From the symptoms you have described, it sounds like you may have a water inlet valve (also known as a fill valve) that has become clogged with sediment and has started to fail. Before assuming the valve to bad, however, here's a few items to check:

1. Check to make sure the water taps are turned all the way on (If I'm insulting your intelligence, I apologize. But, you wouldn't believe how many times I've discovered this problem).

2. Make sure the fill hoses are not kinked, causing the water flow to be restricted.

3. Turn off the water and remove the fill hoses from the back of the washer. Check the sediment screens in the ends of the hoses (if equipped - some hoses have them, some don't) and check the sediment screens on the fill ports on the back of the washer. If clogged with sediment or hard water deposits, clean with a a 50/50 solution of hot water and distilled vinegar.

If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, it is common for the sediment screens to become clogged over time. Sometimes a good cleaning can restore the water flow. However, if the water flow still isn't desirable, the valve may need to be replaced. The following link explains how to access and replace the valve, if required:

Replacement parts may be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites listed also include helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need. If you have questions, or need assistance locating parts, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the lid) and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

The problem is the pressure switch has failed or the hose is plugged up, has a hole in it. These are usually inexpensive and are very easy to replace. Here is a video this will walk you thru testing and replacing a pressure switch. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

Kenmore Heavy Duty Series 70 washing machine gets stuck in cycle.


Either your timing motor has broken or the gears that it drives are stripped. The timing motor is easy to replace but if the gears are stripped you will need a whole new dial assembly.

No spin cycle


Something simple. Plug off the wall mains. Find your pump, dismantle to locate block. Before that you could check out your filter to clean out.

Timer stops at the end of wash cycle, won't began drain cycle


if it fills and agitates but stops at the drain/spin portion, it sounds like you have a problem with the lid switch. if it thinks the lid is opne, it will not drain or spin.

Kenmore 60 series will not drain


Well if this is a belt driven model then your solenoid coil is bad.
This model 's motor only revolves in one direction. To spin it has to shift gears. It does this by means of a solenoid mounted on the transmission called a wigwag. Note: if the lid switch is bad no power can go to the wigwag and shift it. If this is a direct drive model(no belt) then it has to be a bad lid switch.
