Close your faucet valve & unscrew your hoses to check screens on hoses & machine. Clean out well. Water shd be in good pressure at faucet. Refit, check for leaks. If this is not the problem change your inlet valve, it is easily done.

Rate me pl........ if helped.

How do you clean a washer hose


If you mean the water supply hoses, usually the intake screen becomes plugged with debris from the house water supply. The screen is removable with a small screwdriver or other small tool. Sometimes it helps to just reverse the ends of the hose and place the washer end into a sink or bucket. There should be a screen on each washer entrance connection that can get plugged as well. Hope this helps!

The screen on my coldwater feed keeps rusting up


No, don't poke it through. It will clog elsewhere. Clean the intake screen completely. Buy a $3.00 in hose screened washer. Put it in the hose end connected to your taps. The reason cold clogs and not hot is that the rust settles in the bottom of the hot water tank and doesn't get pushed thru the lines. The cold water is a direct feed. Clean the newly installed screen monthly as your supply taps are way more convenient than the connections to the water inlet vavle at the back of the machine.

I have had my washer a little over 15 years. It runs great but it takes way to long for the cold water to fill. We checked the incoming hose, it is not kinked and does not have build-up and water pressure...


depending on how hard you water is. Sediment will build up in hoses and intakes over time. Calium and rust. has there been a water main break in your area prior to problem start? Try back flushing intake and check filter screen at intake also

Water goes in very slow. Cleaned the intake filter where the hoses connect.IS the valve worn out to where it does not open all the way?


Check if the volume of water supplied to the washer from the water line through the hoses attached to it is good. If yes, the screen inside the water-inlet valve if it is clean. If clean, the water inlet valve is defective and you need to replace it. The water inlet valve is located inside the washer on the upper back portion. It is where the water supply hoses are attached to.

Kenmore HE3 Front Loader Washer Cold Water Intake problem


For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.
