Question about Washing Machines
I have a Kenmore 80 series washer. The water pressure is fine from the wall, and I think we need to replace the water inlet valve. How do we replace the water inlet valve?
First try the washer on cold only,then hot only,if one is slow and the other is not replace the valve,you must remove the 2 head screws one on each side(you might have to pop the plastic covers on each side to get to the screws,after removeing the screws flip up the head,you will see 2 spring clips one on each side,take a screw driver and pop them out,unplug the wire jack on the middle of the washer(that is the lid switch jack,now you can pull the back out just enough to get to the valve,the valve has 1 or 2 screws holding it on,you remove then on the outside,there are 4 wires on the inside to remove plus the fill hose,you can get a valve from your local appliance part store for around$10,or one on line at sears.com-parts,or repair clinic .com,the model number for your washer is inside the washer lid,let me know how you do-mike
