SOURCE: water filling

Before you replace the water valve itself, take the hot water hose off and inspect the screen at the valve inlet. There could be a lot of grit restricting it. If the screen is clear, than I would be in agreement with you that it is the valve itslef..hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Hot water is filling up washer very slow

There is a screen in the valve where the hose hooks on. It could be getting plugged up. turn off the water and pull off the hose to see if it's full of particles. I can sometimes clean it out by putting a bucket under the water inlet and spaying a little water from the hose into the opening. If not you may need a new valve.

Yes, the only other thing I would do and you may have done this is to put the hose directly over in the washer tub and turn the water on to check the flow. If that's good then replace the water valve.

SOURCE: Washer Fills HOT WATER ONLY

If you checked the screens at the water inlet valve and they were not clogged, then you probably have a defective water inlet valve and will have to replace it. Hope this helped.

Good day,
The only test on the water valve itself, is to replace it. The term is
"replace with a know good part", but may or may not work.
It is very possible you mght need a plumber to install a riser on the hot water line somewhere betwen the tank and the line going into the washer. The riser creates an air cushion in the line that is used on many issues much as you described.
It could well be best to call a few quality plumbing companies, to see if they have dealt with that issue.

Hot water hose pulsates when washer is filling up in warm setting.


It's the pressure from the hot water supply to your machine, if you fill from hot water tap, turn tap down a little to reduce the water flow. Should be OK then

Pulsation water lines


What you are experiencing is known as "water hammer" It is caused when flowing water under pressure is turned off rapidly. The pipes then shake from the shock of the shutoff. Properly routed and secured water lines are less prone to this anomaly. You can install water hammer arrestors on the washer supply lines. They can be purchased at almost any hardware store or home center. Water hammers can cause pipe joints to fail and should be avoided if possible. The one below connects directly to the washer supply fitting. You then connect the washer hose to it. You'd need one for the hot and another for the cold line.

I have pulsing water in my home, I have tried everything to resolve this problem, can you help


Do you have a water pump and live in the country? I would check the water pump first. If not, check your water lines for clogs. You may need to replace the water lines inside the house. Depending on where you live, they may be clogged with lime. Otherwise, I would check with your city or village to see if there's a problem with the city's water.

During the water fill cycle there is not a steady flow of water entering the machine when on a HOT or Warm cycle.The water is Pulsating through the hoses.Is this normal for a wtw 5600 whirlpool washer???...


Hi Charlie in Philly,

Yes it is normal to answer your question in short. However, since it may not be how your old machine operated or something you are not accustomed to, I'll explain in brief.

Most automatic washer made today have a "thermistor" built into the fill valve, or in series with the fill line from the valve. As a result you may notice either the cold or hot pulsing on and off, and this is done as the thermistor senses the water temperature to attain the desired water for the selected cycle. It also makes the washer more energy efficient and more well balanced from a functional stand point, i.e. it will only call for the desired amount of hot water as opposed to the older washer's which would simply fill at the rate at which the home water supply could provide, whether hot/warm or cold selected.

Hope this answer's your question and enlighten's you to the "why" as well.

Thank you for visiting "fixya" today. If you found this solution helpful please take a second and rate it or comment on the expert reply.

Let me know if I can assist you further and good luck with your new washer.

Displaying LE


Lg has a water pulsator which rotates while filling up with water. If pulsator is faulty, you will get this LE indication. Pulsator is found on bottom left hand side of unit when cover is removed. 2 clear water pipes are connected to it and there is a small plug in that has 2 wires. Remove plug in first then remove from the pipes.

Pulsating water in the hot water cycle


id be curious as to the age of this machine, because the newer models have what teh call adaptive water temp sensors that will optimize the water temp automatically.. your hot water may be "too hot" and your cold can be "too cold" and the valve corrects to a preset temp. this sounds like whats happening

Kenmore 90 series Water pressure turning up and down


it will switch from hot to cold and back and forth trying to regulate the temp. You probrbly have more pressure in your cold water line than your hot or vise versa. This will cause it to seem to pulse. Dave www.washermd.com
