I have a Kenmore 110.20992991 top loader washing machine which is not filling quickly. When I start a cycle it fills using the detergent filler at the normal speed, then the detergent mixer stops and it slowly fills till reaching the correct level, then the cycle continues. After the waster stops coming from the detergent mixer, I hear a humming.

So with out knowing a lot about the internals of a washing machine, I am thinking that there might be a stuck value solenoid that isn't opening correctly, Does that sound reasonable? or should I be investigating the fill water level thingy first.

Thanks

You should first check to make sure that both hot and cold water lines are free flowing, you could have a frozen pipe, or sediment blockage at one of the valve screens
