Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a hotpoint heavy duty 2 speed washing machine. I need to replace the water inlet valve. Can I find this part at Lowes or Home Depot. When my washing machine is unplugged water pours into it so I had to turn the water supply off. I'm told this is the water inlet valve.

The most likely cause for water fill temperature problems is the solenoid has burned out, usually cold first, it gets used more. Not a repairable item , easy to replace

SOURCE: washing machine won't spin dry

If this is a top load clothes washer, almost all units will not spin if the door is open during the cycle time when it should be spinning. If the door is closed, check if the door safety interlock is broken (on most washers, you will see a pin on the door pressing into a little depression)

If these things check out, you probably have a failed transmission deep inside the clothes washer. Fixing that is non-trivial.

My kenmore 80 series washing machine makes a horrible noise and cold side fills about half speed when filling with water. What should I check?


For the slow water issue, you will need to replace the water inlet valve. Here is a link to the part.
Could you describe the noise and where it is coming from?

Whirlpool heavy duty super capacity plus machine. Does this model have an water input filter. Water flow is very low while filling.


First you should remove the hoses and clean the screens in the ends of the hose, some hoses have screens in both ends. While the hoses are removed look inside the water inlet valve there should be a screen in there also remove and clean the screen out. Some screens will not be removable so you will need to clean in place or remove the water inlet valve. If all is clear you will need to check the solenoids on the water inlet valve for power.If the solenoid has power when put in a fill cycle and no water eneters your washer you will need to replace the water inlet valve. Most water inlet valves must be replaced as a unit, so if one solenoid fails you replace the hole valve assembly. These are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru the testing procedure. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. If you need help disassembling there are also videos of disassembling most styles. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models will be available. All parts come with installation instructions.

No water is going in


Check the water water supply at the water inlet valve. Remove the supply hoses and check that the small screens in the inlet valve are not clogged with rust or debris. The water inlet valve solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve will need to be replaced. I am attaching a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

The water will not stop running


Just after the pace where water pipe connects there's inlet valve [plastic moulded coil, dimmensions about 1"x1"x1"] it sits on the water intake line and there's twi wires connected to it.
Just replace it, As it's foulty and doesn't respond do actual open/close commands

Good luck

Admiral washing machine no cold water

Cold water trickle hot water runs good


turn off water valves at wall, disconnect the supply hoses from the washer. where the hoses connect to the washer, there is usually a stainless steel screen/strainer inline on both the hot and cold inlet. corrosion on the cold side is pretty common. Menards, Lowes Home Depot stores sell the replacment screeens.
