Question about Washing Machines
My kitchen aid washer KAWE450V purchased 1990 will not turn on or call for water. i replaced a solenoid a couple of years back - but cant rememeber how to test for this.
The float could be stuck and thinks it has water(throw a bunch of water into it and it might free itself up.
do you have power to the unit??????
is the filter at the base clean???

Your problem is most likely the fill solenoids.
Often, grit, sand and other 'stuff' in your water supply will cause the solenoids to stick open.
To repair, pull the washer away from the wall, so you can access the area where your water hoses attach to the washing machine. Turn the water off.
Disconnect the water hoses, allowing them to drain into a bucker. Identify the screws that go from the back of the washer into the item that the hoses attach to. Remove those screws and disconnect the hose(s) that go into the body of the washer. Remove the solenoid unit. Purchase a new solenoid.
Reverse the removal procedure.
Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
