Hi:

I got an old Kenmore 60 Series free from a guy, who said it would work flawlessly, but after hooking it up, I realized it has a small problem.

The machine works, whenever set on hot, or warm wash; strangely enough, it will not wash while set on cold wash. It tries to fill, but at the same time the water goes out the hose and nothing further happens.  I can let it run like this all day, 'til there is no more water left in the Hudson. 

Set to warm as well as on hot it works without a problem.  It fills properly and starts the cycle as it is supposed to. Also worth mentioning is that there is a noticeable buzzing sound coming from behind the control panel on right top immediately after pulling the knob to start the warm or hot washing cycle. It doesn't do this sound while set to cold.

If you have any idea on how to fix this problem, I would very much appreciate, if you could share it with me.  After all, it works, and I am going to keep the machine with or without the cold cycle.

Thank you for your help.

-STEF

Do you mean the water exits the washer through the drain hose ?

I believe so...when I washed the other day on warm, it seemed like water ran through both hoses.  I am almost 100% positive... Thank you.

doesn't' make much sense, unless your Drain Hose is too low (doesn't rise-up before entering Drain)

Make sure that drain hose is not laying in a floor drain and if in a standpipe, should not be pushed all the way down to the bottom of the pipe

Thank you guys; problem solved following your advise.

I lifted the drain hose a bit, because it was pushed in all the way into the drain pipe.
Now cold water cycle works as well; I just tested it.

The only thing I don't get it is, what's the difference; why would it work with warm water. There ain't no logic for me...

Thanks a bunch!

When you start your washer on hot or warm it fills and agitates for awhile, then drains and fills with cold to rinse, but once the washwater is draining it fills the trap at the bottom of the standpipe and the level of water in the pipe is now above the drain hose, thus creating a vacuum that will syphon the next fill (hot,cold, or warm doesn't matter)

Sounds like rocket science to me... :)

Everything works now perfectly; thank you for the tip to lift the drain hose.
Apparently, it solved the problem. Thanks.
