Question and Answers

Q:

why does my washer not fill with water? 11016922501 Kenmore Residential washer

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

Sorry to hear that the replacement inlet valve didn't solve the issue, I know how frustrating it is to invest money into the unit and not have it solve the issue. 

You did not state if you hear the water valve humming or not. Did you confirm a good water flow before connecting the water supply to the water inlet valve?

I recommend turning the timer very slowly until the dishwasher starts running and then do not turn the timer any further. If you turn the timer to quickly and far you will pass up the timer increment where it would fill.

In order for the water valve to open it needs to have 120 volts applied to it. If voltage is not present to the water inlet valve it's not going to energize and open to allow water to enter. I recommend checking the float switch operation. If the float is stuck up or if the float switch is not closing it is not going to fill.

If the water valve is not the problem then that leaves the water level switch/sensor as the potential cause of this problem. The water level switch/sensor can be accessed by removing the top panel. This part is also called a pressure switch. There is a hose that connects to the switch and tub that can sometimes be kinked or disconnected, and could also cause this issue. I would explore that next if you rule out power source to the inlet valve. 

Hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issue with your washer. The water level switch is certainly a place to start but I suspect the problem is with the water valve. First unplug the washer and then access the water level switch. It is the easiest to check. There are three wires to be concerned with. The water level switch should have a violet, pink and tan wire on it. During a fill the water level switch will be closed between the violet and pink wire for fill. When it reaches the right level then the switch closes the violet to pink and switches to violet to tan to agitate. There is no setting on the water level switch to enable this washer to fill and agitate at the same time. If you have small piece of insulated wire then this can be checked. Unplug the washer and remove the wires from the water level switch. With a small piece of insulated wire you can join the violet and pink wires. The washer should only fill with no agitation at all. You can also join the violet and tan wires and the washer should only agitate with no fill at all. The image below will help you raise the console to access the water level switch. Remember to unplug the washer first.  If you do not feel comfortable doing this yourself, just click on this link to schedule service: Sears Home Services .  I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I would like a copy of these illistrated instructions. The switch on my washer doesn't need replacement just an adjustment. Every so often we have to push on the lid to engage the switch. So I am assuming if I can access the switch I can bend something just a little to allow the door to properly engage the switch. I also need to know how to actually get to the switch which is inside the control panel. Thank you, Michael

Michael, I posted the instructions in the image below. Just click on the image to enlarge it. I also recommend checking the screws in the lid. If the screws are loose, the hinge does not activate the switch. Please reply below with more details and a model number if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark.
