This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump

removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Also see the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive machines.

It has a troubleshooting section as well as testing procedures.

It sounds like a bad Water Inlet Solenoid. I'd follow the procedures for testing it.

See the following for how to release the console and cabinet if necessary.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Top Loading Washer not filling when set on hot only

check the water inlet valve assembly. Also, this could be a timer issue as well. check the Hot valve block connector on the control panel board. it could be lose or separated or broken. there is a wire that leads to the valve on the hot side as well. check this.

The inlet valve that the hoses attach too the solenoid for the hot side may be stuck closed or clogged with sediment. May need new inlet valve.

I pull the knob to do a regular wash and nothing happens, no water no agitation. However, when I turn the knob to rinse it that works. This suddenly happened, was working before. Is it the knob?


Rinse on most washers is cold water your wash cycles can be cold hot and even warm. Problem You may have is a bad water feed valve Or Timer and possible bad wire harness at motor to timer
check water valve Turn washer to regular wash cycle pull knob on will washer fill ?
if water starts to fill then change washer temp if washer has this.
if water comes out on all settings water valve is fine.
Check the water both hot and cold that it is turned on;at faucet.
Your Kenmore Most likely has a bad water valve check for hot water side clog or not working.

New Maytag washing machine, but hot water only comes out in pulses. Cold water works fine. Unsure what's wrong.


Check the hose washer on the washer end of the fill hose. (there is probably a screen in it that may have dirt in it. Clean it if this is the case) Are you positive yout hot water valve is turned all the way on?

You may have to remove the valve stem to check the washer which may have come loose.

Turn the water off before you take the top off the valve!!!!

If you need more help, let me know. I want to assist you.

No cold water to my Maytag Top loading washer


Pull the washer out from the wall and disconnect the water lines from the washer. Check to see if a build-up of minerals is clogging the screen on the cold water line where it enters the washing machine.

No hot water


I guess you have check the settings on the machine.

So I am guessing possibly the acuator (electric) that switches the hot water flow on and off and being initally controlled from the timer circuit. Both hot and cold have actuators. These are usually what the flexible hoses screw into. The will have connections on them inside the machine.

You need to have the machine looked at.

WARNING
If you tamper with or check the wiring yourself, ensure the plug is removed from the powerpoint.
You can still get an electric shock of the neutral wire if it is plugged in, even if the powerpoint is turned off

Hotpoint washer , top load


This sounds like a faulty water valve. Water is coming in the cold water valve when it shouldn't. If the machine has an automatic temp control make sure it is turned off.

GE Washer wbsr3140d5ww water problem


Hello Chad
Welcome

Sounds like the cold water knob or switch is not switching and may be faulty.

I have a problem with my washer
For some reason when I try to start the washer and I have it set to cold it does not work if I put it to hot then its fine
The cold water does work though because if I change the washer to a later cycle cold water comes out just fine.
So it almost seems like its the timer knob
any ideas?
Thanks
