My wash machine does not let water in

A solenoid valve is used to allow water to enter the machine at different times of the cycle. The home's shut off valves above the hoses must be on. The water may not flow if the hose is clogged, the filter at the input to the washer is clogged, the solenoid has failed, electronic control for the solenoid has failed, or a door switch - or other sensor - has failed. Shut the water valve off and remove the hoses from the washer - note which is hot and cold. Direct the hoses into the wash tub of the washer. Open the shut off valve briefly. Water should come out of both of the hoses at about the same rate. If not disconnect hose from the valve for cleaning or replacement. Then check the hose connection on the washer - remove and clean or replace any filter found. Once cleared or replaced - reconnect hot to hot and cold to cold and try filling again. If still not working, you'll need to check for operating voltage at the solenoid when it should be open. If voltage present and not letting water in - replace the solenoid. If voltage not present - it could be a sensor, control, etc. These appliances operate at deadly voltages. Please, do not attempt if you're not sure how to perform the work, use the tools and meters or know what you're doing. Good luck!

How do I find the lid sensor switch on a Kenmore 500 washing machine

If the washing machine stops in the middle of the cycle then it is very unlikely the lid switch is involved. It could be a number of reasons. Best to drain the washing machine and repeat the cycle a few times to check if it happens at the same point. Could be a problem with the timer or pressure switch. You can locate all the parts and their location in this site. I hope I have the correct model for your washing machine. KENMORE Residential Washer Parts Model 11029522800

I have a Kenmore 500 series top load washer. It will fill but the motor just hums in all the cycles. Stops humming when the door is opened so the switch is good. The gears on the timer feel and sound

After removing the transmission, I turned the input shaft and could watch the output shift twist, in one direction its should be turning as in the spin mode, and the other direction the output shaft should turn back and forth as in the agitate mode. I could see the trans was not turning in the spin mode. I replaced the tranmsission ($175) and it fixed the problem.

Kenmore model 253.68232800.......is there a regular on-off switch ?

No there is no on/off switch on this refrigerator. The parts diagrams are available here: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model/2fns2ul82o-000582/kenmore-25368232800-top-mount-refrigerator-parts . There is a knob that controls how much cold air flows into the refrigerator by opening and closing the damper. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

Kenmore Series 400 Triple Action Agitator Washer restarts cycle after finishing

We have this exact problem. The repair guy told us it would be over $400 to replace the whole control panel. So for now we set a timer for 1 hour and if you are standing at the washer when it finishes you can open the door to prevent it from restarting. Until we get a new washer this is what we will do.

Kenmore elite 22952 keeps filling til overflows, no matter what level setting

Inside the case there is a water level switch. It is round, has 2 wires to a number of connectors and a tube that goes down to the drum. As the water goes in, the water level rises in the tube and causes the pressure to operate the switch and turn the water off. If the machine was tilted or laid flat with the transit bolts not being in place, it may have caused the pipe to come off. The usually look like this. https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Kenmore+110+Series+Washing+Machine+Water+Level+Sensor+Replacement/11037 or this https://www.searspartsdirect.com/diy/repair-guide/how-to-replace-the-water-level-pressure-switch-on-a-direct-drive-top-load-washer They are easy enough to change, but expensive. Check the pipe hasn't come off first. https://www.google.com/search?q=kenmore+elite+22952+water+level+sensor+replace ..
