Why won't my Kenmore 800 washer fill up with water?

I have a Kenmore Model 800 washer. It will not fill up with water. It is 2 weeks old and worked fine yesterday. The screen not blocked. It doesn't register that there are clothes in it to start the auto fill (auto sensor?).

The washer should initially fill to a level 8 holes up from the bottom of the basket even if it is empty. If the washer is not filling at all, then you could have a failed load sense control. You could also have a number of other failures that could cause this problem.

With the fill hoses disconnected from the back of the washer, place the ends of the hoses in a bucket and turn on the supply faucets briefly to check for proper pressure and flow from the water fill hoses. If the water supply is okay, then I recommend calling Sears for warranty service at 1-800-4MY-HOME (1-800-469-4663).

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

Kenmore 800 modle# 11029822800 wont fill with water but will spin. The problem is the load or fill sensor switch most likley and not the inlet water valve. Sears does not keep any parts in stock so you have to mail order them. However since whirlpool makes Kenmore I got the whirlpool part # W10292584 for the load/fill sensor/switch that was in stock form Servall Appliance Parts with a life time warranty for $75.00 214-352-7582 for Dallas office.

Kenmore 800 modle# 11029822800 wont fill with water but will spin. The problem is most likley the load/fill sensor switch $75.00 and not the inlet water valve $30.00. Sears does not keep any parts in stock so you have to mail order them. However since Kenmore and the load/fill switch part # W10177795 are made by Whirlpool and I called and got the whirlpool part # W10292584 for the load/fill sensor/switch it was in stock form Servall Appliance Parts with a life time warranty for $75.00 214-352-7582 for Dallas office. great video on Youtube on how to open the top load Kenmore washer. watch it and it will save you time. Also I disconnected the lid switch and used a coat hanger to make a jumper then wraped it with electrial tape. my wife hated that when she opended the lid it would stop filling with water!
