Use a this blade putty knife to push spring clips in while pulling on corner of top. sometimes can be a near. no worries though you can repair the bent clips if they get messed up easily.

Kenmore 70 won't let in any hot water.


Check to see if there is power going to the hot water solenoid.
If there is power,then replace the mixing valve.

When control on warm or hot no warm or hot water comes out, just cold


The problem is a bad hot water solenoid on the water inlet valve (also known as a mixing valve). There is a separate solenoid for hot and cold water. If the hot water solenoid fails, you will not have any warm or hot water. Replacement is simple and inexpensive. The following link explains how to access and replace the inlet valve on a Kenmore top loading washer:

Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com

All these sites offer great service. Prices vary between them so shop and compare.

If you have any questions about this repair, or have need additional assistance, please post back with your complete model number (located along the wash tub rim under the washer lid). I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Kenmore is manufactured by Whirlpool, so these instructions do apply.

My Washer is only filling with hot water and cannot complete the rinse cycle because hot water is not an option.


You may have a defective cold water solenoid on the water inlet valve. There is a separate solenoid for hot and for cold. Since nearly all washers use cold water only during the rinse cycles, you are correct, the washer will not complete a full cycle. You will need to replace the inlet valve. The following link explains how:

This is a very simple and inexpensive repair. The average cost is about $30-$35. A replacement can be purchased at any of the following websites:

If you need further assistance, please post back with your complete model number (located under the wash lid along the tub rim), so that I may be able to provide you with better service. I hope this helps you.

Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer Model MAH4000AWW low last spin


two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news

Water not hot on hot temperature setting


BS ....on the back inside the washer are two solenoid operated valves that control the hot and cold water flow. your hot valve has ceased to function...and needs replacement.  also make sure your hot water valve is open fully and that the screen inside it isn't clogged.

Kenmore washer series 80, Clothes still soapy


If you are getting no water spray during the rinse cycle that would cause the soapy clothes issue.

Are you getting cold water during the wash/rinse cycles? If you have the machine set to warm/warm you may only be getting hot water while the final spin is calling for cold.

If you have cold water available then the timer is not calling for the water spray. The problem is either in the mixing valve or the timer.
