Hoping someone can help my Kenmore 110 series washer model number 110.20842990 will only buzz when I start a load. If I move the dial to rinse it will fill with rinse water and spin. I also noticed that even though I had it set to the cold cold setting the rinse water was coming out hot. Anyone have an idea of what the problem could be? TIA!

Corrected model number

That model number is not pulling up as good, please recheck it.

This is pulling up as good--->110.20842990 are you sure that "8" is not a "2".

What happens if you put the machine on HOT water? Does it come out COLD?

Hi Jake, You correct it's a 2 not an 8. Sorry was typing with a 5 month old in my hands! Now again no water coming out at beginning of wash but still coming out at rinse. When I have it on the hot/cold setting the rinse is hot.

Thanks!

When you first start the machine in the wash cycle--->What happens if you put the machine on COLD/COLD water? Does it come out COLD or HOT or just BUZZES?

If it just BUZZES and both HOT and COLD water supply lines are OPEN to the machine and you have good water pressure to the machine, you will need a multimeter to check for 120 volts on the COLD side water inlet valve.

Here's the water inlet valve for your model:
Water Inlet Valve 285805


Video Included in part link on how to access it.:)

Well my husband came home and figured it out. We just moved and he had put the hoses on wrong. Thanks!

I was thinking that might be the case.:)

Glad that was all it was!
