Make sure the machine is switched off.

Unscrew the hose fitting from the back of the machine look into the hole and you should be able to see a cone filter

You should be able to pull out the plastic filter which is there to catch debris

Wash it out under a tap

Re-fit and re-secure the hose
Use a pair of long nosed pliers to gently remove it

Recently had a sediment problem with our well, is there another place to clean out sediment other than the screens at the hot & cold water hose connections on a whirlpool duet washer?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,
1. Drain and Flush your HOT water heater. This bugger will keep supplying sediment for weeks!
2. There can be hose screens installed at the wall connection also. Remove the hoses and check for hose screens.
3. Check the Inlet screens again.
4. Of you have a pressure tank.. Drain and purge (another source of debris)
Other than that as far a water supply those are the only places to be concerned about. Once your sure you have clean water.... re-check you inlet and hose screens once a week for a while as sediment will migrate through plumbing for extended periods depending on the type of sediment.
The screens can repeatedly clog for some time due to sediment.

If you experience a symptom that your machine will fill when off or leak water by constantly the debris has blocked open the inlet water valve needle at the diaphragm.
- You can sometimes back flush this by first removing BOTH inlet water screens from the water valve and reconnecting the hoses.
- Only connect ONE hose to the wall and turn on the water to the connected hose while placing the other hose in a bucket.
- Select WARM wash and let water flow into bucket. Tap the hose connections with the HANDLE of a hammer or screwdriver in an attempt to loosen debris.
- Reverse hose connections and repeat.

RE-install the inlet screens in the water valve and return the machine to normal use.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Kenmore heavy duty 60 series The wash cycle barely letting water out and will spin and drain but not fill and wash


From the symptoms you have described, it sounds like you may have a water inlet valve (also known as a fill valve) that has become clogged with sediment and has started to fail. Before assuming the valve to bad, however, here's a few items to check:

1. Check to make sure the water taps are turned all the way on (If I'm insulting your intelligence, I apologize. But, you wouldn't believe how many times I've discovered this problem).

2. Make sure the fill hoses are not kinked, causing the water flow to be restricted.

3. Turn off the water and remove the fill hoses from the back of the washer. Check the sediment screens in the ends of the hoses (if equipped - some hoses have them, some don't) and check the sediment screens on the fill ports on the back of the washer. If clogged with sediment or hard water deposits, clean with a a 50/50 solution of hot water and distilled vinegar.

If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, it is common for the sediment screens to become clogged over time. Sometimes a good cleaning can restore the water flow. However, if the water flow still isn't desirable, the valve may need to be replaced. The following link explains how to access and replace the valve, if required:

Very slow water fill water to washer is ok screens look ok


This problem is commonly attributed to a water inlet valve (also known as a "mixing valve") that is going bad. The valve is what the inlet hoses connect to on the back of the washer. If the sediment screens appear okay, chances are the valve may be clogged or the solenoids are failing.

If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, the inlet valve and/or fill hose sediment screens can become clogged with sediment, calcified deposits and rust resulting in a restriction of water flow. You can try cleaning the sediment screens and the water inlet valve in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and hot water to see if you can dissolve any sediment or deposits. Removing the valve from the washer and allowing it to soak in the solution for about 30 minutes, then flushing it with clean water can sometimes return an inlet valve to normal operation. If cleaning the valve does not work, however, you will need to replace it. The following link explains how:

Rinse cycle water flow slow


This problem is commonly attributed to a water inlet valve (also known as a "mixing valve") that is going bad. The water may appear to flow better during the intial fill cycle, because BOTH solenoids (HOT and COLD) are typically used during the initial FILL cycle. However, nearly all washers use a cold water RINSE. This means only one solenoid is energeized during the rinse cycle which reduces the water volume even more.

If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, the inlet valve and/or fill hose sediment screens can become clogged with sediment, calcified deposits and rust resulting in a restriction of water flow. You can try cleaning the sediment screens and the water inlet valve in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and hot water to see if you can dissolve any sediment or deposits. Removing the valve from the washer and allowing it to soak in the solution for about 30 minutes, then flushing it with clean water can sometimes return an inlet valve to normal operation.

This problem is commonly attributed to a water inlet valve that has become clogged with sediment, or kinked/clogged fill hoses.

If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, it is common that have calcified deposits, rust or sediment build up in the lines over time. You can attempt to clean the sediment screens in the hoses (if your hoses have them) and/or the inlet valve on the back of the washer. Cleaning with a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and hot water can often restore normal flow. If this does not work, however, the valve needs ot be replaced.

Rinse on Whirlpool LSQ8000


This is commonly caused by a water inlet valve that has become clogged with sediment over time. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you are using well water, the inlet valve sediment screens and/or the fill hose screens can become clogged with calcium or rust sediment. You can check the sediment screens and clean them with a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and hot water to dissolve any sediment and flush with hot water. However, if the water flow is still weak, you may need to replace the inlet valve. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575881-replacing_water_inlet_valve_on_whirlpool

You can also refer to this link to remove the valve and allow it to soak in some sediment dissolving solution, such as the distilled vinegar I mentioned, or by using a commerical solution (such as CLR). If you decide to remove the valve and try this, only submerge the valve ports. Do not submerge the solenoid electrical connections.

CAUTION: Some of these commerical solutions give off strong vapors and odors. Use in a well ventilated area.

If you are going to go the route of removing the valve, however, it may make better sense to simply replace it, rather than running the chance of having to repeat these steps again, if cleaning doesn't work.

Hot water comes out very slowly to fill washer hot water shots out then stops and keeps doing this till filled.


This problem is commonly attributed to defective solenoid on the water inlet valve. Try removing the inlet hoses and checking the sediment screens in the valve for sediment build up first. Check the hoses as well. They often have restrictor screens in the ends. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, it is common to experience calcified deposits or sediment build up. You can use a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and hot water to clean. If cleaning does not solve the problem , you will need to remove the inlet valve.

I can't get the cold water to fill the tub/rinse. the hot works.


Your problem is either a clogged COLD fill valve or a bad water fill valve. Turn the water off. Remove the COLD hose from the WASHER. Check the filter screen inside the valve for sediment. If you find sediment,remove the screen and clean it. Replace the screen and turn the water back on. If you do not find sediment on the screen,replace the water valve.

Why is my washer slow filling up with water


Slow fill problems can usually be attributed to a clogged or defective water inlet valve (also known as a mixing valve). If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you are using well water, there's a good chance you have sediment or rust build up in the water inlet valve. Sometimes a good cleaning is all that takes to correct this problem. The inlet valve is located where the fill hoses are connected. Accessing it will depend upon the make and model of you washer. Since you posted no model number, the instructions I'm providing are generic in nature. If you wish to clean the valve, do the following:

1. Unplug the washer and turn off the water supply at the taps.
2. Disconnect the fill hoses and inspect the sediment screens on the fill valve (located on the back of the washer).
3. Using cottom swabs, you can clean the sediment screens using some distilled vinegar. If the valve is heavily encrusted with hard water deposits, using a toothpick (along with the distilled vinegar) can help break up these deposits and clear the screens.

You may have to remove the entire inlet valve and let it soak in distilled vinegar to break up serious deposits. If it comes to that, open the washer to access the fill valve and disconnect the electrical connectors on the valve solenoids (there's usually two of them). Remove the rubber hose leading to the dispenser, and then remove the mounting screw(s) holding the valve in place. It comes out pretty easily. DO NOT submerge the entire valve when allowing it to soak. Keep the solenoid connectors as dry as possible. If the vinegar does not work, you may try some retail products that get rid of scale, rust and lime deposits. Although I do not get into the business of promoting any one product over another, CLR comes to mind as a product that does work well.

If you do not wish to go through all of this and/or cleaning does not work for you. It is recommended that you replace the valve. Let me know what you decide to and I can assist you further. I hope this is helpful to you.

PS A replacement water inlet valve generally costs in the neighborhood of $30 - $50.

Washing machine clogged with dirt


You probably have sediment clogged in the inlet hoses and/or screens in the water inlet valve of the washer. First, turn off your water taps in the back of the washer. Disconnect the hoses one at a time and insert them in the wash tub. Turn the water taps back on to see if you are getting water through the lines. If not, you will need to remove the hoses and flush them out. If the hoses appear fine, inspect the sediment screens on your water inlet valve (this is where the hoses connect to). You can use cotton swabs to remove most sediment. If you cannot get the screens to clear and/or if sediment has gotten inside the water inlet valve, you will probably have to replace it. Try flushing the lines and cleaning the sediment screens, first, though. I hope this helps you.
