You're probably talking about a top loader. Rarely do you have to change water valves in front loaders because they're too new. You go to the back of the machine. Take off all the screws on the back neck and on the top if they're there. There's your valves. NO POWER . Make sure your hose is disconnected and the water valves are turned off Unscrew, disconnect connectors. (doesn't matter which way they go back.)
Replace and reverse.

F8E4Low water flowThe flow meter detects a long fill time. Make sure that both water supply valves behind the washer are fully open. In winter, check the fill lines for freezing. Check the drain system for a siphon problem. If the water valve assembly is defective, replace it. If water flows normally, replace the flow meter.

F9E1Long drainRemove excess suds; the washer can't drain excessively sudsy water. Check your house drain system for a clog. Check the drain hose for kinks or clogs. Replace the drain pump if defective. If the washer drains properly, replace the water level pressure switch because it isn't accurately detecting the water level.

Water not entering washer


Hi

If the washer won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly. Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Washer machine filled up with water all night with door open? I have a mess of water in my basement and no water pressure.


If water comes into washer with no power to it and water valves are turned on then you have a bad water inlet valve in washer. Try unplugging washer and turn on water valves see if water comes in note may be small amount (but it does add up if it runs all night) if it does your water valve is bad..Replace.Sometimes the vales can stick open a little it is caused by buildup inside valves from minerals and other items in water....Note make sure if you replace valve that you have sediment screens in your water inlet lines on washer that will prevent items in water getting stuck in valves and keeping them open..If you need more help please ask if I helped you please vote Thanks and good luck

My front loading washer always fills with water when i am not using it


It sounds like one of the automatic water fill valves in the machine is leaking water when washer is off and the valves are closed. There are two manual water supply valves at the wall behind the washer, one for hot water and one for cold. Close the manual hot water supply valve and allow the washer to sit and see if it fills with water. If it does fill, then the cold water automatic fill valve is leaking. If not, then open the hot water manual supply valve and close the cold water manual supply valve. Allow the washer to sit again and see if it fills. If it does then the hot water automatic fill valve is leaking. Replace the leaking valve in your washer. You can order the new valve online using washer brand and model number on a appliance parts web store, or maybe even find it at a local appliance parts store.

Whirpool Ultimate Care II washer - drips


Your water inlet valve is leaking through. Turn off the water. Remove the hoses from the washer. Clean the sediment screens in the water valve and replace the hose.
If that does not solve the leak through problem,the water inlet valve will have to be replaced.
Use the attached video to show how to access the inside of the washer in the event the water valve needs replacing.

Hot water doesn't work


Disconnect the hot water hose from the washer, put the hose over in the washer and run some water to make sure you don't have a plumbing problem. Look inside the valve where the water connects to the washer, there should be a screen that may need cleaning.

If everything looks and works good to this point then you will need a meter to see if power is getting to the water valve and to check the hot water solenoid on the water valve. No power to the water valve, then replace the water select switch. Bad solenoid, then replace the water valve.

When washer finishes there is a dripping of water inside unit


What has happened is you have sand in your water valve from your water. This pluggs the water valve and also sticks it open so when the water valve shuts of there is still a small trickle of water coming through the washer. Replace the water and it will fix the problem (no way of cleaning the inside of the valve.) Replace water valve.
