The first thing to check are the screens at the inlet of your washer hoses. Turn off water supply to washer then remove the hoses at the washer side,then look into the inlet valves and you should see one screen in each hose inlet,carefully pry out the screens and clean in the sink then reinstall screens and the hoses and check for leaks.. this should speed up your cold water fill,you may still have to replace the control switch or solenoind valve assy to get your hot water..Easy job hope this helps GOOD LUCK

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.

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    I have a top loading Kenmore Washing Machine. I don´t have the excat model but looks like a KENMORE HEAVY DUTY SERIES 70 AUTOMATIC WASHER, MODEL # 110.92273100. The problem presents after finishing...


    You may have 2 defective parts.
    First,make sure the hot and cold water hoses are connected correctly and both turned on.
    If the water fill problem is the same,the water temp switch is bad.
    The not filling after the wash cycle could be a bad lid switch.
    Set the machine for SPIN and turn it on.
    If it does not spin,replace the lid switch.

    Kenmore 90 Plus Series washer washer takes forever


    is the cold water all the way on?

    if so, the first thing to do would be to check the screens in the cold water fill hose and the screen in the cold side of the water valve on the back of the machine. if that is not the problem then replace the water valve.

    (turn the water off before taking the hose loose)

    Kenmore washer 90 series will not fill up with water


    You can shut off the water, then remove the hoses to see if the screens on the fill valve are gunked up. This is much easier to do than to replace the valve. I think you'll have sucess on that route :)

    Kenmore 90 Series Washer : cold water fills at just a trickle:


    your hot water goes through the water heater so contaminates settle in the heater. the cold does not, there is a screen inside the fill valve where the hose hooks to the valve on the machine. if this in not plugged then the fill valve will have to be replaced. because of the build up of contaminates..

    Kenmore 90 series Water pressure turning up and down


    it will switch from hot to cold and back and forth trying to regulate the temp. You probrbly have more pressure in your cold water line than your hot or vise versa. This will cause it to seem to pulse. Dave www.washermd.com

    Washer stops, won't fill, rinse or agitate


    • Check the following:
    Is the power cord plugged into a grounded 3 prong outlet?
    Is the indicator on the Cycle Control knob properly lined up
    with a cycle? Turn the Cycle Control knob to the right slightly
    and pull to start.
    Are the water inlet valve screens clogged?
    Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on?
    Is the water inlet hose kinked?

    • Does the water level seem too low, or does the washer
    appear to not fill completely? The top of the agitator is
    much higher than the highest water level. This is normal and
    necessary for clothes to move freely.
    • Has a fuse blown or is the circuit breaker open? If problem
    continues, call an electrician.
    • Are you using an extension cord? Do not use an extension
    cord.
    • Is the washer in a normal pause in the cycle? The washer
    pauses for about 2 minutes during certain cycles. Allow the
    cycle to continue. Some cycles feature periods of agitation
    and soak.
    • Is the washer overloaded? Wash smaller loads.
    • Is the lid open? The lid must be closed during operation.
    Washer will not agitate or spin with the lid open.
