I have a GW512. The cold water is only trickling into the machine. The hot works fine. I have checked and switched hoses and cleaned them etc. Still only trickles in to the machine. Would it be the inlet...

Hi dan, in all probability it is your inlet solinoid valve, due to high sediment build up in the main water supply can cause the inner diaphragm of the inlet solinoid valve to clog up and stick. you can pick up a new inlet valve anywhere from $25-$60 depending on the appliance spare parts outlet. If you produce your model number with the name of the machine to the spareparts store they will easily be able assist in your matter, even better supplying the spareparts store with the inlet solinoid from the machine, thumbs up if this helps thanks.

Cold water won't flow fast. Hot water only is fine warm water is slow and cold water almost nothing. Cleaned filter etc Thank you

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
The best way is to explain this is like this the washing machines water inlet valve has a solinoid for the hot and a solinoid for the cold and when one of these start to fail the will slowly close untill the solinoid will no longer allow the valve to open so this is why your water pressure is getting low going into the machine for the cold side ok?
So what you are going to have to do is to replace the faulty water valve solinoid.
I would really suggest to replace the valve as a whole it ensures that you have a new part.ok?
Hope this helps if yo need any further dissassembly help let me know and i can assist you if needed
Best regards Mike..

Water is filling the tub when not in use

One of the water inlet solenoid valves is faulty -- it's not closting when the "water-fill" function is off. The solenoid valves are the parts the hoses on the back of the wahser are connected to. There are two -- hot and cold.

Cleaning them and replacing wahsers / O-rings / gaskets may solve the problem or may need to be replaced. More info, let me know.

No cold water coming in...screens are clean in valve.

If you have already confirmed that the screens are clean and the fill hoses are not kinked or clogged, this problem is commonly caused by a bad solenoid on the water inlet valve. The valve will have to be replaced to correct the problem.

Is this a FRONT LOADER? Or is this a TOP LOADER?

If this is a FRONT LOADER the following link explains how to access and replace the inlet valve:

If this is a TOP LOADER, the following link explains how to access and replace the inlet valve:

Replacement parts (if required) can be found at the following websites:

The average cost varies, so shop and compare. The first three websites I listed also have helpful exploded view parts diagrams that can help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Water drips into the bin after spin cycle

It sounds like the cold inlet valve is sticking.
The only solution would be to replace the inlet valve.

Water pooling in washer in between loads

The problem is caused by a leaking water inlet valve and the only way to solve it is by replacing the water inlet valve assembly. It is an easy "do-it-yourself" fix that only requires a minimum effort.

Water Inlet Valve Replacement Procedure
  1. Remove the three screws at the back of the machine holding the top cover.
  2. Slide the top cover to the back and lift it from the washer.
  3. Put a bucket or pan under the inlet valves.
  4. Remove the fill hoses from the machine and drain the water into the bucket or pan to avoid flooding your floor.
  5. Remove the screws holding the water inlet valve assembly to the back of the machine.
  6. Use a pair of pliers to press the spring clamp holding the inlet hose to the inlet valve assembly and move the spring clamp away.
  7. Install the new water inlet valve assembly and all other parts disassembled in reverse order of the procedure above.
  8. Make sure to clean the fill hose filters, if there's any, before attaching it to the water inlet valve assembly.

My icemaker has stop making ice, but all the lights on the front are green. it is a whirpool gold side by side, stainless

Check you water inlet filter if you have one, if you do not have a filter then it may be that you water inlet solinoid valve is faulty or has some debris in it. Check at the bottom of the refrigerator, that is where the water inlet solinoid is normally located. The water inlet line will attach to it. Remove it and check to see if it can be taken apart and cleaned. If it cannot be cleaned then it will have to be replaced. Good luck, I hope this helps, Please Rate me, Thanks

Hello there :
Yes you are right this solinoid valve when they fail will fail in the closed positin thus not letting any water into the maching
and yes this is a replaceable part if you can get the back of the machine off and get to the solinoid valve there are 2 or 3 wires that connect it electrically so make sure to mark these wires for identification and get the right part the rest is pretty easy and self explanitory ok?

Replacing water inlet valve

First of all, UNPLUG the washer before attempting any repairs, and follow these steps:

1. You will need to remove the washer top panel by loosening the three screws in the back. With the screws removed, the panel slides back, then off.
2. Turn off the water supply valves and disconnect the water inlet hoses.
3. The inlet valve should be very simple to replace at this point. Disconnect the electrical connections and the hose(s) leading from the valve to the dispenser.
4. There should be a a mounting screw holding the inlet valve to the back panel. Remove the old inlet valve and install the new valve in the reverse order of the steps I just provided.

This is should be a fairly straight forward repair that anyone can accomplish without the assistance of a repairman. If you get confused along the way, please post back and let me know. i hope this answers your questions.
