Take off the pressure to the inlet valve or valves by turning off the wall supply

Unscrew the hose connectors making sure that you mark which ones they go back onto if your machine fills both hot and cold

Look inside the opening there will be lots of gung inside , pull out the filters carefully

You may need a pair or long nosed pliers

Wash out the filters and re-assemble

If that does not improve the flow , change the valve

Water wont stop filling up


If water keeps filling or dribbling into the machine with the power off it's the water inlet solenoid. If it overfills only during the cycle then it is the pressure switch or pressure switch tube.

Washing machine won't fill. i filled it by hand with water, it won't agitate either, only spins.


The inlet solenoid is probably bad. And it won't agitate unless it fills and stops filling automatically.

Washer takes about an hour to fill halfway with water


Check the solenoids on the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Our ice maker plus WHIRLPOOL is not working


If the fill tube gets choked up with ice, it usually means that the water fill solenoid valve is leaking. The valve is not closing properly and is dribbling water. If the leakage is slow enough, water may freeze in the fill tube. Over time it will freeze the tube completely shut.

My ice maker overflows


If the fill tube gets choked up with ice, it usually means that the water fill solenoid valve is leaking. The valve is not closing properly and is dribbling water. If the leakage is slow enough, water may freeze in the fill tube. Over time it will freeze the tube completely shut. or it could be that the ice maker is not level.
