During the initial filling of the machine, both the hot and cold water fill at a full rate.When it gets to the rinse cycle it takes about 45 minutes to fill.The water barely trickles in.The machine also makes a buzzing sound when it gets to that cycle.Do you think this may be a controler problem?? If it where the valve or screens it wouldn't fill normal in the wash cycle, Would it??If it is a control problem what part would I need to replace the whole controller??Dial assembly??

Re: Washer fills slow only in the rinse cycle
The first thing I would do is remove the hoses from the inlet valve and make sure the screens are not clogged in the valve. On some models the valve will compensate on fill opening both hot and cold. It will not do this on cold rinse. Before ordering any controls check this out first. If it's still the same I tend to believe it's a valve problem. The buzzing you are hearing is the valve. Catriver, post back.
I also am having that problem with filling on rinse cycle,of stackable kenmore...I just replaced the module as I was having a leaking problem.repair man said maybe check for voltage?
I dont have a tester..could module be bad?

In the rinse cycle it will use cold only to rinse with.
You need to see how fast the water is going into the machine on rinse
Things that can effect slow fill, low water pressure, Faulty cold valve
water hose & valve filters clogged, Kinked hose
When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it. Good luck!
while the unit is filling in the warm cycle. reach behind and shut off the hot water tap.I bet the water flow stops filling, if so, you would need to change the inlet valve on the machine. You see, in warm, if the cold is not filling, you still hear the hot filling and the unit will advance. The rinse cycles are mostly "cold" only. if the valve is not opening it will not allow it to advance from the rinse section on the board.
Check each temperature during initial wash fill. Set to hot water, is hot water coming out? Set to cold water, is cold water coming out? The rinse cycle is cold only. If cold water is not working machine will just stop at rinse.
If cold water not working: Disconnect cold water hose from machine. Inspect the filter screen on the cold water connection. DO NOT REMOVE SCREEN. If full of debris, use a spray bottle with a hard spray to remove debris. If unable to remove or cold is still not working, replace valve.
