I have a Kenmore 80 Series clothes washer probably 18 years old. The cold water setting does not work properly. Only a trickle of cold water is present. Takes forever to fill. The hot water is fine. The warm setting comes out hot only. It worked fine on my first load today but not the second load. Please help.

Has the washer been moved?

Possibly by someone trying to retrieve a sock behind it. Check to insure the hose is not kinked.

Next try turning off and on the cold water valve.

How accessible is the back of the washer and the hoses?

As you have exceeded most manufacturers recommendations of how long the hoses will last unless you have the stainless steel ones.

** Kenmore 80 Series clothes washer **

I'm afraid that is not enough information to identify the appliance in question. What is needed is its exact model number ("80 Series" isn't it).

You can find tips for locating the model number identification tag on your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my web site linked below.

** The cold water setting does not work properly. Only a trickle of cold water is present. **

Has anyone checked for blocked sediment screens in the fill hose ends and at the water valve itself?
