Good day,
Could be one of the screens is clogged up, and that would mean removing the hose, checking it, then checking the inlet screen on the valve itself.
However, it's usually the valve diaphram swelling, requiring installing a new valve.

Here's a tutorial. It's not for replacing the valve which is a nuts and bolts job, but gets you to the area to access the valve. Kenmore's are made by Whirlpool.

First you should remove the hoses and clean the screens in the ends of the hose, some hoses have screens in both ends. While the hoses are removed look inside the water inlet valve there should be a screen in there also remove and clean the screen out. Some screens will not be removable so you will need to clean in place or remove the water inlet valve. If all is clear you will need to check the solenoids on the water inlet valve for power.If the solenoid has power when put in a fill cycle and no water eneters your washer you will need to replace the water inlet valve. Most water inlet valves must be replaced as a unit, so if one solenoid fails you replace the hole valve assembly. These are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/topwaterinletvideo.html that will walk you thru the testing procedure. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. If you need help disassembling there are also videos of disassembling most styles. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models will be available. All parts come with installation instructions.

I have a single control, new glacier bay bathtub faucet control. i don't have the hot water heater hooked up. i'm only getting a slight trickle out of my faucet whenb i turn the knob to cold. is it...


it is likely required. many new faucets have what's called a pressure balance valve that helps prevent scalding by lowering the pressure of hot when the cold pressure drops (due to a toilet flush or other water being run). Because you have pressure to only one side, that can cause the valve not to provide the necessary volume.

Cold water trickles, hot water fills fast as normal


where your water lines connect there is a sc reen inside and if it is clogged with rust lime and or mineral deposit. it needs cleaned out. you can pull it out with a ice pick or something pointy. Check your screen first and if that doesn't fix ya then yes replace the unit.

Hot and cold water trickles from faucet--seems nearly clogged.


The debre from turning off the valves comes through the lines and clogs up,usually the aireator,the screen at the end of the faucet. Take aireator off ,,colena and reassemble. If that does not work,disconnect the  lines at the shurtoff agaoun and look for hte obstructions for the aireator back to the shurtoffs.

The cold water does not run it trickles, hot water runs very fast


If both solenoid coils check the same, you probably have a clogged supply hose. Check that the filter screens inside the hose (if present) and the fill valve inlet are clear of mineral buildup. Try switching the hot and cold supply lines to see if the trouble moves from cold to hot. If the cold still only trickles in, replace the fill valve.

Yes remove the hose from where it connects to washer look inside water valve and remove plastic screen with needle nose pliers Without damaging it. Also make sure that it gets back in proper as the valve will be damaged without it.
