hose that connects to the tub. Use the Channellock pliers to compress the ears on the clamp and slide the clamp over the end of the hose and port on the pump.

  7. Slide the lower hose over the lower port on the water pump. Slide the compression clamp over the end of the hose and water pump port to secure the hose. Grab the sides of the washer cabinet and position the cabinet over the washer base. Secure the cabinet to the rear panel with the retaining clips. The clips will snap back into their respective holes in the top of the washer cabinet.

  8. Reconnect the wiring harness to the door switch plug. Slide the harness over the plug until it snaps into position. Lower the control console back over the washer top and secure with the retaining screws. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet and push the washer back to its working position.

Hi,
You should be able to find hoses upto six feet long... if that is not long enough then there are hose connectors that will connect two hoses together...your local hardware or a big box like HD or Lowes will have the connectors...they have hose thread on both ends and adapt the two female ends of the hoses together...

Water will flow into washer


HI. The inlet valve assembly will be the culprit here. Carefully follow the procedure below for proper inspection of the failed device.

The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it at the back of the washer. Start by turning off the water supply at the valves on the wall. Disconnect both hoses from the back of the washer. Place the hoses into a bucket and turn them on to confirm that you are getting good water pressure and to clear out any debris from the line.

Inspect the filter screens on both the hoses and the inlet valve for debris build up. If you find any debris, clean it out. Use caution to avoid damaging the filter screens because the screens in the valve are not replaceable.

If debris was not present then proceed to the next step of testing the solenoids. Access to the valve may be easiest by opening the top or the back of the washer, depending upon make and model.

There are two wires connected to each solenoid on the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals ( Be sure to not pull the wires). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Slow cold water


1.) turn off water valve that supplies cold water to washer.
2.) unscrew the cold water hose-type connector immediately next to the set of 2 water connections in back of unit.
3.) look into the hose you just removed or into the water connector on machine. you will find a metal screen (like a window screen) that is cone-shaped...if none found then remove hose connection at other end of same hose...remove it and then clean it thoroughly and then re-assemble all.
