Kenmore Laundry Center
« on: January 18, 2014, 12:27:24 PM »
I installed the water hoses to my Kenmore Model# 417.94812301 and when I turned the water on the cold water hose sprayed back from the coupling behind the threaded cap making me think that there is something blocking the flow of water.

Sounds like you have a bad hose or cross threaded the water valve or forgot to install hose washer.Theses hoses are better than stainless hoses.http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-fill-hose-8212487rp-ap3885720.html At least thats what Whirlpool says.

Everything dab said is correct. If the hose and connection look Ok, is it possible for the valve to have frozen? They will get a split(which can be hard to see)and spray water.

  It's the job of the washer water inlet valve to block the flow of water when washer is off or operating in other than fill or spray. If it was cross threaded or missing the rubber washer, it would leak from around the threads. If it's leaking behind the threaded hose fitting, the hose fitting is bad. Replace the hose or install a new fitting on it.
