Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
The symptoms you describe are consistent with a clogged water inlet. I would suspect the cold side.
If you have a temperature selection knob turn it to a cold wash and start a cycle. See if it just dribbles in there. If so that is the problem for sure.
Turn the washer off and unplug the power cord. Behind the washer are 3 hoses. 1 for the drain (larger of the 3) and 2 for the incoming water (smaller 2). Where the two smaller connect to the washer there should be a 'C' and 'H' stamped or marked on the back. Turn the valve off on the wall for the cold hose. Take the cold hose off at the washer. Put the hose in a bucket and turn the valve on the wall back on. Flush this hose until it runs clear. If it dribbles out from there it is a problem with the house water valve and you need a plumber, if it runs fast out there, look inside the fitting that the cold hose was connected to on the washer, if it is plugged up clean out the debris and reconnect the hose. If it still dribbles you will need to replace the water inlet valve on the washer.
