I ahve a Kenmore 300 series washing machine. It fills with water fine on a full cycle. If I try a short cycle or go to rinse or when it goes to rinse it humms but no water comes out. It drains and spins fine. I replaced the timer and got the same behavior. Does anyone know what could be the issue? Thanks

Will it fill on cold water only setting?

Could be trash or sand in the sump. Pressure works ok on full but maybe so much sand the pressure don't work on a low water load. Try blowing out the small rubber tube on the water level switch.

Bad valve or just a plugged screen. Some only rinse with cold water.

You flip up the console and expose the controls. On the back wall of the unit is a rubber tube running up to the water level switch from the tub down below.

Replace that water valve if you have checked both ends of the hose for debris.
