Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

Cold water only very slowly trickles into the washer. Hot water works fine. Cold water has very good pressure and volume at all other sources in the house. The cold water hose at back of washer is clean clear of bends. This is a stackable, (dryer above washer) about 3 years old.

There can be 3 reasons for this I will tell u the easiest way to test this first
Problem1)turn the water off at the blue tap fitting that is proberbly under your sink take the blue pipe off at the washer end and place it into the sink turn the blue tap back on if the water comes out quick then the problem is more then likely your cold water solenoid that is either slightly blocked were it fits to the washer,But if it doesnt come out quick then the other 2 problems are as follows.
Problem2)the blue tap that u turn the cold water on to the blue pipe undue the little screw in the middle of the tap and pull the blue fitting off now with a pair of pliers turn the square metal fitting that was under the blue fitting making sure that the end of the pipe is in the sink if it comes out quick then that is the problem the blue tap fitting is rounded off when ot should be square turn the water of and replace the pipe and turn the water back on the cold water should be better now.
Problem3)the blue tap that u turn the cold water pipe of at the copper pipe is blocked or it has a broken shut off valve inside it this will need replacing these are the only problems that it could be let me know if this is any help to u peter

My washer will fill with water during the wash cycle just fine, but during the rinse cycle the water just trickles in. The water lines seem to be fine. What else could be causing my problem?


usually the wash is a mix of hot and cold and the rinse is just cold, that said, it is most likely a problem with the cold water supply. check to make sure the cold water valve is all the way open and the hose isn't kinked. If those are ok turn the water supply off and remove the supply lines on the machine side, you will see a screen inside the washer that may be clogged with sediment. If so, just clean it out and put it back together. You may also want to run a wash cycle on cold only to see if it fills slowly for the wash cycle. If it does fill slowly on cold you have low pressure on the cold side.

Cold water trickles in and fills up slowly


You either have a water pressure/flow problem or the inlet screen in your inlet valve is clogged. Remove the cold water hose and use a bucket to check if you have good pressure and flow. If that is good, look and clean the inlet valve screen for debris. Hope this helps.

Cold water trickles in tub. Hot water fine.


remove the cold water hose from the machine that is your service line feeding into it.
a screen in the inlet were the hose attaches to is probably clogged up

The cold water fill just trickles, I removed filter it was not clogged, hot water runs fine. I checked water flow at faucet, I checked for kinked hose. Did not find any obvious problem. Is there a check...


Good day,
The washer has a dual valve, Hot and cold. The cold side has failed. Valve needs to be replaced. Very common problem.
Before changing, turn off cold water supply, remove cold water hose at the machines valve, and turn on to check for proper pressure.

I think the cold-water solenoid went bad on my washer - plenty of hot water flow, but cold only trickles into the washer. The rest of the house is fine for water pressure.


yes the most likely problem is your water valve hasgone bad.but check the hose connection and see if there is any sediment built up in there. if not replace the water valve

Hot water just trickles in both of my Kenmore top loader washers


Try reversing hot for cold hoses and see what happens. That will test your valves, hot water pressure, etc. As far as I know, the valve screens are right where the hoses hook up.

Rinse water barely trickles out of my washer


Do you fill the machine with hot water only?

If so, this is what I suspect. The filters in the inlet hoses on the back of the washer need cleaning. Remove the garden hose connectors, remove filter, clean, replace.

When filling with hot only you get a lot of pressure thru one hose. When you rinse, the best you can do pressure-wise is cold rinse -- but the cold water filter is going to be more clogged than the hot so it delivers less water.

When you use warm rinse, you get mediium pressure thru both lines, again less water than al hot on filling the machine.

Washer will not pump water


There are screens in the inlets for the hot and the cold water. Depending on your water source and the age of your plumbing, you could have sediment collecting and blocking these screens. Check and flush before you do anything.
