The most common cause of this is a fouled water inlet valve. There are screens to keep most of the sediment out of the valfe itself. These scteens are not made to be removed, and if you clean them, make sure you don't use anything sharp. If any of the sediment actually makes its way into the valve, it can cause a flood.

Best solution is to replace the valve.

Did you check the screens in the watervalve when you removed the supply hoses? They can crud up over time and restrict the flow. Clean them in-place with a toothbrush and spray bottle. Reconnect hoses and test. While testing move temp switch from HOT to COLD to WARM settings and observe flow of water and temp of water in each position. Cold may flow a little faster than HOT but should be close to same flow rate. WARM however should have twice the flow rate of hot and cold temps seperately. Let me know what you find.

I have a Kenmore washer model 110.98762792 and im having a problem with the cold water. When the water temperature switch is set to the cold/cold position the washer does not fill with cold water. W


Since U get warm water that tells you that the cold and hot water solenoids are both operating. Ergo the anomaly has to be with the device that controls temperature.

Hot water fills very slow(30 MIN OR MORE TO FILL) good water flow from spicket to washer, screens are clear. sewems to be something with the washer its self


Might be a bad inlet valve. To confirm, swap the hot and cold hoses to your washer so that the cold water feeds the hot water connection and the hot water feeds the cold water connection. Turn off both hot and cold water faucets. Set the washer for a warm water wash. Turn on the cold water faucet, and check the flow. Then turn off the cold water faucet, and turn on the hot water faucet and check the flow. If the cold water flow fill slowly, then the problem is with the inlet valve.

It an easy part to obtain from an appliance supply house. To install disconnect the hoses to the back of the machine, and remove the back panel to get access to the valve. Should only take a couple of minutes to remove and install. Hope this helps you.

Hi .. I would first check the supply valve at the washer to be sure that it is open. if it is open , you can check the flow by shutting it off, removing the supply hose, opening the valve slowly and observing the flow. You might need a small bucket here. If you have water flow here at the washer supply valve, then the problem is inside the washer control.

If the pipes were installed properly, then the hot is on the left, cold on right.

Hook it up that way, then set it on the smallest load possible, with hot water setting only. If you have hot water filling the basin, you have it hooked up properly.

Won't fill with hot water


FIRST THING I WOULD CHECK ARE THE HOSES. TURN OFF THE HOSES AND REMOVE FROM WASHER ONE AT A TIME OPEN THE COLD INTO A BASIN TO FLUSH THE LINE OUT. DO THE SAME WITH THE HOT SIDE SEE WHAT KIND OF FLOW YOU ARE GETTING, IF THE FLOW IS NORMAL CHECK THE VALVES ON THE BACK OF WASHER THERE SHOULD BE SCREENS TO COLLECT THE DIRT FROM GETTING TO THE VALVES, IF ALL IS GOOD THE HOT WATER VALVE MAY BE HANGING UP OR NOT OPENING ALL THE WAY
