SOURCE: Replacing water inlet valve

First of all, UNPLUG the washer before attempting any repairs, and follow these steps:

1. You will need to remove the washer top panel by loosening the three screws in the back. With the screws removed, the panel slides back, then off.
2. Turn off the water supply valves and disconnect the water inlet hoses.
3. The inlet valve should be very simple to replace at this point. Disconnect the electrical connections and the hose(s) leading from the valve to the dispenser.
4. There should be a a mounting screw holding the inlet valve to the back panel. Remove the old inlet valve and install the new valve in the reverse order of the steps I just provided.

This is should be a fairly straight forward repair that anyone can accomplish without the assistance of a repairman. If you get confused along the way, please post back and let me know. i hope this answers your questions.

Sounds like a sticking water level switch.
Locate thin plastic or rubber hose going from the bottom of the washer to the water leel switch at the top, remove and clean hose and the chamber at the bottom where the hose fits.

Very slow water fill water to washer is ok screens look ok


This problem is commonly attributed to a water inlet valve (also known as a "mixing valve") that is going bad. The valve is what the inlet hoses connect to on the back of the washer. If the sediment screens appear okay, chances are the valve may be clogged or the solenoids are failing.

If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, the inlet valve and/or fill hose sediment screens can become clogged with sediment, calcified deposits and rust resulting in a restriction of water flow. You can try cleaning the sediment screens and the water inlet valve in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and hot water to see if you can dissolve any sediment or deposits. Removing the valve from the washer and allowing it to soak in the solution for about 30 minutes, then flushing it with clean water can sometimes return an inlet valve to normal operation. If cleaning the valve does not work, however, you will need to replace it. The following link explains how:

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices will vary between sites so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with locating and properly identifing any parts you may need. If the model number you listed this question under is correct, the Water Inlet Valve number is 285805 and is listed as item 18 under the "Controls and Rear Panel" parts listing. The average price is less than $20.


If you have any questions, or if your model number is different, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

The ice maker does no work


Hello,

Unplug the refrigerator.
Remove the icemaker's front cover by unscrewing or prying it off as needed (refer to the owner's manual for specifics).
Remove the ice bin, shelves, and vertical partition.
Remove remaining screws, disconnect the icemaker wires from the harness connector or socket, and remove the unit from the freezer.
Remove the back access panel (see Fixing a Refrigerator) and any fasteners that hold the inlet valve to the refrigerator.
Service the water inlet valve:

Turn off the water supply at the saddle valve on the pipe.
Disconnect the inlet valve from the refrigerator (see above).
Unscrew the tubes from the valve, letting excess water drain into a bowl.
Unplug the wires from the valve.
Use a multimeter on RX10 (resistance times 10) to probe both terminals on the valve solenoid. An infinite reading means the valve solenoid is bad; a reading of 1,000 ohms or less means it is probably good.
Remove the plate and filter screen from the water inlet. Wash a clogged screen with a toothbrush under running water. Replace the screen if it is rusted or damaged.

Hope this helpout, Good luck

Washing Machine always floods after turning on water. There's a leak when i turn on the water.


Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. Make sure the screens are there and that they are clear of rust or debris. The solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. If this not where the leak is occurring, please let me know. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Washer has been working fine for sevral years.I started a load when it went into rinse cycle it stopped and will not run at all. this is a Kenmore extra large capacity model no. 110.14102300


If no water entered the machine at the rinse cycle, then I would check for a cold water supply problem, since cold water is what is used in the rinse. Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. Pay particular attention to the cold water side. Next, check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Check this and if you need additional assistance let me know. I am working with limited info. For instance, can you advance the cycle manually and make the machine operate? Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Washer shuts off. We start it, it shuts off. We start it again, shuts back off. Sometimes it runs, sometimes it doesn't.

I have an Inglis Soundblock II Dishwasher. The


It could be that the machine isn't filling properly with water- which could be a faulty or clogged water inlet valve. I'm not quite familiar with Inglis, but if you still have the manual, check and see if there is a way to adjust the amount of time the water valve stays open at the beginning of the cycle.

Or just add a liter or so of water at the beginning of a cycle and see if that helps- but make sure you add it after you hear the soap dispenser open- the beginning of most wash cycles is a quick rinse cycle, so any water you add will only be in there for a couple minutes before the machine drains and attempts to refill.

The ice maker is not working. No water is running to it.


Hello,

If I got the issue correct the ice maker is not working and no water runs into the ice maker. Please try the following steps so that the issue could be resolved.

Disassemble an icemaker:
  1. Unplug the refrigerator.
  2. Remove the icemaker's front cover by unscrewing or prying it off as needed (refer to the owner's manual for specifics).
  3. Remove the ice bin, shelves, and vertical partition.
  4. Remove remaining screws, disconnect the icemaker wires from the harness connector or socket, and remove the unit from the freezer.
  5. Remove the back access panel (see Fixing a Refrigerator) and any fasteners that hold the inlet valve to the refrigerator.

  2. Disconnect the inlet valve from the refrigerator (see above).
  3. Unscrew the tubes from the valve, letting excess water drain into a bowl.
  4. Unplug the wires from the valve.
  5. Use a multimeter on RX10 (resistance times 10) to probe both terminals on the valve solenoid. An infinite reading means the valve solenoid is bad; a reading of 1,000 ohms or less means it is probably good.
  6. Remove the plate and filter screen from the water inlet. Wash a clogged screen with a toothbrush under running water. Replace the screen if it is rusted or damaged.
Hope this resolution would fix the issue.
