GE washing machine Toploader will not fill with water


see this causes and remedies: God bless you
Water Inlet Valve
First check the hoses that connect to the water inlet valve. Remove these completely there should be a screen in at least one end and maybe both ends. Clean these screens. Next check the back of the water inlet valve screens and remove and clean. If cleaning these out does not correct the problem you will need to check to make sure you have power going to the water inlet valve. Most top loaders will have 120 volts going to the valve. Check each solenoid on the valve. You will need to have the washer on and turned to a fill cycle when checking. If you have power and still no water replace the water inlet valve. No power replace the control. see the diagram attached

Control / Timer

This is less likely the problem but can fail. If you have no power going to the water inlet valve when selecting a fill cycle the timer/ control has failed and you will need to replace the timer.

I have a Kenmore washer that is just working with hot water.. If a turn off the hot water it does not work...


Check the cold water inlet hose to see if the screens are plugged. If the hose is ok, then the problem is with the cold water inlet valve itself. The water inlet valve controls both the hot and cold water. You can get the part at any appliance supply house. It the part where the water hoses connect. Just remove the back panel to get access to the valve. Hope this helps you.

I have a kenmore washing machine and the wash temp. does not work on cold or warm anymore, just hot even when it is on the warm setting.


The problem is the cold water solenoid on the water inlet valve. Replace your valve and the problem will go away. This is a very simple and inexpensive repair.

To replace the water inlet valve, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.

2. Turn off the water source and disconnect the fill hoses from the back of the washer.

3. Remove the toppanel of the washer by locating and removing the screws that hold the panel in place in the rear. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.

4. With the top panel removed, disconnect the dispenser hose(s) and electrical connections to the inlet valve.

5. Remove any mounting screws holding the valve in place and reinstall with a replacement valve.


Replacement parts can be purchased on line at any of the following websites:

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

All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list also include helpful exploded view diagrams of your washer to help with locating parts and assembly.

NOTE: Before you begin, check the sediment screens on the water inlet valve by turning off the water and disconnecting the fill hoses from the back of the washer. There are small screens in the hoses (sometimes) and the inlet valve. If you live in an area that has hard water, or uses well water, sediment, rust and scale and clog these screens. Sometimes a good cleaning with some distilled vinegar helps.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Water dispenser leaking.


The inlet valve will be located in the back of the ref. You have to remove the access panel and the valve will be mounted usually on the right hand side (if your looking at it from the back). To replace the valve you have to shut off the water at the saddle valve probably located in the basement. If you are replacing the valve then I would also replace the saddle valve at the same time its only about 10 bucks, because they usually gunk up w/ calcium deposits which lead to problems with the inlet valve of the ref.
Hope this helps _MJ_

My Kenmore HE3 is leaking within the washing compartment.


The problem is commonly caused by either a pressure switch malfunction, or a bad water inlet valve. The way you can tell is to leave the water turned on and unplug the washer. If the water continues to flow, the problem is the water inlet valve. If the water stops, the pressure switch.

To access either component, you need to remove the top panel of the washer. Locate the three screws that hold the top panel in place and remove. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off. The water inlet valve will be loacted in the left rear of the washer (as viewed from the front). The pressure switch will be in the rear on the right.

To replace the water inlet valve, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.

2. Turn off the water source and disconnect the fill hoses from the back of the washer.

3. With the top panel removed, disconnect the dispenser hose(s) and electrical connections to the valve.

4. Remove any mounting screws holding the valve in place and reinstall with a replacement valve.

The pressure switch is even easier. One connector plug and an air hose is the only thing attached to the switch. The switch is usually snapped in place along the interior cabinet wall with no screws holding it in place.

I hope I've given you enough ideas to work with in narrowing down the cause of your symptoms. This is generally a very simple repair, that isn't very expensive. If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore washer continully runs


Hello Friend, Your problem is easily solved. You need to replace the water inlet valve. It's easy to replace the water inlet valve on your machine. First, remove the two screws that hold control panel in place and tilt back exposing the two metal clips that hold the cabinet in place. You will see some wires plugged into the cabinet, just unplug them. There are two clips, one on each side. Just pop these clips off and lift cabinet slightly from back and tilt forward. At this point you will be able to completely remove the cabinet. Once you have cabinet removed just set it aside. Now, you will be able to gain access to the water inlet valve. Simply remove the hose and wires from valve and replace with new one. Re-install the cabinet, control panel etc. This should solve your problem. Happy to help, Tim.

How to access filter for kenmore elite front load washer


To access the pump drain filter, follow the instructions in the link provided:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

It is recommended by the manufacturer that if the pump still does not operate correctly after cleaning, to replace it. It does not take much to damage the motor and impeller of these small drain pumps.

The water fill problem is usually caused by a water inlet valve that is not shutting off properly. To access the fill valve solenoids follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer.
2. Remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, and then off.
3. The inlet valve is located at the left rear of the washer (as viewed from the front). This is where the fill hoses attach.
4. A resistance reading of the valve solenoids should be between 750 and 850 ohms.

If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water it is common for sediment and/or deposits to accumulate in the water inlet valve and cause problems with either filling or shutting off. you can attempt to remove the valve and clean it to see if this will correct the problem. Use white distilled vinegar to submerge the plastic portion of the valve in. DO NOT submerge the electrical contacts. Sometimes soaking in vinegar will dissolve and remove hard water deposits and sediment. If you wish to simply replace the valve, follow these steps:

1. Leave washer unplugged and remove electric connections to inlet valve.
2. Shut off water supply and remove fill hoses from the back of the washer.
3. Remove the dispenser hose from the inlet valve and remove mounting screw(s).
4. Install replacement valve in the reverse order of the steps provided.

Replacement parts can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com, or appliancepartspros.com. All three sites have great service and offer competitive pricing. I would recommend checking with all three sites for the best price. Use your model number to initiate your search.

F20 Error Message


"F20" is a water inlet problem. This indicates you have insufficient water supply for the washer. Whirlpool is the manufacturer of your washer and they recommend that you unplug the washer and check the following:


1. Check water faucets to ensure they are completely turned on.
2. Check the inlet hose screens where they connect to the washer. The screens can clog with sediment over time and require cleaning. This can be a problem if you live in an area with well water and/or hard water.
3. Ensure the inlet hoses are in good shape and are not kinked.

If you check all the common sense items first and the problem still persists, you need to check the water inlet valve. To access, you will need to remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws that hold it in place. Once the screws are removed, the panel slides back, then off. The water inlet valve is located in the left-rear of the washer just prior to the dispenser. Double the electrical connectors to make sure they are not corroded and double check the hoses that run from the inlet valve to ensure they are not kinked. A resistance check of the water inlet solenoids (with the connectors removed) should read about 800 ohms. If the solenoid readings are abnormal, replace the valve.

Please post back if you have questions or require further assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.
