Almost certainly you would need to replace the water valve that the water hoses connect to on the machine.

If you need help on how to access this part please let me know.

SOURCE: Have Kenmore top loading washer

Other than water lines being clear, faucets turned on, and the strainers are clear (strainers are located right were the hoses connect to the washer), you are looking at a load size switch or a water level sensor failure. A tripped GFI may also be the culprit, as can a tripped circuit breaker.

Both are easily accessible, since they are located in the top part of the washer, in the control panel area.

You might try cycling the load selector switch back and forth, "clean the contacts so to speak". If it starts to work then, you will need a load switch assy soon.

Sears can print you out a diagram of your washer for assembly, and parts. If you have the full model #, you can plug it in at searspartsdirect.com

SOURCE: washer hot water fills fine, but cold water fills

First you should remove the hoses. 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. Here is a video at that will walk you thru the testing a water inlet valve. 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.

SOURCE: Cold water doesn't run into

Sounds like the valve isn't working properly.
One way to test is to turn off the water supplies and at the back of the machine switch the hoses.
Turn on the water and see if you get cold and not hot . If so replace the valve assembly

Very likely it is the valve..the hot & cold run through the same line so if the cold fills fine the line is not clogged. The Part number for the water inlet valve is 285805 it can be purchased at your local appliance parts store on online at

The washer is not filling with water. Once the water is dispensed into the washer, water is not visible and the clothes do not get wet until half way through the washing cycle.


Hello

When the washer wont fill at all then the issue is either with a bad water inlet valve or clogged inlet screen. Please check the water line for any clogs/obstructions and try cleaning the inlet. Hope you understand that you might require water inlet valve replacement if the problem is still unsolved after cleaning. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Only get cold water entering washer ... no warm or hot


1. Close hot water valve behind washer.
2. Remove hot water line from washer side and place it in the drain.
3. Open hot water valve to ensure pressure and hotwater is ok in your drain.
4. If not, problem is home related.
5. If pressure and hotwater are ok, then see if your fill valve filter is clogged where you disconnected the hotwater hose attached to the machine.. Its called a fill valve. Sometimes they get clogged.
6. If the hot water side of fill valve looks ok with no blockage, then you might be looking at a new fill valve.

Kenmore washer fills during spin cycle and doesn't drain completely


HI, this is just a slight clog or faulty drain pump. check the following areas.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

No cold water, only hot


The cold water inlet line is either clogged (it has a filter screen in it) or the cold-water solenoid valve is malfunctioning.

Remove cold water line, check for obstruction -- if no success, inspect electrical connections on solenoid valve (where the cold water line attaches to the back of the machine). If valve is getting current, take it apart and clean it. If that doesn't work, replace the solenoid valve.

Kenmore series 70 top load washer - cold water fill very slowly.


The screens in the line are clogged. There is usually a screen in the washer hose at the point where it is connected to the faucet as well as one by the water inlet valve. NEVER REMOVE THE SCREEN BY THE WATER VALVE. As for the one in the cold water fill hose, that can be cleaned or replaced.

Washer will not fill with water


I solved the identical issue that I was having with my washer, maybe it will help you: I opened the front panel to the washer and found a clear plastic line running down the inside; it had become clogged. Could tell, because disconnecting the line caused the washer to function. Removed clog and it seems to run fine now.
