Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I will start by saying your post indicates it is a Kenmore washer, however if you could post the complete model number and the approximate age I can speak directly about possible causes/remedies instead of generalizing.


Initially it sounds like a faulty inlet valve since most of these machines also have a thermistor built into them.
The one possibility you can rule out before replying is to insure the water hoses are connected properly, cold to cold and hot ot hot...I realize that seems obvious but I come across it so often it needs to be mentioned. I'll need to clarify the model number before detailing much of course. I'll need to watch for your reply before moving forward.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Kenmore HD Series 80 - hot water trickles in.


Pull the two screws at the bottom corners of the control panel. Pivot the panel up. Lever the two metal keepers underneath forward and up to remove them. Tilt the housing forward and pull it toward you to remove it. Make sure you unhook the lid switch wiring plug before you remove the housing.

Water inlet valve should all be one piece for hot and cold.

Kenmore 90 Series Washer : cold water fills at just a trickle:


your hot water goes through the water heater so contaminates settle in the heater. the cold does not, there is a screen inside the fill valve where the hose hooks to the valve on the machine. if this in not plugged then the fill valve will have to be replaced. because of the build up of contaminates..

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.

Kenmore 80 series model #110.26882503 fills slowly


For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Cold water trickle hot water runs good


turn off water valves at wall, disconnect the supply hoses from the washer. where the hoses connect to the washer, there is usually a stainless steel screen/strainer inline on both the hot and cold inlet. corrosion on the cold side is pretty common. Menards, Lowes Home Depot stores sell the replacment screeens.

Kenmore washing machine 80 series


check for kinks in the pipe or restrictions to the flow in the pipes before it gets to the washer, if all is ok then check the filter on the outside of the water connector on the machine for dirt

if you confirm all is clear and the flow of water is not the problem before the machine, replace the cold water solenoid
