6 months old. Now no water will fill drum! Works as normal but no water!
We received the washer and dryer set from my wife's mom who passed last month. She bought these about 6 months ago. The washer was fine a few days ago. Today wife went to wash clothes and noticed it just sat there and hummed. No water. I checked the water hoses and they were fine. Still now water. Unplugged the unit to reset and still... no water.
Any ideas or do I call someone? Not sure on warranty or we have no receipts.

Your washer is still under manufacturer's warranty which is one full year. If it has Kenmore's name on it you do not need proof of purchase. The only thing you need is your mother-in-law's home phone number at time of purchase because Sears keeps all their records based on phone numbers.

The last time I moved, my washer/dryer combo (Frigidaire) had the same issue for approximately 7 months before finding out all I needed to do was level the washer, and of course, make sure the faucet connected to the washer is turned to on position. Hope this is helpful.
There should be Bolts that run through the back panel that hold the whole tub in place when you move the machine around. Here is a Repair Manual for your Washer. It should help you out in finding the part numbers and where they go when you get them.
I'd suspect that the water level switch was malfunctioning. It's easily checked once the top of the washer has been removed. There is a tube running up to it from the tub. Water going up the tube changes the pressure on that switch and it reacts, opening to shut down the fill valves.
An obstruction in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!
Good luck !
