Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
This problem is commonly attributed to a water inlet valve that has become clogged with sediment, or kinked/clogged fill hoses.
If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, it is common that have calcified deposits, rust or sediment build up in the lines over time. You can attempt to clean the sediment screens in the hoses (if your hoses have them) and/or the inlet valve on the back of the washer. Cleaning with a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and hot water can often restore normal flow. If this does not work, however, the valve needs ot be replaced. The following link explains how to access the valve and replace:
Scroll down to the section that discribes the steps required for replacing an inlet valve. I've included part resource websites as well.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
