Washer takes forever to fill

Hi - We are having problems with the cold water on our washer. The washer takes forever to fill if I am running the cold water cycle only. The hot water runs in fine. The hose connection looks clear and we have cleaned the filter repeatedly. Help

Turn the cold water off and remove the hose at the machine. You will find a screen located there and you will need to clean it out.

Kenmore 90 Plus Series washer washer takes forever


is the cold water all the way on?

if so, the first thing to do would be to check the screens in the cold water fill hose and the screen in the cold side of the water valve on the back of the machine. if that is not the problem then replace the water valve.

(turn the water off before taking the hose loose)

When washer fills with cold water there is very little pressure and it takes forever to fill.


Turn off the cold water valve.
Remove the cold water hose from the washer. Clean out the filter screen on the water valve. Replace the hose and run the washer.

Kenmore 110 Top Load Washer-cold water fills extremely slowly


No it is probably the screen that is either in the end of the hose that attaches to the machine, and/or the screen is placed so that the cone is toward the machine instead of pointing away from the machine.
If the cone is pointing towards the machine any debris in the lines would collect and eventually fill the screen cone and slow or shut off water flow.

Yes remove the hose from where it connects to washer look inside water valve and remove plastic screen with needle nose pliers Without damaging it. Also make sure that it gets back in proper as the valve will be damaged without it.

Washer takes forever to fill


You said you checked the screen at the faucet end, did you check the one at the washer connection? Most washing machines have a wire mesh screen which sits inside the plastic connector that the hose connects to. You will have to use a small pointed object (like an ice pick) to remove the screen and clean it. Be careful not to damage it, I have ruined them on more than one occasion and had to replace it with a new one. If that is not the problem, there is likely a problem with the valve that is controlled by the hot/cold knob. I am not familiar with your washer brand, but mine required quite a bit of disassembly to get to the valve and switch, and in my opinion is a job better left to the local repair man.
