Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
I have a Kenmore Series 70 Heavy Duty top loading washing machine. It's 10+ years old. It recenly started making a loud whining sound when filling with cold water. Cold fills very slowly. Hot fills fine with no noise or flow issue. I've checked the screen filter and removed any debris, but issue still remains. Is there a valve or something that isn't opening correctly?
Yeah you need to replace the water valve. To get to it you need to remove the cabinet on the newer direct drive models, If yours has a rear access panel then you simply pop the top to get to the valve after removing the hoses. Fairly simple job. Here is a good website for direct drive coupling replacement . It shows you how to open the cabinet. http://repair2000.com/coupling.html
GVI 151 is the generic part that fix all belt drive models. Direct drive will need its own little water valve buy hay it ain't but 20 bucks.
For a better explanation post you model number in the comment box and I will research it further for you amigo.
