The washing machine fills with water and then does not agitate.

The washing machine fills with water and then does not agitate.

The washer fills with water and then does not agitate. It just sits there and then goes on to the spin cycle which works fine.

ANSWERS:

"If your Kenmore 110 Series Washing Machine refuses to spin or agitate during the wash cycle, see the Kenmore 110 Series Washing Machine Doesn’t Spin or Agitate problem page for possible causes and solutions.

Cause 1

Water Inlet Valve

The water inlet valve opens to allow water to enter the washing machine. If the water inlet valve is defective, the wash may fill slowly or not fill at all. The water inlet valve requires sufficient water pressure to function properly. First, check the water pressure to determine that it is adequate. If the water pressure is adequate, try cleaning the screens inside the water inlet valve hose connection ports. If the washer still fills slowly, replace the water inlet valve.

Cause 2

Low Water Pressure from House Supply

The home water pressure might be too low. The water inlet valve requires at least 20 psi to function properly. Check the water pressure to the valve to determine if it is sufficient."
