Question about Whirlpool Inglis IP4400 Washer
Replaced the water inlet valve as suggested on this site but still the same problem
Did you check at the point where hose is connected to the faucet? Have you actually taken the hose where you connected it to the new valve and first ran it unconnected into a sink or a bucket to make sure you have a good, strong flow of cold water? A new valve isn't going to solve the problem if the supplied water pressure is low. Around here I have seen water softeners fail and allow a sludge of crystals and "goo" to clog the screens in the feed hoses on the supply side.
Fist and foremost, make sure that you have a good supply of cold water coming out of that hose. Don't make the mistake a lot of my customers make- They think if they turn on the faucet to the sink next to the washer and there's strong flow, this means everything is ok. The faucet has no screens in it. The hose to the washer does. There are screens of course at the water valve on the washer, but there are also screens in the hoses at the faucet where the washer hoses attach. Check there.
Hope this helps....
