    My Kenmore Heavy Duty 70 Series will not operate on "WARM COLD," "HOT COLD," or "HOT WARM." There are no problems with the hot water supply. It's gotta be either the solenoid which actuates the hot water valve, or the thermostat. Please help! Its either fix it, or buy a new one.

All the symptoms described are typical of a water inlet valve that has either become clogged with sediment or has a solenoid failure. You can elect to replace the water inlet valve, or attempt to clean. Cleaning requires shutting off the water source and disconnecting the inlet hoses. Check the sediment screens in the water inlet valve and clean with cotton swabs and distilled vinger. Place the hoses in the wash tub and turn on the water supply to make sure the hoses are clog free. Sometimes a good cleaning can help. However, the majority of the cases involve replacing the valve. The following link explains how:

I hope this information is helpful. Anyone with questions are encouraged to post back and let me know.

My Sears series 80 washer fills till it is overflowing and doesnt shut off water flow, it was overflowing onto floor this morning, it is full to the rim now, and wont drain or do anything when it is turned...

The usual arrangement is there are 2 electrical water inlet valves, one for Hot and 1 for Cold. These valves are turned on by the timer, and remain on until the water level switch turns them on, and allows the washer to then run. It sounds like this water level switch is bad. This switch should be in the panel above the top of the washer, and has a rubber/plastic tube that goes toward the washer drum. It is also possible that the rubber tube is off or blocked. (if the water inlet valve is stuck open, turning the washer off will NOT stop the water).

Good Luck,

If your washer just keeps filling it and the pressure valve is not to blame I would suggest that your tube coming off of the pressure valve might be blocked or partially blocked. If you have hard water where you live try taking off that line (it just pulls off fairly easy) and squirt some CLR into the tube. A good way to check to see if there is any restriction is when you take off that tube. You should be able to blow though it very easily.

I would have thought it was the board too! does it beep when it stops? if it does then it should be putting up a fault row of lights..CHeck that you have both the hot & cold hoses connected & turned on at the taps.even if you are not useing hot water to wash with,turn them both on anyway.Some machines require this regardless of wether you are useing hot.The reason for this is F&P have built into their machines to give a little squirt of hot water to maintain a certain level of cold wash.Make sure also that hot hose is going to hot valve & cold to cold.

Water will not full you hear the motor going but water doesnt come out checked and water is on if you turn knob from cold to hot and back water will flow for a little then stop

Sounds like a faulty water inlet valve solenoid. The solenoids can be tested for continuity using a multimeter or ohm meter. If either solenoid has no continuity, it is defective and the water inlet valve assembly will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Washer- Hot water wont stop flowing

you will have to replace the multi valve inside the washer where the lines come in, not too hard if you can use tools and find all the hold own bolts/ screws. the part can be a little pricey so you may want to take it to a repair shop. make sure that you UNPLUG first!
